If you have remodeled your home floor, then you know how newly tiled floor appears. It’s gorgeous, beautiful and breathtaking. Every home owner strives their best in order to ensure that their tiled floor stays beautiful and perfect always.
Grout is usually applied during the last step of tile installation and it helps to hold all tiles together. While tiles are made from hard and impervious ceramic material, grout is not therefore it’s not resilient. To protect it, one needs to apply a sealer.
Why sealing your grout important?
Tile floors face different things from foot traffic to liquid spills to dirt and pet urine too. Liquids such as coffee, soft drinks and pet urine usually find their way in the tile grout therefore if left for some time, it leads to staining. This occurs in cases where soft drinks which are sugary create a stick floor and every time someone walks by with dirt on their shoe, particles get to stick on the grout.
Continued deposit of liquids and other substance will lead to staining if your grout is not sealed. When you seal your grout, you don’t have to bleach it in order to eliminate any stains, tile and grout cleaning becomes easy.
