Stone Polishing Warrington

By On June 24, 2014 No Comments

Marble is a metamorphic rock and is by far one of the most recognisable and most popular natural stone. It is striking in its appearance and, once fitted, will look incredible, be durable and will last a lifetime if maintained correctly.

We were invited to provide our comprehensive stone restoration process for these marble tiles in Warrington. The owners of the house were completely renovating the entire property and wanted us to fully clean and polish their marble flooring after the grouting application had left the tiles covered in grout residue.

The stone floor was completely cleaned and then we completed diamond resurfacing to the entire tiled floor. This process is completed by using a graduated range of abrasive pads, slowly grinding down the surface of the tile. This stone polishing process can be used to remove scratches, scuffs and some staining.

Finer and finer grades of abrasive pads were then used to hone the surface to create an incredibly smooth finish. This process repeated delivers a high-gloss shine as showcased in the images. Our clients had specifically requested that they wanted a reflective finish. We discussed the likely additional maintenance that is required for high-shine stone finishes so that they were left well-equipped.

Again, the marble tiles were then fully sealed to protect them further from daily wear and tear. Our clients commented that they did not think the glossy shine we achieved would be possible. They felt that it enhanced the natural beauty of their marble and commented that it set a high standard to which the remaining restoration work had to compliment.

Although the images show an instant result; hard work was put in to achieve this! After the tiles were thoroughly cleaned we began using a course-grit sanding paper, working through to a fine-grit paper to achieve the polished look.

The floor tiles were fully sealed to make sure that they were equipped to deal with every day wear and tear and any possible liquid spillages. Stone floor sealing is so important for any natural stone; it can both help your tiles look cleaner for longer and it will work to repel etching, water marks or staining that can easily be caused by any liquid touching the tile.

Cleaning Grout Birkenhead

By On April 23, 2014 No Comments

Grout is a porous material; it is often found that dirt ingrains deeply into the grout lines of any stone flooring. This is unsightly and is often caused by dirt being pushed and collected into the lines of grout. There are a vast amount of grout cleaning products available that are more than likely to offer substandard results.

We were invited to restore these marble tiles in Birkenhead. The home owner was getting increasingly frustrated with the dull appearance of the stone tiles and for the increasingly dirty grout between the tiles. They had tried so many products that had never been able to offer the gleaming results that can be achieved with our professional restoration service.

We have industrial strength, eco-friendly products and solutions that ensure that the existing grout is not damaged. Many cleaning products are incredibly acidic and a lot should not be used with natural stone tiles such as marble, limestone or travertine.

So our in-depth understanding of the best products available is imperative to the overall success of our work. Our trade machinery and tools on this job allowed us the confidence that we can achieve unrivalled results for each and every client we work for.

We have built up a range of experience in dealing with staining and dirt build-up. Different grout colours and types provide us with individual challenges the light colouration of the grout on this job meant that we were required to pool our knowledge to achieve the best-possible results.

We left our client with detail of how best to approach routine cleaning. Dirt particles and moisture are a winning formula for quickly soiled grout. This marble floor was left both hygienically clean and strikingly attractive.

Marble Polishing Rufford

Having an expanse of marble tiles in your home is a luxury and looks incredibly spectacular as seen in the below images. They really are impressive and marble flooring is likely to rate highly if choosing to lay stone flooring in your home or business.

We were asked to inspect this marble floor in Rufford; the owner of the house had been in the house for one year and was disappointed that the floor appeared to be looking worse by the week.

We spent time with the customer discussing their regular cleaning routine and identified that the owner had been maintaining the floor with a steam mop and unsuitable cleaning products.

This meant that there was a gradual deterioration of the finish on the marble floor tiles and if not restored appropriately; this decline would likely continue.

After our initial consultation we returned to complete our comprehensive marble restoration process. It was discussed that the owner wanted a high-gloss finish to their tiles; the floor was therefore ground, polished and sealed with a colour enhancing impregnator.

Marble Restoration Clitheroe

By On November 20, 2013 No Comments

Marble is arguably one of the most recognisable and well-known stone tile; it really enhances any room where it is laid. Years of use and wear had left this marble flooring looking dull which was not the statement that our clients wanted to make to people visiting their home.

How was this marble restoration completed?

Marble Grinding:

This process stripped back the existing surface of the marble tiles. It removed any remaining coatings, delamination and other issues that had occurred over time. This technique employed the use of our state-of-the-art machinery.

Marble Polishing:

This process offered further grinding with diamond grinders that provided a smooth and reflective finish. The level to which this is completed depends on the finish that our individual clients would like to achieve. We were asked to provide a high-shine for this job.

Marble Sealing:

Sealing marble will make sure that the marble restoration results are long-lasting. It will give the stone a natural resilience against liquid spills. In this case we sealed the stone with a colour enhancing impregnator.

Below is a selection of the before and after images from this marble cleaning project; the results really do speak for themselves and we felt as though these images show the versatility of marble.

Marble tiles can transform any room instantly, looking sophisticated, and are usually one of the most popular floor tile choice available. Marble floor tiles are durable, versatile and easily cleaned and maintained. A truly timeless tile choice!

We received a call from a customer who had just had their marble tiles laid in Blackburn; what should have looked like polished tiles were looking dull due to excess grout residue.

Specialist cutting powders were used to eliminate this excess and then marble polishing techniques were used to bring out the true quality of the tile. The client was so pleased to have the polished finish they wanted and the transformation was exceptional.
