What is Terracotta?

Terracotta is a ceramic material that has been used for building construction and decorative arts since ancient times in cultures around the world. Terracotta, which literally means "baked earth," is made from natural clay, which gives it a characteristic reddish-brown color. The color varies slightly depending on the clay used. Terracotta is hard-baked, brownish red earthen ware, often glazed and colored may be glazed for extra durability or to provide color. Usually hand-made and varies in color, texture and appearance. The colors range from natural earthtones such as gray and brownish yellow to various shades of red. It is a waterproof and very sturdy material.

When used indoors, terra cotta tile floors can be left raw, but more often, terra cotta is finished with a top coat sealer. Some terra-cotta tiles are purported to be waterproof. To the contrary, all raw clay tiles are like sponges when it comes to soaking up water.

Terracotta may come prefinished or require application of various types of sealers or coatings on site to provide a wearing surface. May crumble or show wear quickly unless sealed and laid on water proof layer. Terra Cotta should never be installed in a high-traffic area, and should never be cleaned at pressures above 1100 PSI and then only if the grout is in good condition.

Terra cotta tiles are beautiful, and they lend an informal and somewhat rustic or even southwestern air to residential floors. As a raw product, it is always recommended that this type of flooring be sealed after installation. A professional tile cleaner having a thorough knowledge of the different sealers available as well as their application instructions should be used.

If you've chosen terracotta, it's likely that you're looking for an old looking rustic design, so a natural old sealant will be the way to go.

Frequently Asked Questions

When your terracotta floors start to appear dull or matte, even after regular cleaning, it is a clear sign that they are ready for stripping, cleaning, and resealing. Additionally, if you notice that your terracotta tiles are prone to staining easily, it indicates that the previous sealer has worn off, making it crucial to reseal the floors promptly to prevent permanent staining. By addressing these signs and engaging in the appropriate cleaning, stripping, and resealing processes, you can revive the appearance of your terracotta floors and ensure long-lasting protection.

Yes, the process of stripping and sealing terracotta tiles is safe when carried out by professionals. Tile Cleaning ensures the safety of your terracotta tiles by using high-quality water-based products and state-of-the-art cleaning machinery. This combination allows them to provide an effective cleaning solution without compromising the integrity or safety of your terracotta tiles. By relying on their expertise and utilizing safe cleaning methods, Tile Cleaning can strip and seal your terracotta tiles to restore their beauty and enhance their durability.

At Tile Cleaning, we take great care to minimize mess during the stripping and sealing process of terracotta tiles. Our approach involves using high-quality, non-solvent-based stripping and sealing products, which are designed to ensure a clean and tidy process. These products are specifically selected to minimize the risk of damaging your floors, walls, or skirting boards. Our team of technicians is trained to handle the process with utmost care, ensuring that your surfaces are protected throughout. In most cases, non-solvent-based strippers and techniques are used, which effectively achieve excellent results without causing any harm. However, in rare circumstances where solvent-based strippers are necessary, additional precautions may be taken. This could involve temporarily vacating the premises for up to 48 hours to ensure safety and provide optimal protection. Rest assured that our experienced technicians will take all necessary measures to maintain a clean and damage-free environment during the stripping and sealing process.

Tile Cleaning places a strong emphasis on the safety of your family during the cleaning process. They ensure that only non-toxic finishing agents are used, eliminating the presence of any potentially harmful substances or ingredients. Tile Cleaning takes great care in selecting cleaning products, specifically excluding any ingredients that could pose health risks. This commitment to safety not only helps preserve the condition of your stone tiles but also reflects Tile Cleaning's dedication to prioritizing the overall health and safety of your household. 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 terracotta floors is to remove the old sealer and any built-up residue or contaminants from the surface. This process is necessary to ensure that the terracotta floors are thoroughly cleaned and prepared for the application of a new sealer. By stripping the old sealer, any stains, dirt, or grime that may have accumulated over time can be effectively removed, leaving the terracotta floors in their cleanest and most pristine condition. Once the stripping process is complete, the floors can be thoroughly cleaned and a new sealer can be applied, resulting in fresh and revitalized terracotta floors.

A terracotta tile strip and seal process involves removing the existing coating or sealer from terracotta floors and applying a new sealer to restore their appearance. Over time, terracotta flooring can become dull and lose its natural beauty. By stripping off the old coating and resealing the tiles, the original lustrous look of the terracotta can be rejuvenated. This process not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the flooring but also helps to protect it and extend its lifespan, saving you the expense of replacing the entire floor.

When we arrive to reseal your terracotta floors, our professional team will guide you through the step-by-step process. First, any previous sealer that was applied will be stripped off. Next, the terracotta will be meticulously cleaned and neutralized to ensure it is free from dust, residue, and any other substances that could affect the new sealer. Once the surface is prepared, a fresh coat of sealer will be applied to the dry terracotta floor and allowed to set. The result will be a revitalized and protected terracotta floor that not only looks new but is also easier to maintain.

The frequency of sealing terracotta floors depends on several factors, including the type of sealer used and the level of foot traffic the tiles are subjected to. Deepshield® Gold, a deep impregnating water-based sealer, offers long-term protection for up to 15 years. Topical sealers typically have a lifespan of around 3 years. However, high foot traffic or severe weather conditions can shorten the lifespan of the sealer. It is also important to consider the condition of the tiles. If you notice patchy areas and increased susceptibility to staining, it may be a sign that resealing is necessary. For personalized advice and assistance, feel free to contact us, and our team will be happy to help.

If terracotta floors are not sealed, they can be easily damaged. Spills containing oils or harsh substances can penetrate the porous surface of the terracotta tiles, leading to permanent staining that cannot be removed through regular cleaning methods. To prevent this, it is highly recommended to seal your terracotta tiles. Sealing helps maintain the fresh appearance of the tiles, provides protection against permanent staining, and prevents future accidental damage. By sealing your terracotta floors, you can ensure they retain their optimal condition for a longer period and make maintenance easier and more convenient.

The ideal time to seal your terracotta floors is right after their installation to proactively protect against accidental staining or damage. You can determine if your terracotta tiles need sealing by observing patchy sealed areas on the floor or noticing that the tiles are becoming more susceptible to staining. These signs indicate that resealing is necessary to maintain the integrity and appearance of your terracotta floors.

Efflorescence is a common issue that can occur with terracotta and other porous tiles. It occurs when water in the terracotta brings salts to the surface as it evaporates, leaving behind a whitish coating that can ruin the appearance of the tiles. Sealing your terracotta tiles with a high-quality water-resistant sealer can help mitigate the risk of efflorescence. Additionally, it is important to address any sources of water penetration, such as leaks or damaged grout, to prevent the recurrence of efflorescence. By sealing the tiles and addressing the underlying causes, you can minimize the chances of efflorescence affecting your terracotta floors.

Tile Cleaning has the capability to remove efflorescence from terracotta tiles. Efflorescence is a result of salt buildup and can be effectively eliminated using specialized cleaning techniques and efflorescence removers. It is crucial to address the underlying cause of efflorescence, such as a leak behind the tiles or damaged grout lines, to prevent its recurrence. By resolving the root issue and implementing the necessary cleaning methods, Tile Cleaning can successfully remove efflorescence from terracotta tiles.

To maintain the pristine appearance of your terracotta tiles and grout, Tile Cleaning suggest cleaning them on a weekly basis using a gentle detergent. This will effectively eliminate any accumulated dirt or grime from the terracotta surface. It is important to avoid using harsh detergents containing strong acids or alkalis, as they may negatively impact the sealer. Instead, we highly recommend opting for mild detergents and pH neutral substances for optimal results.

Tile Cleaning follow a pricing model based on the square meter measurement for each individual room. You can find a detailed price list on the Tile Cleaning website for your reference. Prior to commencing the work, we will accurately measure each room, discuss the specific tasks to be performed, and provide you with a comprehensive cost breakdown for your approval.

When measuring a terracotta area, it is recommended to measure each section individually. The simplest approach is to multiply the width of the area by its length. For example, if a room has dimensions of 3 meters in length and 2 meters in width, the total area can be determined by multiplying 3 by 2, resulting in 6 square meters.

To prepare for the cleaning of terracotta surfaces, it is important to clear the floor of any furniture or objects. This will ensure that the area is ready for the cleaning process upon the arrival of our team.
