If you want your grout to stay clean and last for a long time, the best way you can do this is to have your grout sealed. If you have never sealed your grout before, then it is a good idea to learn how to do it. The first step in learning how to seal grout, is to make sure that your grout lines are very clean. Make sure to use a tile grout cleaner or a steam cleaner. If you have recently installed your grout, you will still want to go over the grout lines with a coarse brush, or sponge. Try and make the lines as smooth as possible because this will make it easier for you to use your grout sealer.
After you have wiped all of the grout lines out, wait for them to dry. Once they are dry, you’ll be ready to use a grout sealer to seal them. I recommend that you use a bottle roller to seal your grout, because it’ll be the easiest way for you to do it. You can also try using a bottle brush. Either way, you want to fill the bottle with the grout sealer, and then apply it from the bottle to your grout. Even though there are a lot of different types of grout sealers that you can use, most tile cleaning experts suggest that the easiest type of grout sealer you can use as a water-based grout sealer. If you use a grout sealer that is solvent -based, you’re going to end up spending a lot of time trying to get it to absorb into the grout. Installing a water-based grout sealer is simple, just roll it on and wait for it to dry. It doesn’t get much easier, and on top of that, water-based grout sealers are also inexpensive. Make sure that you get a good brand like Aqua Mix. You can get pretty good deals online. Don’t buy the cheapest grout sealer that they have for sell at Home Depot, because more than likely you won’t be very satisfied with the results.
Make sure that you evenly cover all of your grout lines. In addition, you want to make sure that you apply a liberal amount of grout sealer to all of your grout lines. Make sure that the surface of the grout stays wet for at least 10 to 12 minutes while you are applying the sealant. Grout sealers are fairly easy to use and apply. Some people think that it takes a long time, but if you compare it to the amount of time that you would otherwise have to spend cleaning your grout and tile, it is not really that long at all. If you do a good job sealing your grout, you won’t have to clean your grout lines for another 6 to 8 months!
