If the stone or tile surfaces in your Donvale home have already been sealed but still look dirty when you give them a good clean, it may mean that the tiles need to be stripped back before they are are cleaned and sealed again. This is because the dirt has become so ingrained cleaning and sealing them is not sufficient.

In fact, even the most luxurious Donvale bathroom, (especially the shower) or kitchen can look tired and old if the tiles or natural stone surfaces look like they need a good clean. The same goes for outdoor areas. Enjoying quality family time is not as good as it could be if the outdoor living area of your Donvale home looks like it has seen better days because the tiles and natural stone surfaces look a bit grimy.

By taking the extra step of removing the seal coating on your stone or tiles means you get rid of hard to remove grime and stains. It is one of the best ways to bring your the floors and other tiled surfaces in your Donvale home back to looking their best.  

Before applying the new sealer to protect your flooring in your Donvale home, the existing sealer must be carefully removed. We do this using professional chemicals and solutions and specialised equipment. If this isn’t done properly, you may end up permanently damaging your floors.

The stone or tile surface is then scrubbed to make sure the stripper has penetrated the sealer completely. This process is repeated until all the sealer has been removed. Some sealers also emit harmful fumes when being stripped back, so appropriate equipment is vital. That’s why stripping tiles should always be left to the professionals.

Once stripped, our experts select the best sealer based on the type of your flooring. There are hundreds of sealers on the market – different materials require different types of sealer. Two common types of sealers are used for stone and tile surfaces. The first one leaves a natural appearance, known as a matte or satin finish. The second one leaves a shiny surface. However, no matter what type of sealant you use, both will protect your tiles or stones.

By stripping and sealing your tiles, grout and flooring, you reduce stains and make future cleaning more manageable. Sealing creates a barrier that protects the flooring from chemical spills, pets, deterioration and other stains. That’s why so many choose to have their stone and tiles in their Donvale home stripped and sealed when they get them cleaned.

Along with stripping and sealing ceramic tiles, we also seal marbleslatebluestone, sandstonelimestoneporcelain tiles and quarry tiles. So no matter the surface you can trust Tile Cleaning Experts to bring back their sparkle.
