Mexican Tile Cleaning & Sealing
Can my mexican tile and grout be cleaned?
Yes, mexican tile can be cleaned by a variety of different methods. Most commonly, we apply a hi-test alkaline solution to the floor and allow it to dwell. This solution breaks down penetrated dirt buildup on the stone surface as well as the grout lines. We then either use a hot water surface extractor or a floor machine to restore mexican tile and grout to its original state.
What are my options for sealing my mexican tile?
There are a variety of options here depending on your preference. Essentially all sealers are going to do the same thing by protecting your mexican tile. The difference is the sheen level you prefer. You can have a matte finish with no shine at all, a low lustre finish with a bit of shine, or a high gloss wet look sealer.
Can Chips be repaired on my tile?
Before your stone was delivered to your house as a brilliant and perfect piece of stone, it was composed of numerous holes and voids. At the fabrication factories, these holes and voids are filled using a tinted resin to match the stone color and characteristics. Holes and chips are very common, especially in areas where there is a lot of abrasion, such as at the bases of dining chairs that slide back and forth very often. The holes virtually disappear once they are filled and the material used to fill is very durable.
