At Chinook Chem-Dry, we understand the importance of having a peaceful and relaxing home environment where you can unwind and recharge. While external factors like work stress or family dynamics may impact your home life, there are some aspects that you can manage. Maintaining clean and hygienic living spaces is crucial for ensuring a healthy home, and a great place to start is by focusing on your stone or tile surfaces. Discover why regular sealing of your stone and tile can be a critical step in safeguarding your family’s health and the long-term well-being of your home.

The Benefits of Using a Sealant

It is important to use a sealant because of grout. Grout is a low-cost sand mixture that fills holes effectively. It’s crucial that grout is sealed correctly in order to last. Because grout is porous, it becomes an ideal environment for dust, mold, fungus, and dirt to grow. Therefore, applying effective protection is essential to maintain healthy tile and stone surfaces, and a grout sealant achieves just that.

Protect All Areas of Your Home

Does your morning shower feel refreshing or more like entering a potential biohazard zone? With the high levels of moisture in your bathroom, mold and mildew growth can become a real issue, making it necessary to take extra care of these hotspot areas. To maintain the quality and appearance of your surfaces, it is crucial to apply a sealant after a thorough tile and grout cleaning.

Sealing your stone, tile, and grout lines is crucial to maintaining a clean and hygienic living environment in your home. Without proper sealing, stains can quickly become ingrained and difficult to remove, causing lasting damage to your surfaces.

To ensure maximum protection, it is recommended to reseal your grout annually in high-traffic areas and immediately after any deep cleaning. Even in low-traffic areas, regular resealing every 4-5 years is essential to prevent long-term damage and maintain the appearance of your surfaces. Don’t neglect any part of your home and take the necessary steps to keep your surfaces protected and looking their best.

Invest in Your Tile, Stone & Grout

You should be able to get the most out of your investments, and that includes your tile and grout. Oftentimes, sporadic or DIY maintenance is not enough. Tile and/or stone require a professional deep clean to maximize its lifespan, as well as provide you the peace of mind that comes from a clean and safe house for you and your family.
