Cleaning Victorian Tile

Victorian tile floors are produced using natural clay, because of this they're relatively soft compared to glazed porcelain and most other ceramic floor tiles. Harsh restoration pads can remove your surface of the tile. Abrasive cleaning can take away a pattern from encaustic tiles, spoiling your floor and spoiling your look of a floor.

Water is essential in restoration, but cleaning Victorian tiles, use only a small amount as possible. Victorian floor tiles tend to be on old permeable, unstable sub-floors. So water must not soak into the sub-floor. Way too much water can affect your sub-floor, raising individual floor tiles or whole regions of the floor.

Victorian Tiles Grouting

Gaps between tiles should be filled with grout to help stabilise the floor.

Sealing Victorian Tiles The Specialist 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 skilled Strategy

Encaustic cement tiles have become much more popular. These cement tiles may have patterns and colours mechanically pressed into the surface and some are also hand painted.

Like many ceramic tiles, Encaustic tiles are generally easy to clean, and need little maintenance. Still, being created from cement, they are microporous and thus must be sealed to avoid dirt getting trapped within the tile.

After cleaning, the initial colours within the tiles can seem washed out, so we recommend putting on a colour intensifying sealer to regenerate the the original colour tones.
