Choosing the right new tiles for your home is very important. Brisbane, Ipswich, gold coast and the Sunshine Coast have many different tile shops that can offer a huge range of tiles to suit your circumstances. But after the tiles have been laid, you will also need to know how best to look after them. This is where knowing your local tile cleaner is important. A professional tile cleaning company can help to prolong the life of the tiles and also help in the removal of stains such as tea or coffee and even red wine. All of these drinks can permanently stain the grout and the tile.
Solution to Slippery Tiles
Slippery tiles can be a problem and even dangerous. Most tiles are very slippery when they become wet. To help prevent this, a tile cleaner can apply a clear coat over the surface. This coating will also seal the tiles, so the surface becomes resistant to staining.
The first thing to do is to have the tiles professionally cleaned. This is done by applying a heavy duty cleaning solution to the surface and then steam clean it off. This will thoroughly clean the surface before the clear coat is applied.
The preparation of the surface is very important. This is why it’s best to hire the services of a professional tile cleaner that can remove all of the dirt and grime from the tiles and the grout. If the surface is not totally cleaned, then the sealing solution will not adhere to the surface properly and after a short time it will start to peel.
Environment-Friendly Products and Solutions
The cleaning solutions used are environmentally friendly and will leave no grease or contaminants on the surface. If the surface is not prepared properly when the sealer is applied, it will trap bacteria and dirt that has not been removed.
The product used to seal the tiles and grout will leave a non-slip coating on the tiles. This is very good for elderly people that may live on their own and be at risk of falling. Falling onto a hard surface like tiles can cause serious injury and even end up with a trip to the hospital. Having a professional into clean and seal the surface of your tiles can mean a safer home.
Application of the Non-Slip Solution
The non-slip solution can also be applied to the shower tray. This not only makes it safer to get in and out of, but it also puts a protective barrier over the surface that will stop soap and water from marking the tiles and grout. The water in our pipes today can be very harsh. This, combined with the shampoos and soaps we use, can cause a build-up of dirt and grime that is very hard to remove with normal house hold cleaners.
A non-slip solution can be applied to many different surfaces, from ceramic tiles, porcelain and polished porcelain tiles and concrete. The product has to be applied in an even manner or it will not dry over the whole surface and may leave a patchy look to the tiles. So using the correct application tool and having an experienced technician doing the work is very important for a guaranteed job.
