Services

 

 

We provide the following cleaning processes: -

 

 

Floor de-greasing

Floor scrubbing

Floor stripping

Floor buffing

Floor burnishing

Floor polishing

 

 

The cleaning process we use are dictated by the type of floor and its condition.

 

We have listed below all the types of floors we refurbish with a description of the floor and details on what cleaning processes may be used.

 

 

Slate floor

 

 

Slate A fine-grained metamorphic rock that easily splits into sheets. It’s composed of clay, quartz and shale.

 

Slate is usually found in the kitchen and bathrooms, slate is a very strong and durable and comes in a range of colours, finishes and textures.

 

We find that the slate tiles and grout lines get very dirty mainly due to incorrect cleaning processes, often seals wear and make the floor look very worn and tired.

 

Cleaning process

 

Generally we deep clean or strip the slate floor of existing seals, allow it to dry, apply a colour intensifier and then seal the floor.

 

This method does not give the floor a sheen, we can add an additional seal which will provide the satin sheen required and has the advantage of making it easier to clean the floor.

 

Depending on the type of slate and the finish the client requires determines to finish coats we apply.

 

 

Terracotta floor

 

 

Terrcotta floors are known for there rustic charms and warm tones, they have been around for many centuries and are formed of fired clay, they are known for there strength and durability but they are very porous and require sealing to stop dirt and stains entering the pours of the stone.

 

Colours and textures vary from sumptuous rich oranges, reds, browns to mellow honey tones

 

We find that the terracotta floors and grout lines have become dirty and the floor has lost its lustre and shine due to incorrect cleaning processes, often wax seals wear and make the floor look very worn and tired.

 

Cleaning process

 

The cleaning process we use depends on the condition of the floor, some floors will still have there wax coats intact and require a good deep clean. This usually involves deep cleaning the tiles and grout lines, allowing the floor to dry for a week before returning and applying new wax coats.

 

If the seals have been worn away then the floor will require a full strip of the existing wax coats and new wax coats applied, this is a more involved process than the above notably stripping the floor and applying one of the two systems below.

 

There are basically two systems (and lots of variations for both)

 

1. The traditional oil & wax treatment.


2. The modern, synthetic approach.

 

We prefer to use the modern method because it produces a better hard waring and also reduces the maintenance required using the old method.

 

 

York Stone

 

 

York stone is a variety of sandstone, specifically from quarries in Yorkshire and known for its hard wearing and durable qualities, York stone is a tight grained, carboniferous sedimentary rock.

 

The stone consists of quartz, mica, feldspar, clay and iron oxides. The colour of York stone depends on the minerals within its makeup and differs throughout the quarries from which it is mined.

 

We find that the York Stone tiles and grout lines get very dirty mainly due to incorrect cleaning processes, often seals wear and make the floor look very worn and tired.

 

Cleaning process

 

 

Generally we deep clean or strip the York Stone floor of existing seals, allow it to dry, apply a colour intensifier and then seal the floor.

 

This method does not give the floor a sheen, we can add an additional seal which will provide the satin sheen required and has the advantage of making it easier to clean the floor.

 

Depending on the type of the finish the client requires determines to finish coats we apply.

 

 

Sand stone

 

 

Sandstone is a classic sedimentary rock composed mainly of sand-sized minerals or rock grains.

 

Colours range from light beige to light brown, with some hints of green, orange, pink, black, white and can contain natural fossil imprints.

  

Cleaning process

 

 

Generally we deep clean or strip the Sandstone floor of existing seals, allow it to dry, apply a colour intensifier and then seal the floor.

 

This method does not give the floor a sheen, we can add an additional seal which will provide the satin sheen required and has the advantage of making it easier to clean and maintained the floor.

 

Depending on the type of the finish the client requires determines to finish coats we apply.

  

Flag Stone

 

 

Flagstone is a general name for any type of sedimentary rock which essentially splits into relatively even slabs or shapes.


In recent times the term "flagstone" has come to mean many different types of stone flooring or rather stone slab flooring. This includes non-natural "stone" floors such as concrete imitators and composite products

 

We find that the York Stone tiles and grout lines get very dirty mainly due to incorrect cleaning processes, often seals wear and make the floor look very worn and tired.

 

Cleaning process

 

 

Generally we deep clean or strip the York Stone floor of existing seals, allow it to dry, apply a colour intensifier and then seal the floor.

 

This method does not give the floor a sheen, we can add an additional seal which will provide the satin sheen required and has the advantage of making it easier to clean the floor.

 

Depending on the type of the finish the client requires determines to finish coats we apply.

  

 

Victorian and Edwardian Geometric and Encaustic tiles

 

 

Geometric and encaustic tiled floors started to appear in public buildings, churches and the more expensive Victorian villas from the 1860s, by the 1890s they had become an essential feature in the most ordinary Victorian terraced houses.

 

As well as adding prestige and colour to a Victorian hall, they were also remarkably practical and durable, surviving a 100 years of family wear and now with some restoration they can be good for another 100 years. 

 

 

We find that these floors become dirty and lose their lustre and shine due to incorrect cleaning processes, often wax seals wear and make the floor look very worn and tired.

 

 

Cleaning process

 

 

The cleaning process we use depends on the condition of the floor, some floors will still have an old wax present that will need removing. Then we deep clean the floor and allow it to dry for a week before applying an impregnating seal with a colour intensifier to protect and bring out the colours.

 

These tiles can be matt or glazed with different porosity's and some old tiles can receive a smooth finish from years of wear. 

 

 

Depending on the type of tiles you have will dictate the level of finish we can achieve from a matte finish to a high gloss finish or a satin sheen for in between.

 

We can add a polish coat to give it a high gloss finish but don't always recommend this as the polish can wear down after a year or so and will require further maintenance to keep it looking polished.

 

Never apply an emulsion polish to this type of floor as it will not protect the floor and will be very difficult and costly to remove if at all.

 

 

Quarry tile floor cleaning

 

 
Traditional quarry tiles were unglazed and either red or gray in color. However, modern tiles come in a variety of tints and finishes. Industrial quarry tiles are available with abrasive frit embedded in the surface to provide a non-slip finish in wet areas such as commercial kitchens and laboratories.
 
Quarry tiles are extensively used for floors where a very durable material is required.

 

Most of the time these floors are just very dirty and need a good deep clean and a new seal, some times more work is required when restoring the floor in the form or repairs to the tiles and removing cement and glues etc. after removing a carpet or vinyl floor that has hidden the floor. 

 

We find that the quarry tiles and grout lines become dirty, greasy and can suffer from efflorescence and lime scale from water.

 

 

Cleaning process

 

 

Generally we deep clean these tiles with various stone cleaners or degreaser, what we use really depends on where the stone is being used and for what purpose, a gym shower room will require a both different cleaning process and chemicals to a restaurant.  

 

Some quarry tiles can receive a impregnating seal to protect the stone, you can also apply a quarry tile polish, again this all depends on the type of tile, its location and use. 

 

 

Porcelain / Ceramic floor tile cleaning 

 

 

Porcelain tiles can be either glazed or un-glazed and come in a variety of colours textures and finishes. Porcelain tiles have low permeability and elasticity; considerable strength, hardness

and a high resistance to chemical attack and thermal shock.

 

The main problems we see with porcelain floors is dirt and grease marks together with dirty grout lines and this is because.

 

 

Cleaning process

 

 

Generally we deep clean both the floor and grout lines with a porcelain floor cleaner or a degreaser depending on where the floor is located.
