Victorian tiles

A wonderful Victorian tiled hallway full of beautiful encaustic tiles, great colors and an interesting border design. Unfortunately the floor was covered with a very old varnish applied over unclean tiles. Varnish had tarnished over time and in turn obscured the floors natural colors and prevented the thorough cleaning of the floor. Victorian tiles are a very hard wearing and tough tile, but like most tile and stone floors will greatly benefit from sealing. This ensures that the rich colors of the tiles stand the test of time and allows for quicker and more successful maintenance cleaning How to Clean Victoriantiles You have a beautiful tiled Victorian floor in your hallway, but how do you keep it looking fresh? A Victorian tiled floor looks great but, to keep it intact, it needs lots of care and attention. Most period hallway tiling designs combine plain tiles and encaustic tiles (with different colored clays inlaid to create a design) which tend to get ingrained with dirt. Sweep or vacuum your Victorian tile floors often. Dirt collecting carpet mats should be placed in frequently used entrances and shacked out weekly. Floors will only need an occasional mop over every 2 weeks. Use floor maintenance cleaner in your washing water, or just plain water. We do not recommend the use of floor waxes as they can be difficult to remove from ceramic tile floors. As long as your floor is properly sealed and maintained, you should find no need for these products.
