When cleaning and maintaining your home, one of the areas most often overlooked is the flooring. Your tiled floors require some attention to keep them well maintained and preserved. The key to tiled flooring is the grout. Grout joins the seams between the tiles and gives your flooring a cohesive appearance. Most flooring contains one of two kinds of grout, cement-based or epoxy based grout. Even with regular cleaning, grout can become dirty and discolored if not professionally maintained. The experts at Tough Carpet Cleaning provide professional grout sealing services to preserve your grout and restore the appearance of your tiles.
Importance of Properly Sealed Grout
In most instances, flooring tiles are joined with cement-based grout. Unsealed grout is porous, allowing moisture to penetrate the grout. Unfortunately, when the moisture evaporates, it can leave behind dirt and stains that can be hard to remove. Moisture between the tiles is also the perfect environment for mold and mildew, which can cause serious health problems for susceptible family members who suffer with respiratory issues, including asthma. As your floor ages, the grout will wear down, which can cause the tiles to become loose. Loose tiles create trip hazards making the area dangerous when walked upon. Professional grout sealing will prevent these problems from occurring.
Is Professional Grout Sealing Worth It?
Professional grout sealing provides a protective layer that will prevent moisture from being absorbed into the grout. This protective layer will also prevent the grout from wearing down and cracking. Your grout lines will resist staining and discoloration and, more importantly, stop the build-up of mold and mildew and prevent germs.
Additional advantages of grout sealing include helping to retain the original color of colored grout while preventing discoloration and staining. It gives grout a waterproof layer to avoid absorption of moisture and liquids from accidental spills. It also prevents grout from becoming dry and cracked to help preserve the resilience and beauty of your tiled surfaces.
Tiles that have been professionally sealed are much easier to clean and keep maintained. Sealed grout resists spills, dirt, and even dust. The grout sealer will also stop cleaning products from becoming trapped in the grout which can cause your tile to wear down over time prematurely.
Grout Cleaning Before Sealing
Your tiles will need to be professionally cleaned to remove any visible signs of dirt, grease, mold, and mildew before the sealant can be applied. The experts at Tough Carpet Cleaning recommend their professional grout sealing services every 12 months to keep your tiles in pristine condition. Professional grout sealing will not only protect your flooring it can also help preserve your health and the health of your family. When combined with regular tile cleaning services, your flooring will remain free of stains and retain the tile’s natural beauty and resilience for years to come.
