Answer: Realizing that all grout is extremely porous, absorbs all types of liquid spills from food and beverages, dirty cleaning solutions, animal (pet) accidents; it is essential that all grout be sealed, on floors, walls, and countertops. Your floors, walls, or countertops might only be a month or a few years old; but, if the grout is not sealed and looks dirty and discolored, you’re left with the impression, that the entire area is aged and potentially unclean.

Whether it’s new construction or grout that has just been restored to a new clean appearance, it only makes sense to protect your investment and make future maintenance/cleaning of the grouted areas quick and easy, by spending a few minutes to seal the grout, which is also quick and easy to do.

The first step prior to sealing your grout, is to watch our Instructional How To Do It DVD.

Additional Grout Guard Protector and Grout Guard Restorer can also be purchased on our Website, in the Grout Sealer and Grout Cleaner/Restorer categories, respectively.

Pour our Grout Guard Protector into a plastic container, our long handled angled (sash) paint brush is a great applicator; apply liberally to approximately four feet of grout (do not skimp) applying an insufficient amount of sealer, defeats the intended purpose of this project. By dipping the applicator into the container of sealer for every foot or two of grout, should insure proper penetration. After applying the grout sealer to approximately eight feet of grout, center a moist with water grout sponge (be sure to wring out all excess water, the sponge should only be damp to the touch, not wet with water) over the grout line, and make one up and down pass over the grout line so that any grout sealer which may have gotten on the edge of the tile, will transfer onto the sponge; but, no grout sealer will be removed from the grout joint, because the grout joints’ elevation is lower than the tiles’ surface. Continue with the aforementioned grout sealing process until the entire area to be sealed is completed.
