The Biggest Problem With Stone Floor Restoration, And How You Can Fix It

The Biggest Problem With Stone Floor Restoration.

Are you considering stone floor restoration? Then you should have a clear idea of how it should be done. When the job is done properly, you will have a floor which looks awesome and is in top shape.


What Could Go Wrong

Poor understanding of the nature of the stone which requires restoration is perhaps the most serious issue which you can encounter. It’s one thing to deal with marble and another to work with granite or terracotta. Each type of stone has its own characteristics that should be taken into account. For example, some types are more porous than others and this causes them to stain more easily. The solution could be sealing or impregnation, with the choice once again depending on the structure of the stone. Similarly, some types of stone like marble benefit from stripping followed by polishing, as this enables them to have their natural beauty on display always.  The experienced floor tecnicians at Highfield TS are experienced in the field of restoring stone floors and you can rest assured they will do a professional job.

While stone is amazingly strong and durable, it could get damaged if it doesn’t receive the appropriate treatment. When it comes to stone floor restoration, the choice of materials and tools is essential. The ideal cleaning product is pH-neutral and does an excellent job with getting into the pores of the stone and picking up those nasty dirt, sand and debris particles which cause dullness and making the natural colour darker. In the same way, it’s crucial for the tools used for cleaning, polishing and other jobs to be in perfect condition. A new polishing pad should be used for each job, for instance.

How to Get the Best Results

It’s not hard at all to avoid the key issues described above. You just need to know how to hire the right company for stone floor restoration. It involves some research, but it will all be worth it in the end. While it makes sense to read views and to take into account the experience of the company, you should focus extensively on the techniques, materials and equipment which they use.

The main restoration techniques include deep cleaning, polishing and sealing or impregnation. The cleaning should involve stain removal. It’s essential for each stain to be treated individually, given its nature.

Polishing is effective for removing scratches left by all kinds of abrasive particles. Sometimes, it is not sufficient, however. In such cases, depending on the nature of the stone, the specialists use a technique called stripping for the removal of the topmost layer of the stone. It could be the ideal solution for discolouration, deep scratches, great dullness and improperly applied sealant which has done more harm than good over time.

When it comes to sealing as part of restoring the stone floor, you have to ensure that the service provider will use a proven application technique and a product which is suitable for your stone and is also of very high quality. It is also possible to have a glossy finish added to your floor to enhance its natural lustre. A top company like Highfield TS can provide a restoration service and will offer these option.

Now you know how to deal with the biggest problem associated with stone floor restoration. You can hire experts in the field like Highfield TS with confidence.

    Having received either no response or a very unhelpful response from a few other firms, I contacted Paul during the New Year to carry out some urgent carpet cleaning I required. He responded instantly in a very positive manner and offered to carry out the work on a bank holiday. Paul proceeded to carry out a speedy, professional and truly amazing job - the floors were unrecognisable afterwards - and I cannot recommend his friendly 'can do' attitude highly enough.

    Paul did a great job steam cleaning all the stone floors in our holiday cottages and then put a sealer on top.

    This is the second time we have used the carpet cleaning service of Paul, and again he turned up exactly on time and carried out the cleaning with the expected professionalism required. Our carpets are now like new and at such reasonable rates too. We will happily continue to not only use Paul but recommend him to others too.
