How Should I clean color sealed grout?          BACK TO TOP A  Even color sealed grout needs to be cleaned periodically to prevent soil build-up. To minimize build-up, sweep, dust-mop or vacuum surfaces regularly to remove loose soil and dust. Damp mop your floor regularly with a neutral no-rinse floor cleaner. Don’t use plain water, it only removes water soluble dirt and may leave streaks. Neutral floor cleaners contain no acids, have a neutral pH, and will not affect existing sealers. If build-up does occur, apply a neutral floor cleaner to the area to be cleaned and let the cleaner dwell a couple minutes. Lightly scrub the grout lines with a soft nylon grout brush to loosen build-up, rinse with clean water and dry grout joints. Change your cleaning water often, most soil build-up is caused by mopping with dirty water. Avoid ordinary household cleaners such as: bleach, ammonia, vinegar, Pine-Sol ®, Murphy ® Oil Soap, Fabuloso ®, ect. Many cleaners commonly found in the home will damage grout color sealers. Do not use steam cleaning or high pressure to clean your color sealed floors. Can I change the color of my grout?          BACK TO TOP Yes. Our color sealing process can change sanded grout from light to dark or dark to light with many different colors to choose from. Save thousands by updating an old tile area instead of replacing it. Q  Does grout have to be cleaned before color sealing?          BACK TO TOP A  New grout is ready for protection in 7 - 10 days after installation and does not need to be cleaned first. On older tile areas, the grout joints must be clean and free of dust, dirt, grease, oil, sealers, or coatings of any kind. Should I seal my grout?          BACK TO TOP    A  Yes, grout is a porous material it will begin to absorb dirt and stains immediately if it is not sealed. Grout sealers are products, when applied properly to dried grout reduce its ability to absorb liquid. They work by filling the pores in the grout to produce a water resistant seal. grout color seal  creates a long-lasting, durable layer of protection and prevents dirt and spills from absorbing into your grout. It’s the closest thing to stain proof grout available. Do you offer a warranty on color seal?          BACK TO TOP A  Yes, all color sealer applied to floor grout has a 3 year warranty against defects in materials and craftsmanship. How long will the color sealer you apply last?          BACK TO TOP A  If maintained correctly, the color seal can last up to 15 years if maintained correctly. High grout lines and areas where high foot traffic patterns may require periodic touch up to maintain uniform color and protection. High-traffic areas include the entryway to the garage, kitchen floors, and entryway to backyard, front door entryway, around toilets, kitchen counters, bathroom counters, shower floors and walls. Can the grout in my shower be color sealed?           BACK TO TOP    Yes, but showers and bath areas are subject to harsher chemicals for cleaning so in those areas the color sealer may need to be touched-up periodically. What types of grout can be color sealed?          BACK TO TOP The stain/sealers we use are designed to be used on sanded grout. Q  I’ve just had a new ceramic tile floor installed, can the new grout be color sealed?         BACK TO TOP         Yes, It is a great way to keep your grout and floor looking clean. With proper care and maintenance the grout will look great for years. How long will project take?          BACK TO TOP     A  The majority of our restorations are completed in one or two days. Q  Another company color sealed my floor two years ago and it’s flaking off, why?          BACK TO TOP    A  If the grout was not properly cleaned and dried the color sealer will not adhere properly. This is one of the most important steps. In most cases, a six step cleaning process, (including pressurized clean water rinse & extraction) is necessary to prepare the grout prior to sealing. Color seal applied to grout that has been properly cleaned and maintained will last for years. Q  If my grout was previously sealed with a penetrating grout sealer can the grout  be color sealed?          BACK TO TOP A  Yes, grout joints must be clean and free of dust, dirt, grease, oil, sealers, or coatings of any kind. We determine the type of sealer used to seal the grout and remove it prior to applying the color sealer.  Q  Last year I had my grout color sealed by another company, now the color is fading and the grout is staining. I thought a color sealer was supposed to last for years?           BACK TO TOP A  If the grout was not properly cleaned and dried, the color sealer will not adhere properly. This is one of the most important steps. In most cases, a six step cleaning process, (including pressurized clean water rinse & extraction) is necessary to prepare the grout prior to sealing. Color sealer applied to grout that has been properly cleaned and maintained will last for years. There are also many different products on the market. A colored stain is sometimes added to a penetrating sealer (a method often used by carpet cleaners) to seal grout and add color. These are not to be confused with color sealing. In fact, a penetrating sealer with pigment added can discolor grout, making it look even worse. Colored stains are available in limited colors, whereas color sealers are available in any color.

How is grout color sealing different from regular grout sealer’s ... Most sealer’s on the market today, even expensive ones, are transparent (penetrating sealers) and provide only stain resistance, which means you have a little more time to pick up a spill before it permanently stains the grout.
