  • Why It’s Important to Seal Your Grout

    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.

  • How to Use Our Grout Sealer

    Restoring grout isn’t just about cleaning it to get that “like new” look, it’s about preventative care, as well. If you know certain areas of grout in the home are in highly trafficked areas or are easily exposed to spills, muck, and other filth, it’s best not only to clean these areas, but seal them as well. Sealing the grout will keep it protected. With a sealer, future maintenance of the grout will be cut down significantly.

     

    At Grout Shield, our quality sealers can be used to seal new tile and grout installations, as well as natural stones and outside concrete. Grout Shield sealers make the grout become impenetrable, which means liquids and stains won’t be able to seep into the grout. The sealers help maintain the grout’s original color, so light and age will have little effect on the grout’s appearance. The sealer also allows for you to easily wipe off dirt, liquids, and other debris that lands on the grout.

     

    Here are the types of sealer we offer, and how to use them:

     

    Grout Shield Clear Sealer – This clear-colored sealer protects newly laid tile and grout from becoming stained, dirty, and discolored.

     

    Grout Shield Color Sealer – This penetrating sealer revitalizes and restores color to the grout. This sealer is a colorant and sealer in one product.

     

    Grout Shield Enhancer Seal –  Our enhancer seal is used on existing ceramic, slate, or Mexican tile floor to make the tiles look vibrant and new again.

     

    To use: Grout Shield sealers are very easy to apply and use with not special techniques required. Apply an even coat of the sealer across the grout lines (or tiles for the enhancer sealer); then, wipe off any excess or pooling; let the area dry thoroughly.

     

    Purchasing a Sealer
    Sealers truly “seal the deal” with grout restoration. With just one coat, a person can save so much money and time down the road with maintaining a great looking tiled surface. The end result of applying a sealer is a well-protected, better-looking floor, wall, pool area, etc.  To purchase or learn more about the different types of sealers, click here or call 1-800-631-0716.
