Terracotta tile floor

I am an Italian conservator specialized in ceramic and glass
conservation. Now I am starting a conservation project of an ancient
cotto floor (in Italy, "cotto floor" is a floor made of terracotta
tiles, not glazed).

This is the floor of the Galleria Spada in Palazzo Capodiferro in
Rome. The age of the cotto floor is the 17th century. It is covered
from a thick and oxidized wax layer. I think that laser cleaning
could be used. What do you think? Have you carried out similar
