Sealing is very important.
Yes, you should seal your grout and or stone. If you choose to seal it yourself, we the ToFixIt experts http://www.tofixit.com/phoenix/index.php/home/ recommend Modern Stone’s Rapid Seal. This is a penetrating water-based sealer that is easy to use as water-based products make for easy clean up. Tech Seal’s solvent based formula is more readily absorbed by grout and stone than water-based formulas. The disadvantage is that it is more difficult to use as solvents can leave an oily mess to clean without the proper method and equipment. However, for the homeowner that desires the best protection, most consistent grout appearance and greatest ease of maintenance, we recommend colored sealer. We recommend you have this applied by a professional.
