Grout sealing allows for your grout to gain protection that it needs. After your floor or wall has been steam cleaned and rinsed, a proprietary, clear, and penetrating sealer will be applied to protect your grout. This will help from any discoloration, staining, and daily dirt and grime from accumulating in and around the grout.
Sealing Grout is important because it is porous and to reduce the amount of porous areas of the grout, a sealer must be applied.
