Does Grout Need to Be Sealed?
Before we tell you about why sealing your grout is important, let’s take time to talk about exactly what grout is. Grout is the substance that holds your tile in place. First your tile is laid, and then the spaces between the tiles are filled in with grout. While most tiles come with a sealant layer to protect it from getting stained, grout does not come with one. Grout is porous. The holes in the grout that make it porous are the perfect place for debris to accumulate and for staining to occur. Sealing your grout is a way to protect your grout and keep it clean.
Benefits of Using Grout Sealer
There are many advantages to having your grout sealed. The first one can be a homeowners dream come true! The amount of time it will take to clean your tile and grout reduces by up to 50% if your tiles has a protective sealant layer on it and your grout has been sealed. When the surface is sealed you can avoid heavy scrubbing because you can easily wipe away dirt and debris that fall on your tile and grout. Another perk of having your grout sealed is that it will prevent debris from being absorbed. The sealing material makes it so that the dirt and grime cannot penetrate the surface of the grout. In addition to keeping debris out, it can also keep mold from growing in your home. Mold likes to grow in moist areas. Having your grout sealed will help prevent mold from being able to grow in your home. One of the other advantages for sealing your grout is that it keeps your home looking beautiful. You made a large investment when you purchased your home, so keeping it looking nice is probably a priority. If your grout is sealed it will be able to resist becoming stained or discolored.
