Should I Seal My Tile?

If you have a tile floor in your home, then you might have spent a considerable amount of time admiring it. Strange as this might sound, tile floors create a considerable amount of style and aesthetic, especially when they’re kept properly clean. Two rooms that benefit from this addition are primarily the kitchen and the bathroom. However, keeping the tile in both these areas can sometimes be a challenge. Both areas are known for high traffic and usage throughout the course of an entire day.

You’ve probably heard several DIY practitioners, as well as experts on home maintenance, praise the act of getting any tiled area of your house properly sealed. Trust us when we say that the advantages quite literally pay for themselves. 

No Tile Left Behind

Having a proper sealant applied to your tile flooring can be beneficial. However, some tiles have already been sealed prior to being sold. If you have any of these in your home then getting a sealant has most likely already been taken care of by the manufacturer. 

  • Ceramic, porcelain, or cement tiles that are glazed.
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Resin 

While these have been sealed on the surface, a sealant applied between the cracks can reduce the risk of grout, mildew, and other forms of bacteria. If you have the tiles made of the following material, sealing the cracks and surfaces which are sometimes porous like the surface of a sponge. 

  • Ceramic or porcelain tiles that have not been glazed by the manufacturer
  • Sandstone
  • Granite & Concrete
  • Any tiles that have been made from natural stone 

Utilizing a Professional Service to Preserve Your Tile’s Integrity 

Taking care of your tile flooring is an important job. The bacteria that can formulate on or in-between the surface can cause structural damage and can even present a health hazard if not properly taken care of. While you might have the urge to take care of this issue yourself, this is another job that’s best left up to the skilled hands of a professional. Some sealants are chemical-based, and because of this, individuals who have been properly trained in the proper usage and disposal make all the difference in the world between a safe job and an unsafe one.
