Tile and Grout Sealing

Tile and Grout Sealing

The Floor Doctors can seal your tiles and grout to prevent and reduce further staining of your tiles. We use industrial sealants which adhere to the tile and form a protective layer on the treated surface. Tile and grout sealing provides a temporary barrier and stops dirt and debris from penetrating onto your tiled floor. Thus reducing the damage caused by stains and making tile maintenance easier.

Initial protection via application of a high-quality sealant is extremely beneficial.  If concrete, tile, natural stone, and grout are not properly treated with protective agents, liquids, even water, can easily penetrate the materials; leaving unsightly stains and mineral deposits. The best solution is the application of an appropriate, long-lasting sealant to all hard surfaces, which will greatly help to guard against even the toughest stains.

Our selections of premium impregnating sealants provide deep protection from water, acid, and oil-based stains. Furthermore, we frequently recommend color-enhancing formulas, which enrich the natural luster of stone, concrete, and tile, while furnishing a penetrating sealant to preserve its radiant beauty. In most applications, we offer property  and business owners several options of sealants from which to choose. All sealed surfaces will require routine cleanings.  Property owners will be advised of appropriate maintenance programs.

Epoxy Color Sealing

To provide the long lasting clean look is to seal the grout using a quality epoxy-based color sealer. Thorough cleaning of the tiles is done prior to applying an epoxy based colorant to the grout joints.  This provides an appearance of consistency in the outlook and most importantly seals the grout to prevent any future staining.  Years of warranty comes with the epoxy-based grout colorant. The warranty is for the prevention of any future peeling, chipping, cracking or fading of the grout.

Grout Patching / Re-Grouting

Often, the tiles around your home, kitchen, bathroom or office are in good condition, however the grout that frames the tiles is discolored, stained or cracked. Leaving the appearance of your floor and wall tiles stained and looking dull. Floor Doctors can dramatically enhance your floor and walled tile appearance by re-grouting. Re-grouting your shower rooms, bathrooms, kitchens and patios will leave your tiled floors or walls looking newly restored and clean. We also apply stain sealer to the new grout. The cost of re-grouting is much cheaper then replacing an entire tiled floor or wall surface with new tiles.

There are a few options for grout repairs. A simple assessment will quickly determine the most practical approach; whether a basic re-grout will do the trick, targeting only the problem areas or an entire re-grout is necessary. Both processes may be wonderfully enhanced by the application of epoxy stains.

If substantial areas of structurally sound grout exist, the faulty grout will be removed. Once the area has been well vacuumed to remove any remaining debris, the problem joints will then be re-grouted. Although this is the quickest and easiest of grout repairs, it is very difficult to match old grout, even when the original grout color is still available. As is the case with any organic materials, an aging process naturally occurs; changing its appearance. The best remedy is a blend of several grout colors to match the primary grout. This seemingly simple step can be tricky and definitely takes an experienced, artistic eye. Absolute perfection cannot be expected.
