Hi, this is Nicholas Larocci, the home source guy, president and owner of Source Development Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York, and this is how to patch bad tile grout. Okay, so essentially we have to remove the grout. Whether it's a hairline fracture or, it's a full, you know, chip out of it, we have to remove it. We're gonna use some sort of a grout saw. So this is a manual grout saw, and they have any numerous types. This is a diamond, excuse me, a triangular grout V groove, but I love this oscillating saw, it's great, easy for the homeowner to use also. It's got a diamond blade on it, and it just dissolves the grout right away. Anyway, we're gonna start by removing the grout joint. So once our grout joint's removed, we wanna make sure that it's clean. Use our grout brush and just brush it off. We're gonna mix grout, and depending on the application we need, we're gonna mix an unsanded grout for joints below an eighth of an inch, and sanded for joints above an eighth of an inch. We're gonna push the grout into the joint with our finger or a grout float if you're using larger areas. Once that's done, we're gonna remove the excess from the tile with a damp sponge. Once that's been removed and dried, we're gonna wipe the haze off with a damp cloth. And that was how to patch bad tile grout. This is Nicholas Larocci, the home source guy, president and owner of Source Development Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York, helping you build a better life. We'll see you next time.
