Terracotta floor cleaning is not the same as marble, slate, travertine or limestone cleaning. Terracotta Tiles are a beautiful and unique flooring option that adds character and charm to any home. But like any type of flooring, they require regular maintenance to keep them looking their best. Over time, dirt and grime can build up on the surface of the tiles, causing them to lose their shine. If left untreated, this build-up can also lead to permanent staining. That’s why it’s important to hire a professional with experience in terracotta floor cleaning, restoration and sealing. A professional will be able to clean your tiles without damaging them, and they will also be able to apply a protective sealant that will help to prevent staining in the future. With regular maintenance, your terracotta tiles will stay looking beautiful for years to come.

What is terracotta

Terracotta is a type of fired clay that is used to make a variety of products, including floors, roofs, and sculptures. It is typically reddish-brown in color and has a porous surface. Terracotta tiles are a great product for flooring and wall coverings in both commercial and residential applications. While terracotta is durable and attractive, it does require periodic sealing to prevent staining. In addition, terracotta sculptures are widely appreciated for their beauty and craftsmanship. These pieces can be found in both public and private collections around the world.

Terracotta Floor Cleaning Tips

Terracotta floors are a classic choice for any home. But terracotta requires a bit more care than other types of flooring. Here are a few tips on how to maintain and clean your terracotta floor tiles:

  • Sweep terracotta floors regularly with a soft broom or dust mop. Terracotta is a porous material, so it can easily become stained by dirt and grime.
  • If you spill something on your terracotta floor, be sure to clean it up immediately. Use a mild soap and warm water solution to avoid damaging the tiles.
  • Terracotta floors should be sealed every few years to protect them from stains and dirt. You can buy a terracotta sealer from most home improvement stores.
  • Be sure to use mats or rugs at all entranceways to your home. This will help to reduce the amount of dirt and debris from your terracotta floors.
  • With a little bit of care, your terracotta floors will look beautiful for years to come.

Sealing your terracotta floor after cleaning

Terracotta floors are notoriously difficult to keep clean. Spills, dirt, and grime can quickly build up on terracotta surfaces, leaving them looking dull and lacklustre. Regular cleaning & sealing of your terracotta floor helps to protect them from stains and dirt. Sealing terracotta is also a relatively simple process. Terracotta sealant can be applied with a brush or roller, and it typically only needs to be done once every few years. In addition, sealing terracotta helps to preserve the natural color of the clay, giving your floors a vibrant and fresh look.

Hire a Professional Company for Your Stone Floor Cleaning & Sealing

When cleaning the terracotta floor it is important to allow sufficient time before sealing. The moisture from the tiles must escape before any sealing. Putting the sealer too early may trap the moisture which can cause white blotches throughout your floor. Restoring such floors might be a very difficult and expensive process. Make sure you have your floors cleaned by a professional company. If you pay little to less you might lose everything. If you pay a little bit more you only “lose” a little.
