​​Grout Works Color Sealing​​

When tile is installed, rarely is the grout sealed by the installer.  This allows dirty mop water, spills, soil and bacteria to soak into the grout leaving the tile with dirty, discolored grout lines.  Color sealing will make the grout lines uniform, stain free and perfect, but also prevent  future discoloration, stains and bacteria from entering the grout. Grout Works  Color sealing process offers the customer an unlimited option of colors to choose from!   We can restore the original color or custom color match the grout to the tile and decor of the home.  Simply changing the color of the grout can often transform the look of the entire floor.  Once Grout Works proprietary color sealer is applied, NOTHING can penetrate and stain the grout lines again!

Un-Sealed Grout vs Sealed Grout​​

If grout is left un-sealed the porous grout lines will quickly begin to discolor.  This is caused by spills, dirt, bacteria and mop water soaking into the grout lines like a sponge.  Once these stains have penetrated into the grout lines, there is virtually nothing that can remove the stains other than completely removing the grout or color sealing the grout.
Once the grout lines are sealed, all spills, dirt, bacteria and mop water will lay on top of the grout lines allowing for an easy clean up.  Grout Works proprietary grout sealer penetrates into the grout lines and dries as hard as the tile forming a permanent, protective barrier against stains, discoloration and bacteria.  
Color Sealing your grout can completely transform the look of your tile floor as seen in the picture below.


Staining Grout vs Color Sealing Grout​​

A common solution to fix dirty, discolored grout lines is to apply a colored stain.  This process can work for making grout lines look new again but will not prevent bacteria, water and stains from entering the grout lines.  Using a colored based stain will only re-color the grout lines not seal the grout lines.  The other disadvantage to colored stains is they will still discolor and begin to crack, chip or peel often within a few months of application.
Color Sealers both re-color the grout and seal the grout lines from bacteria and stains.  Grout Works always guarantees our grout sealer against cracking, chipping and peeling.  Always be sure to ask the company you hire if they are using a stain or a sealer.

Color Sealer vs Clear Sealer

There are many clear grout sealers on the market today.  The main concern with a clear sealer is how often they need to be re-applied.  Most clear sealers will require that the floor be stripped and re-sealed every 2 to 3 years.  The reason for this is that clear sealers will all start to turn yellow and break down over time.
The other disadvantage to clear sealers is that unless the grout is brand new, you are sealing in stains and discoloration.  Because the stains and discoloration have penetrated deep into the grout lines they are unable to be removed by steam or pressure cleaning machines.  These machines will be able to remove some of the surface dirt but not the deep stains and grout discoloration.  
Grout Works permanent color sealer was designed to make grout lines look brand new regardless of how dirty and discolored the grout is.  We start by deep cleaning the grout removing all surface dirt and bacteria, we then apply our proprietary color seal that penetrates deep into the grout lines covering all stains and discoloration.  Once the grout has been color sealed, the grout lines are PERFECT!  Grout Works grout sealer does not have to be re-applied because it will not break down or turn yellow.  With proper maintenance Grout Works grout sealer will last a lifetime.
