Grouted areas in showers deteriorate quicker than other areas given the frequency of wetting and the quantity of and chemicals found in body washes and other cleaners. 

The water and chemicals deplete the grout composition and ultimately the grout becomes powdery, breaks down, cracks or falls out entirely resulting in an a compromised installation.

Water flowing through a single grout defect is unable to escape can accumulate and at best will deplete the adhesive properties of the tile fixative or in the longer term with capillary action be drawn past the waterproofing membrane and over the shower threshold onto unprotected areas of flooring.

Ultimately this causes swelling of the timber floor will crack your tiles or become loose.creates timber to rot, floors to swell, tiles to delaminated and of course additional cracks in the grout, accelarating the process.

In showers it is normal for water to sit under the tiles and then drains out to the drain system. The incorrect application of water-proofing system that is installed prior to tile installation, adhesive comb direction not facing the drain, the maintenance on the drain assembly unit is only minor to the biggest culprit grout and silicon deterioration.

That is why it is imperative to protect your grout from the amount of water penetration. There is no product in the market that can be applied to your grout that will make it water-proof. Sealers are a one way valve, inhibit penetration but allows water vapour to be released through the grout joints and natural stone. All grout sealer in showers must be breathable sealers.

If water-proofing over grout and stone has been applied, the stone can’t breath so condense occurs under the surface. A chemical change occurs to the cementing agent in the stone, the stone breaksdown and you are left with a powdery, pitted unattractive stone. Lustre stripping and Lustre resurfacing treatments will restore the stone.

Lustre injects specially designed two pot high viscosity slow curing fluid that will flow to the areas that needs to be stopped for water penetration.

Grout restoration and Re-grout the area and sealing or colourseal will give extra protection.

Silicon, caulking or expansion joints that are missing or delaminating require to be replaced.
