Testimonials

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.

Anna Rodwell, Tingalpa, 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

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.

How to Clean Limestone Tile

Limestone has, despite these negative aspects, been a popular choice for floors for many years and despite its delicacy and porosity compared to say slate or marble - is deceptively tough and more hardwearing than many people would imagine. The key to maintaining limestone's rugged and timeless aesthetically pleasing appearance is careful cleaning and maintenance and above all - protecting the surface.

What is Limestone

Limestone is a sedimentary rock which is formed at the bottom of the ocean. It consists wholly or mainly of calcium carbonate. In its pure state it is white but it may be coloured by other materials. This calcite is sourced primarily from the shells and bones of marine organisms. The sediment that builds up preserves these organisms into fossils. Over millions of years the heat and pressure cause a chemical reaction which turns this sediment into limestone.

Types of Limestone Tiles

Many older buildings have durable limestone flooring. This is the chalky porous type typical of most French and Spanish limestone. Etched by acids, including soft drinks. Absorbs oils and other liquids and is more easily stained than marble. Composed of Calcite and some Magnesium. Common colors are black, gray, white, yellow and brown. Has a smooth granular surface. Varies in hardness. Should be sealed with a penetrating sealer to prevent staining and reduce soiling. Should only be cleaned with neutral pH detergents. Because it is soft, it should never be cleaned at pressures above 800 PSI and then only if the grout is in good condition.

Before cleaning your Limestone tiles, you need to remove all grit and surface dirt using a canister vacuum cleaner. Grit is the primary abrasive that breaks down the sealer on natural tiles. When the sealer breaks down, its protective quality is compromised, allowing stains and marks to occur more quickly. Daily floor cleaning should include using an untreated dust mop as well as mats to trap dirt at entryways.

All limestone is highly porous - a tablespoon of water on a limestone surface will be absorbed in seconds, although it does vary in porosity from piece to piece. Porosity is also affected by its finish - highly polished limestone is a little harder to penetrate than limestone with a honed (matt) finish.

Frequently Asked Questions


You will know it's time to have your limestone floors professionally restored once they begin to appear dull or "matte" even after you have given them an efficient regular clean. If you notice that your limestone tiles are staining easily, it's a good indication that your previous sealer is wearing off and your limestone 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 limestone 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 limestone tiles back to their best possible condition. Tile Cleaners® prides itself on specifically catering for each tile variety.

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 limestone 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 limestone tiles and grout looking new, Tile Cleaners ® recommend cleaning each week with a damp microfiber 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 limestone tiles is to seal them with one of our highest quality sealers. This is the best protection you limestone 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 it back to its best possible condition. This also depends on wether the limestone tiles have been sealed previously or not. Some stains might penetrate the natural stone and settle in below the surface and can be hard to clean out. It is important to have us strip, clean and seal your limestone floor so in the future nothing will be able to stain your limestone 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 room separately. They way to measure is the width * length. For example a room that is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide is 3 * 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 up off the floor so it is ready for us to clean when we arrive.

It depends on the type of sealer used and the amount of foot traffic the limestone 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 limestone 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.

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

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