New Grout Shield cleans and restores old grout to look brand new
The New Grout Shield Restoration System is a revolutionary new way to clean and restore old grout, making any tiled area look brand new again. Grout Shield recolours and seals grout so that it is no longer porous and therefore protects it from future stains, mould and mildew, making it extremely easy to clean and maintain.
Currently, if a tiled wall or floor is stained, you can either achieve some level of short term fix with a bleach-based cleaner, or spend a lot of time, money and effort, regrouting . Either way the grout remains porous and will continue to attract stains. Grout Shield offers a new and better third alternative - clean, restored and sealed grout, that looks great, stays clean, protects from mould and what's more, is easy to do.
Grout Shield Colour Seal is an acrylic resin containing a modified polyurethane sealant which chemically bonds with existing grout to form a professional, durable and superior finish. It is easy to apply, significantly cheaper than regrouting and offers ongoing, sealed-in protection for up to 10 years. It comes in four colours (white, off white, beige and grey) allowing the option to restore the original colour or change it.
Grout Shield can be used on the vast majority of indoor tiled surfaces, either man-made or natural stone and on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. It works with any grout making it ideal for washrooms, toilets, changing rooms, kitchens, in fact any tiled area and is ideal for hotels, restaurants, sports and leisure clubs, schools, hospitals and much more.
The Grout Shield Restoration System contains all you need to do the job. One bottle of Grout Shield Colour Seal will cover 25sqm of 30 x 30cm tiles and take approx 2 - 3 hours to complete. There are six bottles in a contractor pack. There's no need to remove the old grout first and it will be completely dry and ready-to-use three hours after application.
"We are very excited to be launching Grout Shield in the UK and initial interest in the product has already been enormous," says Richard Davis, Managing Director of Kilrock Products. "With Grout Shield, facilities managers and contract cleaners will have access to a fast, efficient and new way of restoring tired and stained looking tiles, literally, at their fingertips."
Grout Shield Colour Seal and Pre-Cleaner are environmentally friendly and safe around children and pets. Brand leader in the States, Grout Shield is used worldwide, including a well-know theme park in Florida!
