    Thanks for explaining how grout prevents water from getting in and needs to be well looked after to prevent staining and other problems. If your grout starts leaking, it would probably be best to hire a professional to repair it. This could help it last longer and prevent water from damaging other parts of your home in order to avoid costly repairs later on.
