Sealing Victorian Tiles The Expert Method

Historically, Victorian clay tiles were treated with a magical elixir made from linseed oil and wax. This concoction would bring out the vibrant hues of the tiles, giving them a high sheen. But alas, as time went on, the linseed oil would lose its mojo and the colors would fade into the background.

Applying linseed oil was no joke, my friend. It was a risky business, with oily cloths that could burst into flames at any moment. Talk about a hot mess! Thankfully, we've come a long way since then.

Modern-day sealers are the superheroes of tile protection. They're safer than ever, providing unbeatable defense and easy application. It's like a shield of armor for your precious floors, without any of the drama.

Encaustic Tiles Cleaning The Expert Strategy

Cement encaustic tiles are becoming much more popular. These cement tiles might have designs and colours hydraulically pressed on the surface and they can be hand painted.

Like other ceramic tiles, Encaustic tiles are usually straightforward to clean, and need little maintenance. Still, because they're created from cement, they are permiable and so should always be sealed to prevent soil becoming trapped within the tile.

When you finish cleaning, the initial colours in the floor can look washed-out, so we recommend using a colour intensifying sealer to bring back the the original colour tones.
