Porcelain tiles are incredibly popular and offer a vast range of advantages that pay testament to their popularity. They are able to endure heavy foot traffic, whilst offering striking aesthetic appeal. Porcelain is a dense and hard tile that is highly resistant to moisture, scratches and staining. As a result porcelain floor tiles are more resistant to a variety of cleaning agents.
Whilst a porcelain floor can look stunning when fist laid it is inevitable that over time it will begin to look dull and will have lost its original lustre. Porcelain marks may be more visible in high traffic lanes of your home or business. It may also be that the floor looks dull after routine cleaning and this build-up can occur with anti-slip tiles.
The following information will provide you with the detailed knowledge and advice to successfully restore your porcelain tiles;
Firstly a good quality impregnator should be applied prior to the tiles being grouted. This process, if possible, will prevent the residue created from the grouting process sticking to the surrounding tiles. Once the grouting process has been completed, the residue will be easily removed.
It will not always be the case that you are equipped in time to ensure that the above process is completed. It is still possible to remove porcelain marks once your tiled floor has been laid using the below information.
Step one is to clean the required area with an alkaline cleaner using specialist equipment. This uses a powerful vacuum machine, driven by an engine with high pressurised steam and captures the excessive dirt and cleaning solution. It extracts these to a waste tank, producing no mess. This state-of-the-art technology provides trade experts the ability of offering superior cleaning results with minimal disruption to homes and businesses.
Step two is to apply an acid cleaner, using the above process and equipment. Best-served professionals have invested in the best-available machinery to ensure that they are in the position of offering superior cleaning results for both natural stone flooring and manmade stone tiles. This is coupled with time-served knowledge of the most appropriate cleaning formulations available.
Step three allows the area to be fully dried. Industrial blowers can be used in order to speed up this process, again reducing the disruption to your home or business. The floor must be thoroughly dried prior to the final step.
Step four is the application of an impregnator protector. This protects the porcelain tiles and provides the opportunity of easier routine cleaning once the tiles have been fully restored. This forms an important part of the process as it provides the benefit of great looking floor tiles for as long as possible.
The above detail is pivotal to the overall success of the complete restoration of your porcelain tiles. Investing both time and effort into identifying the best-available local specialist will leave you with an undoubtedly superior clean, coupled with the detailed knowledge of how best to routinely clean your beautiful flooring.
