THE GROUT GUY Prepare for The Cooler Weather with The Grout Guy

When it’s time to switch out your wardrobe for seasonal weather, it’s also time to start preparing your home for the changing temperatures. Cooler weather can cause more grout issues, and if you’re not aware of the warning signs and don’t take steps toward prevention, you could end up dealing with a costly repair bill later on.

No need to panic yet, though. The Grout Guy is here to ensure you have clean, sparkling grout all year round!

How Temperature Fluctuations Affect Grout

As temperatures drop, your home’s grout can be vulnerable to damage. You may think that leaving your grout as-is will suffice, but the truth is that it needs regular TLC to survive the colder months without getting discoloured, stained, or cracked.

The reason is pretty simple: Grout is made of porous material, meaning it’s susceptible to absorbing moisture from the air. When cold weather arrives and we have hotter, long showers our bathrooms are exposed to more humidity, and your grout becomes extra vulnerable to staining, discoloration and persistent mould and mildew issues.

Tips for Tailoring Your Grout Maintenance for the Cooler Weather

When the cooler weather kicks in, you don’t want to be caught out by problems with your grout. But regular maintenance can help ensure that your grout is strong and healthy all season long.

The key to successful grout maintenance is tailoring your routine to the season. In warmer weather, you may need to pay extra attention to cleaning dirt and build up—but when temperatures dip, the risk of mould and mildew forming increases.

Here are some grout care tips for colder weather:

  • Make use of soft cleaners: Harsh chemicals can damage grout, so opt for products that are specifically designed for tile and other stone surfaces.
  • Good ventilation is key: Although the weather is cooler outside, once you are clean and dry make sure you leave any windows open a little to ensure there is some air flow possible.
  • Wipe down your shower after each use: Letting dirt and soap scum build up can allow mould and mildew to grow behind it, make sure you wipe down all tiles and grout each time you use it to ensure nothing nasty has a chance to grow in between showers!

To sum it up, cooler weather can mean more grout problems for your home. To be prepared for the coming chill, it’s important to start preparing your home for the season now. Make sure to check for existing grout issues, and if you find any simply call our friendly team of grout experts!
