Remove Grout

When remodeling a bathroom or kitchen, the hardest part can be removing the grout from pre-existing tile. Grout is made from water, cement and sand, which hardens over time to form a rock-like material. The strength of grout is what makes tile so highly desired, as it prevents the tile from shifting. Learning how to remove grout can save you a lot of money that you would otherwise have to pay to a contractor.

Get the necessary tools. There are a number of tools which you can use to remove the grout. Those you choose will depend on how much money you wish to spend, how much and which type of grout you need to remove, and how often you intend to remove grout.

    • You can use power tools. There are a variety of tools, called grout removal tools or re-grout tools, which will help you remove grout quickly and with much less effort. These are helpful if you have a large amount of grout to remove or remove grout often.
    • You can use manual tools as well. If you for some reason cannot use power tools but find that you have a reasonable amount of grout to remove, use a manual grout removal tool. This will look like a small trowel.
    • If you only have a small amount of grout to remove or it is something soft like rubber grout, you can use a standard razor blade, like an exacto knife.Clean Green Carpet CleaningRead more at: http://www.wikihow.com/Remove-Grout
