Cleaning and Sealing of Tiles

Sealing is done to strengthen tile or grout's defenses against dirt, spills, and erosion of grout, but not all tiles need to be sealed.

If your tile is ceramic or porcelain, it probably won't need to be sealed. There are some exceptions to this, so check with your manufacturer to be sure.tile_sealing1 If your tile is stone (slate, marble, granite, sandstone, travertine, etc.) or terracotta, then it will need to be sealed. Stone is naturally porous and will absorb spills and stain fairly easily.

One of the most common questions regarding the sealing of tile, grout and natural stone is, "Do we need to seal?". The answer is that all stone and tile products, even porcelain tile, benefits from sealing. There is a broad range of elements that can penetrate or hold to the surface, including grout, dyes, polyester resins, epoxy resins, oil, water, coffee, wine etc.

Many products on the market have been designed to beautify and "protect" the surfaces of stone, tile and grout, including sealers, finishes, colour enhancers and waxes. As the name implies, sealers actually seal the surface tight against chemicals, water and other contaminants.
