150 year old floor with no damp membrane

Asked by Caroline Bradley from Huntingdon: I have a tiled floor which is circa 150 years old, quarry tiles or possibly terracotta, 9 inches square. I have got them reasonably clean but there is no damp membrane below them so they need to breathe. How can I protect them?

TileProf says: Suggest you install a dehumdifier for a few days and then apply 7 or 8 coats of Tile Doctor Seal and Go with a Paint Pad on a Paint Pole and use a Paint tray, you can do big areas this way, Seal and Go is a Breathable sealer so will work where thier is no Damp Proofing present provided the Tiles where dry to start with, so Seal on a dry day incase the Water tables rise when it starts to rain. http://www.tiledoctor.co.uk/TD-Seal-Go.html Russell Taylor Tile Doctor Ltd
