Flooring and Carpeting/satille mexican tile


what is the origonal sealer used on the tile and is it oil or water base. thank you.

I will need a lot more information in order to answer your questions.  

Do you have an empty or partial container of sealer?  Can you contact a previous owner or renter of the property?

When dealing with an unknown sealer, and it needs recoating, best to use waterbornes as they are the least likely to create a problem with a previous sealer.

I can answer questions concerning the stripping and sealing of various tile, brick, and stone flooring with an emphasis on Mexican Tile. I cannot help in regards to installation issues, such as what sort of tile to use; how to install or remove tiles, etc.
