Give Your Terracotta Floors
A Fresh New Look!



Welcome to Floor Care Cleaning Services. We specialise in the meticulous care and maintenance of terracotta floors.

 

Terracotta, which means "baked earth" in Italian, refers to tiles made from naturally fired clay. They are known for their hand-made, unique sumptuous, rich oranges, reds, and browns to mellow honey tones, rustic texture, warmth, natural beauty, and durability. 


Our comprehensive services include deep cleaning, impregnating, resealing, and waxing, ensuring your terracotta floors remain beautiful and durable for years.
 
Over time, terracotta floors and grout lines become dirty, and the wax finish coats become worn, lose their shine, and become tired-looking due to age and incorrect cleaning processes. 

We are committed to delivering exceptional service and exceeding our customers' expectations.

The cleaning process we use depends on the condition of the terracotta floor. Some Terracotta floors still have their wax coats intact, requiring deep cleaning and a new wax seal coat.

This usually involves deep cleaning the tiles and grout lines, allowing the floor to dry for a week, and then returning and applying new wax coats.
 
If the seals have worn away, the floor will require a full strip to remove the existing wax coats and apply new wax coats; this is a more involved process than the above, notably stripping the floor and applying an impregnator and new wax coats.
 
Refurbishing terracotta involves several key steps:

Cleaning: Begin with a thorough deep cleaning to remove all dirt, stains, and old sealants.

Stripping: Remove old wax coats with solvent-based wax removers.

Impregnating: Apply an impregnating sealer to protect the tiles so they are ready for wax seal coats.

Waxing: Finish with a wax application to enhance the tile's natural shine and provide extra protection.



 


Terracotta floors, while stunning and unique, can present several issues over time:

Staining: Due to their porous nature, terracotta tiles are susceptible to staining from spills and dirt.

Efflorescence: Moisture seeping through the tiles from under the floor can cause white, powdery deposits on the surface.

Cracks and Chips: Heavy traffic and impacts can cause cracks and chips in the tiles.

Fading and Dullness: Over time, exposure to sunlight and wear can cause the colours to fade and the surface to lose its shine and wax polish finish.


Mould and Mildew: Terracotta can harbour mould and mildew in damp environments if it is not properly waxed and sealed.

Terracotta, meaning "baked earth" in Italian, is a type of ceramic made from natural clay. It is fired at low temperatures, which gives it its distinctive reddish-brown, orange and yellow colour and porous nature.

Terracotta tiles are valued for their rustic charm and natural beauty, making them a popular choice for both indoor and outdoor flooring.


To keep your terracotta floors looking their best between professional maintenance, follow these tips:

Regular Sweeping and Vacuuming: Remove dirt and debris regularly to prevent scratching the surface.

Mopping: Use a damp mop with a pH-neutral cleaner to clean the tiles without damaging the sealant.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Don't use acidic or abrasive cleaners, which can strip the wax sealant and damage the tiles.

Immediate Spill Cleanup: Wipe up spills immediately to prevent staining.

Use Mats and Rugs: Place mats at entrances and rugs in high-traffic areas to reduce wear and tear.
