Sealing prevents chances of fading, dullness, or staining. Try using a warm soapy water solution to get rid of stubborn stains. If the stains still do not come off, you can apply baking soda paste.

Yes, the grouting of areas with outside tiles is particularly crucial. It is because patios can be damaged by dirt and bad weather, but one of the best methods to guard against this is through appropriate grouting. Grouting will close the spaces between tiles, preventing dirt buildup and harm to the outside tiles.

Two major grout types can be used outside. Conventional cement-based grout is the first and grout applied with a brush is the second.

For outdoor tiles, cement is frequently the ideal base material. It offers a solid and secure foundation that aids in distributing the pavers' weight evenly and prevents shifting or sinking over time. The installation of a cement base, also known as a concrete slab, assures that the outdoor tiles will have a sturdy and long-lasting surface. Before pouring the concrete, the cement base needs to be properly prepared, which includes digging, compacting the soil and adding a layer of crushed stone or gravel for drainage.
