While most people don’t tend to give it much thought, one of the most important aspects of tile floors is the grout between tiles. Grout is a porous material that absorbs spills and dirt much more easily than hard tile, and therefore requires much more regular maintenance to keep it looking its best. However, with the use of grout sealants, most of the damage that grout absorbs can be prevented.
If you have tile floors in your home, grout sealant may be able to reduce the amount of maintenance your floors require.

The Benefits of Grout Sealant
Once it is applied, grout sealant acts as a barrier between grout and debris. This has a variety of benefits, including:
- Preventing stains from setting in
- Stopping grout erosion caused by moisture
- Preventing mold growth on grout
- Preventing mold and mildew from growing under tile
After grout sealant is applied, it takes about 24 hours to fully dry, during which time spills should be avoided. When the sealant hardens, cleaning should be performed using pH-neutral cleaning solutions.
Keeping your grout clean can help to preserve the appearance of tile floors. If you would like to know more about how grout sealants can benefit you, contact the Austin tile and grout cleaning specialists of WOW Total Cleaning today at 512-291-0048.
