A LIFETIME OF BEAUTY
WHY CHOOSE A SPECIALIST TILE CLEANER
We are often asked whether specialist tile cleaners really do work better than the standard cleaners found in your average supermarket aisle. And the honest truth is that they do, especially for natural stone. This is not necessarily because they have a secret ingredient but rather because they are specifically manufactured for tile. This is more prominent for natural stone than for porcelain or ceramic tile.
Natural Stone is porous by nature (i.e. it absorbs liquid) unlike porcelain tile which is fired in a kiln at extremely high temperatures when it is manufactured. This means that an average household cleaner will work alright and not damage porcelain tile however we would never recommend a household bleach or acid-based cleaner on natural stone; especially if it has a polished look as these type of cheap cleaners will remove any sheen/polish from a natural stone tile. These specialist cleaners are similar in price and designed specifically to clean and restore the tile.
At all our San Diego Marble & Tile locations, we have a variety of cleaners specifically designed for all different tile and grouts and we would love to help you choose the right product for your house.
SHOULD I USE A SEALER ON MY TILE?
Tile sealers penetrate into the pores of tile to form a barrier that is resistant to moisture and stains while allowing complete vapor transmission. The beauty with a tile sealer is that it can create a layer of protection for your tile without altering the natural look. Tile and natural stone sealers can create a harder and less slippery surface, especially for tile and natural stone installed in wet areas or outdoors.
Choosing the right sealer and knowing when and how to apply it, is something that we can help you with.
