Tile Sealing And Cleaning Service: Floors, Showers, Walls, Backsplash

Professional Tile Refinishing & Maintenance Services

Maintaining tile flooring, countertops, and bathrooms is not an easy task; there is no one size fits all method for cleaning and sealing tile floors because there are so many different types. Ceramic tile consists mostly or completely of clay and is classified as either porcelain or non-porcelain. Non-porcelain tiles are usually made from red or white clay and are fired in a kiln. Although they are thought to be a subcategory of ceramic tiles, there is a huge difference between ceramic tile and unglazed tile. To maintain its beauty and make cleaning easier, hire a local tile sealing and cleaning company like us at Texas Stone Sealers.

Tile Maintenance: Cleaning, Polishing, Refinishing, Sealing

Non-porcelain ceramic tiles have a high porosity and readily absorb water. They are typically used in areas with light to moderate foot traffic, since they are prone to wear and chipping. Sealing unglazed tile is a must to protect it from everyday wear and tear that can stain, scratch, and damage it. Before applying a tile sealant, have a professional tile cleaning company come out and remove any debris, dirt, oil, or stains.

Maintaining Porcelain Tile

Porcelain tiles are made by dust pressing and are fire hardened; therefore, they have a higher density than non-porcelain tiles. They have a much lower absorption rate and are wear resistant. Porcelain tile may be either glazed or unglazed. Glazed tiles are coated with a layer of baked on glass that protects them from staining; therefore, they do not need sealant. However, the grout between the tiles should be sealed to prevent the absorption of moisture and debris that can cause discoloration. A sealant application will also protect non-porcelain tiles from scratching and wear.

 

 

Tile Floor Cleaning & Maintenance Tips

Unglazed stone tiles used as flooring are exposed to foot traffic that can carry grit and dirt over the surface and cause scratching. A mat at the entry way will trap oils and debris to help minimize the potential for damage. Close blinds and curtains to protect the tiles from UV rays that can fade colors. The floor should be vacuumed or dust mopped regularly to minimize the build-up of dirt and maintain its appearance. Mop with warm water and a cloth or sponge mop. A pH neutral cleanser formulated for stone and tile may be used to clean difficult to remove soils or oil.

Sealing & Cleaning Tile Areas Around Your Home

Countertops – Tile countertops must be cleaned after every use to ensure sanitary conditions and preserve the aesthetics of the tile. Food and beverage residue left on the tiles can lead to the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew. For daily cleaning, use a sponge and a dilute solution of pH neutral cleanser such as dishwashing detergent.

Avoid highly acidic or alkaline cleaners that can fade the tiles. Use a clean, dry cloth to dry the countertop after cleaning. Do not allow water to stand on the countertop, whereas it can lead to the growth of mildew and mold on the tile and grout.  If you already have stains, you need to schedule a professional cleaning service for mold removal.  Tile countertops should be sealed to prevent staining and scratching. The professionals at Texas Stone Sealers  clean and seal tile countertops, flooring, and bathrooms and all service comes with a five year written guarantee.

Backsplash – Your tile backsplash is exposed to moisture on an ongoing basis. Regular cleaning is required to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. Use a pH neutral cleaning solution and a soft cloth or sponge to wipe down the tiles. Rinse with clean water and use a clean, dry towel to dry the tiles. A sealant application will inhibit the absorption of water and prevent the growth of mold and mildew. Our experts seal tile backsplash and grout to protect against water intrusion.

Before applying sealant or having a professional do the job, make sure you have removed all oil and debris from your backsplash. If you cook regularly, you should consider hiring a professional to remove all residual oil, dirt, and food particles from your backsplash tiles.

Shower – Shower tiles are continuously in a wet environment, which is conducive to the growth of mold and mildew. Showers built with natural stone tiles consisting of limestone or travertine are especially vulnerable to water and mold damage. Using a squeegee to wipe down the walls will help them dry faster. Keeping the area well lit will also minimize the occurrence of mold and mildew. A pH neutral cleanser should be used for regular cleaning. Over time, mineral deposits from the water and soap scum can produce a film on the tiles, making them appear dull. An alkaline cleanser can be used to remove built-up residue but should not be used frequently. Seal shower tiles and bathroom tile to protect it from mold and mildew growth and costly water leaks into the drywall behind them.

Shower tiles need a high quality, durable sealant because alkaline soaps can degrade the sealant. Our TSS PRO 500 Clear sealant is an excellent choice and will extend the life of your tiles and make cleaning your shower easier.
