What are the benefits of sealing?
When a seal is appropriate, it brings a host of potential benefits:
If I have a seal, do I not need to worry about daily cleaning?
Unfortunately, not! Even sealed floors will collect contamination over time, so it’s best to use an effective daily cleaning regime to prevent any build-up rather than having to rely on deep cleaning more frequently.
We can help with a periodic Planned Preventative Maintenance package to ensure that your daily cleaning really does only need to achieve the bare minimum.
When might sealing be useful?
There are various scenarios when we may recommend a seal to you, including:
- On certain new floors types (often sealing is part of the specification)
- In very heavily trafficked areas where daily cleaning doesn’t achieve the required results
- On certain heavily textured floor types
- For natural stone floors (e.g. marble, granite, travertine) whereas porcelain and ceramic tiles are much less likely to require sealing
What types of seal finishes are there?
We almost exclusively tend to use impregnating sealers on tiles and stone. These sit within the surface and create a breathable protective layer without a huge, if any, change in the appearance of the floor.
We can use seals with varying degrees of sheen on them, as well as colour enhancing seals which will typically darken and bring back the lustre of floors.
Does sealing affect slip safety?
Care should be taken if a non-specialist seeks to seal a floor because it may be that their work will make your floor more slippery when wet. Traditional polish seals produce a smooth, topical surface over the top of the inherent floor.
How long does the benefit of a seal last?
Most sealants that we use will last for several years if maintained correctly. We recommend a Planned Preventative Maintenance plan to assist with this.
How much does floor sealing cost?
We have created an online tool for you to generate an estimated cost for your floor(s). Simply answer a few questions and this will give you a price range to consider.
