Grout Removal Tool Selection for Bathrooms (Quick Tips) — by Home Repair Tutor

Grout removal tool selection is important. We discuss 3 options in today’s video. Our online courses have more awesome tips If you’re removing a small area of grout, say for a subway tile, a handheld tool will work. The small grout saws in the video are only a few bucks and work well. They do take a bit of effort though. Also, be careful not to scratch the surrounding tile. Furthermore, if your tile is clay based you don’t want to nick it as this will reveal the dark clay under the finished edge…not good. What tool is best for large ares of grout removal? I’d recommend using an oscillating multi-tool. In the video I show you the FEIN MultiTalent. Lately I’ve been testing this tool and really like it. That said, any multi-tool worth that’s a good one will have a grout removal blade. You’ll likely have to buy the grout removal blade separately and they cost $20-$30. But these carbide blades are the best option for removing grout because they work very well. Again, be careful not to scratch the tile with the multi-tool. And make sure to use a respirator so that you don’t inhale all the grout dust. It’s also a good idea to use a shop vac with the multi-tool to cut down on the dust. Check out my video to see the tools in action and to get a few more tips Btw, this is my CYA, I’m not responsible for any tile damage…it’s up to you to be responsible and ensure you don’t harm yourself or your bathroom.
