Restore the natural look of tiles

in Tile

When it comes to flooring or walls, tiles and stones are the two most common materials used. While these materials are strong and can last long, their shine usually recedes with time. There are many factors responsible for this, such as accidental liquid or other solvent spills, scratches or cracks due to falling down of heavy products etc. Even if these factors are kept aside, time will be a contributing factor. With time, the natural shine of tiles may get affected. It hence becomes important to opt for tile and stone restoration services. Along with restoring the natural shiny look of tiles, such services ensure stainless and speckless surface.

Restoration process

Tile and stones are completely different materials and hence, they require different cleansing products. Not only this, there are further categories under such products such as there are natural stones as well as the ones that are manufactured artificially. The natural ones are more porous and for this reason, they easily react with different materials causing a harm to their shine and natural look. The restoration process removes such spots and stains and ensures that the shiny look of surface is retained back.

The process begins with identifying the type of stains and the stone. This is because on one hand different stains have different degree of hardness. Some are easy to be removed and some are stiff and require strong chemicals. On the other hand, even stones come in different categories and for this reason different solvents or chemicals need to be used. Chemicals should be such that they do not hamper with the natural quality and look of the stone. All these things can be ensured only by a professional.

While such things can be used for both tile and stone restoration, tiles in particular may require different restoration services such as grouting and sealing. Basically, tiles are placed on a surface and the spacing in between tiles is filled using a powder called grout. This grout gives the tiles and the whole surface an even look. However, as the grout turns old, it may develop cracks and may fall down. Restoration process if opted, will also ensure refilling of these empty grout spaces. Besides this, such services may even include recoloring the grout (if required). There is just no end to the ways and materials that can be used to bring back the original look of tiles. One just needs to ensure that he hands over the task to experts, for they will ensure a clean and tidy task.
