Saltillo & Brick Paver Cleaning and Restoration Services
The Re-Nu method for cleaning Saltillo will vary depending on the current condition of the tile and how well it has been maintained. We have the knowledge to use the correct abrasives to clean the Saltillo but not damage the clay. These are general methods and results may vary.
New Saltillo / Brick Paver : A very light custom abrasive process is used. Slurry removal is through a tile and grout cleaning machine for a very thorough cleaning step.
Older Saltillo / Brick Paver : previously sealed with a penetrating sealer only: We will lightly scrub and the surface of the tile safely using appropriate grit strength. The cleaning solution is very aggressive and will remove as much discoloring and staining as possible. Truck-mounted equipment will wash away all the slurries generated during the abrasive process.
Older Saltillo / Brick Paver : previously sealed with a topcoat sealer: The abrasives used will depend on the condition of the existing coating, whether it is intact or breaking down exposing the clay or showing deterioration of the clay. In some cases, the coating may need to be stripped off as best as possible and then recoated. If the clay has eroded in areas, the discoloring can generally be improved after a good clean and recoat, but not erased.
