Experts recommend thoroughly sealing your grout after any new tile work is done, but even those who have sealed it back when their floor, shower surround, or backsplash is newly completed should break out the sealer regularly to keep that nice protective coating on your grout.
You don’t absolutely have to, but it really cuts down on maintenance and keeps it looking mint for years to come.
Tile Cleaning Birmingham AL – To Seal or Not to Seal
What does sealed grout have over non sealed grout?
Well, by not allowing moisture or dirt to penetrate the grout, it relegates these things to the surface, thereby protecting the look of your lines. In other words: white grout stays nice and clean and white. And any other colored grout looks as good as new.
And one tip that we heard from several tiling experts was that not only should we thoroughly seal our bathroom’s floor and wall grout two months back when we completed our big bathroom overhaul but that we should go back in and reseal everything about six months afterwards- just to be sure we didn’t miss a thing and that we have a nice thick seal on everything (which can literally be the difference when it comes to having to scrub dirty grout lines to rid them of mold and mildew).
