Saltillo Tile Exterior Patios Gallery
Our safe and effective cleaning & sealing service for saltillo won’t over-sand the clay causing damage to the surface. Proper knowledge how to treat saltillo is important due to its soft and porous nature. Sealing is especially important as the types of sealer used vary from inside to outside surfaces.
Oil stains appear as dark spots and when oil sealed help to camouflage. When the tile started to become a common floor covering, shiny topcoat sealers were applied to give the tiles a shiny appearance as well as being sealed. Generally, a clear coating will not darken the tiles. Saltillo tile is a very delicate floor covering. Even during installation, it can be permanently discolored, losing it ability to be restored.
Restorability is the ability to bring the floor back to a condition at a certain point in time. Loss of restorability is any permanent damage that can not be repaired.
