Testimonials

My mother's tiles were old and ugly, as she has been living in the same house her entire life without ever really taking care of her tiles. I called Tile Cleaners to get advice on what to do with them. They came to her house the next day to have a look at my mum's tiles. I am very satisfied with how patient and highly professional you were with my mother. I am sorry I couldn't be there when you arrived, and I am really impressed by how you managed to explain everything to my mom and help her out. Thank you for doing a great job.

When I moved into my new house, I was shocked by how dirty and old the tiles in the entire house looked. I wasn't sure if they were supposed to be like that or if they were just really dirty. I decided to call Tile Cleaners and ask them to have a look and tell me what I could do to improve the look of my tiles. Tile Cleaners ® came the same weekend and managed to make my tiles look brand new. They also informed me that the sealer would protect my tiles for years to come. Amazing! Thank you guys! My floor looks gorgeous.

Amanda Burtender, Brighton East, VIC

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.

Are you noticing your grout gradually becoming darker and dirtier and increasingly harder to keep looking crisp and fresh? How can you prevent your grout lines from staining? These are possibly the most frequently asked questions Tile Cleaners® receive on a daily basis. Most people have heard about sealing their tiles to provide protection against stains but are often unaware of the hassle free solution of Grout Sealing.

Sealing provides the highest degree of stain protection and greatly reduces the maintenance required to keep tiled areas looking clean and fresh. Spills are easily wiped away from sealed surfaces keeping grout look clean, fresh and uniform in colour. With regular mopping, your tile will look great for years to come!

Call the specialists at Tile Cleaners® today and organise one of our experienced technicians to clean and seal your grout lines professionally, eliminating the hassle of maintaining crisp looking grout lines.

Why Seal Grout Lines?

Ceramic or porcelain tiles usually aren't a problem to keep clean, they are most often glazed and baked from the tile manufacturer and repel soil and stains extremely well. The problem, as we all know, IS the grout. And unfortunately most grout is not sealed, at all.

As soil soaks into unsealed or poorly sealed porous grout, it builds up and compacts. This impacted soil and grime has nowhere to go but on top of the existing dirt on the grout, causing layer upon layer of soiling inside the grout. When it’s cleaned the traditional way with a mop and bucket, the embedded dirt is not fully removed – because it can’t be fully removed on unsealed or traditionally-sealed grout.

Grout is an extremely porous sand based material that absorbs and holds stains easily. Just as tiles are sealed to protect them grout can also be sealed. Often if you have a ceramic or porcelain tile that doesn't need sealing you can overlook the need to seal the grout. However, for non-porous tiles, the grout tends to act as a magnet to any grime, dirt or mould. Mopping can just end up transferring grime into the porous grout. Sealing grout can also extend the life of your tiles as grout is the entry point for moisture that can lift tiles.

Tile Cleaners® have specialised methods to successfully seal grout lines, either on their own or as part of an entire surface seal. We strongly recommend that any newly laid porous tiles and grout be sealed immediately so the area gains the full benefit of the protection. Tiling is not an inexpensive exercise, so why not protect your investment?

No more slimy unsanitary hard to clean grout lines

Sealing the grout lines will:

  • Reduce staining and grime build up
  • Eliminate bacteria forming
  • Helps prevent and reduce efflorescence build-up
  • Extend the life of your tiles
  • Make maintenance easier
  • Lowers the risk of cracking and flaking grout

How do you Seal Grout Lines?

Tile Cleaners® have specialised methods for sealing grout lines to ensure the best possible quality protection is achieved. If the entire tile is a natural stone or porous porcelain then it is suggested to seal the entire area. It would be pointless to only seal grout lines on a porous tile. The common misconception is that a glazed tile cannot only have the grout lines sealed. This is false. The grout line can be sealed on their own with no residue left on the glazed tile. The sealer will be strategically brushed on and the residue extracted off the tile before drying.

Tile Cleaners® are proud to be accredited applicators of Deepshield™ quality deep penetrating water based sealers which prolongs the life of your grout by taking advantage of recent advancements in nano-technology and fluoro-bond technology. Australian made impregnating Deepshield™ forms a bond with your grout that is stronger than any conventional mechanical or hydrogen bonding film forming sealers.

Frequently Asked Questions


Grout is a construction material used to fill and seal the gaps between tiles or concrete surfaces. It is typically composed of a mixture of cement, water, sand, and sometimes additives for color or improved performance. After tiles are installed, grout is applied to the gaps between them, and any excess grout is wiped away. Over time, the liquid grout hardens and provides stability and a finished look to the tiled surface.

Sealing your grout is highly recommended if you want to maintain the fresh and crisp appearance of your grout lines and preserve their original color. While some manufacturers may argue that it's an unnecessary expense, the benefits become evident when you find yourself scrubbing the grout lines on your hands and knees. Sealing the grout not only makes cleaning easier but also extends the lifespan of the grout, especially in areas prone to moisture and outdoor exposure.

There are different types of grout sealers available, but it is important to choose the right one for your specific needs. Generally, a penetrating sealer is recommended for grout as it can effectively penetrate the porous surface and provide long-lasting protection. Surface sealers or topical sealers are not typically recommended for grout as they may not adhere well and can result in an uneven appearance. However, if you are sealing the entire tiled area, a topical sealer can be used, and it will also provide some protection to the grout. It is important to select the appropriate sealer based on the specific requirements of your grout and tiles.

While sealing your grout will make it easier to maintain, it does not completely prevent dirt and grime from accumulating. Regular cleaning and maintenance are still necessary to keep your grout looking fresh and clean.

The lifespan of a sealer before reapplication is influenced by the type of sealer used. Topical sealers typically provide protection for approximately 3 years before requiring reapplication. In contrast, impregnating sealers are more durable and can last up to 15 years or even a lifetime when applied to vertical surfaces. However, areas with high foot traffic or frequent use may necessitate more frequent inspections and resealing to ensure ongoing protection. Conducting a water absorption test can help assess the porosity of the surface and aid in selecting a sealer with longer-lasting durability. It is advisable to refer to the guidelines provided by the manufacturer and consult professionals to determine the specific reapplication schedule suitable for your tiles and grout.

Yes, it is possible and recommended to seal the grout lines, especially if they are light in color. Sealing the grout lines can help protect them from staining and discoloration, which can save you the expense of having to regrout the tiles in the future.

Sealing is not a waterproofing solution. If you are experiencing waterproofing issues, such as leaks on balconies, simply sealing the grout will not solve the problem. In such cases, a more comprehensive solution like regrouting may be necessary.

If you are seeking a different aesthetic for your floors, you may consider color sealing as an option. Altering the color of the grout can provide a contemporary appearance without the need for extensive tile replacement. Darker grout shades are gaining popularity as they enhance the tile's visual impact and make dirt less noticeable.

Tile Cleaners® use a per square meter pricing system for grout sealing. You can find the price list on the Tile Cleaners® website for your reference. Prior to starting the work, we will measure the area, discuss the specific details of the job, and provide you with a confirmed cost estimate.

It is advisable to measure each grout area individually. The measurement can be done by multiplying the width of the area by its length. For instance, if a room has a length of 3 meters and a width of 2 meters, the total area would be calculated as 3 meters multiplied by 2 meters, resulting in 6 square meters in total.

Please ensure that all items are removed from the area that will be undergoing grout sealing to ensure it is ready for our arrival.
