These tiles portray an example of a Victorian Tiled floor; this era was incredible for its elegant design and style. Geometric shapes create a unique tiled floor that creates a beautiful statement for any home.

This stone cleaning job took place in Ormskirk and we deep cleaned and restored the geometric Victorian tiles and mosaic tiled floor. It is an excellent example of the eclectic design that has remained popular through the years.

It is typical for such tiles to be installed in entrance and hallways; homeowners wanted to showcase such a feature to visitors. It is easy to say that these decorative tiles really do look prestigious.

Tiled floors such as these are remarkably practical. An original Victorian floor will have likely have been laid over 100 years ago and if looked after carefully can last a lifetime more.

It is more than likely that your Victorian floor tiles will be unglazed; the traditional method of cleaning employed the use of wax or oil to help with resistance against water spillages. It was unknown that such cleaning processes could be working to trap dirt, to increase discolouration and to make the tiles slightly slippery in some conditions.

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. The before and after images showcase just how impressive these results can be.

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.
