Ceramic tile around a fireplace
This summer we built on an addition which included a built-in fireplace. We decided to put ceramic tile around the outside of the fireplace as well as on the floor in front of it. It says once I am done putting on the grout, I used sanded grout, I am supposed to leave it cure for a few days (72 hours) and then put on a sealer. My question is what kind of sealer do I use since this is around a fireplace which gets warm, does not get wet at all, and is not in a damp area. Everything I have read talks about using tile in a shower area which is frequently wet and a damp area. If I would only wait 24 hours for it to cure and use the fireplace will this cause the grout to start chipping or crumbling? Please help, I can't find this answer anywhere.
