FAQ

Q: Should I seal a brand new floor?

A: Yes, grout is a very porous material and the minute you wash your floors for the 1st time you have just changed the grout color and started a breeding ground for mold, mildew and all kinds of nasty bacteria that builds up in the grout.

Q: What is the right color to choose?
A: This is mostly preference, but grout is not necessarily level so at Grout Plus we like to blend it into the tile making it less obvious.

Q: How Important is a properly prepared floor before sealing?
A: This is VERY important. If the grout is not brought to a porous state before sealing, the sealer will not penetrate the grout which can lead to the sealer peeling in the future.

Q: How do you maintain the floor once it has been sealed?
A: The floor should be properly maintained with an optically enhanced neutral based PH (6-7) Maintenance Cleaner.

Q: Can unsealed grout cause health problems or allergies?
A: The answer to this question seems obvious however we are not sure. We would rather not test the question. You decide.

Q: How much does it cost to clean and permanently color seal my grout?
A: Grout Plus charges by the square foot and the size of your tile and a brand new floor is always less expensive especially if there is no furniture for us to move. If you come to us with this information, we can give you a quote via email or by phone.
