Tile and Grout Sealing
All natural stone & ceramic tiles are strong and durable, but the grout is not so durable. Hence all tiles should be sealed. sealing your tiles helps prevent & reduce staining & water leakages specially in areas that are exposed to water and dirt such as bathrooms and kitches. It provides a barrier for a period to prevent the tiles from staining, and helps reduce the damage caused from the stain itself. If your tiles are not porous then you should only seal the grout lines with a special impregnating penetrating sealer.
Benefits of Tile Sealing
Even though tiles & stone surfaces are visibly water resistant, it is actually not. All floor surfaces including ceramic tiles, terracotta, slate, natural stone & even concrete is porous in nature, and so water and other dirt could leak into the tile in the long run and specially in areas where the surface faces a lot of heavy work. But the biggest porous surface is the tile grout that leaks water to the underside of the tile rather easily and hence damaging the tile from the inside and creating a ripe environment for mildew, bacteria, fungus and other harmful microbes to grow freely.
The main benefits of Sealing are
- Giving your floor surface a better look
- Helps removing dirt & grime
- Better Hygiene
- Stain prevention
- Tile damage control
- Moderate cost
- Deep cleans dirt and grime that regular cleaning cannot
- Leaves floors looking bright and refreshed
