Cleaning terracotta tiles breathes new life into them. Furthermore, Terracotta tiles are instantly recognisable and exude warmth with their reddish-brown colouration. They have links with the Mediterranean and warmer climates, making them a hugely popular stone flooring.
Terracotta is a statement floor tile. It is available in a range of finishes, tile shapes and sizes. This 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 flooring can be, however, challenging to clean thoroughly. Grout lines are prone to staining. It is likely that when you are completing your routine mopping that dirt pushes into grout lines, building up over time. The likely conclusion is that home cleaning methods will not be able to clean this staining.
Restoring Terracotta Tiles
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. We then apply a stone-specific cleaning solution to the flooring. Our industrial rotary machines then agitate the solution. This is then rinsed.
Our professional stone cleaning machinery reaches into every corner and to the edges of your stone floor tiles to make sure that we achieve a seamlessly restored stone floor. We ensure to protect all of your skirting boards and furniture while this process is taking place.
The Terracotta floor then needs to dry thoroughly with our fast-drying machinery. This allows us to start the stone polishing phase. Diamond encrusted rotary pads achieve the sheen this customer was looking to achieve.
These tiles were then sealed by hand. This ensures that our results are long-lasting. Furthmore, it 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.
