What is grout colour seal?
Firstly, keeping tiled floors clean can be a difficult task for the average homeowner because the grout is porous. As a result, grout is susceptible to moisture and the buildup of dirt over time. Grout lines become dark or discoloured which drastically changes the look of a floor. However, grout colour seal gives floors a uniform coloured grout and maximum stain protection. This appearance provides a WOW factor which makes most homeowners feel like they have a completely new tiled floor.
What makes grout colour seal different?
In short, clear sealers penetrate the grout and fill the open pores, giving us more time to clean up spills and prevent stains. In addition, penetrating sealers need to be periodically reapplied to maintain maximum protection. On the other hand, grout colour seal makes grout completely waterproof by adding a urethane barrier on top of the grout which repels water and oil. Keeping water and dirt out of the grout improves floor maintenance and minimises dirt build-up. As a result, floors look new and clean for much longer!
The benefits of colour sealing the grout
Certainly, grout can turn ugly and blotchy when cleaned with harsh cleaners. Likewise, grout can become permanently stained and no amount of Tile and Grout Cleaning will fix it. Therefore, other than replacing the grout, applying colour seal is the only way to make it look like new again.
Tiled areas with small tiles and dark grout lines can make some rooms appear small. Colour sealing with a neutral colour can make tiles appear larger and eliminate the picture framing effect.
