handyguys is right, you can do the sealing yourself. I did a couple of that as well on our shower...

Those are some really nice tips!

Thanks for the link to the sealer on Amazon! I'm going to have to regrout and seal the tiles in my new bathroom too; the guy who built it didn't seal the grout and now it's coming off.

Your welcome - If the grout is loose you will want to scrape anything loose, re-grout those areas, and then re-seal. If you cant match the color of the old grout you may need to re-grout the entire thing. I haven't had much luck grouting over old grout, it should be removed. There are special scrapers made for removing old grout. You might find them at the home center and definitely you will find them at a specialty tile store.
