Frequently Asked Questions
- 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.

Other FAQs :
- Q: How will you charge me for sealing my grout?
- A: 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.
- 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: Are there different types of grout sealer?
- A: 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.
- 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: 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.
