Testimonials

We got our tiles more than 25 years ago. We were told that we had a solvent sealer on our tiles, which apparently most companies wouldn't be able to strip off. However we rang a couple of places to check them out. No luck. A friend of mine recommended Tile Cleaners. We rang the guys and they agreed to have a look the next day. We decided to go ahead with the job after getting a satisfactory quote. Tile Cleaners team stripped and resealed our old tiles. We are very grateful for your help guys. Thank you again.

I was about to sell my house, but was not happy with the tiles in the dining area. The tiles were white and shiny but the grout looked really dark and dirty. I already had a potential client; however the dark grout ruined the beauty of the room. I didn't have much time to fix the grout and decided to call Tile Cleaners as my real estate agency mentioned them. As my real estate agent said, Tile cleaners responded really quickly. They also pointed out that some of the grout was coming off in the hallway when they were there, which I had not even noticed. Thank you for fixing my problem so quickly. The house is sold now and I left your details with the new owner so they can keep the tiles in good condition.

When I moved into my new house, I was shocked by how dirty and old the tiles in the entire house looked. I wasn't sure if they were supposed to be like that or if they were just really dirty. I decided to call Tile Cleaners and ask them to have a look and tell me what I could do to improve the look of my tiles. Tile Cleaners ® came the same weekend and managed to make my tiles look brand new. They also informed me that the sealer would protect my tiles for years to come. Amazing! Thank you guys! My floor looks gorgeous.

Common Bluestone Restorations

There are a range of different problems that can arise when working with a natural stone such as bluestone. It is a stunning stone when cared for but can be rather unappealing when stained or when peeling, grout damage and deterioration has occurred.

Removal of Efflorescence from Bluestone Tiles

Efflorescence is the white, chalky residue that often occurs in outdoor paving, usually in the grout. The problem usually arises when salts come in contact with the tile from an outside source usually ground water. This is most evident in porous tiles like Bluestone where the efflorescence can seep through with ease. Other than being unattractive, the problems really arise when the efflorescence cracks the sealer on the tile.

Tile Cleaners® will sometimes need to use a harsher product to remove such staining, as the natural “bloom” needs to be killed off so it doesn't return. This problem is due to either excess moisture from above or below the tile. To avoid efflorescence ensure there is sufficient drainage in the area and it is thoroughly cleaned, particularly outdoors.

Removing efflorescence can be challenging. Our products are superior to those you will find at the supermarket and will not only remove the stains but ensure they don't return.

Treating Stains on Bluestone Tiles

If your bluestone has never been sealed or you weren't quite quick enough wiping up a stain, you might be left with an uneven, unpleasant looking floor. Most stains can be removed or their appearance lessoned. Obviously the quicker we can get to a stain the more chance we have of saving your bluestone.

The removal of the stain will depend on:

  • What has caused it
  • How long it has been on the surface
  • If the Bluestone has been sealed previously
  • If it is indoor or outdoor

The natural colours and textures of bluestone is what give it that unique beauty. Residue, waxes, and other impurities obscure the natural stone and a professional clean with conditioning products and world class sealers will remover these and add beneficial minerals back to the stone. The waste and water is extracted as we go so the area is not left wet.

Frequently Asked Questions


You will know it's time to have your bluestone floors stripped, cleaned and sealed once they begin to appear dull or "matte" even after you have given them an efficient regular clean. If you notice that your bluestone tiles are staining easily, it is a good indication that your previous sealer is wearing off and your bluestone floors will need to be resealed immediately to prevent permanent staining.

Yes, our tile cleaning services are safe! Tile Cleaners® generally use only the highest quality water based products alongside our state of the art cleaning machinery to provide the best cleaning solution without compromising your bluestone tiles. Stone tiles are porous and require more attention than man made tiles, which is why its extremely important to use the correct products and equipment necessary to bring your bluestone tiles back to their best possible condition. Tile Cleaners® prides itself on specifically catering for each tile variety.

Tile Cleaners® prefer to use high quality non-solvent based stripping and sealing products. These products are not messy and won't damage your bluestone tiles or anything else in your home. Current non-solvent based strippers and techniques are more than adequate. Tile Cleaners® technicians can apply solvent based strippers in very specific circumstances, however this requires leaving the premises for up to 48 hours and a very high level of safety and protection.

Here at Tile Cleaners® we understand the importance of your family's safety, which is why Tile Cleaners® prefer to use non-toxic finishing agents as we not only want to protect your bluestone floors, but your families health too. Materials and agents that present potential health hazards are not in our product portfolio and never have been.

Bluestone tiles stripping and sealing is simply the process of stripping the coating off the bluestone floor before resealing it. Bluestone flooring can look dull and lifeless over time, making it look older and really bringing down the feel of the home. By stripping and resealing, you can bring back the beautiful, lustrous appearance of your bluestone and eliminate the cost of laying new flooring.

Our professional team will go through the job processes with you step by step so you know exactly what you're getting. The process includes stripping any previous sealer if it was applied, the bluestone is then thoroughly cleaned and neutralised so that it is free of dust, residue and anything else that can affect the new sealer. A new sealer is applied to the dry bluestone floor and allowed to set. The newly sealed bluestone floor will not only look new again, it will be protected and result in your bluestone becoming easier to maintain.

It depends on the type of sealer used and the amount of foot traffic the bluestone tiles are being exposed to. Australia's Deepshield® range of deep impregnating water based sealer's, offer long term benefits with Deepshield Gold® lasting up to 15 years. Topical sealer's have a life expectancy of around 3 years. If you have a high amount of foot traffic or perhaps severe weather conditions(for outdoor tiles), you may experience a shorter lifetime. Sealing your bluestone tiles can also depend on the tiles condition. Once they start showing patchy areas and are staining easily then you should have them resealed. Give us a call and we can assist you with all your enquiries.

Bluestone floors can damage easily, any oily or harsh spills can damage the bluestone tiles and penetrate the pores leaving a permanent stain, unreachable by domestic cleaning methods. We strongly recommend sealing you bluestone tiles to keep their natural look and feel, to protect them against permanent staining and to prevent any future accidental damage. They will look their very best for longer and will be easier and more convenient to maintain.

The best time to have your bluestone tiles sealed is immediately after installation to prevent any accidental staining or damage. You will know that your bluestone tiles need sealing once you start noticing patchy sealed areas of the floor and/or your bluestone tiles are staining easier.

Efflorescence is a problem that bluestone and most porous tiles can face. It's the tendency of the water in the bluestone to bring salts from the stone to the surface as it evaporates. The water evaporates leaving the salts on the surface resulting in a whitish coating and ruining its finish. The only way to avoid this problem is to seal your bluestone tiles with one of our highest quality water resistant sealer's and to stop the source of the water that is penetrating the tiles, for example a water pipe leak or damaged grout.

To keep your bluestone tiles and grout looking new, Tile Cleaners® recommend cleaning each week with a mild detergent to remove any dirt or grime from the bluestone surface. Strong detergents(strong acid or alkali) may affect the sealer, mild detergents and pH neutral substances are strongly recommended.

Tile Cleaners® charge per square meter for each separate room or area. There is a price list on the Tile Cleaners® website for you to review. Before we begin our work we will measure each room individually, confirm the work to be carried out as well as confirm all costs with you.

We recommend that you measure each bluestone area separately. The simplest way to measure is by multiplying the width by the length. For example a room that is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide is 3 X 2 = 6m2 in total.

Tile Cleaners® technicians can help to move items that one person could be expected to move such as furniture with wheels, light furniture, tables and chairs, however as Tile Cleaners® insurance covers our restoration services, we will not be held liable for any damage caused to furniture or property you request our technicians to move.

Move all furniture and items off the floor so it is ready for when we arrive.
