Porcelain Tile Floor Cleaning Birmingham
Porcelain tiles are great looking tiles which can be used for flooring in many areas of the home as well as public and commercial buildings. As a comparatively dense and hard wearing tile, porcelain makes an excellent choice for flooring. Porcelain tiles are kiln fired from clay and sand at a higher temperature than other similar tiles, which makes them tougher than, for example, their ceramic cousins. In fact, porcelain tiles are so tough they can even be used outside. Despite this, if porcelain tiles are not properly looked after they will degrade like any other tile. Tile & Stone Medic Birmingham provide the full range of porcelain tile floor cleaning services, handling everything from basic polishing to full deep cleaning, stripping and resealing.

Restoring porcelain tiled floors
Most often, porcelain tiles are secured in place using white grouting, the kind you might associate with bathroom tiles. Due to its white colour and porous nature, this grout can be particularly vulnerable to dirt and moisture, which looks unsightly and also makes it easier for dirt to become engrained into the porcelain. Whilst cleaning your porcelain tiles, our floor technicians can also tend to your grouting, recolouring where necessary to eliminate dirt and protect your tiles.

How we clean porcelain tiles
Every floor presents its own unique challenges arising from natural variations in the tile and the amount of use the floor has to withstand. Generally, we follow a similar workflow for each porcelain floor we service, with each step tailored for best results. The first stage is tackling any surface dirt which may interfere with any subsequent cleaning. Once the surface dirt is gone, we use specially formulated solutions to unseat deeper, more engrained dirt. When our solutions have worked their magic, the floor is fully washed and neutralised. At this stage, any minor damage becomes more obvious and small repairs can take place. The porcelain is then ready for polishing, either to a high sheen or a matt finish. When you are happy with our cleaning and polishing, we then progress to sealing the porcelain to protect it from moisture and ensure your clean floor stays looking great for as long as possible.
Porcelain is known for being a tough material for tiles, but unfortunately it remains susceptible to the same wear and tear than most tiles suffer from. Repeated footfall and other usage of the floor will eventually wear at the protective coating and leave the tiles underneath vulnerable to scratches and other damage. Care should always be taken when selecting cleaning products to use on porcelain, as the wrong chemical can dissolve protective layers and even eat away at the tile. Even the best kept floors will eventually start to loose their lustre and look a little dull, a natural consequence of the passage of time.
