Tile & Grout Cleaning and Color Sealing
Quality color sealers repel oil and water-based liquids, which will prevent food and beverage stains. In addition, they contain constant acting mildewcides and other agents that inhibit the growth of bacteria and mildew. This not only offers health benefits by making your floors more sanitary, but can reduce or eliminate the funky smells you often find with older floors that have had a long time to absorb a variety of odiferous liquids. Color sealed floors are consequently easier to maintain.
The Color Seal Process
Color sealer can be applied to the grout lines of interior and exterior ceramic and porcelain tile installations. The grout lines of natural stone tiles can be color sealed as well, provided that the stone itself has already been protectively sealed.
The 4 basic steps of color sealing job are as follows:
1. The floor is professionally cleaned, neutralized, and allowed to dry completely.
2. The color sealer is professionally applied and allowed to penetrate into the grout.
3. Any any excess sealer is removed and the floor’s surface is allowed to dry again.
4. Lastly, the entire floor is cleaned and buffed to remove any residual haze. While the grout is not ready for regular use until at least thirty minutes after application, it can be walked on immediately.
