Tile cleaning and Stone floor cleaning
As well as providing a professional carpet and upholstery cleaning service I am also provide a tile cleaning, sealing and restoration service. This includes amtico/karndean cleaning, tile cleaning, natural stone floor cleaning and travertine, limestone and marble polishing.
Many homes and commercial premises have tile and amtico/karndean flooring. All floors lose their original lustre over a period of time. The years of foot traffic and debris will cause the surface to wear and deteriorate and look dirty and scuffed which will fade what should be the centre piece of your room.
Mopping your floor everyday keeps the surface clean and hygienic. But when mopping alone can't get to deep down dirt and no matter how hard you mop or scrub, and don’t seem to get a good result like you used too, then its time to get in a professional.

In addition to tile cleaning, your floor may require a certain amount of restoration work in order to restore it to its original beauty. Stone floors such as marble, travertine and limestone may need to be diamond polished in order to bring them back to their original condition. Scratches, grit and ingrained dirt can all change the appearance of stone floors over time. My stone floor polishing process involves using diamond polishing pads to gradually grind the surface of the marble tile removing scratches and prepare it for polishing. This process will restore your marble tiles to their original shine, ready for sealing.
I can then discuss sealing your floor if you wish to make it easier to clean and to keep that new look for longer. I use impregnating sealers which soak into the stone forming an invisible barrier. All stone is porous and will absorb dirt or spillages unless correct protection is applied in the form of a specialist impregnating floor sealant. I have a selection of sealants available from satin to colour enhancing protection.
Tile cleaning care tips:
- Sweep or vacuum floors to remove any debris and grit before using any cleaning products. Damp mop your tile floor at least once each week.
- After cleaning, rinse the entire area with clean water to remove any cleaning solution residue to prevent rapid resoiling.
- Use a sealer on grout joints shortly after installation.
