Stone Cleaning

Our Stone Cleaning and Restoration service covers both domestic and commercial cleaning using the very latest safe and effective methods of restoring old and worn stone or tiles 'without affecting the substrate'.

This is achieved by using 150 degree 'cutting' steam which effectively cuts and strips layers of paint and dirt effortlessly but does not affect the stone or brick in any way.

Many of our stone cleaning and sealing products used, are from market leaders Lithofin who's expertise with tile and stone cleaning and sealing spans over 50 years and is backed by continuous laboratory testing from German technology, which means that you receive the very best in performance and reliability.

The methods of removing dirt, grime and stains incorporates solutions that gently release layers of 'build up' to reveal the natural colour and finish of wall and floor finishes without the use of invasive 'blasting with pressure washers' that can damage older or more porous surfaces.

Our 'ultimate cleaning machine' as seen below is a ThermaTech machine that uses steam at 150 degrees to effectively kill algae, moss etc and removes oil, stains and dirt without using gallons of precious water.

This innovation cleans 'more' than conventional and agressive pressure washers using 'far less' precious water and mess.

This means that driveways in particular can be cleaned 'without' losing the protective and structural sand from the joints, which results in a far cleaner job being completed.

Our stone cleaning services includes cleaning, sealing and restoring of stone, including floors and walls both internal and external.

Both old and new stone can be rejuvenated back to a very high finish taking away 100% of all removable dirt and discoloration, some by chemical release and others by the use of water or steam.

Every situation is different however, many of the processes are similar with the results being instant and easily identified as 'clean once again'.

Examples of areas that we clean are:

  • Kitchens, bathrooms, showers, en suites
  • Floors, walls, features, pillars
  • Patios, balconies, verandas
  • Domestic, commercial, industrial
  • Washrooms, canteens, communal areas
  • Storage areas, factories, offices

Some stone is hard wearing and will not need a sealant to cover the surface, whereas others that are porous, need a degree of protection either with a surface seal or a penetrating sealant.

The stone cleaning process takes away any previous sealant with the dirt and in some cases with products such as travertine or old natural stone will need resealing on completion to repel all oil, water and future staining.

Hundreds if not thousands of homes in Newport, Cardiff and the surrounding areas have a diverse mix of stone finishes and thanks to the introduction of carpets and laminate have been protected since the 40's, 50's and 60's and still hold an exceptional quality.

Some of the most sought after stone finishes have been hidden away for years, however today's trends are to revert to the 'older' styles and thankfully because of the quality of these finishes and the reasonable costs of restoring stone, they are well suited to being restored to their former looks and quality.

All stone cleaning services include replacements wherever necessary and a thorough clean before protecting with long lasting sealants to keep your floors and walls looking their best for years to come.

Any area of natural or man-made products can be treated to remove years of grime, dirt, grease deposits and staining. Many of these problems cannot be solved by applying force with water as this is often an 'overkill' that loosens jointing in mortar such as brickwork and stonework or sand in driveways and paving.

By using biodegradable chemicals for stone cleaning, brickwork and paving we are able to retain the natural qualities and can also treat all surfaces to prevent future contamination of lichen, bacteria and dirt 'holding' on the surface, considerably reducing further maintenance.

We are able to process insurance claims and will assist with your nominated company being notified of the work necessary and costs assessed for completion of repairs.

Test areas can be carried out to show an example of the finish you can expect prior to quotations being offered. This we can do by testing an inconspicuous section that allows you to see 'the finish' that can be achieved by professional cleaning.
