Sealing Victorian Tiles The Skilled Professional Method

Victorian clay tiles were originally treated with a magical elixir of linseed oil and wax. At first, this concoction elevated the vibrant tones of the floor, but over time, the oil would start to break down, muting its once glorious colors. And let's be real, applying linseed oil without proper precautions is like playing with fire - quite literally! Those oily cloths can spontaneously combust, and nobody wants that.
Modern-day sealers have come to the rescue, offering a safer, more protective, and a more easy-to-apply solution. It's like upgrading from a horse-drawn carriage to a sleek, high-speed sports car.

So, if you're tired of your floors looking like they've been stuck in a time warp, it's time to ditch the old-school linseed oil and embrace the wonders of modern sealers. Your floors will thank you, and your safety will remain intact. It's a win-win situation, my friend.

Encaustic Tiles Cleaning The Specialist Way

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

Like other ceramic tiles, Encaustic tiles are usually simple to look Upon, and need minimal routine maintenance. However, because they are produced from cement, the tiles are permiable and thus ought to be sealed in order to prevent soil getting trapped inside the tile.

After cleaning, the initial colours inside the floor can appear washed out, so we recommend putting on a colour intensifying sealer to regenerate the depth of colour.
