This almost archaic method meant that often a lot of dirt was therefore absorbed deep into the individual tiles. This forms part of the reason as to why restoring tiled floors such as these is so rewarding; intensive cleaning, careful restoration and sealing worked to provide an incredible transformation.

Our advice to this client was that routine cleaning should involve as little liquid as possible to avoid damage and loosening of the individual tiles. We also provided them with detailed information as to the best products to use to get the most out of their stone flooring.
