We are buying a house with tumbled marble tile counters/backsplash. We have never had tile or marble counter tops, and I have a lot of questions about them that are hard to look up on websites. I'm hoping that someone can help me out.
The grout is in bad shape, and appears to be more "plastic like" than traditional cement style grout. Could it be epoxy grout?
How do I clean it effectively?
I am not a germ-a-phob, but I do worry about chemicals/raw meats etc. soaking into the grout-would epoxy grout be the best choice?
Can epoxy grout be re-grouted, or does it need to be removed and replaced?
I read on HGTV's site that the tiles need to be sealed before epoxy grout is used-how do I do this?
How often does epoxy grout need attention?
How often should tumbled marble tiles need sealing?
What is the best way to clean tumbled marble tiles?
