Testimonials

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.

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.

I just got new tiles laid in my house that were very expensive. I needed to get them sealed but couldn't afford to pay much for it. On the other hand I didn't want to go for a company offering cheap and unreliably services. My boss recommended Tile Cleaners, saying that the company's prices were reasonable and that they offered quality service when he used them. I contacted them and ended up doing a booking with them. It is very pleasant to know that there are companies out there who actually care about providing very high quality services for affordable prices. I gave your contacts to my sister. Thank you for the job you did

Tile & Grout Cleaning

Cleaning Tile & Grout combines specialised industrial equipment and heavy duty cleaning products. By applying specially developed cleaning solutions together with high pressure van mounted cleaning equipment, we are able to thoroughly clean your tile & grout to the highest standards .


Tile Cleaning offer comprehensive grout cleaning services that involve utilizing specialized tools and equipment such as Turbo Hybrid Machines and Scrubbers. These advanced machines are employed to scrub the grout, effectively restoring it to its optimal condition. In larger areas, the machines are used to achieve efficient and consistent results. However, in smaller or hard-to-reach spaces where machine usage is not feasible, the grout cleaning is performed manually with meticulous attention to detail. Regardless of the method employed, Tile Cleaning' services are designed to deliver remarkable outcomes and bring your grout back to its best possible state.

To measure the size of an area that requires grout restoration, it is advisable to measure each section or room individually. The most straightforward method is to multiply the width of the area by its length. For instance, if a room measures 3 meters in length and 2 meters in width, the total area would be calculated as 3 meters multiplied by 2 meters, resulting in 6 square meters (6m²). By measuring each area separately using this method, you can accurately estimate the total area that requires grout restoration, facilitating better planning and ensuring appropriate quantities of materials are used.

The appropriate time to address the grout's condition is when it begins to appear lackluster and stained, despite thorough cleaning efforts. At this stage, when the grout loses its shine and retains discoloration, it indicates the need for attention and maintenance.

At Tile Cleaning, we prioritize the safety of your family and understand its significance. That's why we have chosen to utilize non-toxic finishing agents in our grout cleaning products. We are not only dedicated to safeguarding and maintaining the quality of your ceramic floors but also to preserving the well-being of your loved ones. We ensure that our product portfolio does not include any materials or agents that pose potential health hazards. This commitment to safety has always been integral to our practices at Tile Cleaning.

A comprehensive grout maintenance routine generally involves two key steps: stripping and cleaning, followed by resealing. It is advisable to perform these tasks at least once every year or two, particularly in commercial areas that experience heavy foot traffic, where an annual cleaning schedule is recommended. By implementing this routine, you can effectively maintain the condition and longevity of your grout, ensuring its cleanliness and durability over time.

To maintain the pristine appearance of your tiles and grout, Tile Cleaners® suggests a few important steps. First and foremost, we recommend sealing your grout lines using our highly effective water-based impregnating grout sealer, Deepshield™ Penetrating Grout Sealer. This proven product helps protect your grout from stains and discoloration, keeping it looking fresh. Additionally, we advise regular weekly cleaning using a damp microfiber cloth and a mild detergent. This gentle cleaning routine helps eliminate dirt and grime from the tiled surface without compromising the integrity of the sealer. It's crucial to avoid using strong detergents with acidic or alkaline properties, as they may negatively affect the sealer. Instead, opt for mild detergents and pH-neutral substances for optimal results. By following these guidelines, you can effectively preserve the appearance and longevity of your grout, ensuring it stays looking new for years to come.

At Tile Cleaning, we follow a per square meter pricing structure for stripping, cleaning, and sealing grout in each separate room. To provide transparency and convenience, we have a price list available on our website for you to review. Prior to commencing any work, our team will measure each room individually and discuss the specific tasks to be performed. We will also ensure that all costs are confirmed with you, so there are no surprises along the way. Our aim is to provide clarity and clarity when it comes to pricing, ensuring your satisfaction with our services.

Tile Cleaning understands the need for assistance with moving furniture before starting the grout cleaning process. Our technicians are capable of helping with items that can be reasonably moved by one person, such as furniture with wheels, light furniture, tables, and chairs. However, it is important to note that while our insurance covers our restoration services, we cannot be held responsible for any damage that may occur to furniture or property when our technicians assist with moving items at your request. We prioritize caution and care during the process, but it's advisable to take precautions and consider the specific requirements and risks associated with moving your furniture.

To facilitate the grout cleaning process and ensure our ability to effectively clean and restore your grout, it is necessary for you to prepare the area beforehand. This involves moving all furniture and items off the floor, allowing us unobstructed access to the grout. By taking this step and ensuring a clear workspace, we can efficiently carry out the cleaning procedure upon our arrival.

Scheduling an estimate with Tile Cleaners is a straightforward process. Begin by visiting our website and selecting the location nearest to you. Once you have chosen the appropriate location, you can either email the local office, providing your contact information, or directly call the phone number of your local Tile Cleaners representative. By initiating contact through either of these methods, you can easily schedule an estimate and take the first step toward obtaining our services.

In the majority of cases, Tile Cleaners® in $custom_city provides free quotes over the phone. However, there are situations where it may be necessary for us to assess the work that needs to be done before providing a quote. This determination is based on factors such as the size and complexity of the project. Rest assured, our team will communicate clearly whether an on-site evaluation is required and guide you accordingly. Our goal is to ensure transparency and provide accurate pricing information for your specific cleaning needs.

In the majority of cases, Tile Cleaners® can provide an approximate quote or estimate over the phone within a time frame of 5 to 10 minutes. We understand the importance of efficiency and aim to promptly provide you with pricing information for your project. Additionally, on the day the job is scheduled, our team will inspect the area to be serviced and confirm the quote, ensuring your final approval before commencing any work. This approach allows us to maintain transparency and ensures that you are comfortable with the agreed-upon pricing before we begin the cleaning process.

Once you have made the decision to proceed with our grout work, Tile Cleaners® typically schedules appointments within a timeframe of 2 to 10 days. We strive to accommodate your needs efficiently and aim to provide prompt service. In many cases, the actual work on your grout can be completed on the same day that we come out to confirm the quote, ensuring a seamless and timely process. Our goal is to minimize any delays and complete the job promptly while maintaining the highest standard of quality.

Tile Cleaning utilizes a low-pressure, hot water system for grout cleaning. Our advanced vapor system heats water to high temperatures, reaching up to 320 degrees. This vapor technology effectively cleans your grout by utilizing tap water, without the need for harsh chemicals. The process leaves your grout in a pH-neutral state, ensuring a thorough and environmentally friendly cleaning outcome. Our focus is on utilizing innovative and safe methods to achieve optimal results while maintaining the integrity of your grout.

In certain cleaning scenarios, the use of a chemical cleaner may be necessary as a pre-treatment. However, it's important to note that the chemical cleaner employed by Tile Cleaning contains no acid or bleach, as these ingredients can cause long-term damage to your grout. Following the application of the chemical solution, our vapor technology is utilized to remove discoloration and eliminate any residual chemical residue from the grout joints. It is worth mentioning that in cases where the grout is old and significantly discolored, there might be instances where we need to use chemicals that contain a minimal amount of bleach or acid. Rest assured, our aim is always to prioritize the safety and preservation of your grout while achieving the best possible cleaning outcomes.

The utilization of vapor cleaning during the grout maintenance process offers several advantages. One notable benefit is that the vapor cleaning process effectively eliminates the grout cleaner from the pores of the joint, ensuring thorough cleaning. Additionally, this method leaves the grout in a pH neutral state, avoiding any potential imbalance or damage to the grout. By employing vapor cleaning, Tile Cleaning can achieve deep and comprehensive cleaning while maintaining the integrity and balance of your grout.

The use of grout cleaner and vapor cleaning offers distinct advantages over simply scrubbing the grout with a brush and mopping it clean. When grout is only mopped after applying cleaner, the excess cleaner is not fully absorbed, resulting in residue left within the pores of the grout. This residual cleaner can disrupt the pH level of the floor, potentially creating an environment that attracts dirt and grime even after the cleaning process is complete. In contrast, the vapor cleaning method ensures the complete removal of the cleaner from the grout, leaving it in a pH neutral state. This approach promotes a thorough and long-lasting clean, minimizing the risk of residue buildup and maintaining the cleanliness and integrity of your grout over time.

Tile Cleaning may use a truck-mounted cleaning machine in certain situations, taking into account the size and requirements of the job. The equipment is capable of generating pressure ranging from 1500 to 3000 psi. However, it is important to note that we adjust the pressure according to the specific type of tile and grout being treated. This precautionary measure is crucial to prevent any potential damage. Using the incorrect pressure can result in the formation of small cracks in the grout joint or exacerbate existing cracks. By carefully adjusting the pressure, we ensure that the cleaning process is effective while safeguarding the integrity of your grout and tile surfaces.

Grout recoloring involves applying a specialized grout colorant to alter or enhance the existing color of your grout. This process allows for a complete transformation of the grout's color, offering the opportunity to change its appearance and achieve a desired aesthetic effect.

There are several reasons why you might consider recoloring your grout. Firstly, if your current grout is heavily soiled and resistant to cleaning, recoloring can provide a solution to improve its appearance. Additionally, grout can fade over time, especially when exposed to high foot traffic or prolonged sunlight exposure. Recoloring the grout allows you to eliminate color variations and restore a consistent and uniform look to your tiled surfaces. By opting for grout recoloring, you can revitalize the overall appearance of your grout, achieving a cleaner and more visually appealing result.

Absolutely! Grout recoloring offers the flexibility to lighten or darken the color of your existing grout. Whether you prefer a lighter shade or a darker tone, the process allows for a wide range of color options. You can choose to match the new grout color closely to your existing grout or opt for an entirely different color to complement any changes in your decor. The versatility of grout recoloring ensures that you have the freedom to achieve the desired look and feel for your tiled surfaces.

After undergoing the recoloring process, your grout will appear refreshed and devoid of any color variations. The color sealer utilized is a penetrating type, which allows it to bond with the silica in the grout joint while maintaining the grout's natural appearance. Unlike some topical color sealers available in the market that can make the grout look painted, the penetrating color sealer ensures a more authentic and seamless result. With the recoloring process, you can expect your grout to have a revitalized and uniform look, as if it were brand new.

Recolouring grout is the application of a grout colorant to completely change or enhance the colour of your grout.

In some circumstances, your existing grout can be soiled to the point it will not clean well enough to be acceptable. Grout can also fade if exposed to excessive foot traffic or sunlight making it impossible to eliminate colour variations in your grout.

Yes, your existing grout can be re-coloured to a lighter or darker shade of your existing grout or a different colour altogether to match your changing decor.

The recolouring process will leave your grout looking brand new eliminating any colour variations. The colour sealer used is a penetrating colour sealer leaving the grout in its natural state as it bonds to the silica in the grout joint. Some colour sealers on the market are topical that will cause your grout to look painted in its completed state.

When your slate surfaces start to lose their natural luster and appear dull or matte, even after regular cleaning, it's a clear sign that they are due for cleaning, stripping, and resealing. Additionally, if you notice that your slate tiles are becoming more prone to staining, it's a strong indication that the previous sealer has worn off and immediate resealing is necessary to prevent permanent staining. By addressing these signs promptly, you can maintain the beauty and longevity of your slate floors.

Yes, the slate tile cleaning services provided by Tile Cleaners® are safe. They utilize high-quality water-based products and state-of-the-art cleaning machinery to ensure the best cleaning solution without causing any harm to your slate tiles.

Tile Cleaners® takes pride in their ability to cater to the specific needs of each tile variety, including slate, ensuring a safe and effective cleaning process.

Tile Cleaning prioritizes the use of high-quality non-solvent based stripping and sealing products during their process. These products are designed to be clean and not cause any damage to your slate tiles or other surfaces in your home. The advanced non-solvent based strippers and techniques utilized by Tile Cleaning are highly effective. In certain specific situations, where necessary, Tile Cleaning technicians may apply solvent-based strippers. However, this process would require you to vacate the premises for up to 48 hours to ensure the highest level of safety and protection for everyone involved. Rest assured that Tile Cleaning takes precautions to minimize mess and prevent any damage to your walls or skirting boards during the stripping, cleaning, and sealing process.

Tile Cleaning places great importance on the safety of your family throughout the cleaning process and guarantees the use of non-toxic finishing agents.

When Tile Cleaning arrive to reseal your slate 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 slate to eliminate dust, residue, and any other substances that could impact the new sealer's effectiveness. Once the slate 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 slate 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.

To maintain the appearance and keep your slate tiles looking new, Tile Cleaners® suggests cleaning them on a weekly basis using a mild detergent. This regular cleaning routine helps remove dirt and grime from the surface of the slate. It is important to avoid using strong detergents that contain strong acids or alkalis as they can potentially affect the sealer. Instead, opt for mild detergents and pH-neutral substances, which are highly recommended for cleaning slate tiles and preserving the integrity of the sealer. By following these guidelines, you can help ensure that your slate tiles retain their fresh and attractive appearance over time.

When it comes to slate restoration services, Tile Cleaning follows a pricing structure based on the square meterage of each separate room. You can find a price list on the Tile Cleaning website for your reference. Additionally, you can reach out to Tile Cleaning at 1300 771 201 to obtain a free estimate. 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 restoration work begins.

To measure the size of a slate area, it is recommended to measure each room individually. 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 separately and using the width * length method, you can accurately determine the size of the slate area you wish to assess or have restored.

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 slate 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 slate 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 slate floors receive the attention they need.

The frequency of sealing slate floors depends on several factors such as the type of sealer used and the amount of foot traffic the tiles are subjected to. Australia's Deepshield™ range of deep impregnating water-based sealers, for example, offers long-term benefits, with Deepshield™ Gold having a potential lifespan of up to 15 years. On the other hand, topical sealers typically last around 3 years. However, the actual lifespan can vary based on factors like high foot traffic or severe weather conditions for outdoor tiles. It's important to assess the condition of your slate tiles as well. If you notice patchy areas or they are staining easily, it may indicate the need for resealing. For specific inquiries and assistance, feel free to contact us, and our team will be happy to help.

If slate floors are not sealed, they can be susceptible to damage. Any spills that contain oil or harsh substances have the potential to penetrate the pores of the slate tiles, resulting in permanent stains that cannot be easily removed using regular domestic cleaning methods. To preserve the natural look and feel of your slate tiles, and to safeguard them against permanent staining and accidental damage, it is highly recommended to seal them. Sealing the slate floors not only helps them maintain their pristine appearance for a longer period but also makes them easier to maintain and clean, providing convenience and peace of mind.

The ideal time to seal slate floors is right after installation to provide immediate protection against accidental staining or damage. As for determining if your slate 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 slate tiles are staining more easily than before, it is a clear indication that the existing sealant has deteriorated and resealing is necessary. Monitoring the condition of your slate tiles and being attentive to any changes in their appearance and stain resistance will help you determine when it is time to seal them.

Yes, Tile Cleaning is able to remove efflorescence buildup from slate tiles. Efflorescence, which is the accumulation of salts, can be effectively eliminated using efflorescence removers and other specialized cleaning techniques. It is worth noting that efflorescence is commonly caused by issues such as water leakage behind the slate tiles or through damaged grout lines. While the efflorescence can be removed, it is crucial to address and resolve the underlying cause to prevent its recurrence. By tackling both the efflorescence buildup and addressing the root cause, Tile Cleaners® can help restore the appearance and integrity of your slate tiles.

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.

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.

Travertine is a type of limestone that falls between marble and limestone in terms of its development over thousands of years. It is formed by the rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate in mineral springs, hot springs, underground rivers, and other water sources. Travertine typically displays a fibrous or concentric appearance and comes in various colors such as white, tan, and cream. It can be found in formations like stalactites, stalagmites, and other speleothems in limestone caves or at the mouths of hot springs. Travertine is commonly used as a construction material in Italy and other regions. It is important to note that travertine tiles are often porous and susceptible to staining due to the presence of escape gases during its formation. Therefore, professionally sealing porous travertine tiles is crucial, especially when they are exposed to domestic dirt or residue.

When your Travertine floors appear dull and lack their usual shine, despite thorough domestic cleaning, it is a clear sign that professional cleaning is required. The dull and matte appearance indicates the accumulation of dirt and grime that cannot be effectively removed through regular cleaning methods. Another indication is when the Travertine tiles start staining easily, which suggests that the previous sealer has worn off, leaving the surface vulnerable to staining. In such cases, immediate resealing becomes essential to prevent further damage from staining. By addressing these signs promptly and seeking professional cleaning and resealing, you can restore the beauty and protect the longevity of your Travertine floors.

Tile Cleaning recommend cleaning the tiles and grout on a weekly basis using a damp microfiber cloth and a mild detergent. This will effectively remove any dirt or grime from the tiled surface. It is important to avoid using strong detergents that contain strong acids or alkalis, as they can potentially affect the sealer. Instead, mild detergents and pH neutral substances are strongly recommended.

Sealing is an excellent preventive measure that safeguards your Travertine tiles and helps maintain their pristine condition.

Tile Cleaning may be able to remove a stain from your Travertine floor if it is relatively new and hasn't deeply penetrated the stone. However, we cannot provide a guarantee of complete stain removal; our commitment is to clean the area to the best possible condition. The effectiveness of stain removal also depends on whether the Travertine tiles have been previously sealed or not. In some cases, stains may have penetrated the natural stone and settled beneath the surface, making them more challenging to clean. It is important to consider having us perform a comprehensive process of stripping, cleaning, and sealing your Travertine floor. This ensures that future stains are prevented from penetrating the surface and enhances the overall stain resistance of your Travertine floors.

It is recommended to measure each room individually before our team arrives, as this ensures a fast and convenient billing process for everyone involved.

The recommended frequency for sealing marble floors depends on various factors, including the type of sealer used and the level of foot traffic the tiles experience. In Australia, the Deepshield® range offers deep impregnating water-based sealers, with Deepshield Gold® specifically designed for denser materials like marble and granite, providing protection for up to 15 years. Topical sealers typically last around 3 years. However, if your marble floors endure heavy foot traffic or are exposed to severe weather conditions (in the case of outdoor tiles), the lifespan of the sealer may be shorter. It is also important to consider the condition of the tiles. If you notice patchy areas and an increased susceptibility to staining, it may indicate that resealing is necessary. For further inquiries, please don't hesitate to contact our team, who will be delighted to assist you.

If marble floors are not sealed, they can be more susceptible to damage. Oily or harsh spills can penetrate the pores of the marble tiles, resulting in permanent stains that cannot be effectively removed with domestic cleaning methods. To prevent such staining and maintain the natural look and feel of marble tiles, it is strongly recommended to seal them. Sealing provides a protective barrier that safeguards against permanent staining and helps prevent future accidental damage. By sealing your marble floors, you can ensure they retain their optimal appearance for a longer period and make maintenance easier and more convenient.

The best time to seal marble floors is immediately after installation to provide proactive protection against accidental staining or damage. To determine if your marble floors require sealing, look for patchy areas on the floor where the sealant may have worn off. Additionally, if you notice that the marble tiles are becoming more susceptible to staining, it indicates that the existing sealer has deteriorated, and resealing is necessary to maintain the integrity and appearance of your marble floors. By addressing these signs promptly, you can ensure the long-term beauty and protection of your marble floors.

To maintain the fresh appearance of your marble tiles, it is recommended to follow a regular cleaning routine. Tile Cleaning suggests cleaning the tiles weekly using a damp microfiber cloth and a mild detergent to remove any dirt or grime from the surface. It is important to avoid using strong detergents that contain acid or alkali, as they may affect the sealer. Instead, opt for mild detergents and pH-neutral substances. Additionally, to provide an extra layer of protection against staining, Tile Cleaning advises sealing your marble tiles with one of their highest quality sealers. Sealing is considered the best form of protection for marble tiles, helping to preserve their appearance and prevent staining. By following these recommendations, you can keep your marble tiles looking new and enhance their longevity.

If the stain on your marble floor is recent and has not deeply set in, there is a good chance that it can be removed. However, it is important to note that complete stain removal cannot be guaranteed. The commitment of Tile Cleaning is to clean the floor to the best possible condition. The success of stain removal also depends on whether the marble tiles have been previously sealed or not. Some stains may penetrate the natural stone and settle below the surface, making them more challenging to clean. To prevent future staining and maintain the appearance of your marble floors, Tile Cleaning recommends a comprehensive process that involves stripping, cleaning, and sealing the marble floor. This approach provides protection and reduces the susceptibility of your marble floors to staining.

The outcome of this process is a rejuvenated granite floor that not only looks new but is also protected, making it easier to maintain in the long run.

The frequency of sealing granite floors varies based on the type of sealer used and the level of foot traffic they experience. The Deepshield® range of impregnating water-based sealers in Australia, particularly Deepshield Gold® designed for denser surfaces like granite, can offer long-lasting protection for up to 15 years. In contrast, topical sealers generally have a lifespan of around 3 years. However, the actual duration may be influenced by factors such as high foot traffic or severe weather conditions for outdoor tiles, which could necessitate more frequent resealing. Additionally, the condition of the tiles themselves is a significant factor. If you notice patchy areas or easy staining, it may indicate the need for resealing. Feel free to reach out to us for further assistance with any inquiries related to sealing your granite tiles.

Not sealing granite floors can lead to potential issues due to their porous nature. Without proper sealing, the granite tiles can absorb liquids and be prone to staining from oily or harsh spills. These stains can penetrate the pores of the granite and become permanent, making them difficult to remove with regular domestic cleaning methods. By sealing your granite tiles, you can preserve their natural appearance, protect them against permanent staining, and prevent future accidental damage. Sealed granite floors maintain their beauty for a longer period and are easier to maintain and clean. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to seal your granite tiles to ensure they look their best and remain in optimal condition.

The ideal moment to seal your granite floors is right after their installation, as this helps prevent any potential accidental staining or damage. If you observe patchy sealed areas on your granite tiles or notice that they are becoming more prone to staining, these are clear indications that your granite floors are in need of sealing. By addressing these signs promptly, you can ensure the long-term protection and beauty of your granite floors.

Efflorescence can be a common issue with porous tiles like granite. It occurs when water in the granite carries salts to the surface as it evaporates. This process leaves behind a whitish coating and can damage the finish of the granite. To prevent efflorescence, it is recommended to seal your granite tiles with a high-quality water-resistant sealer. Additionally, identifying and addressing the source of water penetration, such as a water pipe leak or damaged grout, is crucial. By sealing the tiles and resolving any water-related issues, you can minimize the occurrence of efflorescence and maintain the quality and appearance of your granite floors.

Yes, we can remove the built-up efflorescence on your granite tiles. Efflorescence is a result of salt buildup and can be effectively treated using specialized cleaning techniques and efflorescence removers. It is important to note that efflorescence is often caused by underlying issues such as water leakage behind the granite tiles or damaged grout lines. Therefore, while we can remove the efflorescence, it is crucial to address and resolve the root cause to prevent its recurrence. Our team is experienced in identifying and addressing these underlying issues to provide a comprehensive solution for efflorescence removal and prevention.

To maintain the appearance of your granite tiles and keep them looking new, it is recommended to clean them weekly using a mild detergent. This will help remove any dirt or grime that may have accumulated on the surface. It is important to avoid using strong detergents with high acidity or alkalinity, as they can potentially affect the sealer on the granite. Instead, opt for mild detergents and pH neutral substances, which are safe and effective for cleaning granite tiles. By regularly cleaning your granite tiles with the proper cleaning agents, you can preserve their natural beauty and extend their lifespan.

Is granite a suitable choice for kitchen countertops? Granite is highly durable and resistant to scratching, cracking, and staining. It is also heat-resistant, making it an excellent option for kitchen countertops. With its ability to withstand daily kitchen activities, granite is a reliable and long-lasting choice for your kitchen countertop.

Unfortunately, our services specifically focus on granite floors and walls, and we do not offer restoration work for benchtops.

Granite, like any solid surface, can be damaged by extremely hard blows that can cause chips on its surface. However, it is possible to repair such chips by filling them with a mixture of granite dust and epoxy. Under normal everyday use, granite is unlikely to crack, but it may be susceptible to cracking during shipping and installation. It is worth noting that granite is one of the hardest stones in the world, and it can only be scratched by another piece of granite or a specialized granite tool.

Using a granite countertop as a cutting surface is not recommended. Granite is significantly harder than household knives and can quickly dull the blades. To protect your knives and maintain their sharpness, it is best to use a chopping board or cutting surface made of a softer material.

Granite has a low porosity compared to other natural stones, making it less prone to staining. However, some granite colors may still absorb a small amount of moisture if left for an extended period. To prevent the formation of darker patches on your granite, it is highly recommended to use a penetrating stone sealer. This sealer helps to further reduce the porosity of the granite and protect it from potential stains.

Answering this question can be challenging because it relies on various factors such as frequency of use, contact with objects like trolleys, cleaning practices (sweeping, vacuuming, mopping), and the cleaning products used. Some brooms may have abrasive bristles that can potentially damage the floor. Additionally, certain chemicals can erode the floor sealer, so it's crucial to use pH-neutral floor cleaners with proper dilution rates. Even a pH-neutral cleaner can become alkaline if not diluted correctly. The number of previous sealer coats, the quality of the sealer, and the correct sealing technique employed also play a role in determining floor durability.

Our vinyl cleaning services consist of three main steps: stripping the vinyl or linoleum floor, thoroughly cleaning it, and finally, re-sealing the floor.

Resealing vinyl floors is advised for multiple reasons. If your floors are aged, extensively scratched, or discolored, stripping away old sealers and applying a fresh, high-quality gloss finish can effectively restore their appearance. The process of resealing not only rejuvenates the look of the floors but also prolongs their lifespan. It diminishes the visibility of marks and scratches while establishing a protective barrier against dirt infiltration and abrasion. By opting for resealing, you can enhance the durability, enhance the visual appeal, and safeguard your vinyl or linoleum floors from future damage.

The recommended frequency for resealing vinyl or linoleum floors varies depending on factors like usage and foot traffic. Commercial floors, subject to heavy use, generally require resealing every one to two years to maintain their condition and protection. In residential settings, the frequency can range from every three to ten years, depending on the level of foot traffic and usage. Factors such as the quality of the sealer used and the application process also influence the longevity of the seal. Opting for professional sealing services ensures optimal results, extends the durability of the seal, and can potentially save time and money in the long term.

The vinyl strip and seal process involves the removal of the current coating or sealant from the vinyl floor, followed by resealing it. Over time, vinyl flooring can become dull and lose its shine, resulting in an aged and unappealing appearance. By performing a strip and seal procedure, the vinyl floor can be revitalized, restoring its attractive and glossy look. This process eliminates the need for expensive floor replacement and offers a cost-effective solution to enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of the area.

Our professional team will guide you through each step of the job, ensuring that you have a clear understanding of the process. Firstly, any previous sealer, if present, will be stripped off. Next, the vinyl or linoleum surface will undergo a thorough cleaning and neutralization process to remove dust, residue, and any other elements that may affect the new sealer. Once the surface is dry, a fresh layer of sealer will be applied and allowed to set. As a result, your newly sealed vinyl or linoleum floors will regain their appearance, receive protection, and become easier to maintain.

The time required to reseal vinyl or linoleum floors can vary based on the size of the area being sealed. On average, most projects are completed within 4 to 8 hours. At our company, we prioritize efficiency by aiming to complete the stripping, cleaning, and resealing processes in a single day. This approach eliminates the need for multiple appointments and ensures a smooth experience for our customers. Our dedicated team works diligently to complete the resealing process within a reasonable timeframe, allowing you to enjoy your revitalized vinyl or linoleum floors as soon as possible.

Stripping vinyl or linoleum floors with the help of a professional is crucial to achieve the cleanest and most aesthetically pleasing results. By stripping the wax from the surface, any accumulated grime and dirt can be effectively removed. Once the previous wax is stripped off, the surface undergoes a professional cleaning process, followed by the application of a high-quality sealer. This comprehensive approach ensures that your vinyl or linoleum floors attain a fresh and immaculate appearance.

It is recommended to strip residential vinyl or linoleum floors every 3-10 years, while commercial floors may require stripping every 1-3 years. However, it is important to note that excessive stripping can potentially damage the floors. To maintain a fresh appearance, regular buffing and polishing are preferable as they help preserve the floors' new look.

To maintain the condition and appearance of your vinyl or linoleum floor, there are a few simple precautions you can take. Placing a doormat at entrances can help to trap dirt and debris, preventing them from being tracked onto the floor. Regularly sweeping the floor to remove loose dirt and grit is also essential, as these particles can act as abrasives and potentially scratch the surface.

By implementing these basic measures, you can help preserve the longevity and fresh look of your vinyl or linoleum floor.

To clean vinyl or linoleum floors, it is advisable to sweep or vacuum using a solid floor attachment to remove loose dirt and debris. For stubborn dirt that cannot be removed through sweeping or vacuuming, a non-rinsing cleaner that does not leave behind any residue can be used along with a mop. It is important to avoid using abrasive cleaners, oil-based cleaners, or dish detergents, as these can potentially damage the flooring. By following these guidelines, you can effectively clean and maintain your vinyl or linoleum floors.

Tile Cleaning charges per square meter for each separate room during the stripping and sealing process. You can find a detailed price list on the Tile Cleaning website for your reference. Prior to starting the work, our team will measure each room individually, discuss the scope of work to be performed, and confirm all associated costs with you. This ensures transparency and clarity regarding the pricing structure for stripping and sealing your vinyl surfaces.

In some cases, our buffing and polishing techniques can minimize the appearance of small scratches. However, please note that deep scratches may still be visible even after the restoration process.

To determine if your old and dull vinyl or linoleum floors can be restored to regain a new appearance, a Tile Cleaning technician will need to conduct an inspection. The feasibility of restoration will depend on various factors, including the age of the vinyl. By carefully assessing the condition of the floors, the technician can provide a professional evaluation and determine if restoration is possible. This inspection allows for an accurate assessment of the floors' potential for revitalization, ensuring that you receive informed guidance regarding the best course of action for your specific vinyl or linoleum flooring.

If the stain is new and has not fully set in, there is a high chance that we can remove it. However, it is important to note that proper maintenance, including regular stripping, cleaning, and sealing, is essential to prevent staining on your vinyl floor in the future.

The main distinction lies in the maintenance requirements. Linoleum floors necessitate regular refinishing intervals, while vinyl floors are more durable and typically only require occasional resealing when the sealant wears off, leaving the tiles vulnerable to scuffing or tearing.

Tile Cleaning offer comprehensive grout cleaning services that involve utilizing specialized tools and equipment such as Turbo Hybrid Machines and Scrubbers. These advanced machines are employed to scrub the grout, effectively restoring it to its optimal condition. In larger areas, the machines are used to achieve efficient and consistent results. However, in smaller or hard-to-reach spaces where machine usage is not feasible, the grout cleaning is performed manually with meticulous attention to detail. Regardless of the method employed, Tile Cleaning' services are designed to deliver remarkable outcomes and bring your grout back to its best possible state.

To measure the size of an area that requires grout restoration, it is advisable to measure each section or room individually. The most straightforward method is to multiply the width of the area by its length. For instance, if a room measures 3 meters in length and 2 meters in width, the total area would be calculated as 3 meters multiplied by 2 meters, resulting in 6 square meters (6m²). By measuring each area separately using this method, you can accurately estimate the total area that requires grout restoration, facilitating better planning and ensuring appropriate quantities of materials are used.

The appropriate time to address the grout's condition is when it begins to appear lackluster and stained, despite thorough cleaning efforts. At this stage, when the grout loses its shine and retains discoloration, it indicates the need for attention and maintenance.

At Tile Cleaning, we prioritize the safety of your family and understand its significance. That's why we have chosen to utilize non-toxic finishing agents in our grout cleaning products. We are not only dedicated to safeguarding and maintaining the quality of your ceramic floors but also to preserving the well-being of your loved ones. We ensure that our product portfolio does not include any materials or agents that pose potential health hazards. This commitment to safety has always been integral to our practices at Tile Cleaning.

A comprehensive grout maintenance routine generally involves two key steps: stripping and cleaning, followed by resealing. It is advisable to perform these tasks at least once every year or two, particularly in commercial areas that experience heavy foot traffic, where an annual cleaning schedule is recommended. By implementing this routine, you can effectively maintain the condition and longevity of your grout, ensuring its cleanliness and durability over time.

To maintain the pristine appearance of your tiles and grout, Tile Cleaners® suggests a few important steps. First and foremost, we recommend sealing your grout lines using our highly effective water-based impregnating grout sealer, Deepshield™ Penetrating Grout Sealer. This proven product helps protect your grout from stains and discoloration, keeping it looking fresh. Additionally, we advise regular weekly cleaning using a damp microfiber cloth and a mild detergent. This gentle cleaning routine helps eliminate dirt and grime from the tiled surface without compromising the integrity of the sealer. It's crucial to avoid using strong detergents with acidic or alkaline properties, as they may negatively affect the sealer. Instead, opt for mild detergents and pH-neutral substances for optimal results. By following these guidelines, you can effectively preserve the appearance and longevity of your grout, ensuring it stays looking new for years to come.

At Tile Cleaning, we follow a per square meter pricing structure for stripping, cleaning, and sealing grout in each separate room. To provide transparency and convenience, we have a price list available on our website for you to review. Prior to commencing any work, our team will measure each room individually and discuss the specific tasks to be performed. We will also ensure that all costs are confirmed with you, so there are no surprises along the way. Our aim is to provide clarity and clarity when it comes to pricing, ensuring your satisfaction with our services.

Tile Cleaning understands the need for assistance with moving furniture before starting the grout cleaning process. Our technicians are capable of helping with items that can be reasonably moved by one person, such as furniture with wheels, light furniture, tables, and chairs. However, it is important to note that while our insurance covers our restoration services, we cannot be held responsible for any damage that may occur to furniture or property when our technicians assist with moving items at your request. We prioritize caution and care during the process, but it's advisable to take precautions and consider the specific requirements and risks associated with moving your furniture.

To facilitate the grout cleaning process and ensure our ability to effectively clean and restore your grout, it is necessary for you to prepare the area beforehand. This involves moving all furniture and items off the floor, allowing us unobstructed access to the grout. By taking this step and ensuring a clear workspace, we can efficiently carry out the cleaning procedure upon our arrival.

Scheduling an estimate with Tile Cleaners is a straightforward process. Begin by visiting our website and selecting the location nearest to you. Once you have chosen the appropriate location, you can either email the local office, providing your contact information, or directly call the phone number of your local Tile Cleaners representative. By initiating contact through either of these methods, you can easily schedule an estimate and take the first step toward obtaining our services.

In the majority of cases, Tile Cleaners® in $custom_city provides free quotes over the phone. However, there are situations where it may be necessary for us to assess the work that needs to be done before providing a quote. This determination is based on factors such as the size and complexity of the project. Rest assured, our team will communicate clearly whether an on-site evaluation is required and guide you accordingly. Our goal is to ensure transparency and provide accurate pricing information for your specific cleaning needs.

In the majority of cases, Tile Cleaners® can provide an approximate quote or estimate over the phone within a time frame of 5 to 10 minutes. We understand the importance of efficiency and aim to promptly provide you with pricing information for your project. Additionally, on the day the job is scheduled, our team will inspect the area to be serviced and confirm the quote, ensuring your final approval before commencing any work. This approach allows us to maintain transparency and ensures that you are comfortable with the agreed-upon pricing before we begin the cleaning process.

Once you have made the decision to proceed with our grout work, Tile Cleaners® typically schedules appointments within a timeframe of 2 to 10 days. We strive to accommodate your needs efficiently and aim to provide prompt service. In many cases, the actual work on your grout can be completed on the same day that we come out to confirm the quote, ensuring a seamless and timely process. Our goal is to minimize any delays and complete the job promptly while maintaining the highest standard of quality.

Tile Cleaning utilizes a low-pressure, hot water system for grout cleaning. Our advanced vapor system heats water to high temperatures, reaching up to 320 degrees. This vapor technology effectively cleans your grout by utilizing tap water, without the need for harsh chemicals. The process leaves your grout in a pH-neutral state, ensuring a thorough and environmentally friendly cleaning outcome. Our focus is on utilizing innovative and safe methods to achieve optimal results while maintaining the integrity of your grout.

In certain cleaning scenarios, the use of a chemical cleaner may be necessary as a pre-treatment. However, it's important to note that the chemical cleaner employed by Tile Cleaning contains no acid or bleach, as these ingredients can cause long-term damage to your grout. Following the application of the chemical solution, our vapor technology is utilized to remove discoloration and eliminate any residual chemical residue from the grout joints. It is worth mentioning that in cases where the grout is old and significantly discolored, there might be instances where we need to use chemicals that contain a minimal amount of bleach or acid. Rest assured, our aim is always to prioritize the safety and preservation of your grout while achieving the best possible cleaning outcomes.

The utilization of vapor cleaning during the grout maintenance process offers several advantages. One notable benefit is that the vapor cleaning process effectively eliminates the grout cleaner from the pores of the joint, ensuring thorough cleaning. Additionally, this method leaves the grout in a pH neutral state, avoiding any potential imbalance or damage to the grout. By employing vapor cleaning, Tile Cleaning can achieve deep and comprehensive cleaning while maintaining the integrity and balance of your grout.

The use of grout cleaner and vapor cleaning offers distinct advantages over simply scrubbing the grout with a brush and mopping it clean. When grout is only mopped after applying cleaner, the excess cleaner is not fully absorbed, resulting in residue left within the pores of the grout. This residual cleaner can disrupt the pH level of the floor, potentially creating an environment that attracts dirt and grime even after the cleaning process is complete. In contrast, the vapor cleaning method ensures the complete removal of the cleaner from the grout, leaving it in a pH neutral state. This approach promotes a thorough and long-lasting clean, minimizing the risk of residue buildup and maintaining the cleanliness and integrity of your grout over time.

Tile Cleaning may use a truck-mounted cleaning machine in certain situations, taking into account the size and requirements of the job. The equipment is capable of generating pressure ranging from 1500 to 3000 psi. However, it is important to note that we adjust the pressure according to the specific type of tile and grout being treated. This precautionary measure is crucial to prevent any potential damage. Using the incorrect pressure can result in the formation of small cracks in the grout joint or exacerbate existing cracks. By carefully adjusting the pressure, we ensure that the cleaning process is effective while safeguarding the integrity of your grout and tile surfaces.

Grout recoloring involves applying a specialized grout colorant to alter or enhance the existing color of your grout. This process allows for a complete transformation of the grout's color, offering the opportunity to change its appearance and achieve a desired aesthetic effect.

There are several reasons why you might consider recoloring your grout. Firstly, if your current grout is heavily soiled and resistant to cleaning, recoloring can provide a solution to improve its appearance. Additionally, grout can fade over time, especially when exposed to high foot traffic or prolonged sunlight exposure. Recoloring the grout allows you to eliminate color variations and restore a consistent and uniform look to your tiled surfaces. By opting for grout recoloring, you can revitalize the overall appearance of your grout, achieving a cleaner and more visually appealing result.

Absolutely! Grout recoloring offers the flexibility to lighten or darken the color of your existing grout. Whether you prefer a lighter shade or a darker tone, the process allows for a wide range of color options. You can choose to match the new grout color closely to your existing grout or opt for an entirely different color to complement any changes in your decor. The versatility of grout recoloring ensures that you have the freedom to achieve the desired look and feel for your tiled surfaces.

After undergoing the recoloring process, your grout will appear refreshed and devoid of any color variations. The color sealer utilized is a penetrating type, which allows it to bond with the silica in the grout joint while maintaining the grout's natural appearance. Unlike some topical color sealers available in the market that can make the grout look painted, the penetrating color sealer ensures a more authentic and seamless result. With the recoloring process, you can expect your grout to have a revitalized and uniform look, as if it were brand new.

Concrete sealers typically have a relatively quick drying time, and they are often touch-dry within approximately 4 hours. This applies to both penetrating sealers and topical sealers. Penetrating sealers usually reach full curing within 24 hours, while topical sealers may take up to 48 hours to fully dry. It is important to allow sufficient time for the sealer to dry and cure properly before subjecting the concrete surface to heavy use or exposure to water. By following the recommended drying times, you can ensure the effectiveness and longevity of the concrete sealer.

The duration required to complete concrete polishing varies depending on the size of the area. For larger projects, such as expansive floors, it may take up to three days to complete the polishing process. On the other hand, polishing a smaller surface like a bench-top can typically be finished within half a day. Professional services like Tile Cleaners® strive to minimize disruptions by aiming to complete the work within the same day, ensuring your home or business experiences as little interruption as possible.

During the concrete polishing process, our procedures prioritize minimizing dust production by utilizing water. While polishing can create a slurry, we employ high-quality equipment and our technicians have years of expertise in managing the extraction of this slurry. As a result, once the polishing is completed, your surfaces will be left in their optimal condition, ensuring they are in the best possible state.

Sealing concrete surfaces is essential due to various factors that can cause deterioration and a decline in their appearance. Concrete is exposed to traffic, UV rays, moisture, rain, chemicals, and impurities like oil, gas, grease, acids, and salt, which can lead to common issues such as cracking, pitting, scaling, spalling, delamination, dusting, discoloration, efflorescence, and salt damage. By applying a concrete sealer, you can protect the surface and enjoy numerous maintenance benefits. High-quality sealers like Australia's Deepshield™ deep impregnating sealers provide effective protection and help maintain the integrity and aesthetics of the concrete surfaces.

No, it is not possible to apply penetrating concrete sealers over existing topical sealers. Topical sealers create a membrane or film on the surface of the concrete, forming a barrier that prevents the penetrating sealers from effectively absorbing into the concrete. Therefore, before applying a penetrating sealer, it is necessary to remove any existing topical sealer to ensure proper penetration and adhesion of the new sealer. This preparation step ensures that the penetrating sealer can effectively provide the desired protection and enhance the durability of the concrete surface.

To maintain the condition of your polished concrete, it is recommended to clean it using a pH-neutral cleaner. This type of cleaner is gentle and does not damage the polished surface. After applying the pH-neutral cleaner, rinse the area with clean water to remove any residue. In case of spills, it is advisable to promptly clean them up using clean water. Additionally, to eliminate dust and keep the surface clean, using a microfiber mop is recommended. This method of cleaning helps to preserve the polished appearance of the concrete while ensuring that it remains free from dirt and debris.

You will know it's time to have your concrete floors stripped, cleaned and sealed once they begin to appear dull or "matte" even after you have given them an efficient regular clean. If you notice that your concrete surfaces are staining easily, it's a good indication that your previous sealer is wearing off and your concrete floors will need to be resealed immediately to prevent permanent staining.

Yes, the concrete stripping and sealing process conducted by Tile Cleaners® is safe.

Stripping concrete floors is essential if you desire the cleanest and most visually appealing results. By entrusting the task to professionals, they can effectively remove as much of the old sealer as possible. This initial step paves the way for a thorough cleaning process before applying a new sealer. The end result is a fresh and immaculate polished concrete floor that showcases its natural beauty to the fullest extent. With professional stripping, cleaning, and sealing, your concrete floors can achieve their optimal appearance and maintain their pristine condition.

Concrete strip and seal is a process that involves removing the existing coating or sealant from the concrete floor and then resealing it. Over time, concrete floors can become dull and lose their lustrous appearance, giving them an aged and unattractive look. By performing a strip and seal procedure, the old coating is stripped off, and a new sealant is applied, bringing back the beautiful and glossy appearance of the polished concrete. This process not only restores the aesthetic appeal of the floor but also eliminates the need for costly floor replacement. By opting for concrete strip and seal, you can revitalize your concrete floors and give them a fresh, new look without the expense of installing new flooring.

When our professional team arrives to reseal your polished concrete floors, they will provide you with a detailed explanation of the entire process, ensuring complete transparency. The process begins with stripping any existing sealer that may have been applied previously. Next, the polished concrete is thoroughly cleaned and neutralized to eliminate any dust, residue, or contaminants that could interfere with the new sealer. Once the floor is dry, a new sealer is applied and allowed to set. This sealing process not only rejuvenates the appearance of the concrete, making it look new again, but also provides essential protection and makes maintenance easier. By following this comprehensive process, our team ensures that your polished concrete floors receive optimal treatment, resulting in a refreshed and well-protected surface.

The recommended frequency for sealing polished concrete floors depends on factors such as the type of sealer used and the amount of foot traffic the floors are exposed to. Australia's Deepshield™ range of deep impregnating water-based sealers, for instance, offers long-term benefits, with Deepshield™ Gold providing protection for up to 15 years. On the other hand, topical sealers typically have a lifespan of around 3 years. However, it is important to note that high foot traffic or severe weather conditions, especially for outdoor concrete, can potentially shorten the lifespan of the sealer. Additionally, the condition of the surface plays a role in determining when resealing is necessary. If you notice patchy areas or the floors are staining easily, it may be a sign that resealing is needed. Feel free to contact us for further assistance and any inquiries you may have regarding sealing your polished concrete floors.

If concrete floors are not sealed, they are more susceptible to damage. Spills of oily or harsh substances can easily penetrate the surface and leave permanent stains that are difficult to remove using regular cleaning methods. We strongly advise sealing your concrete surfaces to maintain their fresh appearance, provide protection against permanent staining, and prevent potential accidental damage. By sealing your concrete floors, they will retain their optimal condition for a longer period and will be easier to clean and maintain, offering convenience and peace of mind.

The optimal time to seal your concrete is right after installation to provide immediate protection against staining and damage. As for determining if your concrete surfaces require sealing, there are a couple of indicators to look out for. Firstly, if you notice patchy areas on the floor where the sealant has worn off or is uneven, it is a clear sign that resealing is needed. Additionally, if your concrete is becoming more susceptible to staining and is no longer repelling liquids as effectively as before, it is a good indication that it is time to apply a fresh coat of sealer. By addressing these signs promptly, you can ensure that your concrete remains adequately protected and maintains its optimal appearance.

Efflorescence can occur on concrete and other porous surfaces when water in the concrete brings salts to the surface as it evaporates. This process leaves behind a whitish coating that can mar the finish of the concrete. Sealing the concrete with a high-quality, water-resistant sealer can help mitigate efflorescence to some extent. However, it is important to address the underlying issue causing the water penetration, such as a water pipe leak or damaged grout, in order to fully prevent efflorescence. By sealing the concrete and resolving any sources of water infiltration, you can minimize the occurrence of efflorescence and help maintain the aesthetic integrity of your concrete surfaces.

Certainly! Tile Cleaners has the expertise to remove efflorescence from concrete surfaces. Efflorescence, which is the buildup of salts, can be effectively treated using specialized cleaning techniques and efflorescence removers. It is crucial to address the underlying cause of efflorescence, which is often a leak behind the concrete or damaged grout lines. While efflorescence can be removed, it is essential to resolve the root cause to prevent its recurrence. By engaging professional services, you can have the efflorescence removed and ensure that steps are taken to rectify the underlying issue, helping to restore the appearance of your concrete surfaces.

To maintain the fresh and new appearance of your concrete surfaces, Tile Cleaners® recommends regular cleaning using a mild detergent. This weekly cleaning routine helps remove dirt and grime from the concrete surface, keeping it looking clean and well-maintained. It is important to note that strong detergents with high acidity or alkalinity can potentially affect the sealer applied to the concrete. Therefore, it is strongly advised to use mild detergents and pH-neutral substances when cleaning the surfaces. By following these maintenance guidelines, you can effectively preserve the pristine condition of your concrete and ensure its long-lasting beauty.

Tile Cleaning applies a pricing structure based on the square meterage of each separate room when providing stripping and sealing services for concrete surfaces. You can find a detailed price list on the Tile Cleaning website, allowing you to review and assess the costs associated with the desired services. Prior to commencing the work, the team will conduct individual room measurements, confirm the scope of work, and provide a comprehensive cost breakdown to ensure transparency and clarity. By following this approach, Tile Cleaning aims to provide a clear understanding of the pricing structure and deliver accurate cost estimates to their valued customers.

To accurately measure the size of a concreted area, we recommend measuring each area separately. The process is straightforward: multiply the width of the area by its length. For example, if you have a room that is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide, the total square meterage would be calculated as 3 meters multiplied by 2 meters, resulting in 6 square meters in total. By measuring each concreted area individually using this method, you can ensure accurate calculations of square meterage for pricing and other purposes.

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 for the concrete sealing process, it is recommended to remove all furniture and items from the floor area. By ensuring that the floor is clear and free of any obstacles, it allows the Tile Cleaning team to access the entire surface easily and carry out the sealing process efficiently. Removing furniture and items beforehand also helps to protect them from any potential damage during the sealing process. By following this simple preparation step, you can help ensure a smooth and effective concrete sealing experience.

Tile Sealing

All Porous tiles should be sealed. Sealing your tiles helps prevent & reduce staining by keeping most stains suspended at the surface. Sealing creates a barrier that provides protection against chemical attack, deterioration and contamination. Sealing is the first important step towards protecting your investment against stains.


Sealing tiles and grout is essential to protect them from various factors that can cause deterioration and impact their appearance. Foot traffic, UV rays, moisture, chemicals, oil, grease, acids, and salt are among the culprits that can lead to problems like cracking, pitting, scaling, spalling, delamination, dusting, discoloration, efflorescence, and salt damage. To address these issues effectively, it is recommended to seal your tiles and grout using high-quality products like Australia's Deepshield™ deep impregnating range of sealers. Sealing provides excellent maintenance benefits by preventing unsightly stains, safeguarding against discoloration, and ensuring that your tiled floors maintain their optimal condition for an extended period. Applying a reliable sealer enhances the longevity and appearance of your tiles and grout, allowing them to withstand the test of time while preserving their visual appeal.

The lifespan of a sealer before reapplication is influenced by the type of sealer used. Topical sealers typically provide protection for approximately 3 years before requiring reapplication. In contrast, impregnating sealers are more durable and can last up to 15 years or even a lifetime when applied to vertical surfaces. However, areas with high foot traffic or frequent use may necessitate more frequent inspections and resealing to ensure ongoing protection. Conducting a water absorption test can help assess the porosity of the surface and aid in selecting a sealer with longer-lasting durability. It is advisable to refer to the guidelines provided by the manufacturer and consult professionals to determine the specific reapplication schedule suitable for your tiles and grout.

If the tiles themselves cannot be sealed, it is possible and highly recommended to seal only the grout lines. This is particularly important if the grout lines are light in color. Sealing the grout lines provides several benefits, including protection against stains and discoloration. By applying a sealer to the grout lines, you create a barrier that prevents dirt, moisture, and other contaminants from penetrating the grout, making it easier to clean and maintain. Additionally, sealing the grout lines helps to extend the lifespan of the grout, reducing the need for costly regrouting in the future. Therefore, focusing on sealing the grout lines is a practical and effective approach to preserving the appearance and durability of your tiled surfaces when the tiles themselves cannot be sealed.

The recommended frequency for fully resealing tiles can vary depending on factors such as the type and quality of the sealer used and the expected lifespan of the sealer. It is advised to regularly assess the condition of the tiles and evaluate the effectiveness of the existing sealer. If there are visible signs of wear, staining, or diminished protection, it may be necessary to undertake a complete resealing process. The specific timing for resealing will depend on these factors, and it is important to consistently monitor the tile's condition and consult the manufacturer's guidelines or sealer recommendations to determine the appropriate intervals for full resealing.

The drying time required for a sealer to fully cure can vary depending on the specific product being used. In general, most sealers have a relatively quick drying time, with the surface becoming touch-dry within approximately 4 hours. This applies to both penetrating sealers and topical sealers. Penetrating sealers typically complete their curing process within 24 hours, while topical sealers may take up to 48 hours to fully dry. It is crucial to carefully follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer regarding the recommended drying time. Doing so ensures that the sealer properly sets and provides the intended level of protection. Adhering to the specified drying time will help guarantee the longevity and effectiveness of the sealer on your tiles.

No, it is not possible to apply penetrating sealers over existing topical sealers. This is because topical sealers create a barrier on the surface of the material, preventing effective absorption of the penetrating sealer. To achieve the desired results, it is necessary to remove any existing topical sealer before applying a penetrating sealer. By removing the topical sealer, you allow the penetrating sealer to penetrate the material and provide the intended protection and benefits. Removing the topical sealer ensures the maximum effectiveness of the penetrating sealer and optimizes the overall sealing process.

To maintain a sealed surface effectively, it is recommended to use a pH neutral cleaner. This type of cleaner effectively removes dirt and grime without causing damage to the sealant. In case of spills, it is crucial to clean them promptly using clean water to prevent potential staining or residue. For regular maintenance and dust removal, using a microfiber mop is highly advised. The fine fibers of a microfiber mop efficiently capture dust particles, ensuring a clean and dust-free surface. By following these practices, you can help preserve the quality and appearance of your sealed surfaces.

When a surface appears dull or matte, despite regular cleaning, it may indicate the need for cleaning, stripping, and resealing. This loss of luster suggests that the previous sealer has worn off and is no longer providing adequate protection. Another indicator is an increased susceptibility to staining, as the surface is no longer effectively shielded. Recognizing these signs is crucial, as it allows for timely action to prevent permanent staining and to restore the surface's visual appeal. By addressing these indications promptly, through proper cleaning, stripping, and resealing, the surface can regain its beauty and maintain long-term durability.

During the process of stripping and sealing surfaces, safety should be a top priority. Professional tile cleaning services, like Tile Cleaners®, understand the importance of safety and employ measures to mitigate potential risks. They use high-quality water-based products and advanced cleaning machinery to ensure effective cleaning solutions while safeguarding the integrity of the surfaces being treated. By prioritizing safety, these services provide a reliable and secure experience for their customers.

The purpose of floor stripping is to achieve the cleanest and most visually appealing results for your floors. When professionals perform this task, their objective is to meticulously remove the old sealer, ensuring a thorough process. This stripping sets the foundation for an effective cleaning procedure, followed by the application of a fresh sealer. By following this meticulous approach, the surfaces are revitalized, resulting in a pristine and immaculate appearance. Ultimately, the floor stripping process aims to deliver the freshest and cleanest outcome for your floors.

When discussing floors, the term "strip and seal" refers to a procedure where the existing coating or sealer on the floor surface is removed, and a new sealant is applied. Over time, floors can become dull and lose their shine, diminishing their visual appeal. By undergoing the strip and seal process, it is possible to revitalize the floors and bring them back to their original condition.

Tile Cleaners® suggests cleaning the tiles on a weekly basis using a mild detergent. This gentle cleaning agent will effectively remove any dirt or grime from the travertine surface without compromising the integrity of the sealant. It is important to avoid using strong detergents that contain harsh acids or alkalis, as they can potentially damage the sealer. Opting for mild detergents and pH-neutral substances is highly recommended to ensure the longevity of both the tiles and the sealant. For optimal protection against staining, we strongly advise sealing your travertine tiles with one of our highest quality sealers. This added layer of protection will safeguard your tiles and preserve their natural beauty for an extended period.

Tile Cleaners® follow a pricing model based on the square meter measurement for each individual room when charging for sealing travertine tiles. You can find a detailed price list on the Tile Cleaners® website for your reference. Prior to commencing the project, the team will accurately measure each room, discuss the scope of work to be undertaken, and provide you with a comprehensive cost breakdown to ensure transparency and clarity.

To accurately measure the area of travertine that requires sealing, it is best to measure each individual area separately. The process involves multiplying the width of the area by its length. For instance, if you have a room that is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide, the total area would be calculated as 3 meters multiplied by 2 meters, resulting in 6 square meters (6m²). This method ensures precise measurements for determining the amount of travertine that needs to be sealed.

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.

When we talk about a "sealer," we are referring to a liquid or carrier that contains a resin. This substance is applied to porous surfaces, whether they are natural stone or man-made materials. The primary function of a sealer is to provide protection against staining caused by water and/or oil-based materials. By applying the sealer, you can prevent these substances from penetrating and staining the surface. Additionally, a sealer can enhance the overall cleaning results by making it easier to clean and maintain the surfaces effectively.

Sealing sandstone tiles is a crucial step in ensuring their long-term quality and preventing potential damage. Unlike polishes, sealers are specifically formulated to create a protective barrier that prevents liquids and dirt particles from penetrating the porous nature of the natural stone. It is highly recommended to have your sandstone tiles sealed, especially during the initial installation process, as this initial seal can provide effective protection for up to 15 years. By promptly contacting professionals to seal your sandstone floors after installation, you can safeguard them against accidental permanent damage, preserving their beauty and durability for years to come.

Additionally, this sealer eliminates the slipperiness that can be associated with other sealers, ensuring a safer surface for walking on the sandstone pavers. Trust our Impregnating Penetrating Water Based Sealer to effectively safeguard your sandstone pavers while preserving their natural beauty.

To determine if your sandstone floors require sealing, Tile Cleaning recommends conducting a simple "water test." This widely-used method in the stone industry can help assess the need for sealing. Start by placing a few drops of water on the stone surface and allowing it to sit for approximately 10 to 30 minutes. Afterwards, wipe the water dry. If your sandstone did not darken during this process, it indicates that your floors are adequately sealed and do not require additional sealing. However, if the water droplets caused darkening or were absorbed by the stone, it signifies that your sandstone is susceptible to water penetration, indicating the need for sealing.

When it comes to sealing sandstone tiles, all our products at Tile Cleaners® are water-based. We typically avoid using solvent-based sealers, except in specific cases where it is the only suitable option. The application of our sealer will not impact the texture of your sandstone tiles in any manner. It is designed to preserve the natural texture and appearance of the tiles while providing essential protection against staining. Rest assured, our sealer will help maintain the desired lustrous and natural finish of your sandstone tiles.

When our professional team arrives to seal your sandstone floors, they will guide you through each step of the process to ensure complete transparency. The first step involves stripping any previous sealer, if present. Next, the sandstone is meticulously cleaned and neutralized to remove dust, residues, and any other factors that may impact the effectiveness of the new sealer. Once the sandstone floor is dry, a new sealer is applied and allowed to set. The result is a rejuvenated appearance for your sandstone floors, which not only looks new but also gains protection. Additionally, the sealed surface becomes easier to maintain, providing long-lasting benefits for your sandstone flooring.

The duration for resealing sandstone floors can vary depending on the size of the area being sealed. On average, most jobs take approximately 4 to 8 hours to complete. At Tile Cleaners®, we aim to provide efficient service, which is why we typically perform both the cleaning and resealing processes on the same day. This approach eliminates the need for multiple appointments, ensuring a hassle-free experience for our customers.

After the sandstone tiles have been sealed, they typically take around 4 hours to become touch dry. However, it is important to note that the sealer requires approximately 24 hours to fully cure. During this curing period, it is recommended to avoid placing any heavy objects, such as furniture, on the tiles or grout. To ensure the best results and longevity of the seal, it is advised to wait at least 24 hours before placing any items back onto the sealed sandstone tiles.

The lifespan of a sealer before reapplication is influenced by the type of sealer used. Topical sealers typically provide protection for approximately 3 years before requiring reapplication.

However, areas with high foot traffic or frequent use may necessitate more frequent inspections and resealing to ensure ongoing protection. Conducting a water absorption test can help assess the porosity of the surface and aid in selecting a sealer with longer-lasting durability. It is advisable to refer to the guidelines provided by the manufacturer and consult professionals to determine the specific reapplication schedule suitable for your tiles and grout.

When using Deepshield™ Impregnating Penetrating Sealer, there is no impact on the slipperiness of your sandstone floors. This sealer is designed to penetrate the top layer of the sandstone, preserving its natural slip resistance. However, it's worth noting that applying a Topical Sealer may potentially make the sandstone floors slippery when wet. To maintain both the appearance and slip resistance of your sandstone surfaces, it is advisable to opt for a high-quality, invisible, and fully breathable impregnating sealer. This type of sealer ensures that your sandstone is protected from damaging moisture while retaining its original slip resistance.

Acid etching refers to the process where acidic substances come into contact with sandstone tiles, causing them to corrode or be eaten away. Sandstone is particularly vulnerable to acid attacks, and protecting it from such damage can be challenging. The most effective way to safeguard your sandstone tiles is to promptly seal them and clean up any spills immediately. Given the high porosity of stone-based tiles, sealing is essential to provide protection against future acid attacks and liquid spills. By sealing your sandstone tiles, you create a barrier that helps prevent the penetration of acids and other damaging substances, thereby minimizing the risk of etching and preserving the integrity of your sandstone surfaces.

While Tile Cleaners®'s color enhancing sealer can potentially assist in concealing scratches on your sandstone floors, it's important to note that it cannot guarantee a complete restoration to their original condition. The Deepshield™ Penetrating Color Enhancing Sealer is designed to darken the sandstone tiles by up to 20% and may help camouflage etches, ultimately revitalizing the appearance of your sandstone floors. However, the extent to which scratches and etches can be hidden or diminished will depend on their severity and the overall condition of the tiles. For the best outcome, it is recommended to consult with professionals who can assess your specific situation and provide appropriate guidance.

To maintain the fresh appearance of your sealed sandstone tiles, Tile Cleaners® suggests regular cleaning on a weekly basis using a mild detergent. This will help remove any dirt or grime from the surface of the sandstone while ensuring that the sealer remains unaffected. It is crucial to avoid using strong detergents that have high acidity or alkalinity as they may compromise the integrity of the sealer. Instead, opt for mild detergents and pH-neutral substances for safe and effective cleaning. Furthermore, the best way to protect your sandstone tiles from staining and maintain their pristine condition is to seal them with one of our top-quality sealers. Sealing provides the optimal safeguard against potential stains and enhances the longevity of your sandstone tiles.

Over time, vinyl flooring can become dull and lose its shine, resulting in an aged and unappealing appearance. By performing a strip and seal procedure, the vinyl floor can be revitalized, restoring its attractive and glossy look. This process eliminates the need for expensive floor replacement and offers a cost-effective solution to enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of the area.

When our professional team arrives to reseal your vinyl/lino floors, they will provide you with a step-by-step explanation of the entire process. Firstly, the floor will undergo a stripping procedure to ensure complete removal of the old sealer. This step is crucial to create a clean surface. Next, the floor will be thoroughly cleaned and neutralized, removing any dust, residue, or contaminants that may impact the new sealer. Once the floor is dry, the new sealer will be applied and allowed to set. The result will be a rejuvenated floor that not only looks new but also offers enhanced protection and easier maintenance. By following this comprehensive process, we ensure that your vinyl/lino floors receive optimal sealing treatment, leaving them in excellent condition.

The time required to reseal vinyl or linoleum floors can vary based on the size of the area being sealed. On average, most projects are completed within 4 to 8 hours. At our company, we prioritize efficiency by aiming to complete the stripping, cleaning, and resealing processes in a single day. This approach eliminates the need for multiple appointments and ensures a smooth experience for our customers. Our dedicated team works diligently to complete the resealing process within a reasonable timeframe, allowing you to enjoy your revitalized vinyl or linoleum floors as soon as possible.

Sealing refers to the application of a substance, known as a sealer, to a porous surface in order to prevent the penetration of liquids through that surface. The primary purpose of sealing is to create a protective barrier that acts as a permanent shield between the treated surface and any liquids it may come into contact with. While sealers can dry to a shiny finish when applied to floors, they are not meant to be burnished or polished to a high shine like a polish. Over time, the sealer may wear off if subjected to heavy use, but its primary function is to provide long-lasting protection against liquid penetration. In some cases, a sealer may be followed by the application of a polish for additional aesthetic enhancement, but the sealing process typically occurs first to establish the protective barrier.

Having your vinyl/lino floors sealed is crucial for several reasons. Sealers are specifically formulated to create a barrier that prevents liquids and dirt particles from penetrating the surface of the vinyl. When vinyl flooring is initially installed, it is recommended to apply a sealant, and this initial seal can provide long-lasting protection for many years, particularly when combined with regular polishing. By contacting us soon after your floors are installed, we can ensure timely protection to prevent any accidental permanent damage. Our sealing services will help safeguard your vinyl/lino floors, keeping them in optimal condition and minimizing the risk of stains, damage, and wear.

The lifespan of the sealer applied to vinyl/lino floors can vary depending on various factors. Generally, the sealer should be reapplied when the coating starts to wear away in certain areas, indicating that the protection is diminishing. It's important to note that terms like sealers, polishes, and finishes are sometimes used interchangeably, and certain polishes may offer sealing properties while some products labeled as finishers can actually act as sealants. When purchasing products, it is crucial to carefully inspect their properties and ensure they meet your specific sealing requirements. Regular inspections and maintenance can help determine when resealing is necessary to maintain the durability and protection of your vinyl/lino floors.

Concrete sealers typically have a relatively quick drying time, and they are often touch-dry within approximately 4 hours. This applies to both penetrating sealers and topical sealers. Penetrating sealers usually reach full curing within 24 hours, while topical sealers may take up to 48 hours to fully dry. It is important to allow sufficient time for the sealer to dry and cure properly before subjecting the concrete surface to heavy use or exposure to water. By following the recommended drying times, you can ensure the effectiveness and longevity of the concrete sealer.

Sealing concrete surfaces is essential due to various factors that can cause deterioration and a decline in their appearance. Concrete is exposed to traffic, UV rays, moisture, rain, chemicals, and impurities like oil, gas, grease, acids, and salt, which can lead to common issues such as cracking, pitting, scaling, spalling, delamination, dusting, discoloration, efflorescence, and salt damage. By applying a concrete sealer, you can protect the surface and enjoy numerous maintenance benefits. High-quality sealers like Australia's Deepshield™ deep impregnating sealers provide effective protection and help maintain the integrity and aesthetics of the concrete surfaces.

No, it is not possible to apply penetrating concrete sealers over existing topical sealers. Topical sealers create a membrane or film on the surface of the concrete, forming a barrier that prevents the penetrating sealers from effectively absorbing into the concrete. Therefore, before applying a penetrating sealer, it is necessary to remove any existing topical sealer to ensure proper penetration and adhesion of the new sealer. This preparation step ensures that the penetrating sealer can effectively provide the desired protection and enhance the durability of the concrete surface.

To maintain the condition of your polished concrete, it is recommended to clean it using a pH-neutral cleaner. This type of cleaner is gentle and does not damage the polished surface. After applying the pH-neutral cleaner, rinse the area with clean water to remove any residue. In case of spills, it is advisable to promptly clean them up using clean water. Additionally, to eliminate dust and keep the surface clean, using a microfiber mop is recommended. This method of cleaning helps to preserve the polished appearance of the concrete while ensuring that it remains free from dirt and debris.

Concrete is a porous material that readily absorbs liquids. In freeze-thaw climates, the expansion of frozen liquids can destroy the surface of unsealed concrete. Oil, salt, fertiliser, and other household chemicals can discolour and damage unsealed concrete.

You will know it's time to have your concrete floors stripped, cleaned and sealed once they begin to appear dull or "matte" even after you have given them an efficient regular clean. If you notice that your concrete surfaces are staining easily, it's a good indication that your previous sealer is wearing off and your concrete floors will need to be resealed immediately to prevent permanent staining.

Stripping concrete floors is essential if you desire the cleanest and most visually appealing results. By entrusting the task to professionals, they can effectively remove as much of the old sealer as possible. This initial step paves the way for a thorough cleaning process before applying a new sealer. The end result is a fresh and immaculate polished concrete floor that showcases its natural beauty to the fullest extent. With professional stripping, cleaning, and sealing, your concrete floors can achieve their optimal appearance and maintain their pristine condition.

Concrete strip and seal is a process that involves removing the existing coating or sealant from the concrete floor and then resealing it. Over time, concrete floors can become dull and lose their lustrous appearance, giving them an aged and unattractive look. By performing a strip and seal procedure, the old coating is stripped off, and a new sealant is applied, bringing back the beautiful and glossy appearance of the polished concrete. This process not only restores the aesthetic appeal of the floor but also eliminates the need for costly floor replacement. By opting for concrete strip and seal, you can revitalize your concrete floors and give them a fresh, new look without the expense of installing new flooring.

When our professional team arrives to reseal your polished concrete floors, they will provide you with a detailed explanation of the entire process, ensuring complete transparency. The process begins with stripping any existing sealer that may have been applied previously. Next, the polished concrete is thoroughly cleaned and neutralized to eliminate any dust, residue, or contaminants that could interfere with the new sealer. Once the floor is dry, a new sealer is applied and allowed to set. This sealing process not only rejuvenates the appearance of the concrete, making it look new again, but also provides essential protection and makes maintenance easier. By following this comprehensive process, our team ensures that your polished concrete floors receive optimal treatment, resulting in a refreshed and well-protected surface.

The recommended frequency for sealing polished concrete floors depends on factors such as the type of sealer used and the amount of foot traffic the floors are exposed to. Australia's Deepshield™ range of deep impregnating water-based sealers, for instance, offers long-term benefits, with Deepshield™ Gold providing protection for up to 15 years. On the other hand, topical sealers typically have a lifespan of around 3 years. However, it is important to note that high foot traffic or severe weather conditions, especially for outdoor concrete, can potentially shorten the lifespan of the sealer. Additionally, the condition of the surface plays a role in determining when resealing is necessary. If you notice patchy areas or the floors are staining easily, it may be a sign that resealing is needed. Feel free to contact us for further assistance and any inquiries you may have regarding sealing your polished concrete floors.

Not sealing concrete floors can lead to various potential consequences. Without proper sealing, the surface of the concrete is susceptible to damage. Spills of oily or harsh substances can penetrate the pores of the concrete, resulting in permanent stains that cannot be removed through regular domestic cleaning methods. By not sealing your concrete surfaces, you risk permanent staining and difficulty in maintaining the fresh look and feel of the floors. Sealing the concrete provides a protective barrier, preventing such staining and accidental damage in the future. It helps to preserve the appearance of the surfaces, keeping them in their best condition for a longer period and making maintenance easier and more convenient.

The optimal time to seal your concrete is right after installation to provide immediate protection against staining and damage. As for determining if your concrete surfaces require sealing, there are a couple of indicators to look out for. Firstly, if you notice patchy areas on the floor where the sealant has worn off or is uneven, it is a clear sign that resealing is needed. Additionally, if your concrete is becoming more susceptible to staining and is no longer repelling liquids as effectively as before, it is a good indication that it is time to apply a fresh coat of sealer. By addressing these signs promptly, you can ensure that your concrete remains adequately protected and maintains its optimal appearance.

Efflorescence can occur on concrete and other porous surfaces when water in the concrete brings salts to the surface as it evaporates. This process leaves behind a whitish coating that can mar the finish of the concrete. Sealing the concrete with a high-quality, water-resistant sealer can help mitigate efflorescence to some extent. However, it is important to address the underlying issue causing the water penetration, such as a water pipe leak or damaged grout, in order to fully prevent efflorescence. By sealing the concrete and resolving any sources of water infiltration, you can minimize the occurrence of efflorescence and help maintain the aesthetic integrity of your concrete surfaces.

Certainly! Tile Cleaners has the expertise to remove efflorescence from concrete surfaces. Efflorescence, which is the buildup of salts, can be effectively treated using specialized cleaning techniques and efflorescence removers. It is crucial to address the underlying cause of efflorescence, which is often a leak behind the concrete or damaged grout lines. While efflorescence can be removed, it is essential to resolve the root cause to prevent its recurrence. By engaging professional services, you can have the efflorescence removed and ensure that steps are taken to rectify the underlying issue, helping to restore the appearance of your concrete surfaces.

To maintain the fresh and new appearance of your concrete surfaces, Tile Cleaners® recommends regular cleaning using a mild detergent. This weekly cleaning routine helps remove dirt and grime from the concrete surface, keeping it looking clean and well-maintained. It is important to note that strong detergents with high acidity or alkalinity can potentially affect the sealer applied to the concrete. Therefore, it is strongly advised to use mild detergents and pH-neutral substances when cleaning the surfaces. By following these maintenance guidelines, you can effectively preserve the pristine condition of your concrete and ensure its long-lasting beauty.

Tile Cleaning applies a pricing structure based on the square meterage of each separate room when providing stripping and sealing services for concrete surfaces. You can find a detailed price list on the Tile Cleaning website, allowing you to review and assess the costs associated with the desired services. Prior to commencing the work, the team will conduct individual room measurements, confirm the scope of work, and provide a comprehensive cost breakdown to ensure transparency and clarity. By following this approach, Tile Cleaning aims to provide a clear understanding of the pricing structure and deliver accurate cost estimates to their valued customers.

To accurately measure the size of a concreted area, we recommend measuring each area separately. The process is straightforward: multiply the width of the area by its length. For example, if you have a room that is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide, the total square meterage would be calculated as 3 meters multiplied by 2 meters, resulting in 6 square meters in total. By measuring each concreted area individually using this method, you can ensure accurate calculations of square meterage for pricing and other purposes.

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 for the concrete sealing process, it is recommended to remove all furniture and items from the floor area. By ensuring that the floor is clear and free of any obstacles, it allows the Tile Cleaning team to access the entire surface easily and carry out the sealing process efficiently. Removing furniture and items beforehand also helps to protect them from any potential damage during the sealing process. By following this simple preparation step, you can help ensure a smooth and effective concrete sealing experience.

When we talk about a "sealer," we are referring to a liquid or carrier that contains a resin. This substance is applied to porous surfaces, whether they are natural stone or man-made materials. The primary function of a sealer is to provide protection against staining caused by water and/or oil-based materials. By applying the sealer, you can prevent these substances from penetrating and staining the surface. Additionally, a sealer can enhance the overall cleaning results by making it easier to clean and maintain the surfaces effectively.

Sealers are different from polishes and are actually designed to keep liquids and dirt particles from sinking into the natural stone. It is extremely important to have your Donnybrook Stone sealed. All Donnybrook Stone should be sealed when first installed; this initial seal can last up to 15 years. It is important to call us as soon as your Donnybrook Stone floors are installed so we can protect them before any accidental permanent damage occurs.

Yes, here at Tile Cleaners® we provide a variety of top quality sealers to seal your Donnybrook Stone, whether you choose to use an Impregnating Sealer or a Topical Sealer depending on your needs.

The best sealer to use for Donnybrook Stone pavers around the pool is our high quality Impregnating Penetrating Water Based Sealer that protects your stone to the core and eliminates the slipperiness factor other sealers can create with Donnybrook Stone pavers.

Tile Cleaners® advise a "water test". First you need to place a few drops of water on your stone and let it set for around 10 to 30 minutes then wipe it dry. If your stone did not darken, it means your Donnybrook Stone is perfectly sealed and does not require sealing, but if it has darkened, it means that the water was able to penetrate your stone and sealing is required.

All of our sealing products are water based, we do not apply solvent- based sealer except in certain cases where it is the only option. The sealer will not affect the texture of your Donnybrook Stone in any way; however, it will protect your Donnybrook Stone from staining and maintain that lustrous, natural finish you are looking for.

Absolutely, we provide color enhancing services specifically designed for travertine. The color enhancement process involves the application of a specialized compound that enriches and intensifies the natural appearance of the travertine. By applying the color enhancer, the tiles' tones and hues are deepened, bringing out the inherent beauty of the travertine material. This treatment imparts a subtle wet or low sheen finish, enhancing the overall visual appeal of your travertine surfaces. Our color enhancing services are aimed at highlighting the unique characteristics and enhancing the aesthetics of your travertine.

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

It all depends on the size of the area that we are sealing but most jobs take 4 - 8 hours to complete. We do cleaning and resealing in the same day so you don't have to fuss with more than one appointment.

It takes 4 hours to be touch dry and normally 24 hours for the sealer to fully cure, which is when you can put everything back into place. Nothing hard such as furniture can be moved on to the tiles and grout for at least 24 hours.

The lifespan of a sealer before reapplication is influenced by the type of sealer used. Topical sealers typically provide protection for approximately 3 years before requiring reapplication. In contrast, impregnating sealers are more durable and can last up to 15 years or even a lifetime when applied to vertical surfaces. However, areas with high foot traffic or frequent use may necessitate more frequent inspections and resealing to ensure ongoing protection. Conducting a water absorption test can help assess the porosity of the surface and aid in selecting a sealer with longer-lasting durability. It is advisable to refer to the guidelines provided by the manufacturer and consult professionals to determine the specific reapplication schedule suitable for your tiles and grout.

Deepshield™ Impregnating Penetrating Sealer does not alter the slipperiness of your Donnybrook Stone tiles' surface as the sealer penetrates the top layer of your Donnybrook Stone. Topical Sealer may result in your Donnybrook Stone floors becoming slippery when wet. To maintain the look and slip resistance of your Donnybrook Stone and to prevent damaging moisture from being trapped within the stone, it is recommended to seal your surfaces with a high quality, invisible, fully breathable impregnating sealer.

Any acidic substance is harmful for your Donnybrook Stone, they can be etched (eaten/corroded) easily and sealing against acid attack is very difficult. The best way to protect your Donnybrook Stone tiles from acid attack is to seal and clean spills immediately. The high porosity of stone based tiles makes sealing a must in order to provide protection against future acid attack and liquid spillage.

To keep your Donnybrook Stone and grout looking new, Tile Cleaners® recommend cleaning each week with a mild detergent to remove any dirt or grime from the Donnybrook Stone surface. Strong detergents(strong acid or alkali) may affect the sealer, mild detergents and pH neutral substances are strongly recommended. Our best advice to protect your Donnybrook Stone is to seal them with one of our highest quality sealers. This is the best protection your Donnybrook Stone can receive against staining.

Tile Cleaners® charge per square meter for each separate Donnybrook Stone area. 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 Donnybrook Stone 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.

We strongly recommend sealing you limestone 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 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.

Efflorescence is a problem that limestone and most porous tiles can face. It's the tendency of the water in the limestone to bring salts from the stone to the surface as it evaporates.

The only way to avoid this problem is to seal your limestone tiles with one of our highest quality water resistant sealer's and to stop the source of the water that is penetrating the tiles, for example a water pipe leak or damaged grout.

Yes we can. Efflorescence is a build up of salts and can be removed with efflorescence removers and other specialised cleaning techniques. Efflorescence is typically caused by a leakage behind the limestone tiles or through damaged grout lines. The efflorescence can be removed but it is important the cause of the efflorescence is resoled.

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.

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 you want your marble floors to be their cleanest and looking their very best you need to have a professional remove as much of the old sealer as possible. Once this is done the cleaning process will be carried out and the sealer applied. You will have the freshest and cleanest possible marble floors once we are finished with the process.

Marble tiles stripping and sealing is simply the process of stripping the coating off the marble floor before resealing it. Marble 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 marble and eliminate the cost of laying new flooring.

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

The recommended frequency for sealing marble floors depends on various factors, including the type of sealer used and the level of foot traffic the tiles experience. In Australia, the Deepshield® range offers deep impregnating water-based sealers, with Deepshield Gold® specifically designed for denser materials like marble and granite, providing protection for up to 15 years. Topical sealers typically last around 3 years. However, if your marble floors endure heavy foot traffic or are exposed to severe weather conditions (in the case of outdoor tiles), the lifespan of the sealer may be shorter. It is also important to consider the condition of the tiles. If you notice patchy areas and an increased susceptibility to staining, it may indicate that resealing is necessary. For further inquiries, please don't hesitate to contact our team, who will be delighted to assist you.

Neglecting to seal marble floors can leave them vulnerable to damage. Spills containing oils or harsh substances have the potential to penetrate the porous surface of the marble, resulting in permanent stains that cannot be effectively removed through regular domestic cleaning methods. It is highly advisable to seal your marble tiles to preserve their natural appearance, protect them from permanent staining, and prevent accidental damage in the future. By sealing your marble floors, you can extend their longevity, maintain their pristine condition, and facilitate easier and more convenient maintenance.

The best time to seal marble floors is immediately after installation to provide proactive protection against accidental staining or damage. To determine if your marble floors require sealing, look for patchy areas on the floor where the sealant may have worn off. Additionally, if you notice that the marble tiles are becoming more susceptible to staining, it indicates that the existing sealer has deteriorated, and resealing is necessary to maintain the integrity and appearance of your marble floors. By addressing these signs promptly, you can ensure the long-term beauty and protection of your marble floors.

Efflorescence is a problem that marble and most porous tiles can face. It's the tendency of the water in the marble to bring salts from the stone to the surface as it evaporates. The water evaporates leaving the salts on the surface resulting in a whitish coating and ruining its finish. The only way to avoid this problem is to seal your marble tiles with one of our highest quality water resistant sealer's and to stop the source of the water that is penetrating the tiles, for example a water pipe leak or damaged grout.

Yes we can. Efflorescence is a build up of salts and can be removed with efflorescence removers and other specialised cleaning techniques. Efflorescence is typically caused by a leakage behind the marble tiles or through damaged grout lines. The efflorescence can be removed but it is important the cause of the efflorescence is resoled.

To maintain the fresh appearance of your marble tiles, it is recommended to follow a regular cleaning routine. Tile Cleaning suggests cleaning the tiles weekly using a damp microfiber cloth and a mild detergent to remove any dirt or grime from the surface. It is important to avoid using strong detergents that contain acid or alkali, as they may affect the sealer. Instead, opt for mild detergents and pH-neutral substances. Additionally, to provide an extra layer of protection against staining, Tile Cleaning advises sealing your marble tiles with one of their highest quality sealers. Sealing is considered the best form of protection for marble tiles, helping to preserve their appearance and prevent staining. By following these recommendations, you can keep your marble tiles looking new and enhance their longevity.

Feel free to reach out to us for further assistance with any inquiries related to sealing your granite tiles.

Not sealing granite floors can lead to potential issues due to their porous nature. Without proper sealing, the granite tiles can absorb liquids and be prone to staining from oily or harsh spills. These stains can penetrate the pores of the granite and become permanent, making them difficult to remove with regular domestic cleaning methods. By sealing your granite tiles, you can preserve their natural appearance, protect them against permanent staining, and prevent future accidental damage. Sealed granite floors maintain their beauty for a longer period and are easier to maintain and clean. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to seal your granite tiles to ensure they look their best and remain in optimal condition.

The ideal moment to seal your granite floors is right after their installation, as this helps prevent any potential accidental staining or damage. If you observe patchy sealed areas on your granite tiles or notice that they are becoming more prone to staining, these are clear indications that your granite floors are in need of sealing. By addressing these signs promptly, you can ensure the long-term protection and beauty of your granite floors.

Efflorescence can be a common issue with porous tiles like granite. It occurs when water in the granite carries salts to the surface as it evaporates. This process leaves behind a whitish coating and can damage the finish of the granite. To prevent efflorescence, it is recommended to seal your granite tiles with a high-quality water-resistant sealer. Additionally, identifying and addressing the source of water penetration, such as a water pipe leak or damaged grout, is crucial. By sealing the tiles and resolving any water-related issues, you can minimize the occurrence of efflorescence and maintain the quality and appearance of your granite floors.

Yes, we can remove the built-up efflorescence on your granite tiles. Efflorescence is a result of salt buildup and can be effectively treated using specialized cleaning techniques and efflorescence removers. It is important to note that efflorescence is often caused by underlying issues such as water leakage behind the granite tiles or damaged grout lines. Therefore, while we can remove the efflorescence, it is crucial to address and resolve the root cause to prevent its recurrence. Our team is experienced in identifying and addressing these underlying issues to provide a comprehensive solution for efflorescence removal and prevention.

Our vinyl cleaning services consist of three main steps: stripping the vinyl or linoleum floor, thoroughly cleaning it, and finally, re-sealing the floor.

Resealing vinyl floors is advised for multiple reasons. If your floors are aged, extensively scratched, or discolored, stripping away old sealers and applying a fresh, high-quality gloss finish can effectively restore their appearance. The process of resealing not only rejuvenates the look of the floors but also prolongs their lifespan. It diminishes the visibility of marks and scratches while establishing a protective barrier against dirt infiltration and abrasion. By opting for resealing, you can enhance the durability, enhance the visual appeal, and safeguard your vinyl or linoleum floors from future damage.

The recommended frequency for resealing vinyl or linoleum floors varies depending on factors like usage and foot traffic. Commercial floors, subject to heavy use, generally require resealing every one to two years to maintain their condition and protection. In residential settings, the frequency can range from every three to ten years, depending on the level of foot traffic and usage. Factors such as the quality of the sealer used and the application process also influence the longevity of the seal. Opting for professional sealing services ensures optimal results, extends the durability of the seal, and can potentially save time and money in the long term.

The vinyl strip and seal process involves the removal of the current coating or sealant from the vinyl floor, followed by resealing it. Over time, vinyl flooring can become dull and lose its shine, resulting in an aged and unappealing appearance. By performing a strip and seal procedure, the vinyl floor can be revitalized, restoring its attractive and glossy look. This process eliminates the need for expensive floor replacement and offers a cost-effective solution to enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of the area.

Our professional team will guide you through each step of the job, ensuring that you have a clear understanding of the process. Firstly, any previous sealer, if present, will be stripped off. Next, the vinyl or linoleum surface will undergo a thorough cleaning and neutralization process to remove dust, residue, and any other elements that may affect the new sealer. Once the surface is dry, a fresh layer of sealer will be applied and allowed to set. As a result, your newly sealed vinyl or linoleum floors will regain their appearance, receive protection, and become easier to maintain.

The time required to reseal vinyl or linoleum floors can vary based on the size of the area being sealed. On average, most projects are completed within 4 to 8 hours. At our company, we prioritize efficiency by aiming to complete the stripping, cleaning, and resealing processes in a single day. This approach eliminates the need for multiple appointments and ensures a smooth experience for our customers. Our dedicated team works diligently to complete the resealing process within a reasonable timeframe, allowing you to enjoy your revitalized vinyl or linoleum floors as soon as possible.

Stripping vinyl or linoleum floors with the help of a professional is crucial to achieve the cleanest and most aesthetically pleasing results. By stripping the wax from the surface, any accumulated grime and dirt can be effectively removed. Once the previous wax is stripped off, the surface undergoes a professional cleaning process, followed by the application of a high-quality sealer. This comprehensive approach ensures that your vinyl or linoleum floors attain a fresh and immaculate appearance.

It is recommended to strip residential vinyl or linoleum floors every 3-10 years, while commercial floors may require stripping every 1-3 years. However, it is important to note that excessive stripping can potentially damage the floors. To maintain a fresh appearance, regular buffing and polishing are preferable as they help preserve the floors' new look.

You will notice that it's time to strip and clean your floors when they appear dull and lackluster, even after undergoing a thorough cleaning.

To maintain the condition and appearance of your vinyl or linoleum floor, there are a few simple precautions you can take. Placing a doormat at entrances can help to trap dirt and debris, preventing them from being tracked onto the floor. Regularly sweeping the floor to remove loose dirt and grit is also essential, as these particles can act as abrasives and potentially scratch the surface. Additionally, promptly wiping up any spills or stains can prevent them from seeping into the floor and causing long-term damage. By implementing these basic measures, you can help preserve the longevity and fresh look of your vinyl or linoleum floor.

To clean vinyl or linoleum floors, it is advisable to sweep or vacuum using a solid floor attachment to remove loose dirt and debris. For stubborn dirt that cannot be removed through sweeping or vacuuming, a non-rinsing cleaner that does not leave behind any residue can be used along with a mop. It is important to avoid using abrasive cleaners, oil-based cleaners, or dish detergents, as these can potentially damage the flooring. By following these guidelines, you can effectively clean and maintain your vinyl or linoleum floors.

Tile Cleaning charges per square meter for each separate room during the stripping and sealing process. You can find a detailed price list on the Tile Cleaning website for your reference. Prior to starting the work, our team will measure each room individually, discuss the scope of work to be performed, and confirm all associated costs with you. This ensures transparency and clarity regarding the pricing structure for stripping and sealing your vinyl surfaces.

It is best to measure each vinyl area individually. The simplest method is to multiply the width of the area by its length. For instance, if a room is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide, the total area would be calculated as 3 meters (length) multiplied by 2 meters (width), resulting in a total of 6 square meters (6m2).

The drying time for a vinyl floor can vary depending on factors such as airflow and weather conditions on the day of the service. On average, it usually takes approximately three to six hours for a vinyl floor to dry after cleaning or sealing.

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.

We do not provide repairs for damages such as cuts and scratches. However, we offer a comprehensive stripping, cleaning, and sealing process that can help restore your vinyl flooring. In some cases, our buffing and polishing techniques can minimize the appearance of small scratches. However, please note that deep scratches may still be visible even after the restoration process.

To determine if your old and dull vinyl or linoleum floors can be restored to regain a new appearance, a Tile Cleaning technician will need to conduct an inspection. The feasibility of restoration will depend on various factors, including the age of the vinyl. By carefully assessing the condition of the floors, the technician can provide a professional evaluation and determine if restoration is possible. This inspection allows for an accurate assessment of the floors' potential for revitalization, ensuring that you receive informed guidance regarding the best course of action for your specific vinyl or linoleum flooring.

If the stain is new and has not fully set in, there is a high chance that we can remove it. However, it is important to note that proper maintenance, including regular stripping, cleaning, and sealing, is essential to prevent staining on your vinyl floor in the future.

The main distinction lies in the maintenance requirements. Linoleum floors necessitate regular refinishing intervals, while vinyl floors are more durable and typically only require occasional resealing when the sealant wears off, leaving the tiles vulnerable to scuffing or tearing.
Stone Polishing

Polishing is achieved by operating very fine grade abrasive diamond disc polishing machines at various speeds until a reflective finish is achieved. These final grades reduce and remove scratches which are not even visible to the human eye allowing the natural crystals on the stones 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.

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.

The term "polish" can be used to describe different services by different companies, however when it comes to vinyl floor "polishing" is just another way of saying sealing and buffing.

"Polish" is a substance that is applied to a surface to protect it and enhance its appearance. So for porous floors, the polish is applied on top of the seal, to give your floor its shine - and to protect the seal! The idea is that polish can be reapplied and maintained fairly easily, leaving the seal in place to protect the floor surface.

The application of polish to vinyl flooring is usually a simple task - but one that must be carried out correctly if the final finish is to be of a high standard. This involves stripping the previous polish using manufacturers approved products and applying a new layer. The floor should be cleaned and rinsed thoroughly. Once totally dry - and at this time probably appearing quite dull - Tile Cleaners® technicians apply polish and buff the surface using our buffing machines to achieve maximum shine, surface gloss and durability. It is very important not to over-apply polish - floors should have a 'wet-look' finish with no opaque streaks visible - if there are streaks it means that the polish is being spread too thickly - drying time and finish will suffer if polish is over-applied.

Over time, vinyl floors lose their sheen due to built up dirt and grime. Abrasion due to heels under footwear or rollers under chairs cause scratches and fine cuts on the sealed layers of your vinyl floors. These scratches and cuts act as cavities, attracting fine dirt particles to settle between them. High speed buffing can normally remove fine scratches and built up dirt so that floors return to a sparking shine. After we strip, clean and seal your vinyl floor it will be pristine. The vinyl has probably lost some of its gloss and developed some tiny scratches on the surface so buffing will make it look smoother and shinier. The smooth shiny floor will be easier to keep clean with just water or a mild cleaning solution for suture cleaning. You won't need to re-buff for a while and they will be looking the best they possible can.

Yes we buff floors so special occasions often and it happens to be one of our specialties. If it's a wedding or a party we will have your floors looking shiny and new for your special day or night.

The polish is the uppermost layer of your vinyl or linoleum flooring that prevents dirt and liquids from penetrating and staining the floor. It should be reapplied regularly. While some companies recommend that this be done once or twice per year, others once every several damp cleanings and the rest as the appearance dictates, the truth is it should be done periodically, at least twice a year.

A freshly stripped floor requires that a minimum of 3 layers of polish for acceptable gloss and surface protection.

Some advantages of proper polishing is the floor surface becomes shiny and protected against wear and tear and stains, you will end up saving time and money having it down right the first time Polishing of vinyl and linoleum floors is relatively unsophisticated. Without polishing, linoleum and vinyl floors appear dull and matted and become progressively susceptible to getting dirty, stained and damaged.

Many suspect a highly polished concrete floor would become more slippery-and thus more of a problem. Contrary to common perception, the degree of polish or shine is not directly related to slip resistance. Just because polished concrete is shiny doesn't mean it is slippery. If the right processes are applied both internally and/or externally, testing has shown that polished concrete will meet or exceed Australia/New Zealand standards for slip resistance. (Please bear in mind any floor finish can become slippery when wet.)

The duration required to complete concrete polishing varies depending on the size of the area. For larger projects, such as expansive floors, it may take up to three days to complete the polishing process. On the other hand, polishing a smaller surface like a bench-top can typically be finished within half a day. Professional services like Tile Cleaners® strive to minimize disruptions by aiming to complete the work within the same day, ensuring your home or business experiences as little interruption as possible.

Almost any concrete floor. Floors which are saturated with oil, or are in environments where they will constantly be exposed to acids, are probably not ideal for a polished concrete floor. Whether a new construction or a 100 year old slab, most concrete floors can benefit greatly from the aesthetic, durability, and longevity of polishing.

Most concrete sealers dry fairly quickly and are usually touch-dry after 4 hours. This is true of both penetrating and topical sealers. Penetrating sealers usually fully cure in 24 hours with topical sealers generally taking up to 48 hours to fully dry.

Mechanical, dry-grind concrete polishing is a fairly clean process, grinding will create a slurry, and can get a bit messy, but with the dry-grind process, a vacuum system is used in conjunction with the grinder to contain 98% of the airborne particles. The remainder of the dust is then easily swept up and removed in plastic bags.

Your new polished concrete floor, with the proper care, will last a lifetime. But like anything else, your surfaces will need a little attention from time to time to make sure they are holding up against the demands you place on it.

Polished concrete on its own is quite stain resistant, but many solutions can seep into the pores to create a stain, or even etch the floor. A sealer will line the pores to keep most stains suspended at the surface of the concrete, not allowing the stain to penetrate the floor and further preventing the likelihood of staining.

Concrete surfaces are subject to deterioration and degradation of appearance through traffic, UV rays, moisture, rain, chemicals, and other impurities such as oil, gas, grease, acids and salt. This can easily result in common problems such as cracking, pitting, scaling, spalling, delamination, dusting, discolouration, efflorescence, salt damage, etc. Concrete sealing offers excellent maintenance benefits when quality products are used such as Australia's Deepshield™ deep impregnating sealers.

Polished concrete is one of the most sustainable flooring options today. Polishing the structural slab of a building, instead of harvesting resources to cover it, prevents waste and is extremely long lasting.

Polished concrete pricing is basically dependent upon how many levels of grinding will be required to get the floor to a suitably smooth surface.

No, it is not possible to apply penetrating concrete sealers over existing topical sealers. Topical sealers create a membrane or film on the surface of the concrete, forming a barrier that prevents the penetrating sealers from effectively absorbing into the concrete. Therefore, before applying a penetrating sealer, it is necessary to remove any existing topical sealer to ensure proper penetration and adhesion of the new sealer. This preparation step ensures that the penetrating sealer can effectively provide the desired protection and enhance the durability of the concrete surface.

To maintain the condition of your polished concrete, it is recommended to clean it using a pH-neutral cleaner. This type of cleaner is gentle and does not damage the polished surface. After applying the pH-neutral cleaner, rinse the area with clean water to remove any residue. In case of spills, it is advisable to promptly clean them up using clean water. Additionally, to eliminate dust and keep the surface clean, using a microfiber mop is recommended. This method of cleaning helps to preserve the polished appearance of the concrete while ensuring that it remains free from dirt and debris.

Yes, however it is always best to use a pH neutral cleaner to suspend the dirt so it can be cleaned off the floor instead of just spread around on the floor and leaving a hazy film on the surface.

When laying a new slab, a wide range of coloured concretes and coloured aggregates are available for you to choose from.

Yes and the best thing about it is that it will never be as involved as the initial process. Normally it will only take a couple of steps to reach the end result required.

Polished concrete flooring can be walked on during the grind and polish process. There is no 'cure' time since it is a mechanical process. If a sealer is used, 4 hours is typically required before foot traffic can be resumed.

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 concrete surfaces.

The process is virtually dust free. There is no airborne dust due to the use of Hepa filter vacuum systems. There will be some residual dust left on the floor but it will be vacuumed up between steps by another filtered vacuum. A little dust is created when using hand held grinders, however this is removed between each grinding stage.

In most cases yes we can. The concrete would have to be in very poor condition not to be able to achieve a polished concrete finish.

It will be necessary to "hand" finish against fixed obstacles. Our technicians will do this during the process.

As a general rule, concrete should be allowed to cure for 28 days prior to grinding.

No, we specialize in the polishing or grinding of the concrete, however we do have concreters that we work with and can recommend to you.

No, the floor is not stain proof. It is more stain resistant than a regular concrete floor because the pores in the floor are closed up so tight that it keeps liquids on the surface longer looking for a way to penetrate, allowing for a longer time to respond in getting spills cleaned up. However if a liquid is left long enough on the surface stains may result. We recommend sealing your surface with Deepshield™ impregnating sealer which seals the micro pores of your polished concrete and will last for up to 10 years.

Here at Tile Cleaners® we understand the importance of your family's safety, which is why we prefer to use non-toxic finishing agents as we not only want to protect your polished concrete floors, but your families health too. Materials and agents that present potential health hazards are not in our product portfolio and never have been.

The recommended frequency for sealing polished concrete floors depends on factors such as the type of sealer used and the amount of foot traffic the floors are exposed to. Australia's Deepshield™ range of deep impregnating water-based sealers, for instance, offers long-term benefits, with Deepshield™ Gold providing protection for up to 15 years. On the other hand, topical sealers typically have a lifespan of around 3 years. However, it is important to note that high foot traffic or severe weather conditions, especially for outdoor concrete, can potentially shorten the lifespan of the sealer. Additionally, the condition of the surface plays a role in determining when resealing is necessary. If you notice patchy areas or the floors are staining easily, it may be a sign that resealing is needed. Feel free to contact us for further assistance and any inquiries you may have regarding sealing your polished concrete floors.

A matte (up to 100 grit) or even low sheen (400 grit) can be used outdoors, but polished concrete with a high sheen is not recommended.

The optimal time to seal your concrete is right after installation to provide immediate protection against staining and damage. As for determining if your concrete surfaces require sealing, there are a couple of indicators to look out for. Firstly, if you notice patchy areas on the floor where the sealant has worn off or is uneven, it is a clear sign that resealing is needed. Additionally, if your concrete is becoming more susceptible to staining and is no longer repelling liquids as effectively as before, it is a good indication that it is time to apply a fresh coat of sealer. By addressing these signs promptly, you can ensure that your concrete remains adequately protected and maintains its optimal appearance.

Efflorescence can occur on concrete and other porous surfaces when water in the concrete brings salts to the surface as it evaporates. This process leaves behind a whitish coating that can mar the finish of the concrete. Sealing the concrete with a high-quality, water-resistant sealer can help mitigate efflorescence to some extent. However, it is important to address the underlying issue causing the water penetration, such as a water pipe leak or damaged grout, in order to fully prevent efflorescence. By sealing the concrete and resolving any sources of water infiltration, you can minimize the occurrence of efflorescence and help maintain the aesthetic integrity of your concrete surfaces.

Certainly! Tile Cleaners has the expertise to remove efflorescence from concrete surfaces. Efflorescence, which is the buildup of salts, can be effectively treated using specialized cleaning techniques and efflorescence removers. It is crucial to address the underlying cause of efflorescence, which is often a leak behind the concrete or damaged grout lines. While efflorescence can be removed, it is essential to resolve the root cause to prevent its recurrence. By engaging professional services, you can have the efflorescence removed and ensure that steps are taken to rectify the underlying issue, helping to restore the appearance of your concrete surfaces.

To maintain the fresh and new appearance of your concrete surfaces, Tile Cleaners® recommends regular cleaning using a mild detergent. This weekly cleaning routine helps remove dirt and grime from the concrete surface, keeping it looking clean and well-maintained. It is important to note that strong detergents with high acidity or alkalinity can potentially affect the sealer applied to the concrete. Therefore, it is strongly advised to use mild detergents and pH-neutral substances when cleaning the surfaces. By following these maintenance guidelines, you can effectively preserve the pristine condition of your concrete and ensure its long-lasting beauty.

We recommend that you measure each concrete 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.

Removing furniture and items beforehand also helps to protect them from any potential damage during the sealing process. By following this simple preparation step, you can help ensure a smooth and effective concrete sealing experience.
Stone Honing

Honed 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.


Indoor and outdoor, polished, matte finish, porous, pre-sealed, wherever you have tiles we have a restoration solution. External tiles, natural stone paver's, all bathroom tiles and wall tiles. Tile Cleaners® cater for each and every different type of surface you might have.

Honing and polishing produce fairly opposite results. Polishing produces a glossy finish while honing produces a more matte finish. Honed surfaces can hide some imperfections such as scratches, and some everyday dirt, whereas polishing will reflect light and imperfections more than a honed surface.

Yes, the mechanical resurfacing process used to hone your floors will remove all coatings, resulting in your floors being in an "as new" condition. Once honed, you should reseal your surfaces with a deep penetrating, impregnating sealer, which avoids staining and will reduce the effect of soiling.

Tile Cleaners® recommend our clients apply a long lasting water based sealer such as a quality product from Australia's Deepshield™ range of sealer's to their tiles as soon as they have been resurfaced. Your stone will maintain its beautiful character for longer, while also reduce the amount of required regular cleaning.

Stone based tiles are usually more porous requiring more attention than man made tiles, which is why its extremely important to use correct products and equipment to restore your tiles to their best possible condition.

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 floors, but your families health too. Materials and agents that present potential health hazards are not in our product portfolio and never have been.

No, honing produces the opposite effect to having your floors polished. Honing will result in a smooth, matte, non reflective finish and will only appear shiny, or glossy where the honing process is followed by a polishing process.

Honing can provide a degree of slip resistance to your surfaces. Polished surfaces are often slippery when wet and honing is an excellent way to create an extra degree of safety. Please call one of our knowledgeable customer service for more advice regarding your surface.

Honing will remove scratches and stains and give a more uniform appearance to your surface.

Lippage is the term given to uneven tiles that are set higher than one another, which usually requires a more aggressive process than honing in order to create a completely flat surface. Grinding is recommended for excessive lippage.

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. 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 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.

Move all furniture and items off the floor so it is ready for when we arrive.

Indoor and outdoor, polished, matte finish, porous, pre-sealed, wherever you have tiles we have a restoration solution. External tiles, natural stone paver's, all bathroom tiles and wall tiles. Tile Cleaners® cater for each and every different type of surface you might have.

Honing and polishing produce fairly opposite results. Polishing produces a glossy finish while honing produces a more matte finish. Honed surfaces can hide some imperfections such as scratches, and some everyday dirt, whereas polishing will reflect light and imperfections more than a honed surface.

This will depend on the size of the area; larger jobs can require up to 3 days while honing a bench-top can take up to half a day. Tile Cleaners® do try to ensure work is completed within the same day to avoid as much disruption to your home or business as possible.

Yes, the mechanical resurfacing process used to hone your floors will remove all coatings, resulting in your floors being in an "as new" condition. Once honed, you should reseal your surfaces with a deep penetrating, impregnating sealer, which avoids staining and will reduce the effect of soiling.

Tile Cleaners® recommend our clients apply a long lasting water based sealer such as a quality product from Australia's Deepshield® range of sealer's to their tiles as soon as they have been resurfaced. Your stone will maintain its beautiful character for longer, while also reduce the amount of required regular cleaning.

Most of our procedures use water in order to minimise dust production. Honing will create a slurry, however by employing state-of-the-art equipment and our years of expertise, once finished your surfaces will be left in their best possible condition.

Stone 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, 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.


The grinding process used by Tile Cleaners® technicians is completely safe, not only for your family but for the surrounding areas of your property. The utmost care is taken by our professionals to protect walls and skirting boards as well as all other items in the work area. Excess slurry, dust and debris is extracted as we go, whilst non-toxic sealers are used to finish off the stone. Tile Cleaners® prides itself for catering for each tile type in the safest most hygienic way.

Grinding refers to the removal of large amounts of material from the surface of the stone. Grinding is used to remove deep scratches and staining as well as lippage(uneven surface) thereby smoothing out the surface of the area making it uniform. Honing is the smoothing of the stone, not as aggressive as grinding and removes very little material from the stone, giving a matte(not glossy as with polishing) look to the surface.

In areas that cannot be reached by larger floor grinding machines, the grinding can be done using hand held polishing machines.
