Testimonials

The Slate tiles we have in our dining and kitchen area had very old solvents that no other company was able to remove. The job your team did to reseal my kitchen floors was excellent. Much appreciated and recommended to others.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs » Sealing Stone Floors

  • Q: How can I tell if my stone surface is sealed?
  • A: There is a simple test that can be performed in order for you to check if your stone, concrete or tiled floor has been sealed correctly, this is called the water test. Pour a little water onto the surface and level out with your finger and observe. If the water is absorbed then your surface is in need of sealing as soon as possible. However, if the water turns into small balls and is repelled then your surface has been sealed.

Other FAQs :

  • Q: Will my floors look like new again?
  • A: If your grout(and tiles if applicable) have NOT been sealed previously, it is possible that some staining, particularly in high traffic areas may be permanent. If your grout(and tiles if applicable) HAVE been sealed previously, the dirt and other contaminants should have been prevented from penetrating and you may expect an excellent result from cleaning.
    • Q: Why should I clean my stone surface?
    • A: Natural stone products contain dirt, residues, dust and grime in their pores. These pores need to be cleaned well before any sealant is applied to the surface of the stone. If dirt etc. is trapped under the stone sealer sooner or later it will cause a milky white residue between the top of the stone and the underside of the sealer. The only way to remove this is to remove the stone sealer and clean.
      • Q: Why should I seal my stone surface and when?
      • A: All natural stone products will stain almost immediately after spilling anything on them. Sealing a stone surface will be effective against permanent damage but spills should still be cleaned up as quickly as possible. There are different sealing methods for different natural stone surfaces. Sandstone, Terracotta and Limestone must be sealed before the tiles are laid and grouted. All are very porous and will soak up stained water from the adhesive, grout etc. very quickly. Terracotta in particular is immensely porous and should be sealed front, back and sides before laying. Limestone is also particularly vulnerable and gloves should be worn when handling it as finger marks can stain the surface and will not necessarily show until its too late. Granite, Marble, Slate and Travertine are sealed on all edges and the top after being laid and grouted. These floors must be thoroughly cleaned prior to sealing.
