If the Contractor installed all ceramic tile the way it should be, there would be less wear and tear damage and degradation of finishes, and home improvement would be a walk in the park unless you have an epoxy floor, of course!
Unfortunately, tile setters are paid only to lay tile and install the grout. Most of the contractors who hire them don’t consider the long-term use of the product and how important proper grout sealing and maintenance are.
Some builders are simply under the impression that tile and stone will stay attractive; they aren’t around to see the finishes after months or years of use.
They leave the installation to the tile setter or epoxy contractor, assuming the applicator will take anything to do with that scope of work care of by them. Usually, even in new construction, sealing and protecting the floor finish gets left up to the homeowner.
Taking a few steps to protect tile and grout as soon as they are installed will save some grief down the road.
Using appropriate sealers on the new tile will ensure that dirt will have a tougher time reaching the surface, but any surface, sealed or not, will need cleaning after continuous use. Grout and tile respond differently to stains and dirt, but both become worn and need attention through the years.
