Testimonials

We got our tiles more than 25 years ago. We were told that we had a solvent sealer on our tiles, which apparently most companies wouldn't be able to strip off. However we rang a couple of places to check them out. No luck. A friend of mine recommended Tile Cleaners. We rang the guys and they agreed to have a look the next day. We decided to go ahead with the job after getting a satisfactory quote. Tile Cleaners team stripped and resealed our old tiles. We are very grateful for your help guys. Thank you again.

Tile Cleaners Sydney® prides itself on providing Australia's best bluestone stripping and sealing service. Our years of experience in the field of tile and stone protection results in your bluestone looking its absolute best, protected against staining and deterioration for the longest possible time.

Bluestone tiles are quite porous and should be sealed to preserve their appearance and protect against staining and deterioration caused by everyday wear. Sealed or not sealed, we can help; our team of tile care professionals will achieve the best results for your bluestone tiles.

When your bluestone tiles begin to appear dull and start to stain easily, that means your previous sealer is wearing off and your tiles are in danger of permanent damage. Tile Cleaners Sydney® strip/remove all necessary worn sealer from your bluestone tiles, restoring their fresh look using our advanced, proven equipment; we then seal your bluestone tiles with one of our top quality water based products.

All porous tiles should be sealed. Sealing keeps most stains suspended at the surface of your bluestone, creating a barrier that provides protection against chemical attack, deterioration and contamination. Sealing is the first important step towards protecting your natural bluestone against stains.

What is Bluestone?

The name "bluestone" is not a geological term and does not fall within any distinct category such as igneous, sedimentary or metamorphic. The name “bluestone” represents some different rock types, so for example bluestone found in the UK can be a different stone altogether when compared with the 2 prominent varieties of bluestone found in Australia. In Victoria, bluestone generally refers to a basalt formed from the rapid cooling of lava, whereas in South Australia the name bluestone is generally given to a form of slate. Bluestone can be used indoors and out – for cladding, paving, stairs, coping, kitchen and bathroom counter tops, pool surrounds, garden edging, commercial and domestic flooring and retaining walls. Victorian bluestone will generally be black or grey, while bluestone slate has a more beige colour. Bluestone has a high degree of slip resistance.

Cleaning Bluestone Tiles

Tile Cleaners Sydney® are your specialist service provider for all bluestone tile & grout cleaning. If you need advice on how to clean your old or brand new bluestone surfaces and tile grout and how best to reseal your bluestone so it stays looking new, or need a professional to do it for you then you have come to the right place.

Different cleaning and maintenance methods should be used on bluestone depending on its finish and whether it's sealed or left in its natural state. In general, bluestone tiles should be cleaned and maintained with non acidic products and it is recommended to have bluestone professionally cleaned every few years to maintain their appearance and restore the fresh look once the tiles start to appear tired following regular daily use.

Bluestone, like other calcareous stones, is referred to as acid sensitive. Calcareous stones are readily dissolved in acid, therefore acidic products should not be used on Bluestone tiles.

Sealing Bluestone Tiles

Two main sealing options exist for Bluestone tiles

  • Deep Penetrating Impregnating Sealer
  • (Transparent Finish/Colour Enhancing Finish)

  • Topical Sealer
  • (Gloss/Satin/Matte Finish)

    deepshield moisture bluestone

    Tile Cleaners Sydney® recommend penetrating water based sealers for bluestone wherever possible. Transparent penetrating sealers are designed to maintain the natural look and feel of your bluestone. Australia's Deepshield® GOLD offers long term benefits, protecting your bluestone surface and grout from absorbing stains for up to 15 years by chemically reacting with the surface pores to form a long lasting breathable protective barrier.

    An impregnating transparent sealer once cured inside the pores of your stone will not change the texture or appearance of your bluestone. A penetrating colour enhancing sealer is designed to enhance and enrich the look of bluestone tiles.

    Tile Cleaners Sydney® are experts at applying all types of sealer and will ensure your bluestone looks its absolute best. Tile Cleaners Sydney® experienced technicians can apply a topical sealer when especially required to create a high gloss, satin sheen or matte finish to your surfaces. Topical sealer is also helpful in situations where the old solvent based sealer can not be completely removed or when required to hide certain types of damage. Topical sealer's have a life expectancy of 3-5 years.

    You can easily test how porous your bluestone is by applying a small amount of water to the surface and watching how it is absorbed. You can then see how any type of water based stain can be absorbed by the bluestone tile surface and grout.

Types of sealers used on bluestone tiles

Water based sealer's and solvent-based sealers can both be used on bluestone, however unless absolutely required for a specific reason we always recommend applying a water based sealer that doesn't produce harmful fumes during application and removal. Water based sealers are easier to apply and remove and also require less drying time. One of the most popular product ranges available is Australian made Deepshield™ quality impregnating water based sealer's that prolong the life of your surfaces by taking full advantage of recent advancements in nano technology, providing unmatched long-term stain resistance and reliability.

It is important to ensure the correct water based sealer is applied to your bluestone tile which will also depend on whether they are indoors or outdoors as most sealer's will not last long outside due to being designed for internal use. If your bluestone is outdoors, it is important to use a water based sealer that is specifically designed for outdoor bluestone.

There are two types of impregnating clear sealer, water based sealer & solvent based. In the past solvent based sealers were more widely used as they used to absorb deeper into the bluestone and grout and would also last longer. Today however, thanks to new technological advancements, it is recommended only to use water based sealers, that last much longer and cause less potential damage to health and property.

Solvent based products are more difficult to apply and can create major problems when applied incorrectly as they are very hard to remove. Tile Cleaners Sydney® recommend our clients apply a long lasting water based sealer to their bluestone tiles and grout. Topical sealer's (glossy plastic coating over the top of the bluestone) are still used on bluestone, but these older style sealers can trap moisture in the stone and make the surface slippery when wet. When a topical sealer wears in higher traffic areas, the entire surface usually needs to be stripped and re-sealed.

It is very important to ensure that tiles achieve their cleanest possible condition prior to being sealed. This will protect the appearance of the tile, and importantly ensure that there won't be any dirt, stains or other debris caught under the layer of sealant.

To provide the best possible protection from oil and water-based stains; to maintain the look and slip resistance of your bluestone and to prevent damaging moisture from being trapped within the stone, it is recommended to seal your bluestone with a high quality, invisible, fully breathable impregnating sealer.

Enjoy your bluestone in its best possible condition!
