Natural stone floors are incorporated into many businesses and homes. They are considered to be a superior flooring alternative and are held in high regard. This often pays testament to their unique character, versatility and durability.

It is incredible how the technologies of restoring natural stone have advanced over the years and we are now best-equipped with versatile product formulations, techniques and machinery.

We were invited to deep clean and fully polish this beautiful stone floor in Lincoln. The homeowners felt as though it had become dull over the years from daily usage and regular cleaning.

Stone Polishing LincolnOur client was well-aware that incorrect usage of cleaning solutions that are not suited to specific stone types can easily cause damage.

Stone grinding requires an in-depth understanding. We use our experience and specialist techniques to produce the best possible results. We take into account the influencing factors such as age of the tile, depth of any scratches or damage, traffic, wear and colouration. The process needs to be tailored to make sure that the end result is exceptional.

We employ the use of our revolutionary stone polishing machinery. This effectively polishes stone tiles and prepares them to be fully sealed. The state-of-the-art machinery that we use produces a superior result in the fastest possible time.

It is sometimes not known that polishing stone leaves it much more hard-wearing and more durable in comparison to an untreated stone flooring. Once sealed, the polished floor works to repel corrosive factors such as dirt, oils, salts and liquids.

Our client was so pleased with the results and felt that we had been able to bring out the intrinsic beauty of her natural stone floor. She loved the look of her high-shine tiles and felt that it appropriately complimented the rest of her beautiful home.
