Terracotta, the Stone
From the Latin terra cotta, ‘baked earth’ it is unglazed clay. Quarry tiles and tessellated Victorian tiled floors are popular examples of terracotta.
Terracotta floor tile cleaning, restoration, sealing and maintenance
Terracotta tiles are traditional and authentic looking, possessing warmth, charm and character. They are used throughout Yorkshire in many period properties, but the attractive, characteristic glaze of terracotta tile can be soft and prone to scratching, becoming dull looking. To regain that beautiful, warm effect Floormaster can strip, clean, seal and re-finish your terracotta floor, to a matt or wet-look finish restoring it’s natural beauty. We can offer terracotta tile cleaning in North Yorkshire and surrounding areas
Terracotta Floor Polishing
Terracotta cannot be mechanically polished, but we can restore or add a high shine finish to your floor with our high-quality sealers.
