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

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.

Amanda Burtender, Brighton East, VIC

I was about to sell my business and wanted to clean and reseal my vinyl floors to improve the looks of them before having people over for inspection of the property. I did a booking with another company but was horrified when I realized that my floor was back to its horrible look in less than two weeks. I carefully looked up other cleaning companies, scared that I would chose the wrong cleaning company. A friend of mine recommended Tile Cleaners, but after what happened to my floor last time I got it cleaned I was really skeptic, but gave it a go. All I can say is thank you guys so much for a quick response and a good job. I sold the office and left your contact details with the new owner for future cleaning.

Granite is a hard wearing beautiful tile which is very popular laid in kitchens and bathrooms. Granite tile makes a stunning floor, wall covering or granite tile countertop. Granite is becoming a preferred material of choice for today's homes and offices, synthetic materials are simply no match for granite's natural beauty and classic elegance. Granite is available in a wide variety of colours and can be shaped into straight or curved patterns to match virtually any requirement including beautiful kitchens, vanities and bath areas.

The most popular granite tiles are available in three colours, absolute black (pure black stone, minus any other colours), Black Galaxy(black tiles, with gold specks) and Kashmir White(white tiles with specks of different colours). They add an element of elegance wherever they are placed and generally require much less maintenance than any other natural stone. Further, they can be used in many areas of the home(kitchen flooring and slabs, bathroom wall covering, patio, and so on) as well as an office (meeting room flooring/walls).

What is Granite?

Geelong traditional bathroom with black granite tiles on the floor Granite is molten lava that never rose above the surface of the earth. Granite is a very hard natural stone denser than marble. A geologist will tell you that it is an igneous or metamorphic rock that is highly saturated with silica. Silica when combined with oxygen makes the mineral quartz, and it has a rating of 7 on the Mohs scale, which determines a materials' hardness. Diamond has a rating of 10. Suffice it to say there are not too many things that will easily scratch granite.

Granite delivers breathtaking beauty unmatched by synthetic materials and a very high level of durability. Granite is used in many roles around the house, from flooring, stair treads and countertops to wall coverings and beautiful sinks and basins. Granite is a preferred material, due to its extremely high quality, it's easiness to clean and its ability to improve the value of your home.


Cleaning and Maintaining Granite Floor Tiles

Geelong granite tile cleaningCleaning tiles to make them look pretty in order to maintain the beauty of your homes can be a difficult task at times. It is practically for this reason that granite floor tiles, happen to be the best choice in comparison to any other types of floor tiles. Granite floor tiles are extremely durable and are also very easy to clean and maintain. They are especially convenient to be used for kitchens, as the kitchen is a place where the maximum amount of spilling of food happens, and there is constant cleaning of tiles going on because of this. However, with granite floor tiles, the cleaning of tiles no longer remains a nightmare as granite is extremely durable and is capable of handling any type of damaging activities that occur in the kitchen.

Granite floor tiles are resistant to stains, and grease. And thus, they do not get affected when tea, coffee, fizzy drinks etc. fall on these tiles. Also, granite floor tiles are resistant to oil and acid and alkali chemical spills as well. Sweeping and mopping the granite floor tiles daily with warm water does the job of the maintenance of these tiles. Granite floor tiles are extremely easy to clean. Also, cleaning granite tiles once every week with stone soap helps to maintain the shine of the granite floor tiles. Though granite is a hard and non porous stone that is unaffected by most chemicals it still requires high degrees of care while cleaning. While cleaning, the use of harsh chemicals should be avoided.

Sealing Granite Floors

Two main sealing options exist for granite tiles

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

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

deepshield granite

A deep penetrating impregnating sealer protects granite and grout from water and oil based stains by chemically reacting with the surface pores to create a breathable protective barrier. An impregnating sealer protects the granite surface and grout from absorbing stains while also resulting in cleaning and maintenance becoming much easier. Tile Cleaners® technicians are proud to be accredited applicators for Australia's Deepshield™ Gold, specifically engineered for denser surfaces such as granite, based on the latest fluoro-bond technology and lasting for up to 15 years. A penetrating impregnating transparent sealer enters the pores of your stone and, once cured will not change the look of the tile or stone.

Sealing your granite 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 investment against stains.

Geelong's Tile Cleaners® are the experts at applying all types of sealer and will ensure your granite 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.

Granite Tile Care Tips & Advice

  • Regularly dust the surface.
  • Keep floors swept or vaccuum regularly.
  • Only use the proper stone care products.
  • Use few drops of neutral cleaner, stone soap, or a mild liquid dish washing detergent or warm water.
  • Use a clean rag.
  • Use a coaster or gliders under chairs and other furniture.
  • All products containing acids should be avoided. The acid in high concentration etches the surface.
  • After using the soap solution, the surface should be rinsed properly.
  • In the kitchen extremely hot pans should not be kept over granite slabs since it quickly absorbs heat and distributes it out.
  • Take care and pride of your stone and it will give you many years of performance.
  • Consult a stone restoration contractor prior to installation. These are the professionals who will suggest the proper materials and methods of installation.

Granite Tile Sealing

All porous tiles should be sealed, sealing your tiles helps prevent & reduce staining. Sealing your granite 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.

Granite 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 granite tiles with an extensive surface stripping service. We can strip and reseal any hard surface flooring as well as wall tiles.

Granite 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 granite, 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.

Granite Honing

Honed granite 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.

Granite 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.

Frequently Asked Questions


If your granite floors start to appear dull or matte, even after regular cleaning, it is a clear sign that they require professional cleaning, stripping, and resealing. This indicates that the previous sealer has worn off, leaving the granite tiles vulnerable to staining and lacking their original luster. Additionally, if you notice that the granite tiles are staining easily, it further confirms the need for immediate resealing to prevent permanent staining. By addressing these signs promptly and engaging in the proper cleaning, stripping, and resealing processes, you can restore the beauty and protect the longevity of your granite floors.

Yes, the process of stripping and sealing granite tiles is considered safe. At Tile Cleaners®, we prioritize the safety of our clients and utilize high-quality water-based products along with advanced cleaning machinery to ensure the best cleaning results without compromising the integrity of your granite tiles. We understand that granite tiles require specific care due to their porous nature, and we use appropriate products and equipment to restore them to their optimal condition. Our team is experienced in working with various tile types, including granite, and we take pride in delivering safe and effective cleaning services tailored to each tile variety.

When it comes to the stripping process of your granite tiles, Tile Cleaning prioritizes the use of high-quality non-solvent-based stripping and sealing products. These products are specifically designed to minimize mess and ensure the protection of your granite tiles and other surfaces in your home. With our current non-solvent-based strippers and techniques, there is no significant risk of damaging your walls or skirting boards.

By choosing Tile Cleaning, you can have peace of mind knowing that the products used in the cleaning process are free from toxic ingredients.

The purpose of stripping granite surfaces is to ensure that they are thoroughly cleaned and to remove as much of the old sealer as possible. By doing so, you can achieve the cleanest and most visually appealing results for your granite floors. After the stripping process, the cleaning procedure is carried out, followed by the application of a new sealer. This comprehensive process guarantees that your granite floors will appear fresh, clean, and rejuvenated once our professional team completes the job.

The process of stripping and sealing granite tiles involves removing the existing coating or sealer from the surface of the granite floor before applying a new sealant. Over time, granite flooring can become dull and lose its luster, which can negatively impact the overall aesthetics of the home. By undergoing the stripping and sealing process, you have the opportunity to restore the beautiful and radiant appearance of your granite tiles, effectively rejuvenating the flooring. This approach can save you the expense of replacing the entire flooring and instead breathe new life into your existing granite tiles.

When our professional team arrives to reseal your granite floors, they will provide a comprehensive explanation of the job processes, ensuring complete clarity about the procedures involved. The process begins with stripping any previous sealer that may have been applied. Next, the granite floor is meticulously cleaned and neutralized to remove any dust, residue, or other elements that could impact the effectiveness of the new sealer. Once the surface is dry, a fresh sealer is applied and allowed to set. The outcome of this process is a rejuvenated granite floor that not only looks new but is also protected, making it easier to maintain in the long run.

The frequency of sealing granite floors varies based on the type of sealer used and the level of foot traffic they experience. The Deepshield® range of impregnating water-based sealers in Australia, particularly Deepshield Gold® designed for denser surfaces like granite, can offer long-lasting protection for up to 15 years. In contrast, topical sealers generally have a lifespan of around 3 years. However, the actual duration may be influenced by factors such as high foot traffic or severe weather conditions for outdoor tiles, which could necessitate more frequent resealing. Additionally, the condition of the tiles themselves is a significant factor. If you notice patchy areas or easy staining, it may indicate the need for resealing. Feel free to reach out to us for further assistance with any inquiries related to sealing your granite tiles.

Not sealing granite floors can lead to potential issues due to their porous nature. Without proper sealing, the granite tiles can absorb liquids and be prone to staining from oily or harsh spills. These stains can penetrate the pores of the granite and become permanent, making them difficult to remove with regular domestic cleaning methods. By sealing your granite tiles, you can preserve their natural appearance, protect them against permanent staining, and prevent future accidental damage. Sealed granite floors maintain their beauty for a longer period and are easier to maintain and clean. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to seal your granite tiles to ensure they look their best and remain in optimal condition.

The ideal moment to seal your granite floors is right after their installation, as this helps prevent any potential accidental staining or damage. If you observe patchy sealed areas on your granite tiles or notice that they are becoming more prone to staining, these are clear indications that your granite floors are in need of sealing. By addressing these signs promptly, you can ensure the long-term protection and beauty of your granite floors.

Efflorescence can be a common issue with porous tiles like granite. It occurs when water in the granite carries salts to the surface as it evaporates. This process leaves behind a whitish coating and can damage the finish of the granite. To prevent efflorescence, it is recommended to seal your granite tiles with a high-quality water-resistant sealer. Additionally, identifying and addressing the source of water penetration, such as a water pipe leak or damaged grout, is crucial. By sealing the tiles and resolving any water-related issues, you can minimize the occurrence of efflorescence and maintain the quality and appearance of your granite floors.

Yes, we can remove the built-up efflorescence on your granite tiles. Efflorescence is a result of salt buildup and can be effectively treated using specialized cleaning techniques and efflorescence removers. It is important to note that efflorescence is often caused by underlying issues such as water leakage behind the granite tiles or damaged grout lines. Therefore, while we can remove the efflorescence, it is crucial to address and resolve the root cause to prevent its recurrence. Our team is experienced in identifying and addressing these underlying issues to provide a comprehensive solution for efflorescence removal and prevention.

To maintain the appearance of your granite tiles and keep them looking new, it is recommended to clean them weekly using a mild detergent. This will help remove any dirt or grime that may have accumulated on the surface. It is important to avoid using strong detergents with high acidity or alkalinity, as they can potentially affect the sealer on the granite. Instead, opt for mild detergents and pH neutral substances, which are safe and effective for cleaning granite tiles. By regularly cleaning your granite tiles with the proper cleaning agents, you can preserve their natural beauty and extend their lifespan.

Tile Cleaning charges for stripping and sealing granite tiles based on a per square meter basis for each separate room. To provide accurate pricing, the team will measure each room individually and discuss the scope of work with you. You can find a detailed price list on the Tile Cleaning website for your reference. Rest assured that all costs will be confirmed with you before the work commences to ensure transparency and clarity.

To accurately measure the size of a granite area, it is recommended to measure each area individually. The most straightforward method is to multiply the width of the area by its length. For instance, if a room measures 3 meters in length and 2 meters in width, the total area would be calculated as 3 multiplied by 2, resulting in a total of 6 square meters. By measuring each granite area separately and calculating the total square meters, you can ensure precise measurements for accurate pricing and planning purposes.

Tile Cleaning provides assistance with moving furniture during the floor sealing process. Their team of dedicated technicians is available to help with the relocation of furniture items that can be reasonably managed by one person, such as those with wheels or lightweight furniture like tables and chairs. However, it is important to keep in mind that while Tile Cleaning takes precautions to protect your belongings, they cannot be held responsible for any damages that may occur during the furniture moving process. To ensure the safety of valuable or fragile items, it is recommended to either relocate them to a secure area or properly secure them before the technicians arrive. By taking these necessary precautions, you can help ensure the safety of your furniture and minimize the risk of potential damage while the floor sealing process is being carried out.

To prepare for the cleaning of your granite surfaces, it is recommended to move all furniture and items off the floor. This allows the cleaning team to have unobstructed access to the granite surfaces and ensures that the area is ready for their arrival. By clearing the floor of furniture and items, you can facilitate a smooth and efficient cleaning process for your granite surfaces.

Is granite a suitable choice for kitchen countertops? Granite is highly durable and resistant to scratching, cracking, and staining. It is also heat-resistant, making it an excellent option for kitchen countertops. With its ability to withstand daily kitchen activities, granite is a reliable and long-lasting choice for your kitchen countertop.

Unfortunately, our services specifically focus on granite floors and walls, and we do not offer restoration work for benchtops.

Granite, like any solid surface, can be damaged by extremely hard blows that can cause chips on its surface. However, it is possible to repair such chips by filling them with a mixture of granite dust and epoxy. Under normal everyday use, granite is unlikely to crack, but it may be susceptible to cracking during shipping and installation. It is worth noting that granite is one of the hardest stones in the world, and it can only be scratched by another piece of granite or a specialized granite tool.

Using a granite countertop as a cutting surface is not recommended. Granite is significantly harder than household knives and can quickly dull the blades. To protect your knives and maintain their sharpness, it is best to use a chopping board or cutting surface made of a softer material.

Granite has a low porosity compared to other natural stones, making it less prone to staining. However, some granite colors may still absorb a small amount of moisture if left for an extended period. To prevent the formation of darker patches on your granite, it is highly recommended to use a penetrating stone sealer. This sealer helps to further reduce the porosity of the granite and protect it from potential stains.
