York Stone Floor Cleaning: 10 Things I Wish I’d Known Earlier

York Stone Floor Cleaning


Strong and beautiful, York stone could be the perfect choice of floor covering for various areas in the home. I simply love it, but I couldn’t imagine that it required special care when I chose it for my house. Now I’m completely confident about York stone floor cleaning, but I wish I were better prepared at the start. Here are the key things which I believe every owner should be aware of.



  •  It’s Necessary Quite Often. 

    The tiny invisible pores of this stone can collect considerable amounts of dust and dirt particles, so weekly sweeping or vacuuming is crucial. Because of the nature of the material, professional cleaning of your York Stone floor is necessary at least once a year.

  •  Special Cleaning Agents Are Required.  

    You can’t clean this type of stone floor with traditional cleaning agents as they are typically acidic and can cause damage which may not be simple to fix later on. It’s essential that you use cleaning agents formulated especially for stone.

  •  Safe Equipment Is Key.  

    Just like all types of stone, this material is prone to scratching. That is why you must forget about hard-bristle brushes. You should also refrain from using plastic vacuum cleaner attachments which are worn. Worn wheels are not good for your floor either. Given this, you should use a soft-bristle brush attachment for vacuuming or a soft mop for sweeping. You can expect York stone floor cleaning specialists to use brush and pad machines for delivering effective results safely.

  •  DIY Doesn’t Produce Great Results.  

    While it is possible to hire equipment and buy advanced cleaning agents, I’ve discovered that I can’t achieve professional results simply because I’m not very good at making the accurate adjustments and using the right cleaner amounts.

  •  Stain Removal Isn’t Straightforward.  

    Blotting spills is one thing, but deep stains are quite difficult to remove. You have to know their origins and what treatment will be both effective and safe for the stone. When it comes to such tasks, I rely on professionals.

  •  Sealant Removal May Be Required.  

    When the sealant isn’t of good quality or has not been properly applied, it should be removed, because it can do more harm than good at the end of the day. I learned this from experience.

  •  Getting Reliable Protection Is Mandatory.  

    After deep York stone floor cleaning, the best way to keep the results is sealant application. It has to be of top quality and to be applied accurately.

  •  More Than Cleaning May Be Needed. 

    I do my best to protect the floor from scratching, but it doesn’t always work. That is why I often use polishing services along with cleaning ones. The results are awesome.

  •  It’s Easy to Achieve the Desired Aesthetics. 

    While cleaning helps York stone to regain its natural beauty, I’ve always found that it could look even better with some lustre. That is why I usually opt for a high-gloss finish when it comes to polishing.

  •   You Can Get Top Results in Little Time. 

    I’ve discovered this when using the expert York stone floor cleaning services of Highfield TS.

    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.
