What Causes Grout to Crack

Grout, the construction material used to fill the spaces between tiles, is often an afterthought for most homeowners. However, if the grout in their tile floors begins to show signs of wear, including cracking, it can quickly become an unsightly problem. More importantly, cracked or damaged grout can lead to damage to the floors themselves.

If you or someone you know has problems with the grout in your home, a professional cleaning company may be able to help you. Contact the Arlington tile and grout cleaning specialists of WOW Total Cleaning today at 817-239-9441 to discuss your situation with a trained service professional and schedule a cleaning appointment.

Common Causes of Cracked Grout

Cracked or damaged grout is often caused by installation issues. The most common of these causes include:

  • The grout wasn’t packed tightly enough into the joint
  • Original grout mixture contained too much water
  • Grout was packed after cement hydration had started
  • Insufficient sealant applied over the top of the grout

Other common causes of cracked or damaged grout are typically related to the size and spacing of the floor joints, and may be difficult to resolve. However, in many cases, services offered by professional cleaning companies can extend the lifespan of the grout in your home.
