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 have several different freshly laid tiles in my new house. All pathways have stone tiles and there are marble tiles in the bathrooms and porcelain in the kitchen. I needed to get them sealed and was not sure if it was possible to seal them all. I contacted Tile Cleaners because my dad recommended them. He had a similar situation in his house and was very happy with the job Tile Cleaners had done. I was very worried about my tiles since they were brand new and very expensive. Tile Cleaners team were very patient with me, explaining how they were going to apply the sealer on different types of tiles, what sealer they would use, how long it would last for and advised me on how to take care of my tiles. I called Tile Cleaners a few times confirming details, asking for prices, making sure they could to the job during the weekend etc. The guys were amazingly patient and helpful. When I had gathered all the information I wanted, I was ready to go ahead. The work done by Tile Cleaners actually took less time than what it took me looking for information about it. Sorry for the pain I caused, and again thank you.

Monica Petrovski, West Beach, SA

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.

Terrazzo is a unique and elegant composite material; available in a wide range of styles offering a high degree of design flexibility. Terrazzo is pre-cast or poured into shape and has the ability to attain a very high polish, leaving a very smooth and lustrous shine.

What is Terrazzo Tile?

The name "terrazzo" comes from the Italian word for terraces and was created several hundred years ago when Venetians found a new use for discarded marble fragments, using the pieces together with a binder to surface the terraces around their living areas. Terrazzo typically contains marble, quartz, granite, glass or other aggregates and is poured or hydraulically pressed as tiles. When terrazzo is polished its colours and particular qualities will be further enhanced and more noticeable. Terrazzo is durable, can be repeatedly refinished and is easy to maintain, with a correct maintenance procedure.

Terrazzo floors are a beautiful choice for flooring and can retain their original beauty for a very long time when cared for properly. Canberra's Tile Cleaners® can help you maintain your terrazzo floors and keep them in their best possible condition for longer.

Terrazzo will unfortunately scratch, etch and lose its shine and luster without proper maintenance. The presence of marble in the chips and/or dust means that the surface can become dull through etching caused by acidic substances. To prevent this effect, terrazzo should be protected with a deep penetrating invisible sealer.

Terrazzo has always been dependent on being one of the most durable floor surfaces in the floor tile industry. Terrazzo is usually a poured surface; however, it is now available as a precut floor tile. It is often used in commercial applications and is available in a variety of colours and styles. Tile Cleaners® technicians use only top quality terrazzo cleaners, sealers and polishes.

We provide specialised sealing solutions for all terrazzo surfaces

Although terrazzo is very hard wearing, it is unfortunately quite porous and will easily etch upon contact with common acidic substances. Terrazzo absorbs liquids and oils, leaving stains under the surface that can be very difficult to remove. Fruit juice, sauces, soft drink and acidic cleaning products making contact with terrazzo puts it in danger of permanent staining.

Sealing terrazzo has been debated in the stone and tile industry for many years, as terrazzo is a mixture of marble and cement/binder. Marble chips are sprinkled on the surface meaning that a majority of the surface is marble, which has a low porosity, together with a highly porous binder that easily absorbs stains. This is the part of the flooring which will cause you the most grief.

Terrazzo should be sealed with a high quality impregnating sealer which penetrates both the terrazzo and binder, curing deep inside the pore structure leaving an invisible protective barrier against staining and also resulting in maintenance becoming much easier. Unsealed or weakly sealed terrazzo will soak up oils, spills, and stains.

Australia's Deepshield™ Gold, based on the latest fluoro-bond technology is specifically designed for denser surfaces such as terrazzo, providing protection for up to 15 years. Deepshield™ Gold is non-toxic and non-slip. To check whether your terrazzo is sealed, leave a few drops of water on the surface. If after a few minutes the water has soaked into the terrazzo, then it's time to reseal the stone.

Allow the sealer to penetrate and dry for the recommended amount of time. Drying time will vary with atmospheric conditions, however the surface should be touch-dry within 60 - 90 minutes of application. Surfaces should not be opened to full traffic until totally cured which normally requires 24 hours for a penetrating sealer and 48 hours for topical sealers. Terrazzo sealer applied to Terrazzo-based binding will dry quicker than sealer applied over resin-based binding.

Our equipment can handle both domestic and commercial cleaning jobs, leaving your floors spotless and protected

Pre Sealing Preparation

As with the application of any protective treatment, surface preparation is vital to the longevity of the protective coating. The following should be adhered to for long lasting protection:

  • Always ensure that the surface to be treated is totally free of soil, wax, chemicals and oils as well as any loose material.
  • Always ensure that the surface is totally dry.
  • The sealer will not satisfactorily adhere and cure on a damp floor. Never apply sealer in direct sunlight. The surface will dry too fast, and the sealer will not level nor cure correctly.
Tile Cleaners® will take care of all pre sealing preparation required for your tiles, ensuring the terrazzo tiles are sealed after the tiles have been cleaned and restored to their best possible condition.

Canberra's Tile Cleaners® know the importance of taking care of your terrazzo flooring. Tile cleaning & restoration is an important aspect of maintaining the beauty of your terrazzo floors. If treated properly, terrazzo will provide for a beautiful floor that is hard wearing, warm, stain resistant and extremely easy to maintain.

Terrazzo Tile Maintenance

Special care is required when cleaning terrazzo. Terrazzo tiles are generally porous, even when made with non-porous stone chips, and require sealing to protect them. Even factory pre-sealed tiles require an additional sealer after installation to protect the floor against stains.

Spills should be cleaned immediately. You should generally use only warm water and a mild detergent on your terrazzo floors and never use vinegar, strong chemicals and acidic cleaning products on terrazzo. The acid in vinegar can seriously damage and actually etch and remove the surface of terrazzo. After mopping, dry the floor with a cotton towel or use a sh-mop to remove the moisture and prevent water spots. Always dry your terrazzo floors as they spot very easily.

Terrazzo Tile Sealing

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

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

Terrazzo 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 Terrazzo, 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.

Terrazzo Honing

Honed Terrazzo 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.

Terrazzo 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

You will know it's time to have your terrazzo tiles professionally cleaned once your terrazzo floors start looking dull and matte even after you have given them an efficient domestic clean. If you notice that your terrazzo tiles are staining easily, this is a good indication that your previous sealer is wearing off and your terrazzo floors will need to be resealed immediately to prevent detrimental staining.

Quarry tiles stripping and sealing is simply the process of stripping the coating off the terrazzo tile floor before resealing it. Terrazzo flooring can look dull and lifeless over time, making it look older and really bringing down the feel of the home. By stripping and resealing, you can bring back the beautiful, lustrous appearance of your terrazzo and eliminate the cost of laying new flooring.

Our terrazzo tiles restoration services include effective cleaning of your terrazzo floors, by employing state-of-the-art equipment and our technical expertise. Your terrazzo tiles will be brought back to their best possible condition with our high pressure cleaning and the use of our best cleaning products and expertise.

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 terrazzo 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 terrazzo 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, which is why Tile Cleaners® prefer to use non-toxic finishing agents as we not only want to protect your terrazzo floors, but your families health too. Materials and agents that present potential health hazards are not in our product portfolio and never have been.

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

Terrazzo floors can damage easily, any oily or harsh spills can damage the terrazzo tiles and penetrate the pores leaving a permanent stain, unreachable by domestic cleaning methods. We strongly recommend sealing you terrazzo tiles to keep their natural look and feel, to protect them against permanent staining and to prevent any future accidental damage. They will look their very best for longer and will be easier and more convenient to maintain.

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

To keep your Terrazzo tiles and grout looking new, Tile Cleaners® recommend cleaning each week with a damp microfibre 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 terrazzo tiles is to seal them with one of our highest quality sealers. This is the best protection you terrazzo 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 whether the terrazzo 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 terrazzo floor so in the future nothing will be able to stain your terrazzo 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 terrazzo area separately. The simplest way to measure is by multiplying the width by the length. For example a room that is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide is 3 X 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 off the floor so it is ready for when we arrive.
