Sealing Tile and Grout

Tile and Grout Sealing is an extremely important step of the tiling process. 

A sealer is a liquid coating that is applied to the porous surface of the tile and grout. It has a crucial job, which is to protect the tile and grout from absorbing stains, oxidation, and regular wear and tear.

Failure to seal your tile and grout may have disastrous repercussions. If grout is not sealed properly, it most likely will provide a pathway for water to reach the underside of the tile and create the perfect environment for mould, mildew, and bacteria to grow. Sealing tile helps to strengthen the tile’s resistance to dirt and spills. If you were to accidentally spill things on your brand new unsealed tiles (such as coffee, wine or tomato sauce), your tiles will eventually begin to change colour. So if you have a messy family, your beautiful white tiles might gradually change to a light brown or red colour. We are sure this is not something you want as part of your home aesthetic. This will require tough cleaning and Tile Solution is here to provide exactly this.

Benefits of sealing tile and grout in your home: 

» Prolong the look and texture of the tile and grout.

» Help keep out mould and mildew.

» Prevent tile staining.

» Decrease the amount of time and effort that you will need to put into tile cleaning.

» Protect the tile from water damage.

» Help the tile and grout to last longer.

Types of Sealers:

Penetrating Sealers

These sealers are absorbed into the stone, tile or grout and form a stain-resistant coating just below the surface of the material. Most of these sealers do not change the appearance of your tiles. Penetrating sealers can either be water-based or solvent-based, and our expert team will decide which is best for your tiles based on the method of application we will use.

Surface Sealers

Surface sealers offer protection by forming a film on the surface of the tile. They are generally used for matte and porous surfaces. These sealers may alter the appearance of the tile and can provide protection against slips.

However, not all tile types require sealing. Stone tiling always needs to be sealed as they are extremely porous, but ceramic and porcelain tiling only require sealing if they are a porous variant.
