Candy, why is it a problem how long it takes to dry?
Are you getting mildew? Sealers help keep dirt out
but are not effective at waterproofing grout. If your
getting mildew on the tile as well as the grout, you
probably need a bath fan (or if you have one, to run
it longer). If there is mildew just on or in the grout,
it's usually because the floor was not laid with
sufficient slope to drain the water that always gets
past the tile; or possibly the drain's weep holes
are clogged. There's not much that can be done about
these last two problems short of redoing the floor and pan.
If mildew is not a problem and you just want the floor
to dry faster for whatever reason, the window may be
enough, but a good bath fan is probably better.
