Other FAQs :
- 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.
- 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: Does it waterproof the grout?
- A: Sealing is not waterproofing. If you are having waterproofing problems (for example leaking through on balconies etc.) sealing will not six this problem. It is more likely you will need complete regrouting.
- 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 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.
