Fix Water Seepage for Good

Water seepage may seem like a minor issue, but it can cause significant damage to your home. Unfortunately, many homeowners are unaware of the gradual damage being done through small breaches resulting from broken grout and shrinking caulk. These small gaps can easily lead to mold, mildew growth, and even structural damage. 

 

The good news is that water damage has an effective and reliable solution. At The Grout Medic, we offer professional water damage repair to any tiled surface. We use advanced techniques to remove and replace water-damaged areas behind your tile structure, ensuring your family’s safety and preventing any health risks associated with mold and mildew or future damage to your home. Contact us for professional water damage repairs and continued care to prevent future water seepage.

How Our Water Damage Repair Process Works

Repairing water damage to tiles involves addressing the effects of moisture on the tiles, grout, and underlying surfaces. Here’s a general run-down of how tile water damage repair works:

  1. Identify the source of water damage: Before we can begin the repair process, it’s important to identify and address the source of the water damage. It could be a leaky pipe, faulty plumbing, or inadequate waterproofing in the shower area. Fixing the source of the water intrusion is crucial to prevent further damage.
  2. Assess the extent of the damage: We carefully inspect the tiles, grout, and surrounding surfaces to determine the extent of the water damage, looking for signs of discoloration, warping, mold growth, or loose tiles. We will assess if the damage is limited to the surface or if it has affected the underlying structure.
  3. Remove damaged tiles and grout: If the tiles or grout are severely damaged or compromised, we may need to remove them. To do this, we use a grout saw or chisel to carefully remove the grout surrounding the damaged tiles. Then, we gently pry out the damaged tiles, being cautious not to damage the surrounding tiles.
  4. Repair underlying surfaces: If the water damage has affected the underlying surfaces, such as drywall or subfloor, they may need to be repaired or replaced. We will replace any damaged materials and ensure the surface is dry, stable, and suitable for tiling.
  5. Replace tiles: After fixing the underlying surfaces, we then install new tiles in the place of the damaged ones. We’ll apply an appropriate adhesive or thin-set mortar to the back of each tile, ensuring full coverage. Then we press the tiles firmly into place, making sure they are level and aligned with the existing tiles. Finally, we allow the adhesive or mortar to dry according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  6. Grout the repaired area: Once the new tiles are securely in place, we apply grout to fill the gaps between them. Using a grout float to spread the grout at a 45-degree angle, we firmly press it into the joints and then remove any excess grout from the tile surface using a damp sponge. We then let the grout cure according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  7. Seal the tiles and grout: To provide added protection against water damage, we may apply a sealant to the tiles and grout. A quality tile and grout sealer will help prevent moisture penetration and make cleaning easier.
  8. Check for proper drainage: We will ensure that your shower has proper drainage to prevent water from pooling on the tiles and causing further damage, then clean the drain to remove any debris that may impede water flow.

Alvin and Jose are wonderful people to work with. Alvin was very knowledgeable and helpful with our decision to seal the grout lines in the kitchen and bathrooms of our home. We couldn’t be any more happy with the results. Floors looked brand new with the updated grout lines. Jose worked alone the entire day and was very efficient and cleaned up the area perfectly. Highly recommend this company!!

Alvin was great from start to finish. His customer service was remarkable. We had our bathroom shower and tub recaulked, as well as our vanity sinks, and also had our tile grout colored from a bone color to a burnt gray. I will say we had some issues with some of the recaulk and regrout the initial team completed. We let Alvin know our concerns, and he came out the next day and took care of our concerns. His motto is "I treat your home like its mine". I would recommend 👍🏾
