Grout renders a very neat and well-maintained look to your flooring. It is not only decorative but also protective. Grout is a mixture of sand and cement which is filled in the void between two tiles to join them. This grout tends to come off after some time if not sealed properly. A good grout sealer should not be bulky else it will ruin the surface completely. Keeping these points in mind, pFOkUS has come up with a high-grade grout sealant named Caponi – a colored epoxy grout sealer, which protects the grout and prevents it from wearing off.
Why does Grout Wear Off?
- Many times, people use a low-quality grout for sealing their tiles. A low-quality grout is a mixture with more water or poor quality of cement. This hardens in small chunks and wears off.
- Sometimes, if the underlayment was not installed properly, the grout comes out. This is a common issue with most tiles and many people resort to re-grouting because they are unaware of other innovative and breakthrough solutions which offer a permanent fix.
What are the Problems with Re-Grouting?
When people resort to re-grouting, they often find a color mismatch in their tiles which makes it obvious to the onlooker that the surface has been restored. Re-grouting is also not a permanent solution as it will eventually wear off again. To avoid all these issues with grouting, we have made Caponi which is an epoxy grout sealer.
6 Reasons Why You Should Seal Your Grout with a Good Colored Epoxy Grout Sealer:
When you don’t seal your grout with a good sealer, it soon cracks or wears off, giving a dirty and un-maintained appearance to your flooring.
The area from where the grout has cracked stores water, making it stagnant. Stagnant water is an excellent breeding ground for mold, fungus and mildew.
Grout is porous by nature as it is made from sand and cement. If you do not seal the grout, it absorbs dirty water, leading to mold and mildew formation.
Mold and mildew, if not cleaned immediately, lead to eye problems, runny nose and other respiratory problems.
An unsealed grout becomes discolored and stained giving a blacking appearance to your tiles, thereby ruining the look of your costly tile.
If the grout has worn off completely, the tiles can come off loose without the presence of a good joint between them. This can be very dangerous to someone walking barefoot on the flooring.
