Which grout sealer should I use?

If your grout requires sealing after cleaning, it’s important to know which grout sealer to use.

So…which grout sealer should I use?

If you have already shopped for grout sealant, you likely know that the prices vary greatly.  You probably noticed pricing from $30 per gallon, all the way up to $100 per gallon.  Many times, choosing a mid-range product with such an expansive pricing gap is sufficient.  When it comes to sealing grout and tile, The Grout Medic uses only premium contractor sealing products.  Our penetrating grout sealer formula is the #1 recommendation by far, and will produce the most optimum results.  If you decide to try anything other than premium, penetrating formulas, you will not get a dependable or long-lasting finish.

What’s so special about our premium grout sealing?

First of all, it will not change the color of your grout.  When a clear, penetrating sealant is used, it will seep into the pores of your grout, but it won’t make your grout lines look darker, nor does it contain discoloring agents that might make it look lighter or dull.  Some homeowners make the mistake of choosing high-gloss formulas, much to their own future dismay.  The Grout Medic never recommends using high-gloss sealers.  What’s more, our preferred grout sealant is safe for use on natural tile, like slate, marble, travertine, and granite.  It will penetrate your natural tile to protect it from staining between cleanings without damage or a change in appearance!  It is also important to know that you should never use sealant on any type of man-made tile.
