Tile stripping and sealing services
If you are using those old tiles day in and day out then the floor will lose its lustre over the time. You may be even having fire glazed tiles which do not require maintenance, still, we will suggest you to get sealing applied on them. Vinyl floors & Tiles need regular maintenance so that they can maintain their lustre & look new. It doesn't matter if you wipe your floor each day, still, the colour of tiles will get dull as time passes. So it is the one time investment you have to do to make your tiles look the best version of themselves. So hire some professionals and get some tile stripping and sealing services for the good health of your tiles.
Why stripping and sealing should be handled by professional and well experienced staff?
The most common mistake that many sealing workers do is that they directly apply the sealing without taking out the old disintegrated layer which then cracks easily forming an uncoloured & milky patch on the flooring. So yes resealing of floors is necessary, but it should be done in the right way.
Another common mistake made by the sealing staff is that they apply the sealant which is not matching to the particular type of surface of the floor. For example - The sealant which is water and oil resistant seals the porous natural stone surface the best. While this kind of proper combination is used it maintains the colour of the stone & also makes it more durable. On the other hand, solvent based sealers are best for Vinyl floors which endure high traffic.
So to avoid such silly mistakes while applying sealing to your floor we recommend you to get your sealing applied by some expert who has years of experience doing this.
