Testimonials

I have several different freshly laid tiles in my new house. All pathways have stone tiles and there are marble tiles in the bathrooms and porcelain in the kitchen. I needed to get them sealed and was not sure if it was possible to seal them all. I contacted Tile Cleaners because my dad recommended them. He had a similar situation in his house and was very happy with the job Tile Cleaners had done. I was very worried about my tiles since they were brand new and very expensive. Tile Cleaners team were very patient with me, explaining how they were going to apply the sealer on different types of tiles, what sealer they would use, how long it would last for and advised me on how to take care of my tiles. I called Tile Cleaners a few times confirming details, asking for prices, making sure they could to the job during the weekend etc. The guys were amazingly patient and helpful. When I had gathered all the information I wanted, I was ready to go ahead. The work done by Tile Cleaners actually took less time than what it took me looking for information about it. Sorry for the pain I caused, and again thank you.

I was about to sell my business and wanted to clean and reseal my vinyl floors to improve the looks of them before having people over for inspection of the property. I did a booking with another company but was horrified when I realized that my floor was back to its horrible look in less than two weeks. I carefully looked up other cleaning companies, scared that I would chose the wrong cleaning company. A friend of mine recommended Tile Cleaners, but after what happened to my floor last time I got it cleaned I was really skeptic, but gave it a go. All I can say is thank you guys so much for a quick response and a good job. I sold the office and left your contact details with the new owner for future cleaning.

I was about to sell my house, but was not happy with the tiles in the dining area. The tiles were white and shiny but the grout looked really dark and dirty. I already had a potential client; however the dark grout ruined the beauty of the room. I didn't have much time to fix the grout and decided to call Tile Cleaners as my real estate agency mentioned them. As my real estate agent said, Tile cleaners responded really quickly. They also pointed out that some of the grout was coming off in the hallway when they were there, which I had not even noticed. Thank you for fixing my problem so quickly. The house is sold now and I left your details with the new owner so they can keep the tiles in good condition.

Sealing grout is essential due to its porous nature, if not sealed it will act like a sponge to dirt and spills and bring down the look of your tiles and home. Tile Cleaners ® recommend allowing 2-4 hours (depending on the size of the area that is being sealed) to seal your grout lines, 4 hours to touch dry (that is nothing hard to be moved or any liquid spilled on the newly sealed grout lines) and 24 hours to fully cure. Our Impregnating Penetrating Sealer is a long lasting sealer that will help maintain your grout in their best condition for up to 10 years.

What is Grout?

Grout is a cementatious material used between tiles. It is porous and allows moisture and dirt to penetrate it. The build up of the dirt and moisture in the porous grout means in the worst circumstances it can turn black as well as harbour odours related to these areas.

A fresh or clean grout filling between the tiles can help brighten the whole room; however since the smaller tiles with more grout filling is often used in the bathroom and on kitchen walls, they become highly susceptible to moisture which in turn causes the growth of mildew.

If the moisture is not controlled in these areas or preventive measures are not taken against it, the mildew is soon going to spread in the entire area and before you know it your bathroom or any other tiled area is going to look discoloured and dingy.

Why Seal Grout?

The secret to great looking tiles is great looking grout. Grouts are porous and, as a result, they easily absorb grease, dirt and lime scale. Spillages such as wine, lemonades or any greasy substances could cause marks and patches in the joints in the floor. Grout between wall-tiles, particularly in damp areas like bathrooms, could and will become dirty and unattractive as a result of Mould, Mildew and Limescale.

Mould is one of the most unsightly problems, it usually starts off in the wettest area of the room, like the bottom of the shower or bath, and if left unchecked it could spread to cover a large area of the wall.

In bath or shower areas, continued use of acid formulated shampoos and soaps will cause discolouration of grout joints, causing yellow orange and pink stains to appear on the grout over time, so you should protect your grout using a sealer which forms an invisible barrier between the grout and the surface, protecting your investment for years to come.

The answer is obvious, protect the grout using a sealer. Although relatively unknown in Ballarat, protection awareness is growing. Sealing forms an invisible barrier between the grout and the surface, this will then protect your investment for years to come.

After we clean & sanitize the tiles & grout and allow it to dry, we seal the grout with our impregnating grout sealers. The grout absorbs the grout sealer into its pores, creating a barrier against future staining. (Grout Sealing Creates a Sanitary Finish, Easy to Maintain and Stains Simply Wipe Off). Grout Sealing preserves the natural beauty of the grout lines for years to come.

If not sealed, grout can become stained with years of dirt and general cleaning products and can be impossible to clean to a decent standard. This is most common in bathrooms & kitchens.

Frequently Asked Questions


Grout is a construction material used to seal the spaces between tiles or concrete. Grout is typically made from cement, water, sand, and added colour. Grout is added once tiles have been installed, then whatever excess grout there is gets wiped away. Grout is applied in liquid form, and then hardens over time.

If you want your grout lines to remain fresh and crisp and their original colour then yes. Many manufacturers will say it's an unnecessary expense but when you are down on your knees scrubbing the grout lines you will wish you had them sealed. It will also increase the lifetime of the grout, particularly in wet and outdoor areas.

Essentially no. A "grout only" seal should be applied with a penetrating sealer as a topical seal(or surface sealer) will flake and the area will look ununiformed. If you seal the entire tiled area with a topical sealer then that will adhere to the grout better.

Although a sealer will make the grout easier to maintain it doesn't act as force field for dirt and grime. Regular maintenance is necessary to make sure your grout remains fresh.

This depends on the type of sealer you decide to seal your tiles with. Topical sealers usually have a lifetime of around 3 years, while impregnating sealers have a lifetime of up to 15 years. On vertical surfaces impregnating sealers could last a lifetime, however, on heavy walkway areas or heavily used areas such as shower recesses, the areas should be checked more often and re-sealed if necessary.

Yes you can and it is recommended to seal your grout lines especially if they are a light colour, this will save you the likely cost of having to regrout your tiles only a few years after installation.

Sealing is not waterproofing. If you are having waterproofing problems (for example leaking through on balconies etc.) sealing will not six this problem. It is more likely you will need complete regrouting.

If you are looking for a new look for your floors, colour sealing may be an option. Changing the colour of the grout can create a modern look at a fraction of the cost of retiling. Dark grout is becoming more and more popular, allowing the tile to pop and dirt to become less obvious.

Tile Cleaners® charge per square meter for grout sealing. There is a price list on the Tile Cleaners® website for you to review. Before we begin our work we will measure the area individually, confirm the work to be carried out as well as confirm all costs with you.

We recommend that you measure each area separately. The simplest way to measure is by multiplying the width by the length. For example a room that is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide is 3 X 2 = 6m2 in total.

Move all items from the area being sealed so it is ready for when we arrive.
