Water is vital in restoration, But when cleaning Victorian tiles, use minimal as you possibly can. Victorian floor tiles in many cases are on old porous, unstable sub-floors.

Sealing Victorian Tiles The Specialist Strategy To Use

Histiorically, Victorian clay tiles were all about that linseed oil and wax treatment. It was like a magical potion that brought out the vibrant hues in the floor, but alas, time took its toll. The linseed oil would break down and dull the colors, like a faded memory of what once was.

But fear not, my friend! We have entered the modern era, where sealers reign supreme. These bad boys are not only safer than a walk in the park, but they also provide top-notch protection for your precious tiles. And the best part? They're a breeze to apply, like a gentle caress on a summer's day.

Gone are the days of oily cloths causing spontaneous combustion. Say goodbye to the dangers of yesteryear and embrace the ease and safety of our modern sealers. Your floors will thank you, and you'll be the envy of all your neighbors.

So, let's bid adieu to the old ways and welcome the new with open arms. It's time to give your tiles the love and care they deserve, without any of the risks. Trust us, your floors will shine brighter than ever before.

Encaustic Tiles Cleaning The Specialist Strategy To Use

Encaustic cement tiles are getting very popular. These cement tiles may have patterns and colours automatically pressed into the surface and some are also painted by hand.

Like many ceramic tiles, Encaustic tiles are in general straight forward to clean, and need little maintenance. However, being produced from cement, the tiles are permiable and thus are best sealed in order to prevent dirt becoming trapped in the tile.

After cleaning, the original colours inside the tiles can seem washed-out, so we recommend applying a colour intensifying sealer to bring back the the original colours.
