Clean Green Carpet Cleaning

 

Choose a grout. There are three main types of grout: sanded, unsanded (or wall), and epoxy. They each have different benefits and downsides but it mainly comes down to how big the gaps (called grout joints) are that you are filling. Grouts contract as they dry, so using the correct one to minimize this effect is important.

    • Sanded grout is used for joints that are 1/8″ or larger. Sanded grout should not be used on polished marble or other easily scratched surfaces.
    • Unsanded grout. Unsanded grout is for joints 1/8″ or smaller, although once you’re above 1/16th it’s best to use sanded grout if at all possible.
    • Epoxy grout is much harder to apply because it dries so much faster but it lasts much longer and does not stain. This is a better type of grout to use, for example, with kitchen countertops. If you want an epoxy grout, it may be better to hire a professional.
