Most homeowners understand their tile and grout requires sealing, cleaning, and in some cases, polishing in order to preserve the longevity, aesthetics and overall condition of the tile. A deep cleaning alone can make a significant difference in the vibrancy of the tile and grout, which restores the tile like new. The sealants are designed to act as a barrier to prevent stains and other compromising elements from occurring to the tile and grout. Polishing is another a restoration application that makes a difference in the look in the tile’s appearance. Tile can reflect and shine with polishing. Today, we at Silver State Floor Restoration would like to further discuss polishing services.
What Does Polished Mean for Tile?
A simple service a professional can get done quickly is polishing your tile and it restores the protective layer of finish. The polishing clears away the nicks, scratches, and other minor blemishes while it shines the surface. Polishing is optimally done following a professional deep cleaning service. Polishing the tile should be done once every 1 to 4 months, depending on the foot traffic. Important maintenance steps that keep your tile glowing in correlation with your daily maintenance, dusting, dry mopping, spot cleaning, and washing the surface includes professional deep cleaning, sealing and polishing.
Can Porcelain & Ceramic Tiles Be Polished?

You can polish porcelain, ceramic, marble, travertine, and other natural stone tile, generally. Depending on the manufactured finish, dictates polishing service. Though in many cases a polishing can restore sparkly to many different types of tiles, the surface simply needs a deep cleaning, sealing, and possibly a buffing in some instances.

Can You Polish the Floors in Your Home Yourself?
When it comes to DIY polishing, most manufacturers would advise against it and in some cases, and it can void your warranty. While some products can be effective, there are many instances where people ruin their tile floor. Ultimately, owners should focus on the daily maintenance by keeping the dirt and debris removed, controlling the moisture exposure and spot cleaning any spots or residues. Daily removal of the debris can be easily done with a dust mop, broom, or a vacuum set to “bare floor.” If you opt to use the vacuum, make sure the bar is not rotating as it could cause slight scuff marks and scratches. You can prevent it from penetrating the into the porous grout by increasing the duration between professional cleaning as you keep the dirt contained. Because of the porous nature, maintaining the tile and grout is ideal to prevent mildew and mold growth. It also prevents staining as tending to the spills not only controls the moisture exposure.
