Why Do My Tile Floors Always Look Dirty?
Annually, Tru-Clean Surface Care cleans, seals or grout color seals hundreds of tile floors throughout SW Florida, and the majority of our clients ask us, why is it so hard to keep my tile and grout clean?
When tile is installed, the installation often doesn’t include sealing the grout, which lets grime, spills, and bacteria seep in, discoloring the grout. In some cases, this discoloration is permanent. When grout has been permanently stained, the staining can not be “cleaned away,” the only options available if the homeowner is looking for a brand new look is to have the grout removed and replaced (an expensive option) or grout color sealing. Clear and grout color sealed floors guard against staining allowing the homeowner time to wipe up spills with a paper towel.
When choosing grout color sealing, your grout will complement your tile and look better than brand new. Grout color sealing by Tru-Clean Surface Care ensures a uniform look throughout your tiled areas and is stain-resistant to prevent further staining and bacteria. Our grout color sealer is designed to be permanent and contains a mildewcide to combat bacteria. We provide a wide range of color options for sealing, and clients can either get back their original grout color or choose a new one that complements their tile and home décor. A simple change in grout color can dramatically alter the entire floor’s appearance.
Unsealed Grout vs. Sealed Grout
As mentioned earlier, newly installed grout in new homes is rarely sealed. Because grout is porous, it quickly becomes “ugly” due to regular mopping, spills, dirt, pet accidents, etc. and will absorb bacteria like a sponge. If professionally cleaned on a routine basis, you can keep the “ugly” at bay. If stains are left too long, the color of the grout will be replaced with permanent staining. In contrast to unsealed grout, sealed grout repels spills, dirt, and bacteria, making cleaning effortless while protecting the color of your grout. A clear sealer is usually all a client needs after a professional cleaning. In those instances where splotchiness remains after a deep cleaning or if the client wants to change or enhance the color of their grout, color sealing is the perfect option. Our commercial-grade clear sealer will protect the existing color of your grout from spills and further staining, while grout color sealer will colorize the look of your grout to brand new while also sealing the grout.
Good To Know: Commercial grade clear sealers are designed to last between 2-4 years, depending on the foot traffic in your home, along with regular mopping. Grout color sealer by Tru-Clean Surface Care is guaranteed for as long as you live in your home with proper maintenance.

If we notice any divots or scrapes in your grout, we’ll retouch these areas at no cost.
Our Grout Color Seal Process
We begin by thoroughly cleaning the tile and grout to remove any dirt, oils, spills, staining, and bacteria. Once dry, we then apply our proprietary color sealer designed to penetrate your porous grout deeply while protecting it and covering all stains and discoloration. The result of this process results in flawless grout lines. Unlike clear sealers, grout color sealer does not require reapplication, as it won’t break down. With proper care, our grout sealer is guaranteed to last as long as you live in your home.
