Sealing tile floor

Posted by frydmice (My Page) on

I just had tile floors installed in my bath and kitchen. One of the contractors said that they don't need sealing because the grout had seal in it. I never heard of this so would appreciate any insight.

RE: Sealing tile floor

We'd need to know who the grout manufacturer is and what product he used. There are "sealed" grouts and additives out there but I prefer to manually seal the grout with what I know is a quality product.

With any sealer, bear in mind that it doesn't make it waterproof or only makes it easier to clean and stains don't "set" readily.
