STRIPPING & SEALING SERVICES FOR HAWTHORN HOMES

WE SPECIALISE IN NATURAL STONE AND TILE STRIPPING AND SEALING SERVICES FOR HAWTHORN HOMES

If the natural stone or tile surfaces of your Hawthorn home still look grimy after a thorough clean, it means that the tiles need to be stripped back before they are cleaned and sealed again. The reason is that the dirt has become so ingrained that cleaning and sealing them is not enough.

A deluxe bathroom, (especially the shower) or kitchen in your Hawthorn home can look dull and outdated if the tiles or natural stone needs a thorough clean. The same also applies to your outdoor areas. Enjoying quality time with your family is not as good as it should be if the outdoor living area of your Hawthorn home looks like it has seen better days because the tiles and natural stone surfaces look grimy.

To get rid of tough grime and stains, take the extra step of removing the seal coating on your stone or tiles. It will also bring back the natural shine of the floors and tiled surfaces of your Hawthorn home. 

The existing sealer is removed carefully before we apply the new sealer. This is to make sure the floor or other surface is not damaged. We do this using professional chemicals and solutions as well as specialised equipment. 

The stripper needs to completely penetrate the sealer. To do this, the stone or tile surface needs to be scrubbed. This process is repeated until all the sealer has been removed. Protection equipment is needed because some sealers also emit harmful fumes. That’s why stripping tiles should always be left to the professionals.

After the stripping process, our experts will select the best sealer based on the type of your flooring. In the market you can find hundreds of sealers. This is because different materials require different types of sealer. There are two types of sealers used for stone and tile surfaces. The first one is the matte or satin finish that leaves a natural appearance and the second one leaves a shiny surface. Both sealants will protect your tiles or stones.

If your tiles, grout and flooring are stripped and sealed it will make future cleaning easier. This is because 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 Hawthorn 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.
