We recently hired Grout Bros to clean & seal our tile & grout. Not only were we very happy with the results, but they were on time for both estimate & cleaning, their price was competitive, and were professional throughout the process. Highly recommend giving them a call!

Grout Brothers cleaned and color sealed our tile floors. The floors came out excellent, they actually look better than when it was first laid as they corrected some grout definicies in the original installation with the color sealant. They first cleaned the floor with a machine that was mounted to their truck. They then created a custom color sealant that matched perfectly with the tile. I highly recommend them.

The crew was on time and did a terrific job cleaning the tile and removing all the new construction installation grout haze and then sealed the showers and floors. They worked quickly and did the entire home in about 4 hrs. We are very pleased with the results. Their post service recommendations for maintaining our tile is helpful to keep our tile looking great for years.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

HOW IS GROUT SEALER APPLIED?

Before we apply any sealer to the grout, the grout must be first deep cleaned. Once the grout is deep cleaned and dried we then use a special grout sealing applicator to apply the sealer to the grout. Letting the sealer soak in for a few minutes we then wipe off any excess sealer and let the tile surfaces dry.

WHAT IS “COLOR SEALER”?

Color sealer is a sealer that creates a barrier on top of the grout and it comes in many different colors and shades. Not only does the color sealer seal the grout, it makes the grout color consistent, which makes the tile floors look new. Color sealer also makes it easy to clean your tile floors. We use the highest quality color sealers that may last up to 15 years.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO HAVE THE GROUT SEALED?

Having the grout sealed will help protect your investment from future permanent stains. Sealed grout will help repel any liquids from soaking into the grout which can cause permanent staining. When the grout gets stained it makes it almost impossible to restore it back to the original color by just cleaning it – color sealing or re-grouting will be required to restore stained grout.

HOW SOON CAN WE WALK ON THE TILE FLOORS AFTER THE GROUT WAS SEALED?

You may use your floors as normal after roughly an hour. If you need to use the floors while the sealer is still wet, all you have to do is step over the grout lines. Pets and kids must stay off the areas with wet sealer until the sealer is dry to the touch (one hour after application).

WHAT IS “CLEAR SEALER”?

Clear sealer is a sealer with no color added. We use a high-quality penetrating clear sealer, which penetrates deep into the grout and blocks any dirt from getting into the pores of the grout. Clear sealer does not affect the look of the grout.

DO YOU REPAIR GROUT AROUND THE POOL?

No, we do not repair the grout on pool decks.

DO SEALERS PREVENT THE GROUT FROM GETTING DIRTY?

No. However, sealed grout is easier to clean because it doesn’t let dirt penetrate into the grout pores. Proper maintenance and good habits keep your floors looking clean. After every job we do, we give our customers instructions on how to keep their tile surfaces looking clean.

CAN I CLEAN MY TILE AND GROUT WITH MURIATIC ACID?

No. Muriatic acid is a very dangerous chemical and should not be used indoors – it is extremely toxic. Muriatic acid can permanently damage the tile and grout surfaces, which might require re-grouting or even replacing the tile. We only use chemicals that specifically designed for our industry and are safe.

CAN I USE VINEGAR TO CLEAN TILE SURFACES?

Yes and no. Vinegar contains acid, which will erode the grout slowly if not neutralized. To neutralize the acid, use baking soda mixed with water and mop over the area that was cleaned with vinegar.

CAN I USE BLEACH TO CLEAN THE GROUT?

No. Bleach is a chemical that is too harsh for the grout; it erodes the grout and can cause discoloration if not rinsed properly. We only recommend cleaning products containing bleach in bathroom shower areas.

DO YOU CLEAN TRAVERTINE AND MARBLE TILE FLOORS?

Yes, we utilize a very effective method of cleaning natural stone tiles such as marble and travertine. After the stone is thoroughly cleaned, we apply a high quality penetrating and impregnating sealer. The sealer will help keep dirt on the top surface rather than getting into the micro pores of the stone, which makes it easier to keep clean.
