The grout on my ceramic tile floor is discolored. I tried cleaning it, but the colors are now different. Is there a way to color the grout?

Grout ColorSealing is a perfect solution for you. Most tile and grout cleaning companies offer this service now. One major caveat: you want to be careful to use a company that uses a quality color seal product. Some companies are out there selling this service but are using a product that is tantamount to acrylic house paint. The problem with this is that even though it might look great immediately, in a short time it starts peeling and looking worse than before the service was done. Plus, paint-type color sealers won’t have the other advantages a quality color sealing product has, such as:


  • Constant acting mildewcides (think about the bacteria that grows when foods and drinks, not to mention other accidents, illnesses, etc. penetrate into unsealed grout...)
  • Long lasting -- 5 + years generally
  • You can literally pour things like soy sauce directly on your grout and wipe it up. 
  • You can change the color of your grout completely... even from dark to light. 

Before hiring a grout cleaning company, be sure to do your homework and ask questions. 

TIP: All of the tile and grout cleaning companies listed as a Certified Stone and Tile PRO Partner as well as www.tileandgroutcleaning.net use only high quality color seal product.
