Techniques for Cleaning Surface Mold

Surface molds grow in just about any damp location, such as the grout lines of a ceramic tiled shower. They\'re easy to scrub away with a mixture of 1/2 cup bleach, 1 qt. water and a little detergent. The bleach in the cleaning mixture kills the mold, and the detergent helps lift it off the surface so you can rinse it away so it won\'t return as fast. You can also buy a mildew cleaner at hardware stores, paint stores and most home centers.

Even for simple cleaning, protect yourself from contact with mold and the bleach solution by wearing a long-sleeve shirt and long pants as well as plastic or rubber gloves and goggles.

If the mold doesn\'t disappear after light scrubbing, reapply the cleaning mix and let it sit for a minute or two. Then lightly scrub again.

Seal the clean surfaces when they\'re thoroughly dry to slow future moisture penetration. Apply a grout sealer (available at tile shops and home centers) to tile joints.


Caution!

Don\'t mix ammonia or any detergent containing ammonia with bleach. The combination forms a poisonous gas.

How to Grout ceramic tile to shower base


Don't use grout! Instead use silicone caulk that matches your grout color as close as possible. Never grout where tile meets at a 90 degree angle it will crack.

I had a shower total replacement less than two years ago. Company out of business now. Shower grout has cracked bad at base and in corner all the way down. I need to re-grout. Problem is the gap in corner...


Use a good quality bath and tub caulk applied to the deeper parts of the gap. Do not fill all the way out to the top of the gap with the caulk. When the caulk is dry, then apply the same color grout over the caulk.

How to clean mold from shower tiles


bleach. spray it on and leave it.. make sure you have good ventilation and never mix it with anything else. if the tiles have caulking around them then you will probably have to get a grout tool to remove it and then re-grout. good luck

How do you remove wall tiles


Follow following steps -

1.Decide where to remove the grout
2. Scrape the grout away with a utility knife
3.Try a rotary grinder instead.
4.Remove grout until the spacer lugs are visible.
5.Chisel tiles away from the wall.
6.Break the tile if necessary.


If the tiles are grouted, you will have to clear the grout away first. There are inexpensive tools designed specifically for grout removal. After removing the grout, use a small pry bar or a similar tool to pry the tiles away from the wall. Most likely, though, if the tiles were installed onto drywall, the drywall will be damaged during removal. Fortunately, drywall is relatively easy to replace. Once the drywall surface is ready, new tiles can be attached with tile adhesive or mastic. Regrout and seal the tile around the new tiles. *If the new tiles are natural stone they will be very porous and will need to be sealed and dry BEFORE installation.

I'm insytalling new tile in shower should the frame of the shower doors be caulked?


Hello. Definitely yes. You want the tile, grout and caulk to be a semipermanent barrier for the water. If you do not caulk the frame, water will get in there and either leak or cause mold to form. Use a good quality silicon caulk, either clear, or white or a color that matches your grout lines. J.
