For homeowners, one of the most popular flooring options for bathrooms and kitchens is tile flooring. However, many of them do not realize how important it is to make sure the grout between the tiles is sealed. It does not matter whether you have ceramic or stone tile flooring, ensuring the grout is sealed is an easy and essential form of tile maintenance that will keep your floors performing and looking their best for many years.
Many people believe that the grout lines between the tiles are nothing more than decorative accents. However, grout is essential during the assembly of tile flooring. It helps keep the tile matrix together with filler that is inflexible and hard. Grout is not only important to tile floors, but it is also critical that the grout is always sealed.
Extend The Life Of Your Floors
Beautiful tile floors are expensive. Just as you protect other investments like the HVAC system in your home and your vehicle, you should also take the same interest in being proactive with your tile floors so that you can prolong its life and clean look.
When you seal the grout, it extends the longevity of the tile. It will also keep them, look showroom new. The last thing you want is to have your beautiful and expensive tile floors ruined with stains and scratches.
Unsightly grout can be very difficult to clean. It will also fail and wear down a lot quicker than sealed grout.
Grout Is Made From Porous Materials
Cement is the material used to make the type of grout used for tile flooring. Cement is a porous material that can easily absorb liquids.
This means that grout is susceptible to stains, mold, and bacteria. The grout can be ruined even when the tile is impenetrable.
Colored liquids can quickly stain unsealed grout even if you wipe the spill up immediately. Oil and pet accidents can also penetrate the grout and cause stains. In fact, you may be left with odors emitting from the floor that you are unable to get rid of without replacing all of the stained grout. In simpler terms, unsealed grout is nothing more than a sponge that is ready to absorb any liquids that fall on the floor.
Mold will not grow on the tile, but the same cannot be said for the grout. As previously explained, grout is porous so it can become a prime breeding ground for mold once it becomes wet.
When the grout is exposed to moisture, it absorbs the water. Over time, this can cause the grout to become pitted. This is not apparent to an untrained eye, but flooring professionals will be able to notice it immediately. This is why you should seal your grout.

If there is moisture, mold spores can also sprout and flourish in the grout. Once this occurs, it will be nearly impossible to get rid of the mold without tearing out the grout. However, sealing the grout is an effective and preventative measure to keep mold from making a home on your flooring.
