We Clean and Seal Saltillo
Saltillo tile is named from the region of Mexico that it was originally made. Saltillo tile is a type of Terra cotta tile that originates in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico. This tile varies in color, shape, and shading with hues of reds, oranges, and yellows. The tile is made by pressing clay from the region into a square frame or other desired shape. After the tile is pressed it is then fired in an oven where the unique colors start co show with greater or lesser degrees of contrast.
When Saltillo is installed it should be properly sealed first before grouting. This tile is highly porous, and soaks in liquids quite easily. There is no glaze on the tile surface and can quickly stain and discolored if not sealed and properly cleaned. It is a good idea to regularly have your Saltillo cleaned and sealed.
