As long as I've gotten training on the job for t&g we've never sealed any grout...do you have to seal grout or not. And what would be the implications either way. Thanks
How much of your pricing is cleaning/sealingI do T&G only. I always seal unless it's a home seller move out.
Here in Florida it's not uncommon for the entire house to be tile.
I have repeat customers that I sealed 7 years ago with premium solvent sealer and all I do now is clean it up annually.
In fact when I quote the price it's always cleaned and sealed.
You can do the grout lines by hand. I have used this method for smaller jobs. Another option that saves time is to use a moss rubber squeegee to spread the sealer. Try to get most of it in the grout lines. What is on the tile itself can usually be buffed off with-in 5 or 10 minutes. Don't wait too long to buff or it will dry and be more difficult to remove. However if you buff to soon and it has not penetrated into the grout, yet, you can pull up some of the sealer out of the grout.So how much in percentage to the cleaning do you charge for sealing? What's the best method for application are we taking hands and knees rolling grout lines?
Were at $1 to clean and $1.50 for clean + seal.So how much in percentage to the cleaning do you charge for sealing? What's the best method for application are we taking hands and knees rolling grout lines?
