fungus or mold on grout
  • I think I have a fungus, mold, or something on my grout. I have used soft scrub with bleach, bleach and water, and even straight bleach, but it is back the next day. It is brown in color. There is a "glob" about 3/4 inch and then dots of the brown stuff along the grout from the glob. Any suggestions on how to get rid of this?
  • In what room of the house? Is there a water source, such as a toilet, tub or shower nearby? There are a couple of solutions possible. First, you can try digging out the affected area of the grout, and re-grout. The grout will adhere to itself. If the spotting is a symptom of a bigger problem, such as moisture under the floor, it may be helpful to remove a tile and check underneath to determine. You can forward a picture to info@snapstone.net and we'll take a look to see if we can help identify the cause. Also include a contact phone number. Thank you.
