Flagstone Cleaning  & Sealing – The Advantex Way

A flagstone is a sedimentary rock that is split into layers along well defined bedding planes caused by a different mineral type or particle sizes. A flagstone is usually produced from a form of sandstone composed of feldspar and quartz. The material that binds flagstone is usually composed of silica, calcite, or iron oxide. The rock colour usually comes from these cementing materials. Typical flagstone colours are red, brown, and buff, though some other colours do exist.

Flagstone cleaning comprises of cleaning using a range of cleaning products and usually brush based equipment to remove soils and seals.
