After the cleaning: Tile and Grout Sealant
Immediately after the professional tile and grout cleaning is the best time to apply a long- lasting, clear tile and grout sealant to your floor. A finishing coat of clear tile sealant protects your grout and creates a stain-resistant surface for your tile and grout. Grout is a porous material that absorbs soils and spills. Applying a tile and grout sealant creates a barrier that protects the tile and porous grout, providing you with more time to clean up both dry soils and liquids before they soak in.
Clear tile and grout sealant normally dries to the touch in 30 minutes and takes 24 hours to completely cure. Correctly applied grout sealant will last up to 3-5 years. It penetrates your porous grout to protect it against regular spills and permanent stains. Your professionally cleaned tile and grout will look brand new again and stay looking that way longer with tile and grout sealant.

When your tile’s grout is permanently stained your regular cleanings and our professional cleanings will not remove the stains. When your grout is permanently stained the best tile cleaning methods won’t remove discoloration. When grout is permanently stained it’s time to consider a color grout sealer. A color grout sealer will return your grout to one unified color and waterproof it for added protection from future spills and stains.
At Castle Carpet Cleaning we offer a wide range of grout seal colors, all with uniform color in a waterproof sealant that penetrates the grout surface to create a protective, waterproof barrier against spills and permanent stains.

Vacuum your tile and grout floors as often as possible to remove abrasive grit and dry soils. Wash (mop) tile and grout floors regularly with a neutral cleaner and plenty of clear rinsing water. Remove rinsing water as soon as possible. Your regular mopping and spot cleaning with a neutral cleaning agent and thorough rinsing will get the best results after your tile and grout has been professionally cleaned and sealed. Avoid using bleach or harsh chemical cleaners that can damage the tile and grout sealant, and cause it to break down prematurely. Your regular floor mopping and spot cleaning will be easier and more effective with the tile and grout sealant’s invisible barrier that resists dirt and spills.
