Cleaning Quarry Tile

I'm doing some restoration work on a turn of the century home and the porch has red quarry tile that the home owner wishes to clean up.I was just wondering the best way, can it be acid washed like brick or is there a better approach ,also should it be sealed afterward. thanks

Re: Cleaning Quarry Tile

Depending on why it needs to be cleaned, acid probably won't touch what ails the floor. How about a good old fashioned scrubbing?
