Home center stuff is poor quality. Almost as good as water.yeah i have percelain. what kind of grout sealant? clear? home center stuff?
but im only sealing the grout not the tiles right? so use a mop on the grout lines?Home center stuff is poor quality. Almost as good as water.
I would use Miracle's 511 Impregnator
Test an area first. Some porcelains (cheap stuff) are not as good as one would expect and may absorb some of the sealer and look different. To avoid this using a damp mop, wet the tile slightly first.
Did I say some of this incorrectly. I am wetting so as to not seal only part of the tiles since these tiles most likely do not need sealing. Only sealing the grout, and I said wet the tile and seal the grout. Which part do you see as incorrect?Nice try there Bob. You wet before you paint....not before you seal, everyone knows that.....?:whistling2:
Generally you only need to seal the grout. However, both glazed ceramic and all porcelain can also be sealed to fill microscopic pores. You will think none is being absorbed, but a small amount is.
If you use a high quality sealer such as 511, it tells you right in the data to apply on the tiles too. In addition to filling the pores, 511 on glazed tiles make them LESS slippery. HUH? YES, Less slippery.
Make sure you follow directions and wipe off all excess material from the tiles.
