Victorian Tiles – Cleaning and Sealing

A hard wearing tile that gives a classic look to any space which is commonly found in the reception areas of older buildings, especially in hallways. We often find that the beauty of these tiles are hidden under years of grime and neglect, however all is not lost they can be restored, see below for details.

Victorian Tile Maintenance

  • To remove any excess sealer before cleaning use Tile Doctor Remove & Go Sealer remover.
  • Use Tile Doctor Pro-Clean Tile & Grout cleaner to effectively clean tiles, highly effective against Wax Sealers, Grease, Grime and general dirt build up.
  • For difficult floors mix Pro-Clean with Nanotech Ultra Clean for a double whammy cleaning solution. Nanotech-Ultra Clean incorporates Nano technology to help lift the dirt from the tiles (it really works), especially useful for those hard to clean floors where the dirt has ingrained itself over many years.
  • Remove any cleaning solution using a wet-dry vac machine (any cleaning solution left on the surface may impact the performance of the sealer) then neutralise floor with clean water prior to sealing, remove with a wet-dry Vac machine and allow to dry for 12 hours or more.
  • For a low sheen finish apply Tile Doctor Seal & Go sealer using a paintpad applicator and tray. 4 to 5 coats of sealant may be required, always allow to dry before applying furhter coats. Use a water test to achieve full cure sealability (F.C.S.).

Most sealers break down after 2-3 years (depending on usage and cleaning products used) so for regular cleaning use a sealer friendly cleaning product such as Neutral Tile Cleaner which has been especially formulated for the regular cleaning of Sealed Stone and Tile surfaces keeping them fresh with a pleasant mint scent.
