Stone Floor Cleaning & Restoration

Stone Floor Cleaning, Sealing and Restoration

A stone floor can make all the difference to a home, transforming your home into something that bit more special! Now, dependent on your stone selection (see below) natural stone floors, over time, suffer from ingrained dirt and liquid (acidic) spills. At Acleanerplace Cleaning Services (ACS) we provide a stone cleaning and restoration service that will bring ‘new life’ to anyone’s stone floor!

Your stone floor will (may) have had an impregnating or a topical seal applied at the time of installation. The sealant is essentially a barrier against this daily wear and tear and as such will gradually wear down (2-3 years).

The wearing down of the sealant may leave all-natural floor tiles looking dull, and also more susceptible to staining; particularly the grout lines. It is therefore vital to ensure the floor’s sealer is topped up. By contacting ACS we can offer you a stone cleaning restoration (sealing ) service for any of the types of natural stone floors listed below:

In many cases, where the stone is porous, or the sealant has completely worn away, you’ll find there is damage from water and another liquid ingress. The acidity level, commonly found in some food and drinks, can leave long-lasting stains (etching) on certain types of stone, eg. marble, granite, and porcelain.

Our Stone Cleaning  And Restoration Process:

Initial Visit

We start with an initial inspection and quotation. We visit your home or premises at a convenient time in order to inspect your floors, determine your requirements and expectations. During this visit provide a demonstration (test) patch which assists us to determine what process and materials are needed to restore the floor correctly.  The area is measured and an initial estimate is given, followed by a full written quotation. 

On The Day-Step1

Having agreed on a start day and time we arrive and begin our floor preparations: masking up oof areas not to be cleaned, vacuuming. We then apply our specialist products to the stone, tiles, and grout lines to dwell and soften the soiling. We then use our equipment to agitate the product and scrub the stone floor, getting into all the crevices. This is followed by the wet vacuuming (extraction) of all the dirty soils (slurry) from the floor.  The floor is then rinsed to make sure all cleaning products and dirt are removed, leaving the floor perfectly clean.

On The Day-Step 2

To assist the drying process we use multiple air movers (fans) that leave the floors to dry naturally (Note: some floors, e.g. Victorian Milton may require between overnight – 2-5 days to dry out).

On The Day-Step 3

Dependent on the required drying time of the stone (each stone type has a different drying requirement -See Step 3) and then only after taking a moisture reading to determine that the stone is at the correct level of ‘dryness’ will we then seal it using the (agreed) sealer – from impregnating sealers – which will not affect the look of the tile or stone – to matt, satin, or gloss finishes.

On The Day-Step 4

We then leave the stone floor to dry and cure with the use of our air movers (fans) if required.

Our Maintenance Offer

ACS can offer our customer’s a maintenance regime if required: An initial clean and seal;  advice on how to maintain your floor and advice on any problems. Bi-annual cleans and seals or just an annual clean and ‘top-up’ of the seal.  We are only too pleased to discuss the above options that will keep your stone floor in pristine condition.
