How to seal grout


One way is to buy grout sealer and brush it on the grout.It is that simple. If you have a tile supply store in your area they can probably sell you everything you need and tell you how to do it. You can get everything at a big box but you will get beter product and expertise at a tile supply house.

How to seal grout


beerdog is giving good advice about going to a supply house. Dupont makes a line of products called StoneTech that get good reviews on John Bridge.

How to seal grout


I like to use sponge brushes to apply grout sealer, just a personal preference. Time periods between sealing will vary depending on the product you use and the exposure of the grout. Check the label.
