Ceramic tile sealant is just the thing you need when you want your stone or ceramic tile to keep that look it has when it is wet. Many will tell you that this just isn’t possible, that there isn’t a sealant for these types of tile floors. Oh, but there is a product that will do what you want!
Ceramic Tile Sealant
There is a ceramic tile sealant name Glazed Guard (by CoverTec) that will give your ceramic, porcelain or stone tiles that just washed, shiny wet look. You will need to hire a professional to have this done properly, but in a nutshell the floor has a special cleaning procedure first. Then the sealant is applied and it bonds hard to the tiles. It should last three to five years before a reapplication is necessary. This product comes in matte, satin and high gloss.
Having a sealer applied to your tile will help keep your floor in that beautiful, glossy wet look. It also helps keep dirt from getting embedded in the grout. Cleaning grout is hard labor and if you have a steam cleaning company do it, it isn’t a cheap procedure. So, sealing the tiles is a good way to reduce the amount of dirt that needs to be scrubbed out. Your floors will look beautiful most of the time.
Not all ceramic tile sealants are the same. Some will scratch and wear off quickly. So, contact US Hardwood and Carpet to speak with one of our tile specialists.
