All of a sudden bright tiles are back in vogue and we have seen a resurgence in grout cleaning of late. The most cost effective way to achieve this look is to clean out the current grout and re-grout or re-colour. In some instances a simple clean will suffice. Re-colouring is ideal if your floor is badly stained and your existing colour is already white or cream in colour. This is an affordable option particularly considering the cost of regrouting or worse, replacing a floor.
Grout is a porous substance. One of the most common complaints with tiled floors is discolouration of the grout between the tiles – meaning the floors never look clean.
Enter grout recolouring. After thoroughly cleaning the tiled floor area, an epoxy based colourant is applied to the grout joints, giving a consistent appearance and also sealing the grout to prevent future staining.
The epoxy sealant is available in a variety of colours to suit most decors and has an 8+ year life expectancy against peeling, chipping, cracking or fading. You will not believe how good this product is!
This service is particularly popular for high traffic areas (ie, kitchen and bathroom floors) where years of daily traffic have resulted in heavy soiling and discolouration of the grout.
A premium penetrating sealer is applied to the grout joints providing resistance to water, oil and general contaminants. This service is highly recommended for newly grouted or regrouted floors and is also very popular for kitchen splash-backs and bathroom wet areas.
Stainguarding does not alter the appearance of the grout (hence no before and after pics!), the sealer is invisible to the naked eye, sitting just below the surface. It prevents contaminants from penetrating into the grout pores.
Especially useful in wet areas like showers, Stainguarding will help to prevent the growth of mould and mildew and simplify cleaning and maintenance of the area.
Strictly Grout has the solution to meet your grout maintenance needs.
One of the fastest and most cost effective ways to transform any tiled floor, bathroom, laundry or kitchen splash back is to professionally clean your tiles and grout. Many experienced ‘house flippers’ or investors have been using this secret to add value to their homes for years. In fact, one of our clients saved over $13,500 because he had us clean and reseal his tiled floors.
It’s not just the money saved that provides our clients with huge smiles, it’s the immediate effect they see when we have finished the job. Many times we hear, “that looks like a new floor”. The team at Strictly Grout go the extra mile to ensure that their work adheres to current building codes and safety practices.

According to recent government research one in three aged people over 65 fall and have an accident. Falls are the leading cause of death in people 65 and over. This is a staggering statistic and one that can be reduced with the addition of a non-slip surface treatment to your tiled floors.
Lawyers are queuing up to assist on a no win-no fee basis for claims relating to falls and injuries due to negligence on behalf of the business or private home owner. It’s not uncommon to see payouts exceeding $50,000 to $150,000 for accidents of this nature. Why take the risk? Why have this on your mind?
You can minimise the risk by getting Strictly Grout to apply a non slip coating to your floor tiles. This surface technique doesn’t impact the look or your tiles but it does offer you stability and assurance which is paramount if the floor become wet.
Flooring, especially tiles are an expensive part of any home renovation project. On average a 4 bedroom home would cost in excess of $10,000 – $15,000 to tile, especially if you have floor to ceiling tiles in your bathrooms and wet areas. Fortunately, for most of the clients we meet they have saved thousands of dollars by simply having their tiles cleaned and regrouted.
This cost effective solution bring tired tiles to life withoput the need to jack hammer up or recover the old floor. If you are renovating or selling and want to improve the floor/wall tiles then consider having your tiles cleaned and regrouted by Strictly Grout.
On a recent project we saved one client over $7,000 in his renovation project and the money he saved he used towards adding improvements towards his kitchen.
