By Mark On January 29, 2018 No Comments

While natural stone floors and tiled floors age, they start to get dirty through use and wear. This process can happen over many months or years. However, it is likely that dirty grout lines will grab your attention prior to noticing the deterioration of your stone floors.

When thinking about it logically; cleaning the surface of your tiles can seem straightforward. However, all of the dirt that lands of your tiled surfaces can be pushed into the grout lines when routine cleaning is taking place. This has a huge impact on the appearance of your grout lines.

A major factor is that grout is a porous material. The following infographic has been put together in order to summarise some of our top tips for cleaning grout. Understanding these important elements will equip you with the ability to approach grout cleaning confidently.

Don’t forget; dirt and particles build up on your stone floors. It is a vital element of the cleaning process to remove as many dry particles as possible prior to any product or liquid touching the surface.

If this process is not completed, then the dirt can be dragged into the sunken grout lines and will cause staining to the material. This staining is incredibly challenging to fix or remove. It is then sometimes the case that individuals take drastic measures in order to improve the appearance of the grout.

These may include using bleach or products that are not matched to grout. These can cause irreversible damage, leaving you with a bigger problem than when you started. There are products and techniques that will offer exceptional results for your dirty grout.

By Mark On December 15, 2017 No Comments

The process of stone floor restoration is fascinating. There is no other way to put it and it may sound like an exaggeration. However, each element of the process can be tailored to specifically match the stone type that you are restoring. Different products can be used, and this is where specialist knowledge can make the difference between good finishes and great.

Polished Stone Tiles LeedsWe often talk about stone finishes and how they can vary from honed to high-sheen polish. During the process of your survey we will always discuss these options, if appropriate. Each may have benefits and drawbacks, but it is likely that you will have a preference once you are equipped with this information.

For our clients that select a polished stone, the process up to that point is exactly the same. However, finer and finer grades of pads are used to achieve the high-shine appearance that you can see in this image. Again, there are grades of polish and it is important that your exact requirements are met.

Why do some clients choose polished tiles?

  • Some of our clients like the statement that they provide. A high-shine tile looks incredible and when cleaned can really transform a space.
  • Generally, maintenance is straightforward and once familiar with the process, becomes routine.
  • Polished tiles offer a hygienic alternative. When polished floor tiles are appropriately sealed with the highest-grade stone sealers, the surface is protected against moisture, dirt, grime or bacteria. The end result is a surface that is more hygienic than comparable alternatives.
  • With our professional stone polishing services, you also have the ability to keep your stone floors looking at their best at all times.
