Introduction to Terracota Floor Restoration

Terracotta is a clay-based tile that is available in an unglazed or glazed finish, popular for both interior and exterior decoration. Terracotta tiles exude warmth with their reddish-brown colouration and offer great flexibility in their design. This comes down to the fact that tiles are available in a variety of colours, sizes and finishes.

A ceramic terracotta tile offers a range of benefits including;

  • An environmentally friendly tile choice; the tiles are manufactured using natural materials
  • Offers cleanliness; glazed tiles do not retain odours, bacteria or allergens and work to repel liquid spillages
  • Incredible versatility; the range of tile size, colouration and textures available offer a limitless design capability for new terracotta floors
  • A fire resistant alterative; due to the way in which it is manufactured, the surface of terracotta tiles cannot be scorched or melted

Terracotta tile restoration and the cleaning of grout are notoriously challenging. Shop purchased tile solutions, mopping and incorrect cleaning techniques will be unlikely to remove ground-in dirt or stains.

We have vast experience in the professional cleaning and restoration of Terracotta flooring. The tiles and grout are deep cleaned to restore bright, spotless and hygienically clean tiles and grout lines. A superior finish is achieved and as a result will offer enhanced character.

Our industrial stone cleaning systems combine the use of heat, power, specialist cleaning solutions and high-pressure. Once the cleaning process has been completed, a Terracotta sealer is then applied to offer natural protection against liquid spillages and wear.

Successful restoration of Terracotta tiles requires experience, knowledge and an in-depth understanding of its individual intricacies. We work to provide a fast and efficient stone restoration service that offers flawlessly cleaned stone floors.
