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.

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.

I noticed that some of the tiles in my bathroom walls were loose and the grout was coming off. I am a very busy so kept on postponing calling someone to fix it. One day I got home and the loose tiles were lying broken on the floor. Can you imagine my frustration? I rang my brother in panic and he gave me Tile Cleaners' contact details. I rang them straight away. The guys told me I needed a tiler and professional regrouting work done so I thought it would take ages to fix my problem. However they organized the work very well. I had my tiles fixed on Friday night the same week and the entire bathroom regrouted on Saturday. Thank you some much for your quick help; it was such a relief.

Sandstone Restoration Experts

Of course, we deal with Sandstone from anywhere in the world. As you are aware Sandstone can be purchased from China and India fairly cheaply but be aware that some of the stone can be next to useless. You need to be careful when choosing the correct stone but we can advise on that if you need us to. The correct Sealant is paramount in a Sandstone purchasing decision, again, call us for information on 1300 771 201.

Sandstone is a sedimentary rock composed mainly of sand-sized minerals or rock grains, including quartz, calcite, gypsum or various iron compounds. Most Sandstone is composed of quartz and/or feldspar because these are the most common minerals in the Earth's crust. Like sand, Sandstone has a granular texture and may be found in almost any color, but the most common colors are tan, brown, yellow, red, gray, pink, and white. Since Sandstone beds often form highly visible cliffs and other topographic features, certain colors of Sandstone have been strongly identified with certain regions.

Sandstone tiles vary in porosity and hardness however they are soft and porous on the other hand. Since Sandstone tiles can absorb water very fast, it is important to follow proper Sandstone tile restoration methods in every opportunity to ensure proper maintenance.

Sandstone floor can be prone to scratching, staining and fracturing. It also needs to be allowed to breath, instead of being covered by synthetic sealers or urethane. We offer the right solution to protect your Sandstone by using highly penetrating impregnating water based sealers.

The primary cause for polished stone floors becoming dull is walking on them. Prolonged foot traffic grinds and packs in dust, sand, and grit. Although the scratching that occurs is very fine, it eventually covers the majority of the surface and over time dulls the finish to the point where it loses its reflective properties. To make your stone surfaces smooth and reflective, we employ the use of high speed polishers.

Our Sandstone Tile Restoration services can bring back your Sandstone tiles & grout to its best possible condition, and protect them for years to come.

We cover all Suburbs.

Many older buildings have durable Sandstone flooring. This is the chalky porous type typical of most French and Spanish Sandstone. 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.

Sandstone Paving Grey Restoration Professional regular maintenance will be required to maintain its honed or polished appearance. Sandstone looks best with a honed or low/medium sheen appearance however some people insist on a high shine finish. Sandstone will never have the gloss of marble or granite. Some low calcite Sandstone can be extremely difficult to polish and therefore vitrification would be required. Vitrification however can give the stone an unnatural plastic appearance if repeated too often.

  • Pros
  • Durable
  • Easy to clean
  • It is less expensive than marble and granite
  • It is moisture-resistant
  • Cons
  • It feels cold and hard under-foot
  • It requires sealing
  • t reacts to acid

Sandstone Tile Restoration Before & After

Sealing Sandstone Floors

Sandstone can be highly porous - a tablespoon of water on a Sandstone 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 Sandstone is a little harder to penetrate than Sandstone with a honed (matt) finish.

Due to its high porosity it is particularly important for Sandstone to be sealed with a high quality impregnating sealer which will not affect its slip resistance or look. Sandstone is used both outdoors and indoors, and our impregnating sealers will seal Sandstone equally well in either.

Sandstone can be difficult to maintain if a proper maintenance cycle is not put in place from the point of installation. As it is usually not polished, the problem of scratching is not as big an issue as it is with marble, however if proper barrier matting is not introduced even a honed surface will lose its attractiveness. The most important factor to consider with the maintenance of Sandstone is the possibility of staining.

Sandstone's calcite composition makes it susceptible to acid attack from spilt food and drink. Its high porosity can also mean oil will permeate the surface and leave staining if it is not properly sealed with a penetrating / impregnating sealer.

Pre-Sealing Preparation

  1. Any surface to be sealed should be clean and looking just as you want it before it is sealed - it may be impossible to remove stains after sealing without having to strip the sealer again. Acidic cleaners should not be used on Sandstone as it will damage it.
  2. Sandstone must have no other coating such as wax or a topical sealer before it's sealed, so any such coating must be removed before sealing.
  3. Floor must be thoroughly dry before applying any sealer.

Protection from Acid Etching

It is very difficult to seal Sandstone against acid attack.
Sandstone and other calcite based stone such as marble and travertine are prone to acid etching. Sandstone is immediately 'etched' (eaten / corroded) by any acidic material on contact - including lemon juice, cola, wine and champagne. For this reason the honed (matt) look is popular, as it doesn't show the matt etch marks as much as polished Sandstone. In any case, acidic substances should be cleaned up as soon as possible, and Sandstone should not be used outdoors in areas where there is acid rain.
