How long to wait before I seal grout

OK, floor is in and part of the wall (have to wait for bath vanity to be made to finish wall). My ?? is how long do I wait before I seal the grout joints? The joints are 3/16th on the floor and walls with unsanded grout and porcelain tiles.

2nd ?? is how do I know when I have enough sealer on? I figure I would do 2 applications and hopefully that should be enough.

thanks

Hi Bill and welcome,

The directions are on the bottle. TYW stone armour requests 3 days. Some require up to 14 days.

You can tell when you dribble a couple of drops of water on the grout and it beads up.

Don't put it on the porcelain tile.
