Terracotta Tile Cleaning Buckinghamshire

By stone1 On January 27, 2018 No Comments

Terracotta Tiles offer great character to any space where they are fitted. As a natural stone they offer incredible durability and longevity. They can be deep cleaned by professional stone cleaners. This process effectively keeps them looking at their best for the time that they are laid.

As with other types of natural stone, they will inevitably suffer from wear and tear. They are often found in kitchen areas and so therefore experience moisture variations and water spillages.

Terracotta tiles are instantly recognisable and exude warmth with their reddish-brown colouration; their history is linked with the Mediterranean and warmer climates, making them a hugely popular stone flooring.

Terracotta is a statement floor tile, available in a range of finishes, tile shapes and sizes, which allows true individuality when choosing to lay these tiles in your home or business. They are durable and versatile and have a natural feel and texture.

Terracotta Restoration BuckinghamshireTerracotta flooring can be, however, challenging to clean thoroughly. Grout lines are prone to staining and it is likely that when you are completing your routine mopping that dirt is being pushed into grout lines, building up over time. The likely conclusion is that home cleaning methods will not be able to clean this staining.

We were invited to complete this Terracotta cleaning job in Watford. This image shows the poor condition that the tiles were in prior to our arrival. They were stained, dull in appearance and really weren’t looking their best.

Having stone tiles in your entrance is a brilliant and functional flooring choice; a great welcome if they are looking bright and clean, but uninviting if they have suffered from years of wear and build up.

These beautiful Terracotta tiles were first cleaned of any dirt, soil or dry particles. A stone-specific pre-mixed cleaning solution was then applied to the flooring. Our industrial rotary machines were then used to agitate the solution, which was then rinsed.

We ensure to protect all of your skirting boards and furniture while this process is taking place.

The Terracotta floor was then thoroughly dried with our fast-drying machinery in order to start the stone polishing phase. Diamond encrusted rotary pads are used to achieve the polished sheen that this customer was looking to achieve.

These tiles were then sealed by hand which ensures that our results are long-lasting and that the stone has acts as a natural repellent against liquid spills, staining and mildew build-up. The end result was incredible and our customer was thrilled at the stone restoration process. The once dirty grout lines were now as spotless as the tiles and hygienically clean.
