Old tiles-need cleaning!

Asked by Natalie from Coventry: We have original tiles from 1935 in our hallway-nit sure exactly what they are made of, they are mainly terracotta in colour with a design around the edge of White brown & yellow small tiles. It has been covered by carpet for years & has some glue from the carpet gripper on & some old paint stains. We want to restore it ourselves to save money but not sure what to use?

TileProf says: Hi There, Sounds like your Tiiles are Late Victorian Tiles rather than Terra-cotta, the only time I have seen these type of Tiles in an old house is in an Arts and Craft house which even fro them are quite rare.
