Sealing and Maintenance

Laporsa Tile Distributors Ltd recommend that all porcelain is to be sealed after fitting, even though our polished porcelain is factory sealed, after fitting the grout which is applied to the surface contains acid, which could remove the factory seal from the surface thus leaving your tiles untreated.

Q - Why do I need to seal the tiles?

A - Sealing the tiles will maintain their appearance and make general cleaning easier and avoid any staining from coffee, shoe polish, pen marks etc.
