Why you should not seal grout?

Grout is porous and therefore absorbs liquids. Because of this, the reason you should not seal your tile grout is that the sealer's liquid chemicals combine with the grout to create a surface that is actually much more difficult to clean. Also, when unsealed grout gets wet, the water can evaporate and dry.
