Victorian Floor Cleaning and Restoration in Great Paxton, Cambridge

We were called out to this property in Great Paxton to have a look this this Victorian Tile Hallway.

A little extra was involved in this restoration then usual, we had to remove concrete from two sections of the floor to be replaced with spare tiles from under the staircase.

Once all the concrete is chipped out, the hole left is cleaned and filled with a self levelling compound to the required level for tilling, once the compound had dried the tiles are cut and laid.

Finally the stone is cleaned/restored and sealed with a water based topical sealer.

  2. We Protect your walls and furniture with our décor wall protector tape, this is used to protect your walls against any over spray from water or chemical. We do how ever can not guarantee there wont be any slight damage to paint work or any sensitive materials in the immediate area of cleaning due to the need to clean right up to the edge.

  6. After the floor is completely dry we can begin filling in the holes and cracks in the tiles, this consists of using two different types of grout filler to get the correct colour (it is not possible to exactly match the tile colour.) once the cracks have been filled and left to harden slightly we remove any excess grout from the tile and smooth down the surface for a flush finish.
  7. Application of Sealer. We use a Impregnating sealer on Travertine which is a solvent based sealer. This sealer impregnates the stone & after 30-45mins all excess residue is removed from the surface.
