Testimonials

I was about to sell my house, but was not happy with the tiles in the dining area. The tiles were white and shiny but the grout looked really dark and dirty. I already had a potential client; however the dark grout ruined the beauty of the room. I didn't have much time to fix the grout and decided to call Tile Cleaners as my real estate agency mentioned them. As my real estate agent said, Tile cleaners responded really quickly. They also pointed out that some of the grout was coming off in the hallway when they were there, which I had not even noticed. Thank you for fixing my problem so quickly. The house is sold now and I left your details with the new owner so they can keep the tiles in good condition.

I 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.

We got our tiles more than 25 years ago. We were told that we had a solvent sealer on our tiles, which apparently most companies wouldn't be able to strip off. However we rang a couple of places to check them out. No luck. A friend of mine recommended Tile Cleaners. We rang the guys and they agreed to have a look the next day. We decided to go ahead with the job after getting a satisfactory quote. Tile Cleaners team stripped and resealed our old tiles. We are very grateful for your help guys. Thank you again.

What is Grinding?

Grinding a surface will smooth out imperfections and open a new layer of your stone upon which it is possible to build a high quality honed or polished finish.

Grinding will remove deep scratches, stains and other contaminations from your stone, resulting in a very smooth and even surface, able to reflect light more consistently. Grinding will also remove any lippage, the term used for uneven tiles which can occur after a typical installation.

Resurfacing is an extremely skilled task that requires patience and experience. If not done properly and to the right depth it may only enhance the scratches and impurities.

Is there a difference between Grinding, Honing and Polishing?

Grinding, honing and polishing are similar processes, and refer to different levels the surfaces are ground back to using diamond head pads. It is important to note that all three refer to the process of using an abrasive to smooth back a stone.

One of the first things people will often notice when entering your home or business are the surfaces. When your beautiful stone surfaces become damaged from every day usage and improper care, you will need an expert to restore the life back to those surfaces. Australia's Tile Cleaners® technicians use a number of professional processes and techniques to return your stone to its true beauty.

Grinding: An aggressive approach to refinishing stone, using a metal-bonded and diamond grit heavy weighted floor buffer to remove deep scratches and lippage. The porosity of the stone still remains noticeable, and this process is typically dust-free.

Honing: This leaves a smooth flat finish with a matte look. Often completed after the grinding phase, this method is a much less aggressive approach than grinding. Although similar, the materials and grits used are not as coarse as with grinding. Many projects also may start with honing and skip the grinding phase. Tile Cleaners® honing process is able to remove minor to moderate scratches and etch marks in a softer manner. When done properly, honing will result in a smooth and even finish.

Polishing: After the honing phase, a higher grit and sometimes combinations of higher grit compounds will be used to bring out a shine in your stone during the polishing process. This finest grade of the grinding process is used to achieve a sleek, polished look.

Commercial Grinding

Tile Cleaners® provide premium services to all Australia's commercial properties. We are equipped to restore factory finishes to sandstone, granite, marble, bluestone, travertine and limestone surfaces with our experienced technicians and state-of-the-art equipment.

Tile Cleaners® often find commercial spaces such as apartment blocks, shopping centres and hotels experience dullness and damage in high traffic areas. The best results in bringing the floors back to a uniform look throughout are achieved by grinding.

Lippage Removal

Lippage refers to uneven surfaces that occurs when stone or tiles are not laid to a uniform level. By running your hand over the grout line you will often notice a definite dip. Sometimes this can be very uneven with a tile being a few millimetres higher than the adjacent tile. Tile Cleaners® diamond grinding process will remove lippage, leaving the floor completely even and flat at the grout lines. This is achieved with metal bonded diamond plates which coarsely grind away at the stone leaving it flat. The next step is usually to repeat this process with finer pads, with each grade becoming progressively finer, the number of grades Tile Cleaners® technicians use depends on the type of stone and the type of finish you require, usually a honed or polished, glossy finish.

Benefits of Grinding

If your natural stone is damaged from etching and scratching, grinding will provide a beautiful end result. Don’t go through the pain and cost of having a slightly worn stone retiled.
Grinding will:

  • Smooth uneven tiles
  • Remove deep stains that can’t be removed by cleaning
  • Remove trip hazards
  • Remove imperfections
  • Restore the natural shine of stone
  • Enhance colour features in the stone

Regular Care

Natural stone is one of the most beautiful surfaces anyone can have in their home or office. However, many varieties can easily scratch in high foot traffic areas. A regular maintenance program is vital if your surfaces are to retain their beauty.

Once liquids spill on the surface of your stone, wipe it immediately. To clean stone, you should never use regular soap as it can seep through the surface and darken the area, instead use mildly abrasive household detergent. Never use vinegar. The acid in vinegar damages, actually etches and removes the surface of many stone types. After mopping, dry the floor with a cotton towel or use a sh-mop to remove the moisture and prevent water spots.

Natural stone can become quickly etched, or corroded by acidic materials upon contact by common household substances such as soft drink, tea, citrus juice and acidic cleaning products. A surface with a matte or honed finish needs to be as a rule, periodically cleaned and re-sealed by a professional and should be sealed with a deep penetrating, impregnating sealer, which avoids staining and reduces the effect of soiling, Australian made non-toxic Deepshield® Transparent Penetrating Sealer is non-slip and lasts for up to 10 years.
