Tile: Sealed vs Non-sealed?

Posted by laethe5650 (My Page) on

We are in the process of changing from carpet to creamic tile through the whole house and I need help with 2 things:
1) are there any advantages in sealing the grout?
2) which hard floor cleaning machine in the $100-200 price range does a good job of first vacuuming ( have a dog) and then wet/dry cleaning the floor.
I'd appreciate any help as I need to decide b4 the furniture is put back in!

RE: Tile: Sealed vs Non-sealed?

1 - Yes ... it's easier to clean later. Doesn't get soaked-in liquid stains.

2 - NONE. Vacuum with your regular vacuum, then use the scrubbing machine. I have a Hoover floor mate and it's excellent at scrubbing.
