Sealing for Success: The Key to Great Grout

Few homeowners realize just how important it is to give proper care and maintenance to the grout on the tile of their home. Whether it’s in the kitchen, the bathroom or any other room in which tile might be used, proper grouting will make all the difference between tile that looks sharp and clean and tile that looks dull and in disrepair. This is especially true to custom tile, which needs proper care in order to show it’s true beauty.

Grout can fade or develop ugly discolorations over time, especially as it comes in contact with water and other contaminating particles. It can also be subject to mold or mildew over time if not properly treated and maintained. Sealing your grout the it is first installed and then again every six to twelve months will go a long way in keeping it fresh and new and will also help to protect it from damage.
