Do you seal marble before grouting?
Then, how long after sealing marble can I grout?
Usually directions tell us to grout within 16-24 hours when using sealer as a grout release. I would grout 2-10 hours after applying the sealer to be safe. After grouting, do the final cleanup either the next day or a few day later to allow the grout to cure.
One may also ask, how do you seal marble tile grout? Use an impregnating sealer for best results.
- Fill a spray bottle with a commercial stone cleanser or a mild, pH-neutral cleanser.
- Sponge a thick, even layer of marble sealer onto the stones.
- Wipe the excess sealer off the marble with a dry cloth after 15 minutes.
- Apply a second coat of sealer and repeat the process.
Similarly, do you need to seal polished marble?
If my marble surface is polished to a high finish, does it still need to be sealed? Yes. Marble and natural stone regardless of the finish is still porous and is susceptible to dirt penetrating the surface and staining. The surface still should be sealed with a penetrating sealer.
