The grout is a construction material and it is generally used to fill gaps and seal joints – exactly like those between tiles. Although it has a variety of uses, it is on any tiled floor or wall that you will probably see grout regularly.

As tiled floorings are commonly used in wash rooms and kitchens, spillages are common and the porosity means that grout can be stained very quickly, even if the spillage is cleaned up almost immediately.
There are many preventative measures that can be taken to help aid cleaning efforts, but the best course of action is to apply a good quality sealer. The sealer can either be a clear sealer or a colour grout sealer. You may wish to consult a company which specializes in tile grout cleaning and will be able to recommend one for you.
