Victorian Tiles Cleaning York

By hights1 On November 28, 2015 Under Stone Cleaning

Victorian Tiles are very attractive and offer a look of opulence and have a historical feel. For this reason they add character to anywhere that they are laid.

Victorian Tiles YorkA builder from York was working to convert a Victorian house into apartments and one of the last jobs to be done was to enhance the Victorian tiled floor in the entrance hall.

He appreciated that this, with other elements of the build offered a first impression so he wanted the floor tiles to be high gloss with a durable finish that would be able to withstand the foot fall that would be passing on a daily basis.

The tiles were deep cleaned; it is important when cleaning such tiles that care is taken to ensure that they are not dislodged and that specific product formulations are used in order to achieve the best result possible.

The required shine was created by using a Natural Stone Sealer. There is a huge variation of stone sealers available and each provide solutions to different aspects.

What you need to know about Stone Sealers:

Cleaning Victorian Tiles York

  • There are two types of protection of stone and these are impregnators and sealers. An impregnator works to protect the inside composition of the natural stone while a sealer will protect the top surface.
  • A quality product will provide protection against staining and damage. Whilst it offers resistance; this does not mean that a tile is water proof or stain proof.
  • Stone sealers need to be re-applied once worn; a way to identify whether there is sufficient seal is to apply moisture to the tile.

    If beading occurs it is likely that your stone is sufficiently sealed. If the area underneath of the moisture has darkened it is likely that the stone requires a reapplication.

The stone floor was almost unrecognisable once we had finished. If you would like to enquire about our stone restoration services please call today on 0800 0157773.

    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.
