Sealing floor tiles - advice, how to(3 posts)
A picture of my floor that needs sealing.
I am thinking a light dusting of DE in cracks then seal the cracks. What is the proper stuff to seal them with? Clear caulk, what kind? A different sealer? If it's not made out of yarn or shoes, afraid I don't know much about home fix-it's but learning.
Your expert advice is welcome. Thanks - Portland OR.
You could use clear silicon caulk or white. Caulk is caulk. It just takes time to do it. There is a tool though that can speed things up. I forgot what it's called but basically it's like a plastic business card with a 45 degree angle snipped off one of the corners and as you scrape it along baseboards ( the 90 degree angle from floor to wall ) it makes a perfect line of smoothed out caulk. I would check the dollar store. I get good clear silicon caulk for a dollar a tube. The caulking guns are a dollar as well. $5.00 can go a long way

Silicone caulk is not paintable but there are others, DAP acrylic plus silicone was my choice, Search the threads for caulk. Way back when I wrote a big post on my sealing efforts.
