  • Why It’s Important to Seal Your Grout

    grout sealer

     

     

    It isn’t enough to just clean your grout, sealing it is just as important. With the right grout sealer, you won’t even have to worry about cleaning your grout as often, if at all!

     

    Whether it’s a newly cleaned or newly tiled kitchen floor or tiled bathroom shower, you want these places looking their best. Since you spent a lot of money on a new tile job or so much time cleaning the grout, it should look great, right? Grout sealers are the best solution to keep grout looking new year around. Grout isn’t as resilient to stains, dirt, and other grime, as tile is, so it’s in your best interest to seal it for an added boost of protection.

     

    Grout is porous, which means it easily absorbs liquids and other debris it comes in contact with. Ever spill wine on your tiled kitchen counter? You clean up the spill, and the tile looks sparkly clean but the grout is now a darker wine-stained color. If there had been a sealant on this grout, you could easily wipe away the wine spill and your grout would look like nothing ever touched it.

     

    Grout Shield offers grout sealers that make the grout become impenetrable; a shield is created so liquids can no longer penetrate the porous grout.  Grout Shield offers sealers in clear and color options. If you want to change the entire look of a room after cleaning the grout, a color sealer is a great way to make a frugal, smart way to update to the room without having to replace the tile or grout itself.

     

    Of course, no one is forcing you to seal your grout after you clean it or install new tile work; however, home experts recommend that you do invest in sealing the grout. The sealer will save you a lot of upkeep time, since the grout will remain brand new looking for years. Not only does the grout stay looking clean, but the sealer helps keep away mold and mildew from growing in the grout lines.

     

    Start Using a Grout Sealer

     

    Looking to have a low maintenance kitchen, bathroom, or pool area? Grout Shield sealers are your best bet to experience clean grout for longer! To purchase a grout sealer or to learn more about the product, click here or call 1-800-631-0716.

  • Don’t Forget to Seal Your Grout!

    grout sealer

    You just had your bathroom floor retiled. It looks perfect! You definitely want it to look this way forever. As the contractor finishes, you ask him if it needs to be sealed. There is a chance he may say, “No,” and there are a few reasons for this. One, he may have used an epoxy-based grout, which is a water-resistant material that doesn’t require a sealer. He may have used a grout that has a sealer in it. He may just personally feel the grout doesn’t need to be sealed. He may not feel like coming back. Or, he may tell you it needs to be sealed, but not yet.

    You DO want to seal the grout. But after an installation, it is best to wait a bit to put a sealer on the area. You want to allow the new grout to cure 48 to 72 hours before sealing. Right before you seal, double check the entire area and make sure none of the grout lines aren’t cracked or compromised in any way.

    The short time it takes to apply a grout sealer is something worth investing in. It’s a simple job. If you don’t apply a sealer, you run the risk of mold living in the grout or discolored and stained grout lines. That new bathroom floor you just had done? It could easily look old in a matter of days if not properly sealed. One small spill can ruin the entire look of the room.

    The bathroom is home to so many different liquids and dirt that can compromise your grout, including: mud, water, mouthwash, toothpaste, makeup, perfume, and soap. By sealing your grout, you will preserve the color of the grout from these products. The grout sealer soaks into the grout creating a barrier against anything that comes in contact with the grout.

    Depending on how much foot traffic goes on in your bathroom, you’ll want to reseal the area every six to 12 months.

     

    Sealing grout is important. If you don’t, dirt and liquid stains may become permanent, and all that money and time that went into your bathroom floor was for, essentially nothing. Grout Shield sells grout sealers are penetrating sealers designed to revitalize and protect grout.  To learn more about these grout sealers, click here or call 1-800-631-0716 for pricing estimates and more information.

  • How to Seal Stone and Slate Tile

    Stone or slate tiles do not come cheap. Many people opt for stone over ceramic tile because of their beautiful, natural look enhances a room in its own unique way. Since they are quite the investment to install in one’s home, it makes sense to properly care for them so they can last you several lifetimes!

    Just like regular tile, stone tile and the grout around it can collect and absorb dirt and liquids which stain and dull them. What’s the point in spending so much money on a great stone-tiled floor or backsplash if it always looks dirty? To prevent this from happening, it’s in a homeowner’s best interest to invest in a sealer that will brighten up the tile and prevent it from looking less-than-perfect in the future.

     

    With stone, it’s important to invest in a proper cleaner. Many cleaners contain ammonia and bleach, which will damage stone. After cleaning away the dirt with a proper cleaner, you can use a Grout Shield sealer to protect the tile and grout from future dirt and stains. Grout Shield products, like the Enhancer Seal, are safe to use on stone and slate. The Enhancer Seal can make ceramic, slate, terracotta, stone, marble or Mexican tile look vibrant and new. The sealer is extremely easy to use. Grout Shield Color Sealer can enhance the natural beauty of stone tile, as well. It helps bring out the tones within the stone, while protecting the stone at the same time. Check out this video below to watch how to use the sealer, and how well it brightens and restores the surface to its original condition:

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Restore Your Stone Tile

    Is your stone or slate tile in need of restoration? Do you miss the way the stone used to look like when it was new? You can get that same look back. Grout Shield Sealers can protect your grout from becoming stained, dirty, and discolored. Not sure which product to purchase? The professionals at Grout Shield can help you choose a product that will best work for what you need based on your space and type of tile.

  • Why It's Important to Clean Grout

    clean grout  clean grout

    Dirty grout doesn’t just look bad; it also isn’t very sanitary. Grout easily collects moisture, dirt, crumbs, bacteria, and basically absorbs anything it comes in contact with. Think of all the things that could possibly touch your grout: shoes, pets, food, water, poisonous chemicals, makeup, and more.

     

    Grout is porous, which is how it is able to absorb things it comes in contact with. Since it’s collecting all of this dirt, liquids, and water, it becomes a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. Even though you mop and scrub your floors and walls meticulously, bacteria can still thrive in the grout, because it’s been so deeply absorbed.

     

    A grout cleaner and sealer are the best solutions to getting rid of unsanitary and unsightly grout. You definitely don’t want to be walking on all those germs, or having your little child touching tiles and putting that bacteria into their mouth. All of the dirt within the grout can be very difficult to clean and keep clean. But with the ride grout cleaner and sealer, this process becomes a lot easier. You can spend less time cleaning the grout to restore it to a “like new” appearance.

     

    Since there are so many ways bacteria can land onto kitchen floor grout, we will explain the best way to de-germ this room’s grout. First, sweep the floor to remove any loose dirt or crumbs on the surface of the tiles and grout. Next, apply Grout Shield’s Grout and Tile Cleaner. Use a mop to distribute the cleaner over the entire floor. Allow the grout cleaner to saturate into the grout for 10 to 15 minutes, ten scrub the area with a grout or bristle brush. After you scrub the dirt away with a few brushstrokes, use a clean rag to wipe away any remaining grout cleaner.

     

    After you clean the grout with the cleaner, it’s a smart idea to utilize Grout Shield’s sealers to protect the grout from getting dirty, stained and germ-filled again.

     

    Keep that Grout Clean

    Keeping your grout clean is a great way to keep germs and sickness out of your home. Every time someone touches dirty grout, germs are spreading. After you use Grout Shield’s cleaner, ongoing maintenance and restoration is key to keeping these germs at bay. Grout Shield’s sealers, as well as our Maintenance Cleaner, will keep the floor clean and renewed.

  • Clean Mold in the Bathroom the Easy Way

    mold mold


    People spend a lot of time in the bathroom, so good hygiene in this area is important. The bathroom is a high moisture area, so germs and bacteria thrive in there. To keep a bathroom clean, people need to regularly clean the toilet, sink, floor, shower, and tub. However, many cleaners still leave the bathroom not looking shiny and new. Many cleaners wipe away germs on the surface, but the area looks like it hasn’t been cleaned at all. Why? Because the grout is stained!


    Layers of dirt, mold, mildew, and soap have built up over time and seeped deep into the pours of the grout. So no matter how much scrubbing or soap you use, your bathroom will never fully look clean!


    With Grout Shield products, people don’t have to deal with the sight of discolored and stained grout in their bathroom any longer. A clean bathroom can actually LOOK clean. Besides dirt and stains, mold is a big problem and culprit of discolored grout in bathrooms. Mold is unhealthy and should be removed immediately; however, it can be hard to remove from the grout. With Grout Shield Grout and Tile Cleaner, people are able to remove dirt and mold easily from any area in the bathroom. This cleaner also will remove any previous applied grout sealer allowing this product to bond to the grout and actually clean the area.


    After scrubbing away all the mold, mildew, and other dirt out of the grout, the next step is to apply a sealer so it’ll be harder for these things to build up in the grout again. Grout Shield sealers are able to resist mold and mildew. While sealing, a person also has the option to change the color of the grout at this time. Grout Shield’s sealers come in both clear and color options.


    Purchasing Grout Cleaner and Sealer

    Tired of spending time cleaning your bathroom when it still doesn’t look clean? It may be time for you to switch cleaners or cleaning methods, and restore the grout around your tiles. Grout Shield cleaners and sealers will remove dirt, germs, mold, and leave you with a sparkly-clean bathroom.

  • Grout Shield Testimonials

    UntitledThis is the third time I've purchased this item. The first was to do a bathroom shower enclosure in our older home, to get it ready to put on the market. The results: outstanding! It made a 30 year old tile job look absolutely brand new!We recently moved to a brand new home and saw how quickly the grout starts to get 'dirty' on a new grout bathroom floor (that wasn't sealed), so I purchased the second batch to seal the grout from new: perfection! ...so then I bought it a third time to do our Master Bathroom floor...totally awesome!I would highly recommend this great product.

  • Restoring Dirty Grout

    "... once you notice your grout is dirty, from that point forward when you look at that floor ... dirty grout will be the only thing you see!"

    It's a funny thing how you can go years and never give the grout in your tile floors, kitchens, and bathrooms a second thought. Then one day for no reason in particular your wandering eye just happens to notice a stained patch of grout, and then another ... you realize that while your tile still looks great ... the grout that separates the tiles is stained and discolored ... and greatly detracts from the overall appearance of your tile surface.

    In the bath area of a home stained grout surfaces can be particularly disturbing! Conversely, clean unsoiled grout always gives the appearance of a hygienic, well cared for living area. Grout Shield products are designed not only to beautify the area, but to seal it, and protect it from being stained in the months to come. Grout is a porous material, it naturally soaks up anything it comes in contact with. Grout Shields Color Seal effectivel fills these "pores", leaving behind an easy to maintain surface, in the specific color of your choice.
