Saltillo Tile Cleaning
Saltillo tile is a very porous tile made from clay that is baked to harden it. Many homes and businesses have this type of flooring due to its beautiful appearance. Saltillo tile needs to be properly maintained to keep it looking its best. Because it is a porous material a penetrating sealer should be applied. Typically this is applied when the floor is installed. Then the floor can have additional coatings applied which will provide years of trouble free maintenance. Daniel Cleans recommends having an acrylic sealer and finish applied to the flooring. To maintain the flooring sweep regularly and mop with a neutral ph floor cleaner. There are many brands of neutral cleaners. A good place to shop for one is at your local hardware store such as Lowes. When the floor has been properly treated it can be maintained by doing a deep clean and recoating every few years. Eventually the old sealer and finish will need to be strpped off. Performing a full strip and recoat is very labor intensive process that must be performed by a qualified company to get the best results. Daniel Cleans has cleaned many Saltillo floors with great success. The key to a great job is the prep work.
