Ceramic & Porcelain Tile

Ceramic and porcelain tiles are hard, non-porous surfaces that require very little maintenance. Ceramic and porcelain tiles do not need to be sealed. Regular vacuuming and mopping will keep your tile clean and looking new.

Do you have dirty, dingy, old grout that keeps your tile surfaces from looking their best? Your grout will look brand new again when you call GSM. For more information, see our grout cleaning, sealing & restoration services.

Does your tile have a dingy, filmy or streaky appearance? This is most likely grout haze, which is residue left on the tile from the grouting process. Call GSM—we can remove the grout haze. (See Grout Cleaning Sealing and Restoration below)

Do you have chipped tiles? A chipped tile is like a chipped dinner plate where the polished surface is gone, leaving an uneven rough spot that is difficult to repair. GSM offers solutions for small chips, though not all chips can be repaired.

Saltillo Tiles & Mexican Pavers

Made from clay these are a very porous, soft tile prone to staining and damage from everyday wear and tear. Regular maintenance and using the right sealing products and methods offers protection. Neglect and using the wrong sealing products and methods can leave pavers permanently damaged.

If you’re wondering if your pavers need sealing, look at them when they are wet. If you see dark spots that means the clay is exposed and needs to be sealed. GSM uses the right sealing products and methods to provide maximum protection against staining.

Can they be restored? Being extremely porous over time they will have permanent damage so pavers can be renewed but not completely restored. Renewed pavers will look much, much better, usually at least 75% better. Renewing pavers requires expertise. GSM provides the right methods and products to renew your Saltillo Tiles/Mexican Pavers.
