cure time of grout
  • On the container of grout, it says to let the grout cure for 72 hours. Does this mean you can't put anything on the tile during this time. I have put the Snapstone in my laundry room and I have my new washer and dryer being deliverd in two days.

    SnapStone reply:
    You can install your new washer and dryer even after 48 hours. Be careful as the grout could be scratched by the appliance feet. If that happens, just apply a repair layer later.

    Thank you for purchasing SnapStone!

    Would I be able to use the washer after 48 hours or would the vibration of movement do something to the grout?

    SnapStone reply:
    (Sorry for the delay in the public response - we did respond privately to Lisa).

    If possible, we'd suggested avoiding vibrations from the washer for another 48 hours.

    As a reminder, after you grout:

    Avoid use for 24 hours
    Only light traffic from 24-72 hours
    No cleaners, staining materials, or scrubbing for 7 days
