In order to preserve the longevity, aesthetics, and overall condition of the tile, most homeowners understand that tile maintenance includes cleaning, sealing, and in some cases, polishing. From the porous tile and grout, professionals use powerful equipment to clean the deep-rooted soil, moisture, and debris the public simply cannot. To make a significant difference in the vibrancy of the tile and grout and make it look like new can be done with a deep cleaning alone. Acting as a barrier and resisting stains and other compromising elements from occurring to the tile and grout, the sealing is another necessary step, usually at least once a year or more. The look in the tile’s appearance can see a huge difference where polishing is applicable. Polishing allows the tile to reflect and shine. Today, we Silver State Floor Restoration would like to further elaborate on polishing your tile.
Best Time for Polishing is After Cleaning & Sealing
Polishing your tile restores the protective layer of finish and it is a simple service a professional can get done quickly. While it shines the surface, the polishing clears away the nicks, scratches, and other minor blemishes. Following a professional deep cleaning and sealing service is ideally when you want to have the tile polished. Depending on the foot traffic, polishing should be done anywhere from once every 1-4 months to maintain the luster. Professional deep cleaning, sealing and polishing are important maintenance steps that keep your tile glowing in addition to your own efforts such as dusting, dry mopping, spot cleaning, and washing the surface.
Porcelain, Marble, Travertine & Other Types Suitable to Be Polished
Where other tile types should avoid polishing, there are different tile materials that are required to be polished on a routine basis. Polished tiles usually include ceramic, porcelain, marble, travertine, and other natural stone tile. The polishing service process is usually dictated by the manufactured finish. You can contact a professional for an on-sight consultation in the event you are ever unsure about the type of tile or if it should be polished. In some instances, the surface simply needs a deep cleaning, sealing, and possibly a buffing, though in many cases a polishing can restore sparkly to many different types of tile. The technician can educate you on the needs of your tile if you are uncertain of important maintenance needs.
DIY VS Professional Tile Polishing
Most manufacturers would advise against doing any DIY polishing and in some cases, it can void your warranty. There are quite a few cases where people ruin their tile floor and less when products are actually effective. Keeping the dirt and debris removed, controlling the moisture exposure and spot cleaning any spots or residues should be the primary focus of your daily maintenance. With a dust mop, broom, or a vacuum set to “bare floor,” daily removal of the debris can be easily done. Ensure the bar is not rotating as it could cause slight scuff marks and scratches if you prefer vacuuming. You can increase the duration between professional cleaning by keeping the dirt contained can prevent it from penetrating the into the porous grout. To prevent mildew and mold growth, keeping the tile and grout clean and dry due to the porous nature. You can easily prevent staining and control moisture exposure by immediately treating spills.
