Testimonials

I just got new tiles laid in my house that were very expensive. I needed to get them sealed but couldn't afford to pay much for it. On the other hand I didn't want to go for a company offering cheap and unreliably services. My boss recommended Tile Cleaners, saying that the company's prices were reasonable and that they offered quality service when he used them. I contacted them and ended up doing a booking with them. It is very pleasant to know that there are companies out there who actually care about providing very high quality services for affordable prices. I gave your contacts to my sister. Thank you for the job you did.

I have several different freshly laid tiles in my new house. All the pathways have stone tiles and there is 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. The Tile Cleaners team were very patient with me, explaining how they were going to apply the sealer on the different type of tiles, what sealer they would using, how long its would last for and 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.

Monica Petrovski, West Beach, SA

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 another 10 years. Amazing! Thank you guys! My floor looks gorgeous.

Sealed Slate Tiles

Stone, Tile and Grout Cleaning & Sealing

All porous natural and man made tiles should be sealed. Sealing your tiles 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. For non-porous tiles you should usually only need to seal the grout lines with our specialised impregnating penetrating sealer.

Tile Cleaners® is Australia's leading tile care specialist. We are your specialist service provider for all tile & grout cleaning, tile sealing, tile stripping & sealing, tile regrouting, grout colour sealing, and minor tile repairs. If you need advice on cleaning & sealing your old or brand new floors or need a professional to do it for you, then you have come to the right place.

Sealing your tiles and/or grout helps prevent & reduce staining by providing a barrier against stain carrying substances. 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 such as concrete and ceramic tiles that helps prevent staining from water and/or oil based materials as well as help to achieve better results when cleaning your tiles.

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?

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.

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.

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 which sits on top of(coats) the tile.

 Travertine Tile Tuscany Tumbled Sealer

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.

 Limestone Tile Sealed Old English

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.

 Limestone Tile Sealing Old English

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.

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.

Sealed Slate Tiles

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.

How often does the sealer need to be applied?

Some topical 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.

Pre-sealed floors

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.

Sealer finish options

Impregnating Sealers are available in a transparent matte finish with no shine, or a colour enhancing finish which can darken the surface and highlight the character and beauty of the tile as well as provide a low sheen, designed to be used when a visible seal is required. It leaves visible highlight sheen without altering the surface characteristics.

Topical Sealers are available in a silky smooth Satin finish, a Glossy/Shiny finish or a Matte finish with no shine.

Types of Tiles that can be sealed

Not all tiles can be sealed or require sealing. Some do, some don't. This depends mainly on the porosity of the surface. Porous surfaces require sealing, while glazed or nano-polished surfaces generally do not require sealing.

In the case of most glazed ceramic tiles, sealing is not required due to the vitrified glazing of the surface. But the grout lines certainly should be protected with a quality impregnating grout sealer.

Porcelain tiles vary greatly in quality and type. Porous porcelain tiles along with their grout lines should always be sealed but only few types of sealers can be applied to your porcelain, so picking the right sealer and knowing how to apply it is critical. Deepshield™ Gold ultra premium impregnating sealer based on the latest fluoro-bond technology is specially designed to penetrate denser materials such as porcelain, ceramic, granite and marble as well as all other stone types, providing the best possible protection against water and oil based stains for up to 15 years dependent on surface usage and weather.

Unglazed and Profiled

Some of these tiles will benefit from sealing depending on how porous the tile is. As in all situations these tiles will need to be tested for sealing. The main benefit of sealing these tiles is the ease of cleaning after sealing. They will require only a minimum amount of maintenance once sealed although some outdoor tiles may stain from substances such as leaves, soil, rust and other inorganic materials if not cleaned immediately.

Certain tiles are commonly known as vitrified and come under the porcelain tile banner. These tiles are often used in commercial areas including outdoor and toilet areas. They are noted for their non-slip properties but can be very hard to clean and maintain. Most of these tiles cannot be sealed effectively for long term positive results unless a deep penetrating sealer specifically designed for these surfaces is used.

Polished Porcelain

The process of polishing opens up the tiny clay pockets of the tile which will accept stains and therefore need to be treated with a special sealer. The sealer impregnates and lines the small cavities, prohibiting the penetration of stains.

Our Penetrating Impregnating sealers will not alter the appearance of polished porcelain tiles since they are designed to only fill the micro pores and not coat the tile, nor should they affect the slip resistance of the tile.

Some porcelain tiles such as nano-porcelain come pre-sealed from the factory. This has presented problems in the field as the sealers do not seem to have consistent characteristics. These tiles can be sealed with quality products.

Stone Tiles

All stone tiles 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 once the tiles have been laid or once construction is complete.

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

Tile Cleaners® provide excellent value for money tile care and maintenance services. We only use quality products which will enhance and protect your tiles.

Sealing Grout Lines

Not all tiles require sealing, but even for those 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.

The extra layer of protection from sealing the grout can be applied to grout in kitchens, shops, swimming pool surrounds & showrooms and most other areas in your home or business.

We provide professional grout sealing services for all types of grout. We cover all suburbs within 100km from the CBD

Stripping and Sealing

While sealing your tiles 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 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 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 Appearance of the tiles after Sealing

The best time to seal tiles and/or grout lines is immediately after installation, but if not done initially it is still extremely beneficial to seal them immediately once professional cleaned by Tile Cleaners® technicians. After any sealing, we provide each customer with a simple tile maintenance program and recommend a cleaning product to suit your requirements. Sealing of grout and porous tiles(such as terracotta, marble, porous porcelain, granite, travertine, limestone and sandstone etc) is necessary to protect them from premature decay and contamination. Even very old tiles and grout can be cleaned and resealed to give them back a new lease on life! Sealing your porous tiles and grout provides you with time to deal with spills. An unsealed floor can stain immediately, whereas a sealed floor is stain resistant with a reaction time of up to 4-5 hours. Tile Cleaners® are your specialist service provider for tile sealing, stone sealing, grout sealing and tile, stone and grout sealing as well as stone restoration and minor tile repairs. Our services cover all suburbs within 60 minutes of the CBD.

Frequently Asked Questions


If your tile is ceramic or porcelain, it probably won't need to be sealed. There are some exceptions to this, so check with your manufacturer to be sure. If your tile is stone (slate, marble, granite, travertine, etc.) then it will need to be sealed. Stone is naturally porous and will absorb spills and stain fairly easily.

Most 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 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 tiles 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 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 your 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 surfaces 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 surfaces are staining easily, it's a good indication that your previous sealer is wearing off and your 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 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 floors 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 floors to be their cleanest and looking their 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 surfaces once we are finished with the process.

Stripping and sealing is simply the process of stripping the coating off the floor before resealing it. Flooring can look dull and lifeless over time making it 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 floor 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 floor and allowed to set. The newly sealed floor will not only look new again, it will be protected and result in your floors becoming easier to maintain.

It depends on the type of sealer used and the amount of foot traffic the 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 you may experience a shorter lifetime. Sealing your surfaces may also depend on the surfaces 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.

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.
