You’ve got a great idea for your bathroom remodel. You’re going to tile the floor, the shower, maybe even the walls. You’re excited! But you want to ensure you get all of your tiling done right—and that means grouting it perfectly.
So what’s this “grout” I keep hearing about? Well, grout is just another word for the space between tiles. It fills in the gaps between each tile and makes them look more like one seamless surface than several individual ones.
But… do you need to seal the grout? Or is it just something that happens naturally over time? Read on to find out!
Are You Supposed to Seal Grout?
Yes! Sealing grout is important and can make a huge difference in how long your grout lasts. Grout is porous, which absorbs water and dirt from the air. If you don’t seal your grout, that dirt will get trapped in there and start eating away at the surface of your tiles over time.
Sealing your grout also helps prevent stains from embedding into it, so if anything spills on your tile or sinks in over time, it won’t leave a mark on your grout. Also, sealing can help keep out mold and mildew growth by ensuringe that none of those things can get into the grout itself. So basically: sealing helps protect your floors from all kinds of bad stuff that could otherwise ruin their appearance over time!
So when you’re ready to seal your grout, use a product made specifically for that purpose—you’ll find them at most hardware stores. Just follow the instructions carefully and make sure not to leave any residue behind when you’re done!
