My name is Will Arnzen owner operator and a professional licensed tile contractor for Superior Mexican Saltillo Refinishing Cleaning Sealing & Restoration servicing San Diego areas. Our mission is to give the customer a beautiful floor which will look great many years after it is installed. When installing the Saltillo pavers for flooring patios steps & kitchens we make sure to properly seal the tiles 5-6 times for maximum protection. And then every 3-4 years it is a good idea to have a maintenance done on the tiles involving deep cleaning the tiles and grout and resealing the tiles. If it has been a while since any maintenance work has been done then you need a complete restoration done where we strip off and remove the existing sealer, then we deep clean the tiles and grout, and apply 5-6 coats of sealer. All other companies will just put on 1 or 2 coats of sealer. We specialize working with Saltillo tiles and I am an actual licensed tile contractor and NOT simply a steam cleaning company or janitor service. We also repair grout, fill in holes in the tiles, remove and replace cracked broken and chipped tiles.

BEFORE Picture of Lincoln & Tecate Pavers for a staircase & pool deck surround which were sealed with something by another company that turned black and started to peel away from the tiles so we restored the Saltillo tile steps and brick wall by stripping cleaning & resealing the tiles. For outdoor applications I like to use penetrating sealers instead of glossy topical sealers because after a short time the glossy sealers turn a milky white which mutes the colors of the tiles and the sealer begins to peel away from the pavers.

BEFORE picture of dirty kitchen floor with stains from oils and dirt and there were some small holes in the tiles caused when the lime which helps to bond the clay of the terra cotta tiles isn’t sifted well enough leaving some small balls which if they settle to the top of the surface will usually be worn off by foot traffic and will leave a small hole which we fill in with grout before sealing.

BEFORE a complete refinishing of an octagonal Mexican Paver floor in San Diego. We stripped off the existing sealer. In the next picture below you can see how much dirt and oils can get caught in the sealer over the years. And people think they clean the tiles before resealing but usually they are just sealing in more dirt and it gets to the point when a professional restoration is needed for the pavers.
While stripping off the existing finish for the tile floor and you can see all of the years of dirt and stains next to the brighter stripped tiles. People tell me that they scrub and scrub and the tiles are still dirty. The problem is with the finish and not the actual tiles so they should look great after resurfacing them.
