Grout Color Stain, Your Questions Answered

The Grout Medic receives many questions about grout color stain.

As long-standing grout care and repair professionals, we would like to take this opportunity to answer some common color stain questions all in one place.  It’s simple to perform a search online for information concerning changing your grout color, but often times the answers you find are erroneous or out-dated.  The most common question homeowners ask is whether they can do the job instead of hiring a professional.  And while there are various products and tutorials available, we highly recommend hiring a professional grout staining company.

Can you stain grout a different color?

The Grout Medic can stain your healthy grout a different color.

Yes, grout color can be changed a little or a lot, depending on your preference.  The Grout Medic performs custom color staining for any type of tile, on any tiled surface.

Is grout color staining the same as color sealing?

Does grout color stain work on epoxy grout?

Yes, there are specially formulated color stains that can change the color of epoxy grout.  Epoxy grout is not as porous as cement based grout products, so we recommend consulting a professional to ensure whether your grout is a good candidate for color staining.

Must my grout be cleaned before a color stain can be applied?

The end result of any grout improvement service will greatly rely on preparation.  Grout must be thoroughly cleaned before any color staining or clear grout sealing service.  If color staining is applied to dirty grout, the color will not look great, nor will the stain properly penetrate the surface of your grout for a long-lasting result.
