If you take a good long look at your tile flooring, you will probably notice how dirty the grout is. Even if the tile itself gets cleaned often and looks good, the grout – as a porous material – doesn’t get clean as easily because it absorbs dirt. As such, the discoloration of grout doesn’t just appear on the surface – it gets deeply embedded into the grout itself.
You may be wondering if you should seal grout after cleaning. Here are some tips.
Seal Your Tile Grout After Cleaning to Prevent Discoloration
Surface discoloration on grout can ruin the look of your entire floor. You should engage in professional grout cleaning every year, depending on how much foot traffic the floor gets. After cleaning, a deep-penetrating grout sealant should be applied to help it repel stains, dirt and liquids. This essentially leaves an invisible shield that protects the grout from water and contaminants.
Seal Your Tile Grout After Cleaning to Make it Easier to Maintain
Unless you enjoy the hassle of cleaning your tile floors frequently, a grout sealer can save you time and energy, while making the floor easier to clean. Any stains you spot on the grout’s surface can easily be mopped or wiped away with a sponge or cloth as well as a pH-balanced cleaning solution. So forget getting down on your hands and knees with an old toothbrush. There’s a better way!
Seal Your Tile Grout After Cleaning to Prevent Damage
Because grout sealing will prevent the penetration of water, dirt, and other contaminants, you can avoid grout erosion over time. Unsealed grout is vulnerable to damage because it’s unprotected, for one – and for another, it’s harder to clean. This may tempt you to put more effort into scrubbing at the grout with harsh cleaning solutions, which will eventually work against you. Your grout will crumble with time and result in a weak floor. Do your part to prevent large-scale damage from impact or water penetration by hiring professional grout cleaning and sealing experts in Michigan.
By hiring a pro to take care of regular tile cleaning and grout sealing, you can avoid premature grout and tile failure in any room of your house, from the kitchen to the hallway to the bathroom.
