Restore the look of your natural stone floor
Some stone floors are more durable than others but all stone floors require maintenance to keep them looking their best. Dirt and grit carried in from outside and everyday spills can cause damage to stone floors. If they are not mopped up quickly, acidic spills e.g. wine or citrus can be particularly damaging.
If the stone is not sealed properly, or a ‘topical’ seal has worn off over time exposing the bare surface, stone floors can be at greater risk of damage, creating a restoration task instead of a cleaning task. Maintenance cleaning will have no little or no effect to keep a clean appearance, causing the stone to look dull, dirty and lifeless.
Are you thinking all Stone cleaning companies are the same?
We never lower our standards with any of our cleaning services. Our focus has always been on ‘quality cleaning’ at a satisfactory price. We use premium cleaning and protection solutions and top of the range equipment to achieve the best deep cleaning and floor restoration possible – no expense is spared.
Do it right and do it once
Setting this level of quality craftsmanship sets us aside from general cleaning companies, and those who lack the essential training and merely dip into tile and grout cleaning.
Our high standards achieve optimum results each and every clean – we don’t cut corners to save time!!

Our Stone Floor Cleaning Process
Our specialist cleaning solutions have been specifically developed to clean and remove all types of dirt and residues from your natural stone floor. We achieve excellent results by removing ground-in dirt, grease and chemical residues which have been left by years of foot traffic and maintenance cleaning.
Strip and Seal
Some floors require more than a deep clean, especially if the floor has previously been sealed with a number of unknown seals. In this instance, we strip the surface right back to expose the bare stone. Grout lines are deep cleaned, then the floor is sealed using a premium quality, breathable ‘impregnator’ which absorbs into the stone, offering protection from within and not just the surface!
Once we have thoroughly cleaned the stone bringing colour and life back to your floor, we offer you maintenance cleaning advice to ensure your floor looks spectacular for many years to come.
Prior to arrival we survey all jobs to assess the floor for any damage or potential pitfalls during the cleaning process and measure the area. We identify which type of stone you have by completing a couple of tests and provide a short demonstration to establish how well your floor will clean.
The cleaning results of stone floors can vary and how well they clean will depend on factors such as age, amount of soiling or whether the floor has been sealed or not. We want to be 100% up front with you and meet your expectations, so the survey is a great opportunity for you to meet us and answer any questions you may have.
We offer a variety of finishes, so we discuss with you the desired look you want, be it a natural, matt, or whatever level of shine you want to achieve. We can even apply a colour enhancer to pop the colours within the stone!
Before we start the job, a protective film is applied around furniture and skirting boards to safeguard against any splashes.
The floor is vacuumed thoroughly to remove any dirt or grit laying on the surface which could potentially cause scratches.
To achieve the best finish, we must first start with a blank canvas. We will remove any seal or dressing that has previously been applied.
A specialist stone cleaning solution, suitable for your type of stone, is applied which will start to break down the soils.
After sufficient waiting time we use our specialist equipment to scrub the floor. Either the world renowned Klindex Rotary scrubber or our TileMaster vibrating pad.
Note: Using an unsuitable cleaning product on your stone floor can tarnish its appearance or damage the stone or seal that has been applied! Steam is not recommended on stone floors that have been sealed.
The floor is thoroughly rinsed to remove all traces of soils, then pH neutralised.
If you want your stone floor polished, we use cutting edge diamond abrasives to achieve the level of shine you desire, as per the demo on the survey, before the floor is sealed.
Air movers are used to speed dry the area ready for sealing. Depending on how porous the stone is, we may need to leave the floor for a few days to dry before the seal can be applied.
Application of a ‘premium grade’ impregnating seal is applied which will penetrate the surface and sit within the stone offering protection from within. These are better quality than topical seals which can wear and cause the floor to look patchy over time. The seal will aid maintenance cleaning.
Once we have restored your stone floor, we provide you with a FREE bottle of pH Neutral Stone Cleaner (enough for 6 months) and offer you maintenance cleaning advice to ensure your floor looks spectacular for many years to come.
Note: It is advisable to use a cleaning product from the same manufacturer as the seal as the products safely work together. We can supply you with the Neutral Stone Cleaner going forwards.
Would you like a tailored maintenance plan? A deep clean after 12 months will not only keep your floor looking fresh in appearance but enables us to top up seals ensuring maximum protection. On commercial and high traffic properties, a maintenance clean may be required at more frequent intervals.

Professional Stone Polishing
Our stone polishing service produces stunning results, tailored to whatever shine you desire.
Whether you have opulent Marble or exquisite Travertine, there is no avoiding the fact that at some point, it will require a specialist to restore the shine!
Stone Polishing Process
Each stone floor is unique so the process and the steps we take can vary to some degree. Regardless, the results we produce are simply stunning.
First the floor is deep cleaned as per our cleaning process outlined above. On the survey, we will do a test polish to ascertain the level of shine you want to achieve.
If the floor is damaged, we make the necessary repairs e.g. filling cracks, chips or holes. If the floor has stains, scratches or is etched, we use a series of diamond abrasives to hone the surface to a fresh layer.
Next, we polish the stone with graduated finer grit diamond abrasives to the level of shine you decide.
Note: Want a mirror shine? We can achieve this, so long as the tiles are flat with less than 5mm lippage.
Lastly, the floor is thoroughly rinsed to remove slurry, leaving it completely clean and sealed as per the cleaning process (steps 7 to 10).
If you want to maintain the high shine, we can offer a maintenance package that suits your requirements
