Saltillo tiles are handcrafted ceramic tiles produced from clay. New Saltillo tiles that have not been sealed or maintained correctly are porous and prone to wear and discoloration.




How long will my saltillo sealer last?


A common question that people ask is how long will a saltillo sealer last? The answer to this question all depends on how the saltillo sealer has been installed, maintained and cleaned. These three factors will determine the lifespan of your saltillo tile. If the tiles have been properly sealed, they can last as long as decades without any major issues. However, if there are cracks in the tile from improper installation or from wear and tear over time, then they may not be as durable. This will impact their lifespan and the number of years that it lasts before needing replacement.




Is it possible to steam clean Saltillo tile?


If you're considering steam cleaning your Saltillo tiles, DON'T. Because these porous clay tiles are porous, water is their worst enemy, and steam cleaning them will do nothing except damage the tile and the sealant. After a few months, the sealant on your Saltillo tiles may get cloudy, dull, or even flake off.
