Why should you seal your grout? Grout sealing is done to strengthen the grout’s defenses against dirt, stains, and erosion.  Since grout is porous, sealing your grout will add a defensive coating that will help keep it looking great. 

 Did you know that grout needs time to cure? Your tile flooring installer may not seal the grout immediately after it has been installed. Be sure to either make a follow up appointment or if you are a do-it-yourselfer, get instructions from the manufacturer on the best time and manner to seal your grout.

If you are wondering whether or not your grout has been sealed or needs re-sealing, you can sometimes tell by putting a few drops of water on the grout or tile.  If the droplets get darker or change color, the grout probably has not been sealed.  You need to refer to your tile and grout manufacturer’s guidelines in sealing grout or tile
