You might be tempted to take the DIY approach when it comes to tile and grout sealing, but this isn’t recommended. Only trained professionals should be entrusted with this task due to the in-depth knowledge that’s required of various tile types, sealants and stripping agents. It’s vital to use the right products and techniques to avoid costly mistakes such as missed spots, uneven coverage or potential damage to tiled surfaces. Hiring a professional for tile sealing services is the best way to save time and achieve superior results while ensuring the job is done safely.
It’s important to remember that most tiles are porous, which means they’re susceptible to damage such as staining and scratching. Sealers are required to protect and preserve them so they stay looking beautiful for as long as possible. However, sealers don’t last forever, and they usually need to be stripped away and reapplied once every few years. Fortunately, we can get the job done with our tile stripping and sealing service.
Before carrying out tile sealing in Melbourne, our technicians use the best tools and techniques to strip old sealers and clean the tiles of all chemical residue. We can then apply a fresh coat of sealant that’s appropriate for the type of floor you have. Our tile and regrout sealing service will make your tiles look as good as new, prevent permanent damage, provide protection, extend their lifespan and achieve an anti-slip effect.
Tile sealing is a protective process that helps safeguard both tiles and grout from various forms of damage. Sealing tile floors creates a barrier against stains, moisture and dirt, preventing these substances from penetrating the porous materials of the tiles and grout.
The main difference between tile sealing and grout sealing lies in the materials they protect. Tile sealing focuses on the tiles themselves, while grout sealing specifically targets the grout lines. Grout sealing can prevent grout from absorbing stains and dirt, while tile sealing can enhance the overall durability of your tiles.
How long it takes to strip and seal tiles can vary based on factors like the size of the area and the type of sealant used. On average, our tile sealing services can take anywhere from a few hours to a full day to complete. This includes surface preparation, application of the sealant and drying time.
The frequency of sealing tiles can depend on the type of tiles, the amount of foot traffic and the specific sealant used. In general, we recommended tile stripping and sealing every 2 to 3 years. High-traffic areas or more porous tiles might require more frequent tile sealing for optimal protection.
Tile sealing is suitable for a wide range of tile materials, including but not limited to ceramic, porcelain, natural stone (like marble, granite and travertine) and even some types of engineered tiles. The team at Impress Tile Grout Cleaning & Seal will check the suitability of your tiles for sealing prior to commencing our tile sealing services.
