Work Description

We were asked to survey and quote on Limestone Floor Cleaning in Bristol for a Client. The premises had been taken back to bare walls for restoration and the floor needed to be cleaned and resealed with an impregnating seal,  prior to Kitchen Installation.

The floor was swept, heavily vacuumed and the dry microfibre mopped to remove any surface debris and soiling. Next a pre-spray was applied to the Limestone Floor of a cleaning solution and water and allowed to dwell. This allows the soil to be removed in higher quantities and easier as the soil has lost it’s bond to the Limestone Floor. This we carry out when Limestone Floor Cleaning in Bristol, to give a cleaner end floor.

Once the cleaning solution has time to work, it is then agitated with a Rotary Machine with a medium stiff brush to get in amongst the tumbled surface. The soil and cleaning solution is then extracted away via an extraction machine and a hard floor wand and rinsed with water.

This process is continued until all the floor has been cleaned and is free from soil. The floor is then left for 48 hours to completely dry out from moisture and we then returned and applied two coats of a solvent based impregnator, to seal the floor from accepting staining into the Limestone.

Conclusion

The Client was then left a maintenance cleaning product, to help maintain the floor without using harsh chemicals that may remove the impregnating seal. The right maintaining cleaner will do this and not leave harsh residues that attract soiling to return faster.
