Get the last laugh on dirt and grime…
Once your tile and grout is completely clean, you’ll be so glad you called us. Unfortunately, dirt and grime will settle back into the porous surfaces of your grout within a few regular cleanings. We realize that your time is valuable, and the last thing you’ll want to do is call us back prematurely. That’s why we highly recommend you protect your grout and keep it looking great with our grout sealing or color sealing services. Both sealed and color sealed floors are easier to maintain, but if you want to dramatically change the appearance of your floor, opt for color sealing.
Grout sealing is a clear sealant that doesn’t change the appearance of your grout, but fills in the tiny holes of your porous grout surface, forming an invisible, protective barrier. Spills, dirt, allergens, and other pollutants can’t penetrate the surface and more easily removed with regular cleaning or janitorial services. Grout sealing also ensures that you’ll get the best possible results the next time we provide deep-cleaning services.
Grout color sealing may be a recent innovation, but it is certainly not just a fad. 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.
There are aesthetic reasons for choosing color sealing as well. When you have areas where only some of the grout needs to be replaced, it is virtually impossible to match the color of the new grout to the older grout that is still intact. Even if you use the identical product and color, aging and wear has already altered the look of your previously installed grout and the difference is usually noticeable. Color sealing, however, will provide a consistent look across the board, making all of your grout look new again. And not just new —color sealing can completely change your grout to virtually any color you choose. With color sealing, you can even change from a dark shade to a lighter one. Permanently stained grout can be restored to like new or better with our exclusive color sealing system.
The Advantages of Color Sealing
Grout is porous. That means it’s full of tiny holes and grooves. With everyday use and traffic, food spills, dirt, grime, pet accidents, bacteria, and allergens find their way into these tiny holes. With mopping and scrubbing, some of the contaminants are removed, but what you may not know is that one of the main causes of dirty grout is dirty mop water, which can settle into the pores.
Professional cleaning removes the contaminants that are trapped deep beneath the porous surface, but it’s not as if you are going to hire a professional to come clean your floors every week. So, what’s the solution? You need to fill those pores, so that they’re no longer absorbent. In other words, you need to have the grout sealed.
Sealing your grout is a game changer, because staining agents can’t penetrate the porous surface. What’s the difference between clear and color sealers?
We’re glad you asked.
Clear grout sealer does a great job of filling in the holes and grooves, making regular cleaning easier. Color sealing does this and so much more.
Unless your grout is brand new, even after professional cleaning, it may have discolorations, such as bleached spots from cleaners or permanent stains from spills. Color sealing resolves this and other problems. Color sealing gives your floor a fresh, new, uniform look. Not only does it resolve the blotchy appearance of grout lines, but you can change the color of your grout to virtually any color you choose, even going from dark to light or vice versa.
Your floor will look great… it will STAY looking great.
Regular cleaning will be so much easier, because contaminants stay on the surface and are easily removed with a quick sweep and damp mop.
We use only good, quality color sealers that will last years and years, so your floors remain cleaner, healthier, and more sanitary.
