Sealing Victorian Tiles The Professional Way

Historically, Victorian clay tiles were all about that oil and wax treatment. It was like a symphony of colors, with the oil intensifying the tones and making the floor shine like a star. But, as time went on, the linseed oil started to lose its mojo and the colors became dull and lifeless. Plus, let's not forget the dangerous dance with fire that came with applying the oil. Spontaneous combustion, anyone?

But fear not, my friend! We live in the modern age of sealers that are safer, stronger, and easier to use. It's like a superhero swooping in to save the day. These sealers provide top-notch protection for your precious tiles, while also giving them a fresh and vibrant look. No more dull and muted colors, no more risky business with oily cloths.

So, if you want to bring your Victorian tiles back to life, ditch the old-school oil and embrace the power of modern sealers. Your floors will thank you, and your safety will be intact. It's a win-win situation, my tile-loving friend. Time to seal the deal!

Encaustic Tiles Cleaning The Specialist Technique

Cement encaustic tiles are becoming a lot more popular. These cement tiles can have designs and colours automatically pressed onto the surface and some are also hand painted.

Like other ceramic tiles, Encaustic tiles are usually straight forward to clean, and require little routine maintenance. However, because they are produced from cement, they are permiable and thus must be sealed to prevent dirt becoming trapped inside the tile.

When you finish cleaning, the original colours within the floor can seem washed-out, so we suggest applying a colour intensifying sealer to regenerate the depth of colour.
