Porcelain tile cleaning
Porcelain tiles are generally easy to clean, which is why they are becoming so popular in new builds. However in our experience our customers are finding it difficult to keep the surface shiny, without an expensive and bulky buffing machine. Any build-up of soapy suds is often the cause of the cloudiness. The best way to avoid these streaks is to use a pH neutral cleaning solution that’s very dilute.
For occasional deep cleaning of tiles and grout lines, we use a heavy duty rotary machine with strong bristles that reach shallow or deep grooves that you couldn’t reach with your standard mop. We thoroughly rinse the tiles with the pH neutral cleaner and wait for it to dry before applying an optional sealant to the grout lines.
Porcelain tiles are a type of ceramic tile and is the name for some materials made after heating. Ceramic tiles don’t fade in sunlight and are resilient to high temperatures, making them fire-resistant. The clay used to build porcelain tiles is generally denser, giving it a much lower water absorption rate of less than 0.5 percent. With such a low density it is almost impossible for any impregnating sealant to stick to the surface, so we don’t often offer it to our customers. However we do offer it for porous grouting.
Unglazed tiles can be porous and subject to staining, which can be difficult to remove. Some floor tiles can be glazed, however it will consist of protruding particles to keep it slip-resistant. Glazed tiles are stain resistant and very popular for use on the walls of bathrooms, kitchens and restaurants where frequent washing is required.

Porcelain vitrified tiles have a dense, hard surface made by polishing to a shine, a viable alternative to a glazed surface. This means that a tile can be fired, then a polish cut into the surface, creating a shine without a glaze.
Porcelain is denser and therefore heavier to handle than other ceramic tiles. For this reason, it is generally more expensive. Being harder, it is more difficult to cut and drill and requires specialist tools, which can hamper fitting and increase costs. Polished porcelain tile cleaning may need sealing, where ordinary glazed tiles do not. When porcelain is first made, it is not absorbent, but the polishing process for making the unglazed surface shiny cuts into the surface, leaving it more porous and prone to absorbing stains, in the same way as natural stone tiles. Unless the manufacturer applies a suitable, long-lasting treatment, it may be advisable to apply a porcelain sealant to prevent seepage of dirt.
