The Importance of Sealing Your Grout!

February 26th, 2011

Are you planning on installing new tile this year?

If so do not forget to seal the grout. Some tile installers will do it at an additional charge.

Carpet Doctor inc. does more than carpet cleaning in Tampa, we can seal your grout as well.

Why is it important to seal your grout?

Grout sealer creates a barrier that prevents soil from penetrating into the porous material known as grout. This makes cleaning the grout much easier and will reduce the cleaning bill of your professional carpet and tile cleaner by making the job a piece of cake.

Can grout sealing be done by the “do it yourself person”?

Yes, grout sealer can be purchased at any home improvement store.

How hard is it to seal grout?

Not hard at all,  just very time consuming. Having your Tampa carpet cleaning company do it for you will save you a lot of time and frustration.

Having grout that is unsealed can be a costly mistake, unsealed grout can become soiled beyond cleaning and require more drastic measures like grout dyeing or even grout shaving.

Carpet Doctor Inc. recommends that you have your professional carpet cleaning company in Tampa seal your grout for you after every grout  cleaning.

So if you live in Brandon, Riverview, Tampa or any surrounding area in Florida give the carpet cleaning experts a call.
