Grout Sealing

Ever asked yourself the question “why does grout need to be sealed?” or “why should grout lines be sealed”?

Well, think about grout as a gap filler between tiles.

This filler or “grout” consists mainly of fine sand, cement and colour pigments. Unlike your tiles, the grout is porous and allows for water to sink into the grout joint. Dust particles, soap or food residues and other materials can sink deep into the porous grout and start to discolour the cementous filler. As one only cleans the surface of the grout, the grout lines may look patchy – although cleaned.

To protect the grout lines from discolouring over time, it is highly recommended to seal the grout joints with a sealer.
