    Natural stone floor

    Natural stone floor

     

    I have had a natural stone floor installed in my house, how do I look after it?

    After having your lovely new floor laid, whether it s marble, granite, limestone or slate, you need to know how to look after your investment and to keep it looking good day in day out. Almost all natural stone floors will show some surface wear and tear over time. A stone floor sealer/ impregnator will dramatically help protect the surface from spillage’s  and staining. And an annual floor maintenance schedule should be set with a professional natural stone floor cleaning company like Clean n Seal Southwest. 

    We always supply our customers with a floor care and maintainer. This product can be used on a weekly basis, and mixed with water and a micro fibre flat mop can keep your stone floor looking good.


    Can I apply a sealer/impregnator to my natural stone floor myself?

    You can apply a sealer or an impregnator to your natural stone floor, but I would highly recommend you get in contact with a professional stone floor sealing company who have the equipment and expertise to do the work for you. Not knowing what you re doing can seriously affect the look of any stone surface, making sure the floor is totally clean before sealing is very important as you may seal in old stains.


    What shall I do with stains and spillage's?

    Wipe up any spills immediately to avoid any permanent damage. Use a damp cloth to wipe away spills from water based spills like tea or coffee, try not to swipe the stain instead try blotting the spillage. For oil based spills a white spirit will help. For stains use a poultice to draw out the stain, this process can be very time consuming and is best left to the experts to do for you.


    How can I tell whether the stone has a stain or an etch mark?

    A spot which appears dark and shaded is more than likely a stain whereas an etch mark will appear to be dull with a rich haze to it.

    I've had a marble floor installed and now there's dull spots all over it. What is causing this and how can I get rid of them?

    This is commonly referred to as etching. Etching eats away at a polished surface and produces those rough dull marks that you see on your flooring. Mild etching feels smooth and can be removed with a polishing powder If the etching is more serious, you will need to contact a natural stone restoration professional like clean n seal southwest


    I have removed a carpet to discover a natural stone floor, can it be refurbished?  

    Yes. You need the services of a natural stone restoration professional to restore the floor to its former beauty.


    What are the payment options?

    We only take payment when the work is complete and you are 100% happy with the work and satisfied with the cleaning down of the work area, we accept cash, cheque or BACS.


    Are you insured?

    Yes we are fully insured and you can request to see our terms and conditions too.
