By DAVID PORTERPosted June 06, 2018 06:17:48 A homeowner who discovered a grouting problem in a house in New York City was shocked when she saw the entire ceiling grouting and flooring.
The grout problem is an area that is especially difficult to clean out and is difficult to replace because it is the only visible area that isn’t fully covered in grout.
In addition, grouts can grow over time and will be difficult to remove once they start to develop.
“I was kind of shocked,” said Elizabeth R. Schmitt, a homeowner from New York who lived in the house in Brooklyn.
“It’s a really, really large area and you don’t want to dig into it, especially in a large house.”
Ricky Bunch is a resident of the home.
He was cleaning up the grout when he noticed the ceiling grout that had appeared and then spread into the living area.
He said he used a broom to clean it off.
“The problem is that this is a very, very large area,” he said.
“You don’t have the ability to pull it out of it.”
Roughly one-third of the grouts in a home are created by the action of air bubbles, while the other third are caused by dirt, soil or moisture in the soil.
Bunch said he was shocked to see so much dirt.
“It’s very easy to see a lot of dirt on the ceiling,” he told ABC News.
“The only way you can pull it away is to actually take it out.
It’s really easy to do.”
Ridgell Moseley is a certified grout removal expert and is an award-winning home inspector.
He has helped more than 50 homeowners with grout cleaning since 2007.
He said the problem can occur on the bottom of the house, but he said it’s not a common problem because it’s easier to clean on the top.
“If you have a house that has grout all over the place, then there is a chance that there’s a problem with it,” Mosely said.
“In my experience, it’s very rare to have any problems with this type of issue.”
