Posted By MyGuy
Floors receive a ton of abuse but, don’t worry; there are a few simple
steps you can take to prevent the floors from becoming so dirty. What
follows is a concise compilation of what the experts recommend to extend
the life of your flooring. Do you know what and where you can purchase
the products the professionals use to clean your tile and natural stone
surfaces? Below are some of the common mistakes that many consumers make
when selecting products to use on their flooring for cleaning and sealing.
Sealing is very important.
Yes, you should seal your grout and or stone. If you choose to seal it
yourself, we the ToFixIt experts recommend Modern Stone’s Rapid
Seal. This is a penetrating water-based sealer that is easy to use as
water-based products make for easy clean up. Tech Seal’s solvent
based formula is more readily absorbed by grout and stone than water-based
formulas. The disadvantage is that it is more difficult to use as solvents
can leave an oily mess to clean without the proper method and equipment.
However, for the homeowner that desires the best protection, most consistent
grout appearance and greatest ease of maintenance, we recommend colored
sealer. We recommend you have this applied by a professional.
