Tile and Grout Sealants
Sealant is a topcoat of protection that helps prevent staining from spills, resists soiling and makes for easier maintenance. There are a variety of sealants to accommodate whatever look you’re trying to achieve from matte to high sheen. The sealant penetrates the grout to protect against water and oil based staining. It is non-yellowing and does not change the appearance of the grout. This is the sealer most commonly used when no stains are present.
If your grout lines are old, stained or discolored, A1 can completely change its appearance by applying a colored dye to give the appearance of freshly regrouted lines. The dye does not affect your tiles and any excess material is wiped from the tiles after the grout lines completely dry. The dye contains an impregnating sealer which acts as a repellent to soils and makes routine cleaning easier.
