Four Points That You Must Know Concerning How To Seal Grout

carpetPrior to starting to seal your grout, there are a few things that you should know that will help you do a better job and find yourself getting a higher quality finished product.

The very first point that you should know is to always make sure that your grout is dry before you apply a grout sealer. If you are applying grout sealer outside and it has rained not too long ago, you want to ensure that the grout is thoroughly dry before you apply it. Also, you would like to make sure that the grout is clean. You might like to clean the grout thoroughly today and then wait three or four days to apply the grout sealer. Wait until it’s totally dry that it will be able to absorb a lot more of the grout sealant, and that it will help to keep moisture out as soon as it is sealed.

 

The second point that you should be aware of how to seal grout, is that you typically want to use more than one coat of grout sealer. Though it may be time-consuming to apply a second and sometimes even a third coat, it is definitely a great idea. The main reason is because it provides you additional layers of protection against moisture and against staining. Even if you really need to spend more time applying a grout sealer, you will have to spend less time cleaning your grout later on, and so it will undoubtedly be worthwhile for you.

 

The third point you must know regarding sealing grout is that you can do the process much easier if you have the right tools. More often than not, it is recommended that people use a bottle brush grout sealer. Essentially, all you have to do is fill the bottle up with the grout sealer, and then it will slowly drip onto a roller. After this you just have to roll it on the grout lines and as you do, they will be covered with the grout sealing solution. This is an extremely swift and easy way for you to seal your grout. It will lessen the amount of time it takes you by as much as 60%. Although you may have to pay three or four dollars for a bottle roller applicator, it is definitely worthwhile in the amount of time and energy it will save you, every time you will want to seal your grout.

 

Last but not least, you should know is that just because you have sealed your grout once does not mean you’re finished. Commonly people will reapply a grout sealant to their grout every 6 to 12 months. This can help in keeping the grout looking nice and clean, and it also keeps it from breaking down. You will need to spend less time cleaning as well as replacing your grout if you take the time to properly apply a grout sealer regularly.
