Color Seal is meant to change the appearance of your grout. Usually this is a restorative process undertaken in the event that the grout has become stained over time.
Color Sealing will fill small cracks and holes, and provide a strong protective coating to help resist staining due to spills, general soil, and regular use. It will also give the grout a new appearance. If you have damaged grout, it is generally recommended that it be repaired at this time.
Sometimes color sealing is done to specifically change the color of the grout. Tiles with dark grout lines can make a room feel small, so a lighter color can sometimes make a large impact on the feel of a room. Color Seal can be applied in almost any color. We will show you samples of colors from a color chart and allow you to pick the best color for your home.
Expected wear for color seal is generally up to 15 years. However, this will vary depending on application, quality of product, hardness and texture of surface, type of area, surface wear, frequency, and type of maintenance products used. Weather conditions, harsh cleaning methods and high-alkaline, acidic or solvent-based cleaners will also affect wear.
At the end of the life cycle of the color seal, you will likely need to reapply it. This is an ongoing maintenance process similar to painting walls in your home. Just like the painted walls, better ongoing maintenance will increase the amount of time between complete applications and generally eliminate the need for restoration (removal and reapplication) altogether. We do provide our customers with ongoing maintenance details so that they can be sure they are using the correct products and procedures.
Regular professional cleaning cycles should be frequent, depending on use. We recommend using a professional cleaner that understands color seal and its strengths, but also the proper method of cleaning. Our Color Seal service comes with an optional maintenance plan to help your floors Stay Beautiful.
