I can't believe that you have suggested that.
The tiles are history and beautiful.

Joan,,,how do you think the victorians cared for them,,,well the housemaids,,,scrubbed,, with hot water,&soda..&of course a good sweep......,no mild detergents around then,,and porous tiles are never ever polished,,,,
once they have had the grim took off,,just a warm mop over with washing up liquid will keep them clean,,,

My brother uses a electric scrubbinhing brush on his hall &porch Vic tiles,,,,,,!!

Think I would leave the cleaning until after the plasterer has been the years of dirt may help protect them from the mess plasterers make its unbelievable!!

Hope you protect the porch wall tiles too then so they don't get damaged with all the work going on and then young people lolling about when they come visiting etc. Would be such a shame for them to be damaged.
