Victorian tile cleaning in Newcastle.

Victorian tile deep cleaning in Newcastle Upon Tyne. These original geometric Victorian tiles had been covered with carpet on top of lino for many years, which protected the floor from daily wear and tear.

This was a house built in the late 1800s and the customer wanted to have the tiles professionally cleaned and sealed. Our Victorian Tile Restorer went to work by using a gentle cleaning solution that removes years of dirt and other buildup without harming your tiles.

The floor is left to dry for a short time before being coated with a high quality sealer that helps to keep the colour and original look. After this, the floor will be much easier to clean and it will last for 10 years without showing any signs of water, dirt or grease stains. You'll also still have an immaculate looking floor all year round.

History of Victorian Tiles

Encaustic and geometric tiles have been used in both commercial and residential properties since the late 1800s. They were first used in public buildings like the Victoria and Albert Museum, churches, and private Victorian terraced houses. As they became popular, they were laid predominantly in hallways of private Victorian terraced houses to create an impressive first impression for visitors. These tiles are both beautiful and durable, which is why many of them can still be seen today.

The tiles of the 1940s and 1950s have been neglected for a long time, with many being covered or replaced. The lack of care has resulted in the tiles becoming chipped and worn from traffic over the years. You'll find other signs of neglect as well, including cement screed that's been laid to level carpet or glue to adhere different floor coverings; these coatings can't hold up to moisture, so they should also be removed. Other causes of damage include carpets secured by gripper rods that were nailed through the existing tiles! Of course, you're going to see changes to plumbing and electrical work that will leave raised patches on some areas of your floors and cause them to need replacement.

Sometimes, the substrate beneath a floor can shift or crack and cause significant structural problems. A perfect example of this is a tilt happening when timbers supporting the brickwork move which creates a dish effect in the floor tiles. The substrate might be made up of rubble and lime or suspended timber floors and lime mortar screed. Both types of substrate tend to deteriorate.
