Grout, the traditional material used to fill gaps between tiles, has been a staple in bathroom construction for many years. But it comes with a host of disadvantages, especially in areas of the home that are prone to moisture and high traffic, such as bathrooms and kitchens.
At MaxHome, we understand the challenges that grout presents. That’s why we’ve shifted away from this antiquated method and embraced non-porous materials for all our surfaces. From our shower walls infused with silver ions to prevent mold and mildew growth to our non-abrasive cleaning recommendations, we aim to provide a hassle-free and sanitary experience.
Disadvantages of Grout:
- Staining and Dirt Accumulation: Grout can easily become dirty and stained, especially in areas where water is frequently used. It requires regular scrubbing with specialized solutions, and even then, it may never return to its original appearance.
- Mold and Mildew Growth: Moist environments can cause mold and mildew to form within the grout lines. Even using bleach solutions to clean it might not prevent this issue from reoccurring.
- Regular Maintenance Required: Sealing the grout is necessary to create a barrier that protects it from stains and dirt. Even then, periodic re-sealing and attentive cleaning are needed to keep the grout looking its best.
MaxHome’s Grout-Free Solutions:
In contrast, all of MaxHome’s surfaces use non-porous materials, eliminating the problems associated with grout. Our shower walls are uniquely infused with silver ions, preventing mold and mildew from growing. The ease of maintenance is another benefit of our solutions – for cleaning surfaces, just a mild dish soap and a non-abrasive sponge are required.
From tub-to-shower conversions or walk-in/bathtub remodeling, allow MaxHome to upgrade your bathroom with our grout-free, non-porous surfaces. Explore even more bathroom solutions with MaxHome, and leave the troubles of grout behind.
