Are you wondering what grout color sealing is and how it’s different from traditional grout sealing?
Clear grout sealant, which is commonly applied once your tile and grout have been put down, will adhere directly to your grout, seep into your grout, and then harden. This will then act as a barrier to prevent discoloring agents like dirt, dust, grime, and even some minor spills from seeping into your grout. If your grout is not properly sealed or isn’t sealed at all, then your grout will very quickly become discolored. This is especially the case with shower and bathtub grout (if applicable). The reason for this is that grout is, by its very nature, extremely porous. This allows for the quick accumulation of different discoloring agents if your grout isn’t sealed. Grout color sealant is nearly the same as traditional grout sealer, except that it comes in different color options. While it may not seem immediately apparent, grout color sealant will protect your grout but will also drastically change or alter the appearance of your entire tiled surface. Before trying grout color sealing yourself, we recommend consulting with a professional tile and grout expert to learn more about your different color options and how the color seal should be applied.

How often should I have my grout sealed for maximum effectiveness?
Your grout’s appearance plays a major, major role in the appearance of your tiled surfaces. If your tiled surfaces look unsightly, it might simply be that your grout is dirty. While your traditional cleaning of grout may improve the appearance in the short term, it won’t last long. We recommend that you have your grout re-sealed once every two years on average. This is especially the case with high-traffic areas, such as bathrooms and primary walkways. While grout sealants are often rated for 10+ years, they don’t always last that long. It’s better to be proactive in your grout’s maintenance than reactive. The last thing you want is to have new grout put down and forget to properly seal it or never have it cleaned.
