Whenever you have a plan of placing a grout in your natural stone tile you should allow 1-2 days from when you applied the adhesive before beginning to grout. Always make sure that you clean the grout joints thoroughly and have taped off the areas which are not included in grouting in order to avoid grout from spilling over the tile. Mix the grout according to manufacturers specifications. It should have a fine consistency in order to have a fine and lump-free finished product. After you have done pouring all the natural stone tile joints with grout clean the surface of the tile with damp cloth after 10 minutes but be sure not to wipe out the grout from any of the tile joints.
This should not be counted as a negative side to natural stone tiles as there are ways to maintain them and we must bear in mind that any natural products requires maintenance. Once natural stone tiles are laid there are three steps that must be done to maintain the tiles which includes filling washing and sealing. This process must be repeated every two to five years depending on the quality of natural stone. The first step after laying the tiles is to fill them. All the holes must be filled with filler of the same color. Any gap between the tiles must be grouted. You need to allow one to two days for the filler and grout to be dried.
