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.

Tile Cleaners Brisbane® prides itself on providing Australia's best granite stripping and sealing service. Our years of experience in the field of tile and stone protection results in your granite looking its absolute best, protected against staining and deterioration for the longest possible time.

Granite tiles are quite porous and should be sealed to preserve their appearance and protect against staining and deterioration caused by everyday wear. Sealed or not sealed, we can help; our team of tile care professionals will achieve the best results for your granite tiles.

When your granite tiles begin to appear dull and start to stain easily, that means your previous sealer is wearing off and your tiles are in danger of permanent damage. Tile Cleaners Brisbane® strip/remove all necessary worn sealer from your granite tiles, restoring their fresh look using our advanced, proven equipment; we then seal your granite tiles with one of our top quality water based products.

All porous tiles should be sealed. Sealing keeps most stains suspended at the surface of your granite, creating a barrier that provides protection against chemical attack, deterioration and contamination. Sealing is the first important step towards protecting your natural granite against stains.

What is Granite?

Granite is molten lava that never rose above the surface of the earth. Granite is a very hard natural stone denser than marble. A geologist will tell you that it is an igneous or metamorphic rock that is highly saturated with silica. Silica when combined with oxygen makes the mineral quartz, and it has a rating of 7 on the Mohs scale, which determines a materials' hardness. Diamond has a rating of 10. Suffice it to say there are not too many things that will easily scratch granite.

Granite delivers breathtaking beauty unmatched by synthetic materials and a very high level of durability. Granite is used in many roles around the house, from flooring, stair treads and countertops to wall coverings and beautiful sinks and basins. Granite is a preferred material, due to its extremely high quality, it's easiness to clean and its ability to improve the value of your home.

Cleaning Granite Tiles

If you need advice on how to clean your old or brand new granite surfaces and tile grout and how best to reseal your granite so it stays looking new, or need a professional to do it for you then you have come to the right place.

Different cleaning and maintenance methods should be used on granite depending on its finish and whether it's sealed or left in its natural state. In general, granite tiles should be cleaned and maintained with non acidic products and it is recommended to have granite professionally cleaned every few years to maintain their appearance and restore the fresh look once the tiles start to appear tired following regular daily use.

Granite, like other calcareous stones, is referred to as acid sensitive. Calcareous stones are readily dissolved in acid, therefore acidic products should not be used on Granite tiles.

Sealing Granite Tiles

Two main sealing options exist for granite tiles

  • Deep Penetrating Impregnating Sealer
  • (Transparent Finish/Colour Enhancing Finish)

  • Topical Sealer
  • (Gloss/Satin/Matte Finish)

deepshield moisture granite

Tile Cleaners Brisbane® recommend penetrating water based sealers for granite wherever possible. Transparent penetrating sealers are designed to maintain the natural look and feel of your granite. Australia's Deepshield® GOLD is designed for dense surfaces such as granite and will protect your granite surface and grout from absorbing stains for up to 15 years by chemically reacting with the surface pores to form a long lasting breathable protective barrier.

An impregnating transparent sealer once cured inside the pores of your stone will not change the texture or appearance of your granite. A penetrating colour enhancing sealer is designed to enhance and enrich the look of granite tiles.

Tile Cleaners Brisbane® are experts at applying all types of sealer and will ensure your granite looks its absolute best. Tile Cleaners Brisbane® experienced technicians can apply a topical sealer when especially required to create a high gloss, satin sheen or matte finish to your surfaces. Topical sealer is also helpful in situations where the old solvent based sealer can not be completely removed or when required to hide certain types of damage. Topical sealer's have a life expectancy of 3-5 years.

You can easily test how porous your granite is by applying a small amount of water to the surface and watching how it is absorbed. You can then see how any type of water based stain can be absorbed by the granite tile surface and grout.

Types of sealers used on granite tiles

Water based sealer's and solvent-based sealers can both be used on granite, however unless absolutely required for a specific reason we always recommend applying a water based sealer that doesn't produce harmful fumes during application and removal. Water based sealers are easier to apply and remove and also require less drying time. One of the most popular product ranges available is Australian made Deepshield™ quality impregnating water based sealer's that prolong the life of your surfaces by taking full advantage of recent advancements in nano technology, providing unmatched long-term stain resistance and reliability.

It is important to ensure the correct water based sealer is applied to your granite tile which will also depend on whether they are indoors or outdoors as most sealer's will not last long outside due to being designed for internal use. If your granite is outdoors, it is important to use a water based sealer that is specifically designed for outdoor granite.

There are two types of impregnating clear sealer, water based sealer & solvent based. In the past solvent based sealers were more widely used as they used to absorb deeper into the granite and grout and would also last longer. Today however, thanks to new technological advancements, it is recommended only to use water based sealers, that last much longer and cause less potential damage to health and property.

Solvent based products are more difficult to apply and can create major problems when applied incorrectly as they are very hard to remove. Tile Cleaners Brisbane® recommend our clients apply a long lasting water based sealer to their granite tiles and grout. Topical sealer's (glossy plastic coating over the top of the granite) are still used on granite, but these older style sealers can trap moisture in the stone and make the surface slippery when wet. When a topical sealer wears in higher traffic areas, the entire surface usually needs to be stripped and re-sealed.

It is very important to ensure that tiles achieve their cleanest possible condition prior to being sealed. This will protect the appearance of the tile, and importantly ensure that there won't be any dirt, stains or other debris caught under the layer of sealant.

To provide the best possible protection from oil and water-based stains; to maintain the look and slip resistance of your granite and to prevent damaging moisture from being trapped within the stone, it is recommended to seal your granite with a high quality, invisible, fully breathable impregnating sealer.
