  • What is the best way to seal ceramic tiles?

  • It is important for the sealer applicator to be able to apply an even coat of sealer to the surface of the ceramic tiles. The applicator must also be able to pull the sealer out of the grout lines so that pools of sealer do not settle in the grout lines. A thin even coat of sealer will provide the best looking most durable type of finish.

  • Does tile need to be sealed?

  • If your tile is ceramic or porcelain, it probably won’t need to be sealed. There are some exceptions to this, so check with your manufacturer to be sure. If your tile is stone (slate, marble, granite, travertine, etc.) then it will need to be sealed. Stone is naturally porous and will absorb spills and stain fairly easily.

  • Can you put more than one coat of sealer on ceramic tile?

  • Also you do not want to allow the sealer to fully cure over a few hours before applying additional coats of sealer. It is generally not recommended to apply more than three coats of glossy sealer to ceramic tiles. Too many layers of sealer can start to crack and not properly adhere to the preceding layers of sealer.

  • Can I use non-slip floor sealer on ceramic tiles?

  • Secondly, non-slip sealers may be used. We do not recommend any sealing of ceramic tiles. When using a non-slip floor sealer you need to expect that reapplication may be required often and a new cleaning problem can be created. Thirdly, the ultimate solution is to re-tile with a suitable tile or surface for the application.
