Tile & Grout | Stellar Surfaces New Zealand

Grout is a cement based product which is very porous, and so absorbs soils, oils, grease & harbor mould and lichen growth which ultimately discolors the surface and presents hygiene issues. Our grout colour sealing service changes the porous grout surface to a non-porous one which means that water and soils cannot absorb or filter into the grout discoloring the appearance as it has become a sealed surface. Once treated cleaning becomes a much easier task.

Tiles are not a bullet proof and dirt resistant surfaces, even the tiles that come ‘sealed’ from the factory.

the reason for this, all tiles have pores similar to those found in concrete, leather or stone. these pores are microscopic airpockets or tunnels into the surface. Every form of soils, bacteria, grease and mould will lodge in these pores and will not completely come out with off the shelf cleaning products.

Stellar has found that some stains and engrained soils only come out with our heavy duty soil extraction process that is a part of our heavy duty deep clean, which is a combination of product and process. With the exception of permanent staining our system extracts all soils and discoloring and returns the surface to its best possible near new state. At this point we recommend we protective sea your tiles to prevent staining reoccurring in the same way.

One of the most common problems when wet is slippery tiles, people slip, trip and fall on tiles when theres rain, liquid or sometimes even the lightest dew.

This can happen even in the most unlikely of places.
