Testimonials

I noticed that some of the tiles in my bathroom walls were loose and the grout was coming off. I am a very busy so kept on postponing calling someone to fix it. One day I got home and the loose tiles were lying broken on the floor. Can you imagine my frustration? I rang my brother in panic and he gave me Tile Cleaners' contact details. I rang them straight away. The guys told me I needed a tiler and professional regrouting work done so I thought it would take ages to fix my problem. However they organized the work very well. I had my tiles fixed on Friday night the same week and the entire bathroom regrouted on Saturday. Thank you some much for your quick help; it was such a relief.

Kerry McMyre, Mosman, NSW

My mother's tiles were old and ugly, as she has been living in the same house her entire life without ever really taking care of her tiles. I called Tile Cleaners to get advice on what to do with them. They came to her house the next day to have a look at my mum's tiles. I am very satisfied with how patient and highly professional you were with my mother. I am sorry I couldn't be there when you arrived, and I am really impressed by how you managed to explain everything to my mom and help her out. Thank you for doing a great job.

Angela Coopers, Concord, NSW

Thank you Tile Cleaners ® for dealing with the solvent sealer I had and resealing my hallway; I know it's a pain but you did a great job. I will definitely call you again as I need help with my tiles in the office.

Tile Cleaners® are Donnybrook Stone cleaning, stripping, sealing and restoration experts.

Donnybrook Stone is a versatile and durable sandstone originating near the town of Donnybrook in Western Australia. Donnybrook Stone is available in colour variations ranging from white to beige to deep pink. Donnybrook Stone produces excellent floor tiles, cladding material and looks fantastic around the swimming pool and elsewhere in the garden; in fact, large structural walls, commercial facades and entire buildings are found made entirely from Donnybrook Stone.

Cleaning Donnybrook Stone Floors

The primary cause for Donnybrook Stone floors becoming dull and lacklustre is foot traffic. Prolonged use will grind and pack in dust, sand and grit. Although the scratching that occurs is very fine, it eventually covers the majority of the surface and over time dulls the finish to the point where it loses its reflective properties. To make your stone surfaces smooth and reflective, we employ the use of high speed polishers.

Donnybrook Stone floors can be prone to scratching, staining and fracturing. The tiles should also be allowed to breath instead of being covered by synthetic sealers or urethane. Tile Cleaners® offer the best solution to protect your Donnybrook Stone using highly penetrating, impregnating water based sealers, creating a barrier that provides protection against chemical attack, deterioration and contamination.

Donnybrook Stone is a soft variety of sandstone that will stain easier than marble, varies in hardness and does become etched by acids including soft drink, as well as absorbs oils and other liquids. Donnybrook Stone should be sealed with a penetrating sealer to prevent staining and reduce soiling and should only be cleaned with neutral pH detergents. Because it is soft, Donnybrook Stone should never be cleaned at extremely high pressures and then only if the grout is in good condition.

Professional regular maintenance will be required to maintain the honed or polished appearance of Donnybrook Stone. Donnybrook Stone looks best with a honed or low/medium sheen appearance however some people insist on a high shine finish.

  • Pros
  • Durable
  • Easy to clean
  • It is less expensive than marble and granite
  • It is moisture-resistant
  • Cons
  • Feels cold and hard under-foot
  • Requires sealing
  • Reacts to acid

Sealing Donnybrook Stone Tiles

Donnybrook Stone can be highly porous - a tablespoon of water on a Donnybrook Stone surface will be absorbed in seconds, although porosity does vary from piece to piece. The porosity will also be affected by the finish - highly polished Donnybrook Stone is a little harder to penetrate than Donnybrook Stone with a honed(matte) finish.

To provide the best possible protection from oil and water-based stains; to maintain the look and slip resistance of your Donnybrook Stone and to prevent damaging moisture from being trapped within the stone, it is recommended to seal your Donnybrook Stone with a high quality, invisible, fully breathable impregnating sealer.

Donnybrook Stone's calcite composition makes it susceptible to acid attack from spilt food and drink. Its high porosity can also mean oil will permeate the surface and leave staining if it is not properly sealed with a penetrating/impregnating sealer.

Sealing your Donnybrook Stone will keep most stains suspended at the surface, sealing is the first important step towards protecting your Donnybrook Stone against stains.

Two main sealing options exist for Donnybrook Stone

  • Deep Penetrating Impregnating Sealer
  • (Transparent Finish/Colour Enhancing Finish)

  • Topical Sealer
  • (Gloss/Satin/Matte Finish)

deepshield moisture donnybrook

A deep penetrating impregnating sealer protects Donnybrook Stone and any grout from water and oil based stains by chemically reacting with the surface pores using nano-technology to create a breathable protective barrier. An impregnating sealer protects the Donnybrook Stone surface and grout from absorbing stains while also resulting in cleaning and maintenance becoming much easier. Australia's Deepshield® range of impregnating water based sealer's, offer long term benefits lasting for up to 10 years. A penetrating impregnating transparent sealer enters the pore structure of your stone and once cured will not change the the texture or appearance of the stone. A penetrating colour enhancing sealer is designed to enhance and enrich the natural look of stone surfaces.

Tile Cleaners® are the experts at applying all types of sealer and will ensure your Donnybrook Stone looks its absolute best. Tile Cleaners® experienced technicians can apply a topical sealer when especially required to create a high gloss, satin sheen or matte finish to your surfaces. Topical sealer is also helpful in situations where the old solvent based sealer can not be completely removed or when required to hide certain types of damage. Topical sealer's have a life expectancy of around 3 years.

Pre-Sealing Preparation

  • Any surface to be sealed should be clean and looking just as you want it prior to sealing - it may be impossible to remove stains once sealed without again having to strip the sealer. Acidic cleaners should not be used on Donnybrook Stone as they will cause damage.
  • Donnybrook Stone must have no other coating such as wax or a topical sealer before it's sealed, so any such coating must be removed before sealing.
  • Floor must be thoroughly dry before applying any sealer.

Protection from Acid Etching

It is very difficult to seal Donnybrook Stone against acid attack. Donnybrook Stone and other calcite based stone such as marble and travertine are prone to acid etching. Donnybrook Stone is immediately 'etched' (eaten / corroded) by any acidic material on contact - including lemon juice, cola, wine and champagne. For this reason the honed(matte) look is popular as it doesn't show etch marks as much as polished Donnybrook Stone. In any case, acidic substances should be cleaned as soon as possible.

Donnybrook Stone Floor Care & Maintenance

Donnybrook Stone can be difficult to maintain if a proper maintenance cycle is not put in place from the point of installation. As it is usually not polished, the problem of scratching is not as big an issue as it is with marble, however if proper barrier matting is not introduced even a honed surface will lose its attractiveness. The most important factor to consider with the maintenance of Donnybrook Stone is the possibility of staining.

Do's:
  • Clean spills right away
  • Seal Donnybrook Stone floors since it’s natural stone
  • Place a mat at each doorway
  • Use a Microfibre mop to clean floors
  • Clean floors regularly
Don'ts:
  • Never use bleach, ammonia or vinegar to clean Donnybrook Stone floors
  • Don't use cleaners that are acidic
  • Never use an abrasive cleaner or scouring pad.

Donnybrook Stone Tile and Grout Cleaning

Cleaning tile & grout takes a combination of specialised industrial equipment and heavy duty cleaning products. By using specially developed cleaning solutions & high pressure van mounted cleaning equipment we are able to clean your tiles & grout to the highest standards.

Donnybrook Stone Tile Sealing

Sealing your Donnybrook Stone will keep most stains suspended at the surface, creating a barrier that provides protection against chemical attack, deterioration and contamination. Sealing is the first important step towards protecting your surfaces against stains.

Donnybrook Stone Stripping

Stripping, scrubbing and cleaning to remove old sealant and its residue, restoring the original appearance of the floor. Our technicians are equipped with all necessary equipment and possess all skills and experience needed to provide your Donnybrook Stone tiles with an extensive floor stripping service. We can strip and reseal any hard surface flooring as well as wall tiles.

Donnybrook Stone Grinding

Grinding will smooth out imperfections and open a new layer upon which it is possible to build a high quality honed or polished finish. Grinding will remove deep scratches, stains and other contaminations from your Donnybrook Stone, resulting in a very smooth and even surface. Grinding will also remove any lippage, the term used for uneven tiles which can occur after a typical installation.

Donnybrook Stone Honing

Honed Donnybrook Stone surfaces have a more satin-feel, smooth and velvety to the touch often more suited to casual, comfortable environments than more formal polished surfaces. Honing your floors is a fantastic way to virtually eliminate taxing maintenance requirements while still having the wonderful characteristic of beautiful stone surfaces in your home or business.

Donnybrook Stone Polishing

Polishing is achieved by using very fine grade abrasive diamond discs until a reflective finish is achieved. These final grades reduce scratches which are not even visible to the human eye allowing the natural crystals on the surface to reflect light more effectively. Highly polished floors have much smaller pores to collect soil, dirt and grime, ensuring maintenance is made a lot easier.

Efflorescence Treatment

Efflorescence is the formation of salt deposits on or near the surface of the tile and grout. Tile Cleaners® technicians have a variety of equipment for the effective removal of efflorescence. We also carry all the required treatments, agitation tools as well as chemical solutions to safely and effectively removed efflorescence deposits internally and externally.

Minor Tile Repair

Do you have cracked tiles, chipped tiles, loose tiles or discoloured tiles in your walls, floors, stairs or around the swimming pool. Do you have spare tiles left over from installation? Tile Cleaners® have professional & experienced tilers in our team that can assist you with repairing your indoor & outdoor tiles and replacing the broken/damaged tiles.

Grout Colour Sealing

Tile Cleaners® technicians are able to re-colour badly stained grout or change the colour of existing and/or stained grout. Tile Cleaners® Grout Colour Sealing service is specifically designed and developed to rejuvenate your dirty old grout and make it look BRAND NEW once again!

Here at Tile Cleaners® we understand the importance of your familys safety.

To keep your Donnybrook Stone tiles and grout looking new, Tile Cleaners® recommend cleaning each week with a damp microfibre cloth and a mild detergent to remove any dirt or grime from the tiled surface. Any strong detergents (any strong acid or alkali) may affect the sealer, mild detergents and pH neutral substances are strongly recommended. Our best advice to protect your Donnybrook Stone tiles is to seal them with one of our highest quality sealers.

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

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 Donnybrook Stone 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 Donnybrook Stone floor and allowed to set. The newly sealed Donnybrook Stone will not only look new again, it will be protected and result in your Donnybrook Stone becoming easier to maintain.

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

Tile Cleaners® charge per square metre for each separate room. 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 Donnybrook Stone area separately. The simplest way to measure is by multiplying the width by the length. For example a room that is 3 metres long and 2 metres 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.
