Alot of houses have Quarry Tile as it is a very common tile.

A glazed or unglazed tile made by the extrusion process from natural clay or shale. This tile is most common in the dark red shades; however, shades of brown and gray are also available. Same hard fired material and color all through the body. Because quarry tile is fire-hardened and quite hard, it can be cleaned at pressures up to 1,450 PSI if the grout is in good condition.

Quarry Tiles are a good choice for both indoors and outdoors.

What is Quarry?

Quarry tile is made of clay and usually has a rougher finish than most pressed out ceramic tiles. You can usually spot a quarry tile from the small roller grooves on the back of the tiles where they were extruded out of the machine (think giant pasta machine). Quarry tile is extremely durable and is a great choice for most rooms in your home, especially high traffic areas. When quarry tile is sealed, the tiles become water resistant which makes them a great choice for bathrooms and kitchens too.

Quarry tiles are relatively inexpensive, which makes them great for those on a budget. The durability, combined with the budget savings of quarry tiles, makes them an ideal choice for many homes all over the world. They have become more popular over the last few years as many people want a beautiful floor that is also durable and easy to take care of.

A classic hard wearing tile often utilised in high traffic areas such as reception areas and also often used for outdoor patio areas and porches. Although hard wearing Quarry tiles are often neglected and hidden under years of grime, however all is not lost they can be restored.

  • Clean your quarry tile thoroughly with a canister vacuum cleaner. Do not use a vacuum with a beater bar as this may drag grit across the tiles, causing scratches to the sealer or wax.
  • Mop your floor with a cleanser. Consider using an enzyme-based, antibacterial cleanser such as EnziBrite or AquaMix, particularly if your quarry tile is in the kitchen as these types of cleansers cut grease and eliminate odors.
  • Rinse your mopped floor to remove cleanser residue. It is often a good idea to use soft or distilled water if your tap water has high mineral content since you don't want to leave deposits on your tiles.
  • Wipe your floor dry with towels. This is a useful step to determine if your tile has haze or if it is becoming discolored. (Wax can become yellowed as it ages.)
  • If your tile floor looks like it has a film on it, add white vinegar to clear water and re-mop your floor. This should remove any haze. Dry the tile again.

Sealing Quarry Tiles

Because quarry tile is unglazed, it needs to be maintained with sealers. We recommend the use of least three coats. Apply an acrylic floor finish (at least two coats). Use a lamb's wool pad and a floor-polishing machine to apply a paste wax. Buff the floor once the wax dries. Periodically strip the wax off, clean the floor thoroughly and reapply the finishes. Stripping machines can be rented for this process. Dirt can be trapped under wax so be sure the entire floor is very clean before waxing. Use a synthetic scouring pad for stubborn spots and use a heavy-duty cleansing agent if you need to use a stronger product on stains.

Quarry tile is vulnerable to staining and, like brick, it can be broken if heavy objects are dropped on it. Tile that has been neglected for a long time may require a professional cleaner to return the tile to its best appearance. Some cleansers are better for indoor applications, so read your labels carefully.
