Specialists Natural Stone & Hard Floor Cleaning Process
Clean & Seal Option Only – For all types of floors.
Please note: The following step by step method is our standard process for the clean and seal option. If you require a gloss or high polished finish, our diamond polishing service would be a great option.
Step 1: First off, we remove all loose debris from the surface of your floor.
Step 2: After a thorough detailed inspection of your floor, we will choose a cleaning technique and pick out the right deep -nourishing formula that is both thorough and sensitive to the precise needs of your floor.
Step 3: At this point, we will begin to deep clean the tiles and grout lines to remove dirt, chemical residues and grease build-up using our robust floor machine. And of course, we patiently take our time at this stage, ensuring an optimum clean.
Step 4: Last but one, we then remove all the loosened dirt and grime using a wet vacuum. Finally, we rinse the floor using our high pressured machine that removes any residues left after cleaning.
Step 5: When we return the next morning, the floor will be fully dry and looking beautiful. It’s only at that point we can apply an impregnating sealant to protect the floor’s surface.
Clean, Polish & Seal Option – Natural Stone (excluding slate)
Please note: This option is for the majority of natural stone tiles only. Unfortunately, you cannot polish porcelain, ceramic or slate tiles, therefore refer to the clean and seal option.
Same as above, we carry out Step 1-5.
Step 6: Now, our most favourite part, we will start polishing the marble using our hybrid pads.
What are Hybrid pads?
Hybrid Pads are attached to the bottom of our polishing machine. These pads contain thousands of microscopic diamonds and resins which ever so lightly remove a tiny layer off the surface on the stone.
Our pads range from coarse (to remove deep scratches) to fine grit (for a mirror finish).
To begin with, we start with a lower grade grit pad and work our way up through each pad stage by stage until we reach your desired finish.
Step 7: Finally, we rinse the floor to ensure the floor is clear. Once that’s done, we need to leave the floor to dry completely overnight.
Step 8: Once dry and gleaming, we will apply an impregnating sealant to protect your floors future.
Colour enhancing sealant can be applied (if desired) to bring out the colours.
Satin wax dressing can be applied to Victorian tiles to give them a slight sheen – See photos opposite.
