Bringing Quarry tiles back to looking their best in Wales

Quarry tiles in Wales

Earlier this month, our technician Pete travelled to Chepstow in Wales to breath life back into a tired looking tiled floor. The quarry tiles had not been professionally cleaned or treated in many years which led to them looking a little dull.

Quarry tiles are hard non-porous paving tiles created from ground minerals which are formed into a tile shaped and fired just like bricks. The images below shows the condition before the clean –

As you can see, soil & stains have built up on the surface of the tiles & on the grout and now require restoration & resealing. General cleaning such as mopping will probably have exacerbated the problem by simply spreading slurry into the lower areas where it dries out and the detergent leaves a sticky residue, attracting further soiling.

The only way to improve things is to use a hot solution that would break the soiling & agitate using a rotary machine and a manual grout brush. The results of which can be seen below –

Whilst any imperfections in the tiles will remain after a professional clean, the floor is most certainly cleaner & looks much better.

Following the clean, we accelaerated the drying process using air-movers & then applied an impregnating seal.

A natural finish is created using an impregnating seal which is absorbed into the tile, it enhances the colour of the tiles & protects against spillages etc.

If you are thinking of having your hard flooring cleaned, please do not hesitate to contact us today. We would recommend organising a survey so we can determine the condition/ specific requirements of your floor.
