Frequently Asked Questions
- 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.

Other FAQs :
- 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: 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: 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: 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.
