Frequently Asked Questions
- A: 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.

Other FAQs :
- Q: Do I still need to clean my grout after it is sealed?
- A: 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.
- Q: What should I do to prepare for grout sealing?
- A: Move all items from the area being sealed so it is ready for when we arrive.
- Q: How long does the sealer last?
- A: 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.
- Q: What is grout?
- A: 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.
- Q: How do I measure the size of the grout area to be sealed?
- A: 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.
