Have you ever considered applying a coloured grout sealer after cleaning your floor tiles and grout? Read on and discover some of the benefits which you can enjoy when you use coloured grout sealers.
Creating Grout Uniformity
Some grout can deteriorate so much that you may be compelled to replace it. The new grout is unlikely to look identical to the remaining old grout due to the effects of aging on the old grout. The grout on your floors can therefore look dissimilar even to a casual observer. You can restore uniformity to the appearance of the new and the old grout by using a coloured sealing product after cleaning the grout thoroughly.
Reducing Microbial Activity
Coloured grout sealants usually contain ingredients which kill mildew. Those ingredients remain active for as long as the sealant hasn't been removed from the grout. This can protect you and your family from the health hazards to which you would have been exposed if mould and mildew had an opportunity to grow within the porous grout.
As already mentioned, grout tends to be more porous than many kinds of tiles. Homeowners therefore have to do more to keep the grout clean and attractive-looking. Applying a coloured sealant can reduce the cost of grout maintenance. This is because the sealant will prevent stains from penetrating the grout. You will therefore use less effort to clean the grout. Cleaning intervals will also be longer.
The use of coloured grout sealers can also help to prevent odours from emanating from your floors. Unsealed grout absorbs all sorts of substances, such as moisture and food spills. These substances can eventually cause hard-to-trace odours to start affecting the air within your home. Coloured sealants prevent these odour-causing substances from getting into the pores in the grout.
Coloured grout sealants also offer you an opportunity to spice up the appearance of your home. This is because you can select a colour which can make a design statement so that the floor can match the rest of the rooms during renovations or remodels. One added advantage of such a design feature is that you can change it as often as you want.
