Testimonials

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.

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.

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.

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


When your limestone tiles start to exhibit a dull or matte appearance even after regular cleaning, it is a clear sign that they are due for professional restoration. This loss of luster can occur over time as the protective sealant wears off. Additionally, if you notice that your limestone tiles are becoming more susceptible to staining, it indicates that the previous sealer has deteriorated and immediate resealing is necessary to prevent permanent stains. By addressing these signs promptly, you can restore the natural beauty of your limestone floors and protect them from further damage.

Tile Cleaning places great importance on the safety of your family throughout the cleaning process and guarantees the use of non-toxic finishing agents. Our commitment to safety is rooted in protecting your loved ones by avoiding any potentially harmful substances or ingredients. When selecting cleaning products, Tile Cleaning exercises utmost care to exclude any ingredients that could pose health risks. This approach not only helps preserve the condition of your stone tiles but also exemplifies our dedication to prioritizing the overall health and safety of your household.

To maintain the appearance and keep your limestone tiles looking new, Tile Cleaning recommends a regular cleaning routine. Clean the tiles each week using a damp microfiber cloth and a mild detergent to remove dirt and grime from the surface. It is important to avoid using strong detergents containing acids or alkalis, as they can potentially damage the sealer. Instead, opt for mild detergents and pH-neutral substances for safe and effective cleaning. In addition to regular cleaning, the best protection for your limestone tiles is to have them sealed with one of Tile Cleaning highest quality sealers. Sealing provides an extra layer of protection against staining and helps preserve the beauty of your limestone tiles for longer.

If the stain on your limestone floor is relatively new and has not deeply set in, there is a good chance that Tile Cleaning will be able to remove it. However, it is important to note that complete removal of the stain cannot be guaranteed. The aim is to clean the stained area and restore it to the best possible condition. The success of stain removal also depends on whether the limestone tiles have been previously sealed or not. Some stains may have penetrated the natural stone and settled below the surface, making them more challenging to clean. To prevent future staining, it is recommended to have Tile Cleaning perform a thorough process of stripping, cleaning, and sealing your limestone floor. This comprehensive approach ensures that your limestone floors are protected from future stains and can be maintained in optimal condition.

Tile Cleaning follows a pricing structure that is based on per square meter for each separate room when it comes to cleaning limestone tiles. You can find a price list on the Tile Cleaning website, which you can review for your reference. Prior to commencing the work, Tile Cleaning will measure each room individually, discuss the scope of the work to be carried out, and confirm all costs with you. This ensures transparency and allows you to have a clear understanding of the pricing involved before any cleaning work begins.

To measure the size of a limestone area, it is recommended to measure each room separately. Begin by measuring the width and length of the room. Multiply the width by the length to calculate the total square meterage. For example, if a room is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide, the calculation would be 3 meters * 2 meters = 6 square meters in total. By measuring each room individually and using the width * length method, you can accurately determine the size of the limestone area you wish to assess or have cleaned.

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 your limestone floors for cleaning, it is recommended to move all furniture and items off the floor. This allows the cleaning process to be carried out efficiently and effectively. By removing furniture and items from the limestone floor, you create a clear space for the cleaning team to work on, ensuring that the entire surface can be properly cleaned. This preparation step helps to facilitate the cleaning process and ensures that your limestone floors receive the attention they need.

The frequency of sealing limestone floors depends on factors such as the type of sealer used and the level of foot traffic they experience. Australia's Deepshield™ range of deep impregnating water-based sealers, including Deepshield™ Gold with a potential lifespan of up to 15 years, offers long-term benefits. On the other hand, topical sealers typically last around 3 years. However, if your limestone floors endure high foot traffic or are exposed to severe weather conditions (in the case of outdoor tiles), the lifespan of the sealer may be shorter. The condition of the tiles is also a factor to consider. Once you notice patchy areas and easy staining, it is an indication that resealing is necessary. For further assistance and inquiries, feel free to contact us, and our team will be happy to assist you.

When Tile Cleaning arrive to reseal your limestone floors, you can expect a professional team that will guide you through the entire process, ensuring transparency and clarity. The process begins with the removal of any previous sealer, if applied, followed by a thorough cleaning and neutralization of the limestone to eliminate dust, residue, and any other substances that could affect the effectiveness of the new sealer. Once the limestone floor is dry, a new sealer will be carefully applied and allowed to set. This resealing process will not only rejuvenate the appearance of your limestone floor, making it look new again, but it will also provide protection and make maintenance easier in the long run. Rest assured that Tile Cleaning follows a systematic approach to deliver quality results and ensure your satisfaction.

The best time to seal your limestone floors is right after installation to provide immediate protection against accidental staining or damage. As for determining if your limestone floors currently require sealing, keep an eye out for patchy areas on the floor where the sealant may have worn off. Additionally, if you notice that your limestone tiles are becoming more susceptible to staining, it indicates that the existing sealer has deteriorated and resealing is necessary to prevent permanent stains. By monitoring the condition of your limestone floors and being attentive to any changes in their appearance and stain resistance, you can determine when it is the right time to seal them.
