Tile and Grout: Are Your Floors Protected?
The following is a simple water-based stain protection test you can do at home.
Step 1: Take a spoonful of water; pour it on the hard surface you wish to test, including the grout (if applicable)
Step 2: Wait 15 minutes
Step 3: Visual Test: Did the water absorb? Did the color change?
Step 4: Using a clean white absorbent cloth, ‘dab’ the excess moisture.
Step 5: Touch Test: Does the tile or grout feel wet? Does moisture still feel evident?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, your hard surfaces are not currently sealed correctly and are vulnerable to staining. Contact Antonius Bros. about getting your surface properly sealed, along with a professional tile and grout cleaning.
Sealed surfaces do not allow penetration of liquids that can become permanent. Protect your hard surfaces today, for a fraction of the cost of replacement, you won’t be sorry!
Most contractors do not seal the surfaces they install for various reasons. Primarily it cannot be done until at least 3 days following the installation, which means they’d have to come back. Most contractors do not offer a protection service and therefore do not even inform consumers of the importance of this process. As you can see from the illustrations, the benefits of sealing are obvious. There are some sealers available to the general public. Unfortunately, they are inferior to sealers that a hard surface specialist would use. Some need repetitive application, some are too easily ‘washed’ off with general maintenance products and some only protect against water based stains, leaving your floor vulnerable.
