Whether your floors are made of ceramic tiles or stone tiles, any tiled flooring requires grout. Grout is just the mortar-like putty used to keep ceramic tiles and other floor tiles in place. Once it dries up, it holds the tile in place like cement. But grout is very porous and collects dirt and also can wear out just like any other material, and so needs regular cleaning and maintenance. Over time, as it wears out, you may face problems like permanent discoloration if you don’t carry out periodic maintenance.
In the case of stone tiles, it can be small and need only minimal attention, but in the case of ceramic tiles, the it can be significant and need regular cleaning, and occasional resealing to prevent permanent discoloration. Your tiles are held in place, without getting chipped or cracked only by your grout. Your stone and grout cleaning Jacksonville company will seal and clean your grout for you. Your building contractor might use any one of two types of grout - either sanded or unsanded. While for the laying of stone tiles, unsanded grout is used, for ceramic and other tiles, sanded grout is used. Both types need to be sealed in, with resealing to maintain the grout which faces constant wear and tear.
