Other FAQs :
- 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.
- 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: Is it necessary to seal my grout?
- A: 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.
- Q: Can I seal just the grout lines if my tiles cannot be sealed?
- A: 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.
- Q: Can I change the colour of my grout with a seal?
- 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.
