Testimonials

When I moved into my new house, I was shocked by how dirty and old the tiles in the entire house looked. I wasn't sure if they were supposed to be like that or if they were just really dirty. I decided to call Tile Cleaners Brisbane® and ask them to have a look and tell me what I could do to improve the look of my tiles. Tile Cleaners Brisbane® came the same weekend and managed to make my tiles look brand new. They also informed me that the sealer would protect my tiles for years to come. Amazing! Thank you guys! My floor looks gorgeous.

All porous natural and man-made tiles should be sealed. Sealing your stone will help prevent & reduce staining by keeping most stains suspended at the surface. Sealing provides protection against chemical attack, deterioration and contamination and also reduces the damage caused from the stain itself.

Natural stone is amongst the most durable materials for floor and wall coverings, also boasting some of the lowest abrasion values. For non-porous tiles you should usually only need to seal the grout lines with our specialised impregnating penetrating sealer.

All natural stone is porous to different degrees. To protect your stone an impregnating sealer should be applied which is similar to a topical sealer but doesn't create a film on top of the stone, instead it sits within the stones pores.

The idea of using sealers on stone surface is to prevent water from penetrating the porous structure of the stone, which eventually leads to stains, cracks, weathering, and deterioration. Sealing your tiles and/or grout helps prevent & reduce staining by providing a barrier against stain carrying substances. Sealing is the first important step towards protecting your investment against stains.

Finally, to dispel what you might have read or heard about sealing artificial or manmade stone tiles such as terracotta, these are in fact more porous than natural stone and will need frequent applications of stain inhibitors, sealers, resins and polishes.

Stone Sealing Process

We can help you clean & restore the following materials:


What Exactly Is A Sealer?

A sealer is a liquid, or carrier containing a resin that is applied to porous natural stone or porous man made surfaces that helps prevent staining from water and/or oil based materials as well as help to achieve better results when cleaning your tiles

You can easily test how porous your surfaces are by applying a drop 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 surface.

Why should I have my stone tiles sealed?

A sealer reduces the natural absorbency of a stone. A natural stone surface once prepared and sealed correctly can add a great deal of style to your property and give it a real feature relative to your desired look whether that is modern and contemporary or more traditional.

Sealing your tiles and/or grout helps prevent & reduce staining. It provides a barrier for a short time to remove the staining product and helps reduce the damage caused from the stain itself. Staining can still occur if the staining product is not removed from the tile.

What type of sealer should I use on my stone tile?

There are so many sealers on the market today and it can be confusing to know which sealer is the correct choice for your tile. Which one will work, which one won't, which sealer suits your situation and how they differ?

Types of Sealers we use

Tile Cleaners Brisbane® uses two main types of sealer to protect your surfaces. One sealer is known as an Impregnating Sealer (Penetrating Sealer) which is absorbed into the tile protecting it from within and the other is known as a Topical Sealer which sits on top of (coats) the tile.

Tile Cleaners Brisbane® are proud to be accredited applicators of Deepshield™ quality deep impregnating water based sealers which prolong the life of your surfaces by taking full advantage of recent advancements in nano-technology and fluoro-bond technology. Australian made Deepshield™ forms a bond with your surfaces that is stronger than any conventional mechanical or hydrogen bonding film forming sealers.

Tile Cleaners Brisbane® technicians are experts at applying all types of sealer and will ensure your surfaces look their absolute best. Tile Cleaners Brisbane® can apply a topical sealer when especially required to create a high gloss, satin sheen or matte finish to your surfaces. Topical sealers can be helpful in situations where the old solvent based sealer can't be completely removed or when required to hide certain types of damage. Topical sealers typically have a life expectancy of around 3 years while impregnating sealers such as the Deepshield™ range of impregnating water based sealer's offer long term benefits lasting for up to 10 years while Deepshield™ Gold, based on the latest fluoro-bond technology will last for up to 15 years.

Deep Penetrating Impregnating Sealer

(Transparent Finish/Colour Enhancing Finish)

Impregnating sealers are safe for stone and highly recommended. These sealers sit below the surface of your tile and deposit solid particles into the pores of your stone coating the individual minerals below.

Even when the tile has been sealed before with an impregnating sealer there is no need to strip the old sealer(as with Topical Sealer) before reapplying, most aren't affected by UV light, and high quality penetrating sealers do not require frequent applications.

Impregnating sealers do not alter the slip resistant properties of the tile, meaning that if the tile is not a slippery tile then it will stay non-slip, making it the recommended sealer for most cases where slipping may be a risk.

Impregnating sealers used by Tile Cleaners Brisbane® usually have a lifetime of up to 10 years. In areas where salt water is near, the lifetime of our sealer may be reduced to 8 years instead because salt can reduce the lifetime of the product.

How Do Impregnating Sealers Work?

In an impregnating sealer the "active component" is either a natural or a synthetic resin. This resin is melted into a liquid solution with a mineral solvent or with water.

Impregnating Sealer properties

  • Penetrates into the stone and attaches its protection to the cell walls within the pore structure. This allows for total vapour transmission through the stone.
  • Does not change the colour or sheen of the stone.
  • Does not need to be re-applied after each cleaning.
  • Because the sealer does not remain on the surface, the sealer coating will not scratch or scuff. Without a surface coating to wear off, the sealer does not require re-application as frequently as topical sealers.

What Sets Impregnating Sealers Apart?

Solvent or water based sealer?

A solvent based sealer absorbs deep into the stone but emits a very strong odour and is trickier to apply. There have been a few reports of solvent based sealers reacting negatively to certain stones that have a factory applied resin. It's always safest to test a scrap or small inconspicuous area first. Solvent carried impregnators are excellent water repellents but do not usually repel oil stains.

A water based sealer is easier to apply and safer to handle as well as safer for the environment. Water carried impregnators are excellent oil repellents as well as excellent water repellents.

Does it repel water, repel oil, or resist oil?

Not all sealers work the same. Some sealers just repel water. These are called Hydrophobic. A hydrophobic type sealer repels water based liquids such as coffee, soft drink and tea.

Sealers that repel oil are called Oilophobic an oilophobic type sealer repels oil based liquids such as cooking oil and grease AS WELL AS water based liquids.

An oilophobic sealer will always repel BOTH oil and water based chemicals whereas a hydrophobic sealer doesn't always repel oil based chemicals.

Our impregnating water based sealers are Oilophobic, meaning that they repel both water and oil based chemicals.

Topical Sealer

(Gloss/Satin/Matte Finish)

Sometimes a Topical Sealer is referred to as a "coating" because this is exactly what it does, it coats the surface of your stone with a protective barrier. It's essentially a layer or thin film sitting on top of your stone.

Topical sealers are either removable (through stripping) or permanent. Removable coatings are designed to easily be stripped from the surface of stone and are usually water based. Most strippable coatings are NOT designed for natural stone, however nowadays there are high quality water based sealers also available for stone.

Permanent coatings are very difficult to remove and are usually NOT designed for stone either. It's important to ask an expert to determine which topical sealer is safe to use on your particular surface.

What will a topical sealer do?

It will help prevent your tile from scuffing, scratching and staining. The sealer will scuff and scratch instead. The downfall is since the sealer is softer than your stone it can scuff and scratch fairly easily, which means they are short lived and frequent reapplication is necessary.

Before reapplying, old topical sealer needs to be removed and frequent stripping can cause damage to your tile or stone. If you don't remove the sealer before applying a new coat, eventually these coatings will build up and cause your tile to have an unnatural wavy or plastic look. This is called “stripping” the sealer.

Bottom of the barrel topical sealers can cause your tile to turn a yellowish colour, especially when exposed to UV light. They can change the appearance of your tile and may react adversely to heat and acids.

Topical sealers are usually easy to apply and much less expensive than impregnating sealers. Some add additional shine to your tile and some even add slip resistant properties. But the need to frequently strip and reapply, or buff should be taken into consideration as well as the location of your tile.

Tile Cleaners Brisbane® technicians apply the highest quality water based sealers providing the highest level of protection.

Pre-sealed stone

In most cases we will be able to chemically remove your existing floor finish (sealer) and treat any staining and marks that will have occurred due to the ineffectiveness of your floor seal. When we are satisfied that we have achieved the best results possible, preferably by returning the floor to its natural state, then we allow a sufficient drying time before applying the needed number of coats of our specialist floor tile seal depending on the type of the floor.

Types of Stone that can be sealed

All stone should be treated carefully during the installation process and should be sealed as they can easily be stained by a range of substances. The sealing can be completed after the stone have been laid or when construction is complete.

Limestone, Sandstone, Slate and pavers are common products which require maintenance. This maybe a top up seal or it may require all the existing sealer to be stripped, bringing back the natural beauty of the stone, then re sealed.

Tile Cleaners Brisbane® provides their customers with excellent value for money stone care and maintenance services. We only use quality products which will enhance and protect your quality stone.

How often does the sealer on stone need to be applied?

Some stone sealers need to be applied every year, some every 3- 5 years, and penetrating sealers may last up to 15 years or even longer. This will depend on the type of resin used and on the type of use the tiles are intended for. The resin used is the most important factor because this resin is left behind to do the work.

Sealing Grout Lines

Not all stone requires sealing, but even for those stone tiles than don't require sealing you can and should always seal the grout lines.

Grout Sealers prevent spills from penetrating into the porous grout. Our impregnating penetrating water based grout sealer repels water and oil based liquids, prevents stains caused by food and beverages and protects the grout from dirt and impurities.

After cleaning your grout it is recommended to apply an impregnating water based sealer specifically designed for grout that creates resistance to spills and stains. This also results in your grout becoming much easier clean in the future and makes your grout look cleaner for longer. There are different sealers for grout with varying qualities and prices. Check our website for advice on sealing your type of tile & grout or call us and our knowledgeable customer service can help you with all your enquiries.

The extra layer of protection from sealing the grout can be applied to grout in kitchens, shops, swimming pool surrounds & showrooms and most other areas in your home or business.

Stripping and Sealing

While sealing your stone and grout means that they will be protected, is it important to keep in mind that the previously applied sealer may need to be removed and reapplied in future depending on the quality of the sealer applied to your stone and the amount of traffic. This process is called tile stripping and sealing, which involves stripping, scrubbing and cleaning to remove old sealant and its residue and restoring the original appearance of the tiles. We can strip and reseal any hard surface flooring as well as wall tiles.

No matter where your stone tiles are, Tile Cleaners Brisbane® technicians will strip, clean and professionally reseal them for you, in your kitchen, shower, bathroom, around the swimming pool, your backyard, outdoors or any hard to reach indoor areas.

Grout Recolouring

A variety of colours are available and an added advantage of grout recolouring is that the product we use also doubles as the highest quality sealer available allowing much easier cleaning of the grout in the future.

Maintaining the Appearance of Stone Tiles after Sealing

The best time to seal stone and/or grout lines is immediately after installation, but if not done initially it is still extremely beneficial to seal stone surfaces immediately once they have been professional cleaned by Tile Cleaners Brisbane® technicians.

After any sealing, we provide each customer with a simple stone maintenance program and recommend a cleaning product to suit your requirements.

Sealing of grout and porous stone (such as marble, granite, travertine, limestone, sandstone, slate etc.) is necessary to protect them from premature decay and contamination. Even very old stone tiles and grout can be cleaned and resealed to give them back a new lease on life!
