19th Century Tudor Gothic Mansion Flagstone Floor

What do you get when you combine a 19th Century Tudor Gothic Mansion Flagstone floor, top equipment, Kevin and myself?

A damn good Flagstone floor, that’s what!

I’ll be totally honest with you…

…Flagstone floors are my least favourite stone to work with.

There, I said it!

But anyway, that’s another story.

Here’s what we did at Margam Park Castle.

Firstly, we had to determine what brush head would work best to clean the stone.

Flagstone has a very textured surface so A LOT of dirt can get trapped in all those nooks and crannies.

So our best bet was to opt for a Carbide tipped brush on our Klindex machine, which will not only get into all those fissures but will slightly score the surface as well.

Meaning…

It will take a wee bit off the surface of the stone, revealing a new surface.

After a cuppa tea and 2 or 3 or 4??… Ok, a pack of biscuits later, the restoration was complete.

We then needed to leave it dry overnight before applying the sealer.

Next morning, we applied the water-based sealer to ensure that this 19th Century floor would be protected for years to come.

And that’s pretty much it.

Don’t forget to check out our other completed floor projects.

Last week, we achieved spectacular results from a 👉limestone floor we did.

Buh Bye!
