Tile and Stone Maintenance

Happy New Year to one and All from the Tile and Stone Blog!

Well 2009 was a busy but odd year to say the least, a lot of things happened in the world of tile and stone with many suppliers and retailers really feeling the pinch.

As we go into 2010 let’s hope it will be a better year for everyone. I am sure there will still be some belt tightening for some time to come so more of us may be thinking of how best to restore , clean-up or care for existing tile and stone installations rather than buying new.

For my part I am looking forward to spending more time on this blog than I managed last year, hopefully providing some little help and useful information.

I hope to make a start really soon, but for now, all the best for 2010

  1. Help! Recently we had a front step installed with quarry stone. Loved it until the sealer was applied and now I want to remove the sealer. Can this be done? If so, how?

    Hi Nancy,

    OK, Not entirely sure what you mean by the term ‘quarry stone’ over here in the UK that could mean anything, but I am guessing that it is something like a sandstone or some textured material. Also, you don’t say what type of sealer was applied. If it is a regular (non colour enhancing) impregnating sealer then the first thing I would do is contact the technical department of the sealer company they are the most likely to be able to offer a suitable stripper and advise you on how to go about it. If it is a very coarse, open textured-sandstone, then you may not be able to 100% remove it, but you may get enough of it off to restore the look you are after.

    Hope this helps

    Ian
