This is a regular customer of ours who have their slate floors maintained by us annually. Their preference is for a high gloss finish and so that is what we give them!
For the initial work several years ago, we were required to strip the slate floor back completely to the bare stone so that we could give it all a deep clean including to the grout lines. This involved removing a build up of old seal from over the years, which proved tricky when trying to remove it from all the undulations of the slate. After neutralising the floor, we were then able to apply our preferred seals and give the high gloss finish they were hoping for. The lovely colours of the slate look much more intensified after sealing and the floors also have a durable, protective coating to prevent stains etc from spillages, and re-soiling.
Having your floors maintained annually or bi-annually (depending on traffic) after the initial work is recommend to keep on top of the floors and keep them looking great all year round for you! This is not as intensive as the first visit and in most cases should only require a good clean and top up of seal.

This marble floor polishing in Banbury was rather dull and a little grubby looking especially to the grout lines. After stripping back and deep cleaning the stone and all grout lines, we then polished the stone to a sheen but the client did not want it too high gloss, and then neutralised and applied a couple of coats of an impregnating sealer to finish.

This beautiful, travertine floor cleaning and sealing in Oxfordshire really benefitted from a good deep clean and seal as the natural colours and patterns within the stone were really brought out and enhanced by this process. The floor was not too grubby, but was dull and lacklustre which did not show the floor off to its full potential.
We also filled lots of small holes within the travertine which were catching the dirt and bothering the customer. We carefully taped around each one after cleaning but prior to sealing, and filled with a stone repair resin filler.

This stone floor was looking rather grubby and dull. The grout lines had become ingrained with dirt and so too had the stone. Using our stripping and deep cleaning processes including cleaning all grout lines by hand, we gave these floors a new lease of life! The natural colours and markings within the stone were really brought out and after applying the seal, the colours were enhanced and the floors looked gorgeous and had a lovely soft sheen!

Everyone hates dirty changing room floors! They make me cringe!!! Therefore, it is really important that they are maintained well and kept clean so that customers have a pleasurable environment to change in and clean floor to walk on in their bare feet.
We recommended to this health club in Oxford that we deep clean their changing room floors every 3-6 months as they get a lot of traffic. The non-slip textured surface of the tiles also makes it difficult to clean the floor properly just with simple mopping.
As you can see from the photos during the floor cleaning process, there is quite a contrast between the parts of the floor which have been cleaned and those which have not, and they cleaned up as good as new on completion.

You can see from the sample to this slate floor below, that it had a thick plasticity type seal to it which had also become discoloured, damaged and looked awful after a flood. We carried out this sample on visiting to quote to judge how difficult the old seal would be to strip off and it did prove very stubborn and time consuming to strip right back to the bare stone, but looked so much better afterwards. The customer was delighted that we could improve on her floors so much and instructed us to do the work.
This slate floor cleaning and sealing in Bicester wasn’t an easy job but was a very rewarding one to see the final results. After stripping back the floors as best as possible (it wasnt possible to remove every last bit of old seal especially where ingrained in the grout lines), we deep cleaned and neutralised the bare floor before finishing with several coats of a natural stone sealer which enhanced the colours and gave a nice sheen to the floor as per the customers preference. This also assists with daily maintenance making it easier to mop clean with the appropriate floor cleaner.

This natural stone floor cleaning in Oxford shows what an amazing difference we can make to your floors! Before, you can see there were grubby, discoloured grout lines and the stone looked dull and lacked the wow factor. In the photos below, the second photo just shows the floor after cleaning and before sealing it. The natural stone floor already looks brighter and lifts the appearance of the whole kitchen.
The photo below shows the far area having been cleaned and the nearest part hasn’t been done yet. The difference is amazing and it looks like a different floor! To achieve this, the floor is stripped back to the bare stone and deep cleaned using the appropriate machinery and products including scrubbing all the grout lines clean by hand. With our meticulous attention to detail, no part of the floor is left untouched and the results speak for themselves.
We then went on to seal the floor with several coats of a water based natural stone sealer to give the floor a lovely sheen to the customers desired level of shine. As well as looking stunning, this will facilitate with daily maintenance and keep the floor looking cleaner for longer.
We can clean any type of stone floor, be it limestone, travertine, marble, sandstone, slate or any other. Contact us today for advice on your natural stone cleaning in Oxford and for a free no obligation quotation.
This slate floor cleaning and sealing in Oxfordshire looked a brand new floor once we had completed the restoration! Due to building works, not only was the floor very grubby but also very dusty and dull and in need of a good clean. The customer wanted a shiny finish which was achieved with a natural stone topical seal. The floor will be so much easier to maintain for her now and it gives the whole room a real lift. The customer was delighted 🙂
There are many different types of slate floor, some of which are trickier to restore than others as they can have a very undulated and uneven surface, but this particular floor was reasonably straight forward and was completed and ready to use again the same day.
These before and after pictures show the great difference between before cleaning and after the slate floor had been fully restored:
