What is Terracotta?
Terracotta floors are known for their rustic charms and warm tones, they have been around for many centuries and are formed of fired clay, they are known for their strength and durability.
Terracotta floors are very porous and require sealing to stop dirt and stains entering the pores of the stone.
Colour's and textures vary from sumptuous rich oranges, reds, browns to mellow honey tones
We find that the Terracotta floors and grout lines have become dirty and the floor has lost its luster and shine due to incorrect cleaning processes, often wax seals wear and make the floor look very worn and tired.
The cleaning process we use depends on the condition of the Terracotta floor, some Terracotta floors will still have their wax coats intact and require a good deep clean. This usually involves deep cleaning the tiles and grout lines, allowing the floor to dry for a week before returning and applying new wax coats.
If the seals have been worn away then the floor will require a full strip of the existing wax coats and new wax coats applied, this is a more involved process than the above notably stripping the floor and applying one of the two systems below.
There are basically two systems (and lots of variations for both)
1. The traditional oil & wax treatment.
2. The modern, synthetic approach.
We prefer to use the modern method because it produces a better harder wearing finish and reduces the maintenance required.
Terracotta floors become dirty and dull looking, the wax finish gets worn away and deteriorates the Terracotta tiles and the grout lines become very dirty.
