Testimonials

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.

Paul Gold, Gold Coast, QLD

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

I have several different freshly laid tiles in my new house. All pathways have stone tiles and there are marble tiles in the bathrooms and porcelain in the kitchen. I needed to get them sealed and was not sure if it was possible to seal them all. I contacted Tile Cleaners because my dad recommended them. He had a similar situation in his house and was very happy with the job Tile Cleaners had done. I was very worried about my tiles since they were brand new and very expensive. Tile Cleaners team were very patient with me, explaining how they were going to apply the sealer on different types of tiles, what sealer they would use, how long it would last for and advised me on how to take care of my tiles. I called Tile Cleaners a few times confirming details, asking for prices, making sure they could to the job during the weekend etc. The guys were amazingly patient and helpful. When I had gathered all the information I wanted, I was ready to go ahead. The work done by Tile Cleaners actually took less time than what it took me looking for information about it. Sorry for the pain I caused, and again thank you.

Sealing Natural Stone

We provide specialised sealing solutions for all types of stone tiles

Save yourself time and money by letting our team of professionals restore your floors to their best possible condition

Sealing Your Floors

Tile Cleaners® is Australia's leading stone sealing specialist. Our services cover all suburbs within 100km drive from the CBD . We are your specialist service provider for stone sealing, stone restoration, and minor stone repairs. If you need advice on cleaning & sealing your old or brand new stone surfaces or need a professional to do it for you, then you have come to the right place.

All porous natural and man made tiles should be sealed. Sealing your stone will help prevent & reduce staining by keeping most stains suspended at the surface. Sealing provides protection against chemical attack, deterioration and contamination and also reduces the damage caused from the stain itself.

Tile Cleaners® technicians professionally clean & seal all natural stone:

  • Limestone
  • Slate
  • Marble
  • Sandstone
  • Granite
  • Travertine
  • Bluestone
  • Terracotta
Polished Travertine Stone Tile Sample

Natural stone is amongst the most durable materials for floor and wall coverings, also boasting some of the lowest abrasion values. For non-porous tiles you should usually only need to seal the grout lines with our specialised long-life impregnating penetrating sealer.

All natural stone is porous to different degrees. To protect your stone an impregnating sealer should be applied which is similar to a topical sealer but doesn't create a film on top of the stone, instead it sits within the stones pores.

The idea of using sealers on stone is to prevent water and oil from penetrating the porous structure of the the stone, which eventually leads to stains, cracks, weathering, and deterioration. Sealing your tiles and/or grout helps prevent & reduce staining by providing a barrier against stain carrying substances.

Finally, to dispel what you might have read or heard about sealing artificial or man made stone tiles such as terracotta, these are in fact more porous than natural stone and will need frequent applications of stain inhibitors, sealers, resins and polishes.

We are your specialist service provider for tile sealing, stone sealing and grout sealing covering all suburbs within 100km drive from the CBD

Sealing is the first important step towards protecting your investment against stains

What Exactly Is A Sealer?

A sealer is a liquid, or carrier containing a resin that is applied to porous natural stone or porous man made surfaces that helps prevent staining from water and/or oil based materials as well as help to achieve better results when cleaning your tiles

You can easily test how porous your surfaces are by applying a drop of water to the surface and watching how it is absorbed. You can then see how any type of water based stain can be absorbed by the surface.

Why should I have my stone tiles sealed?

A sealer reduces the natural absorbency of a stone. A natural stone surface once prepared and sealed correctly can add a great deal of style to your property and give it a real feature relative to your desired look whether that is modern and contemporary or more traditional.

Sealing your tiles and/or grout helps prevent & reduce staining. It provides a barrier for a short time to remove the staining product and helps reduce the damage caused from the stain itself. Staining can still occur if the staining product is not removed from the tile.

What type of sealer should I use on my stone tile?

There are so many sealers on the market today and it can be confusing to know which sealer is the correct choice for your tile. Which one will work, which one won't, which sealer suits your situation and how they differ?

Types Of Sealers we use

Tile Cleaners® use two main types of sealer to protect your surfaces. One sealer is known as an Impregnating Sealer (Penetrating Sealer) which is absorbed into the tile protecting it from within and the other is known as a Topical Sealer (film forming) which sits on top of the tile.

Tile Cleaners® are proud to be accredited applicators of Deepshield™ quality deep impregnating water based sealers which prolong the life of your surfaces by taking full advantage of recent advancements in nano-technology and fluoro-bond technology. Australian made Deepshield™ forms a bond with your surfaces that is stronger than any conventional mechanical or hydrogen bonding film forming sealers.

deepshield generic2

Tile Cleaners® technicians are experts at applying all types of sealer and will ensure your surfaces look their absolute best. Tile Cleaners® can apply a topical sealer when especially required to create either a high gloss, satin sheen or matte finish to your surfaces. Topical sealers can be helpful in situations where the old solvent based sealer can't be completely removed or when required to hide certain types of damage. Topical sealers typically have a life expectancy of around 3 years while impregnating sealers such as the Deepshield™ range of impregnating water based sealer's offer long term benefits lasting for up to 10 years while Deepshield™ Gold, based on the latest fluoro-bond technology will last for up to 15 years.

Deep Penetrating Impregnating Sealer

(Transparent Finish/Colour Enhancing Finish)

Impregnating sealers are safe for stone and highly recommended. These sealers sit below the surface of your tile and deposit solid particles into the pores of your stone coating the individual minerals below.

Even when the tile has been sealed before with an impregnating sealer there is no need to strip the old sealer (as with Topical Sealer) before reapplying, most aren't affected by UV light, and high quality penetrating sealers do not require frequent applications.

Impregnating sealers do not alter the slip resistant properties of the tile, meaning that if the tile is not a slippery tile then it will stay non-slip, making it the recommended sealer for most cases where slipping may be a risk.

Impregnating sealers used by Tile Cleaners® usually have a lifetime of up to 10 years. In areas where salt water is near, the lifetime of our sealer may be reduced to 8 years instead because salt can reduce the lifetime of the product.

How Do Impregnating Sealers Work?

In an impregnating sealer the "active component" is either a natural or a synthetic resin. This resin is melted into a liquid solution with a mineral solvent or with water.

Impregnating Sealer properties

  • Penetrates into the stone and attaches its protection to the cell walls within the pore structure. This allows for total vapour transmission through the stone.
  • Does not change the colour or sheen of the stone.
  • Does not need to be re-applied after each cleaning.
  • Because the sealer does not remain on the surface, the sealer coating will not scratch or scuff. Without a surface coating to wear off, the sealer does not require re-application as frequently as topical sealers.
  • Outdoor Tarracotta Tile After Sealing

What Sets Impregnating Sealers Apart?

Solvent or water based sealer?

A solvent based sealer absorbs deep into the stone but emits a very strong odour and is trickier to apply. There have been a few reports of solvent based sealers reacting negatively to certain stones that have a factory applied resin. It's always safest to test a scrap or small inconspicuous area first. Solvent carried impregnators are excellent water repellents but do not usually repel oil stains.

A water based sealer is easier to apply and safer to handle as well as safer for the environment. Water carried impregnators are excellent oil repellents as well as excellent water repellents.

Does it repel water, repel oil, or resist oil?

Not all sealers work the same. Some sealers just repel water. These are called Hydrophobic. A hydrophobic type sealer repels water based liquids such as coffee, soft drink and tea.

Sealers that repel oil are called Oilophobic an oilophobic type sealer repels oil based liquids such as cooking oil and grease AS WELL AS water based liquids.

An oilophobic sealer will always repel BOTH oil and water based chemicals whereas a hydrophobic sealer doesn't always repel oil based chemicals.

Our impregnating water based sealers are Oilophobic, meaning that they repel both water and oil based chemicals.

Topical Sealer

(Gloss/Satin/Matte Finish)

Sometimes a Topical Sealer is referred to as a "coating" because this is exactly what it does, it coats the surface of your stone with a protective barrier. It's essentially a layer or thin film sitting on top of your stone.

Topical sealers are either removable (through stripping) or permanent. Removable coatings are designed to easily be stripped from the surface of stone and are usually water based. Most strippable coatings are NOT designed for natural stone, however nowadays there are high quality water based sealers also available for stone.

Permanent coatings are very difficult to remove and are usually NOT designed for stone either. It's important to ask an expert to determine which topical sealer is safe to use on your particular surface.

deepshield moisture

What will a topical sealer do?

It will help prevent your tile from scuffing, scratching and staining. The sealer will scuff and scratch instead. The downfall is since the sealer is softer than your stone it can scuff and scratch fairly easily, which means they are short lived and frequent reapplication is necessary.

Before reapplying, old topical sealer needs to be removed and frequent stripping can cause damage to your tile or stone. If you don't remove the sealer before applying a new coat, eventually these coatings will build up and cause your tile to have an unnatural wavy or plastic look. This is called “stripping” the sealer.

Bottom of the barrel topical sealers can cause your tile to turn a yellowish colour, especially when exposed to UV light. They can change the appearance of your tile and may react adversely to heat and acids.

Topical sealers are usually easy to apply and much less expensive than impregnating sealers. Some add additional shine to your tile and some even add slip resistant properties. But the need to frequently strip and reapply, or buff should be taken into consideration as well as the location of your tile.

Tile Cleaners® technicians apply the highest quality water based sealers providing the highest level of protection.

Pre-sealed stone

In most cases we will be able to chemically remove your existing floor finish(sealer) and treat any staining and marks that will have occurred due to the ineffectiveness of your floor seal. When we are satisfied that we have achieved the best results possible, preferably by returning the floor to its natural state, then we allow a sufficient drying time before applying the needed number of coats of our specialist floor tile seal depending on the type of the floor.

Types of Stone that can be sealed

All stone should be treated carefully during the installation process and should be sealed as they can easily be stained by a range of substances. The sealing can be completed after the stone have been laid or when construction is complete.

Limestone, Sandstone, Slate and pavers are common products which require maintenance. This maybe a top up seal or it may require all the existing sealer to be stripped, bringing back the natural beauty of the stone, then re sealed.

Tile Cleaners® provide their customers with excellent value for money stone care and maintenance services. We only use quality products which will enhance and protect your quality stone.

How often does the sealer on stone need to be applied?

Some stone sealers need to be applied every year, some every 3- 5 years, and penetrating sealers may last up to 15 years or even longer. This will depend on the type of resin used and on the type of use the tiles are intended for. The resin used is the most important factor because this resin is left behind to do the work.

Deepshield® Penetrating Sealers provide better non-slip properties and offers superior resistance against blemishes. Deepshield® GOLD has an expected lifetime of up to 15 years.

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

Sealing Grout Lines

Not all stone requires sealing, but even for those stone tiles than don't require sealing you can and should always seal the grout lines.

Grout Sealers prevent spills from penetrating into the porous grout. Our impregnating penetrating water based grout sealer repels water and oil based liquids, prevents stains caused by food and beverages and protects the grout from dirt and impurities.

After cleaning your grout it is recommended to apply an impregnating water based sealer specifically designed for grout that creates resistance to spills and stains. This also results in your grout becoming much easier clean in the future and makes your grout look cleaner for longer. There are different sealers for grout with varying qualities and prices. Check our website for advice on sealing your type of tile & grout or call us and our knowledgeable customer service can help you with all your enquiries.

Stripping and Sealing

While sealing your stone and grout means that they will be protected, is it important to keep in mind that the previously applied sealer may need to be removed and reapplied in future depending on the quality of the sealer applied to your stone and the amount of traffic. This process is called tile stripping and sealing, which involves stripping, scrubbing and cleaning to remove old sealant and its residue and restoring the original appearance of the tiles. We can strip and reseal any hard surface flooring as well as wall tiles.

No matter where your stone tiles are, Tile Cleaners® technicians will strip, clean and professionally reseal them for you, in your kitchen, shower, bathroom, around the swimming pool, your backyard, outdoors or any hard to reach indoor areas.

Grout Recolouring

A variety of colours are available and an added advantage of grout recolouring is that the product we use also doubles as the highest quality sealer available allowing much easier cleaning of the grout in the future.

Maintaining the Appearance of Stone Tiles after Sealing

The best time to seal stone and/or grout lines is immediately after installation, but if not done initially it is still extremely beneficial to seal stone surfaces immediately once they have been professional cleaned by Tile Cleaners® technicians.

After any sealing, we provide each customer with a simple stone maintenance program and recommend a cleaning product to suit your requirements.

Sealing of grout and porous stone (such as marble, granite, travertine, limestone, sandstone, slate etc.) is necessary to protect them from premature decay and contamination. Even very old stone tiles and grout can be cleaned and resealed to give them back a new lease on life!

Sealing your porous stone and grout provides you with time to deal with spills. Unsealed stone can stain immediately, whereas a sealed stone floor is stain resistant with a reaction time of up to 4-5 hours.

Frequently Asked Questions


If your stone is natural stone (slate, marble, granite, travertine, sandstone etc.) then it will need to be sealed. Stone is naturally porous and will absorb spills and stain easily.

Most stone surfaces are subject to deterioration and degradation of appearance through traffic, UV rays, moisture, rain, chemicals, and other impurities such as oil, gas, grease, acids and salt. This can easily result in common problems such as cracking, pitting, scaling, spalling, delamination, dusting, discolouration, efflorescence, salt damage, etc. Sealing stone offers excellent maintenance benefits when quality products are used such as Australia's Deepshield™ deep impregnating range of sealers.
Sealing your tiles & grout can help:
  • Prevent unsightly stains
  • Prevent discolouration
  • Keep your tiled floors looking better for longer

This depends on the type of sealer you decide to seal your stone with. Topical sealers usually have a lifetime of around 3 years, while impregnating sealers have a lifetime of up to 15 years. On vertical surfaces impregnating sealers could last a lifetime, however, on heavy walkway areas or heavily used areas such as shower recesses, the areas should be checked more often and re-sealed if necessary. You can test how porous your surfaces are by applying a drop of water to the surface and watching how it is absorbed. You can then see how any type of water based stain can be absorbed by the stone surface.

Yes you can and it is recommended to seal your grout lines especially if they are a light colour, this will save you the likely cost of having to regrout your tiles only a few years after installation.

Whenever needed, and that depends on the type and quality of sealer used and the lifetime of the sealer.

Most sealers dry fairly quickly and are usually touch-dry after 4 hours. This is true of both penetrating and topical sealers. Penetrating sealers usually fully cure in 24 hours with topical sealers generally taking up to 48 hours to fully dry.

No, topical sealers create a membrane, film, or barrier that prevents the penetrating sealers from absorbing into the surface. Applying a penetrating sealer to a surface, requires any topical sealer to be removed prior to application.

The best way to keep stone surfaces in good condition is to use a ph neutral cleaner followed by clean water for spills, otherwise a microfibre mop will get rid of dust.

You will know it's time to have your stone stripped, cleaned and sealed once it begins to appear dull or "matte" even after you have given it an efficient regular clean. If you notice that your surfaces are staining easily, it's a good indication that your previous sealer is wearing off and your stone 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 stone surfaces.

Tile Cleaners® prefer to use high quality non-solvent based stripping and sealing products. These products are not messy and won't damage your stone 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 floors, but your families health too. Materials and agents that present potential health hazards are not in our product portfolio and never have been.

If you want your stone to be its cleanest and looking its very best you need to have a professional remove as much of the old sealer as possible. Once this is done the cleaning process will be carried out and the new sealer applied. You will have the freshest and cleanest possible stone surfaces once we are finished with the process.

Stripping and sealing is simply the process of stripping the coating off the stone before resealing it. Stone surfaces can appear dull and lifeless over time making them look older and really bringing down the feel any area. By stripping and resealing, you can restore the original appearance of your surfaces 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 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 stone and allowed to set. The newly sealed stone will not only look new again, it will be protected and result in your surfaces becoming easier to maintain.

It depends on the type of sealer used and the amount of foot traffic the stone is 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 you may experience a shorter lifetime. Sealing your stone can also depend on the surfaces condition. Once stone starts showing patchy areas and is staining easily then you should have it resealed. Give us a call and we can assist you with all your enquiries.

Many types of flooring can damage fairly easily, any oily or harsh spills can damage the surface and penetrate the pores leaving a permanent stain, unreachable by domestic cleaning methods. We strongly recommend sealing your surfaces to maintain their fresh look and feel, to protect against permanent staining and to prevent any future accidental damage. Your surfaces will look their very best for longer and will be easier and more convenient to maintain.

Yes, our stone tile cleaning services are safe! At Tile Cleaners ® we use only the best water based products alongside our state of the art cleaning machinery to provide the best cleaning solutions at no compromise to your stone tiles condition. Stone based tiles are usually more porous and require a lot more attention than regular man made tiles, that's why its extremely important to use the right products and equipment necessary for bringing your stone tiles back to their best possible condition. Tile Cleaners ® prides itself for catering for each tile type.

Here at Tile Cleaners ® we understand the importance of your family's safety. This is why Tile Cleaners ® only use non-toxic finishing agents as we not only want to protect your stone tiles, but your families' health too. Materials and agents that can be of health hazard are not in our product portfolio and have never been.

To keep your 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 stone tiles is to seal them with one of our highest quality sealers such as Australian made Deepshield® quality impregnating water based sealer. This is the best protection you stone tiles can have against staining.

If the stain is new and has not set in well we will probably be able to remove it, however we cannot guarantee that we will remove it completely; we can only guarantee cleaning to its best possible condition. This can also depend on whether the stone tiles have been sealed previously or not. Some stains may penetrate the natural stone and settle in below the surface and can be very difficult to remove completely. It is important to have us strip, clean and seal your stone floor so in the future nothing will be able to stain your stone floors.

Tile Cleaners® charge per square meter 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 concreted 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.

Nothing is maintenance free! Sealing makes your surface easier to clean and harder to stain. Contaminants can therefore sit on the surface longer giving you more time to clean up before any staining occurs. On some unsealed stone staining will occur immediately. Think of your stone sealing product as a bottle of time. No stone sealing product will make a porous surface stain-proof, but will make it highly stain resistant. Using the correct stone cleaning products also makes a difference.

Natural stone products contain dirt, residues, dust and grime in their pores. These pores need to be cleaned well before any sealant is applied to the surface of the stone. If dirt etc. is trapped under the stone sealer sooner or later it will cause a milky white residue between the top of the stone and the underside of the sealer. The only way to remove this is to remove the stone sealer and clean.

Natural surfaces are subject to deterioration and degradation of appearance through traffic, UV rays, moisture, rain, chemicals, and other impurities such as oil, gas, grease, acids and salt. This can easily result in common problems such as cracking, pitting, scaling, spalling, delamination, dusting, discolouration, efflorescence, salt damage, etc. Sealing offers excellent maintenance benefits when quality products are used such as Australia's Deepshield™ deep impregnating sealers. Sealing a stone surface will provide effective protection against permanent damage but spills should still be cleaned up as quickly as possible.

It depends on the type of sealer used and the amount of foot traffic the surface is 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 floors can also depend on the surfaces condition. Once they start showing patchy areas and begin staining easily then you should have them resealed. A natural stone floor can keep its natural finish for a lifetime if looked after properly. To ensure that this is true make sure you use the correct products for your natural stone floor. Give us a call and we can assist you with all your enquiries.

There is a simple test that can be performed in order for you to check if your stone, concrete or tiled floor has been sealed correctly called the water test. Pour a small amount of water onto the surface and level out with your finger and observe. If the water is absorbed then your surface is in need of sealing as soon as possible, however if the water turns into small beads and is repelled then your surface has been sealed.
