Tile and stone surfaces are durable, easy to clean, and they look great! But, it’s important to properly maintain these surfaces to help them last longer and to keep your family and your home healthy.


Why Use a Sealant 

Tile, stone, and especially grout are porous surfaces. This means bacteria, mold, fungus, and other dirt can easily build up in the holes. That’s why applying a tile sealant to protect the surface is essential. Sealing the porous surfaces will not only help them to look better for longer, it will also prevent harmful contaminants from building up and endangering you and your family.


Extra Protection for Your Home

Bathrooms are one of the most common places for tile surfaces. If your shower or bathtub are made of tile and grout, keeping them protected should be a priority. Moisture in your bathroom creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew, making these areas ‘hotspots’ that require extra care and attention.

Sealing these surfaces regularly helps to maintain the appearance and quality of these ‘hotspot’ surfaces so your home can be as healthy as possible. Plus, it helps to prevent permanent stains that can show up when dirty grout is sealed. 

We recommend sealing your tile and grout surfaces once a year for high traffic homes and anytime it’s been deep cleaned, reseal it immediately. For low-traffic areas of your home, sealing tile, stone, and grout every 4-5 years is sufficient.
