Avoid Shower Mold with Acrylic Shower Walls vs Tile and Grout

The Pitfalls of Tile and Grout & Why Acrylic Shower Walls That Look Like Tile Are a Better Choice

Tile and grout have been a staple of bathroom remodeling for generations – but they’ve been causing problems like shower mold, grout stains, and crumbling shower walls for just as long. While tile may be seem like an attractive design feature in your bath remodel, acrylic shower walls that look like tile give you all the style you’re looking for with none of the hassle.  

Why Tile and Grout Fail - and What Causes Shower Mold and Grout Stains

Mold and mildew are among the most common problems in bathrooms, and that’s not just because of the plumbing. The grout holding your tile in place is the real culprit. Here’s why: 

  1. Grout is made from sand, which makes it highly porous. This means water will penetrate grout every time you take a shower, let the kids splash in the bathtub, or bathe your pets.  
  2. Over time, water becomes trapped in the grout, causing it to deteriorate – just like sand being washed away from a sand castle.  
  3. As the grout breaks down, more moisture will be able to seep in behind the tiles and into the walls of your shower, creating the perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow.  
  4. When shower mold and mildew start, they’re almost impossible to stop. Eventually your tile walls will start showing grout stains that will never come clean again – all while your shower walls and continue to fail from the inside out.

Re-grouting your shower can be a maintenance headache, and would need to be done multiple times to make sure your grout stays intact for the life of your home – and that’s after you’ve solved any water damage and shower mold problems behind the walls first.
