Tiled surfaces appear within multiple areas of a house. From showers and flooring to countertops, backsplash, and fireplaces, tile and its counterpart grout may be present in most rooms of your house. However, like any type of building material, both grout and tile come with their share of issues.
If you’re experiencing tile problems, you aren’t alone. Having an idea of which problems can arise will keep you on top of maintenance and ahead of any problems in the future. Below we list a few of the main problems that homeowners are faced with concerning bathroom tile:
Tile that’s exposed to water will suffer mineral buildup. If you view a white, heavy haze that covers your pool, bath, or shower tiles, mineral buildup is the culprit. All water has minerals. Specific kinds of water, like well water, may contain greater levels. When the water coats the tile, so will the minerals. However, when the water evaporates, the minerals get left behind, and create a build-up of mineral.
Mildew and Mold
Mildew and mold are especially huge problems in areas susceptible to moisture, which includes bathroom floor tile, shower tile, and backsplash that surrounds sinks. The grout that surrounds the tile is porous and absorbs wetness, which creates the ideal breeding spot for mildew and mold.
