detergent to the water. If you feel a cleaning agent is required, use a mild solution of warm water and dishwasher crystals (they will not result in a heavy, difficult-to-remove lather on the grout). Rinse thoroughly. Remember to wipe spills away promptly to avoid staining the grout.
The tile installed on walls or countertops in your home may be washed with any nonabrasive soap, detergent or tile cleaner. Abrasive cleaners will dull the finish.
Grout Discoloration Clean any grout that becomes yellowed or stained with a fiber brush, cleanser and water. Grout cleansers and whiteners are available at most hardware stores. Sealing Grout Sealing grout is your decision and responsibility. Once grout has been sealed, ongoing maintenance of that seal is necessary and limited warranty coverage on grout that has been sealed may be voided. Check with the manufacturer before sealing your grout. Separations Expect slight separations to occur in the grout between tiles. Cracks in the grout can be filled using premixed grout purchased from flooring or hardware stores. Follow package directions. Tile around bathtubs or countertops may appear to be pulling up after a time. This is caused by normal shrinkage of grout or caulk and shrinkage of wood members as they dry out. If this occurs, the best remedy is to purchase tub caulk or premixed grout from a hardware store. Follow directions on the container. This maintenance is important to protect the underlying surface from water damage. Tile is Brittle Tile is relatively brittle and can be broken by a sharp blow from a heavy object, and is not covered under our warranty. Hollow Surrounding Areas It is not a workmanship defect for the tiles to sound hollow. We will only replace a tile that sounds hollow when the grout is cracked completely around the tile. Century Communities Limited Warranty Guidelines Prior to closing, we confirm that tile and grout areas are in acceptable condition. We will repair or replace cracked, badly chipped or loose tiles noted at that time. Century Communities is not responsible for variations in color or discontinued patterns. New grout may vary in color from the original. One-Time Repair Cracks appearing in grouting of tiles at joints or junctions with other materials are commonly due to shrinkage. Century Communities will repair grouting, if necessary, at the one year anniversary. We are not responsible for color variations in grout or discontinued colored grout. Any grouting or caulking that is needed after that time is your responsibility.
