Restore the look of your natural stone floor
Some stone floors are more durable than others but all stone floors require maintenance to keep them looking their best. Dirt and grit carried in from outside can cause scratches and everyday spills can also cause damage to stone floors. If they are not mopped up quickly, acidic spills e.g. wine or citrus can be particularly damaging.
If the stone is not sealed properly, or a cheaper ‘topical’ seal has worn off over time exposing the bare surface, stone floors can be exhausting to maintain and the floor is at greater risk of damage, creating a restoration task instead of a cleaning task.

The key benefits of our stone floor cleaning service
Stone Floor Cleaning
Our TileMaster specialist cleaning solutions have been specifically developed to clean and remove all types of dirt and residues from your natural stone floor. We achieve excellent results by removing ground-in dirt, grease and chemical residues which have been left by years of foot traffic and maintenance cleaning.
Our cutting edge machines are the perfect solution for cleaning all varieties of stone flooring. It enables us to clean floors in space restrictive areas from edge to edge without splashing!!
Strip and Seal
Some floors require more than deep cleaning, especially if the floor has previously been sealed with a number of ‘topical’ seals which may have worn over time. In this instance, we strip the surface right back to expose the bare stone so it’s uniform across the whole floor. Grout lines are deep cleaned, then the floor is sealed using a premium quality, breathable ‘impregnator’ which absorbs into the stone, offering protection from within and not just the surface!
Once we have thoroughly cleaned the surface bringing colour back to your floor, we offer you maintenance cleaning advice to ensure your floor looks spectacular for many years to come.
Our Stone Floor Cleaning Process
Survey The Floor
Prior to arrival we survey all jobs to assess the floor for any damage or potential pitfalls during the cleaning process and measure the area. We identify which type of stone you have by completing a couple of tests and provide a short demonstration to establish how well your floor will clean.
The cleaning results of stone floors can vary and how well they clean will depend on factors such as age, amount of soiling or whether the floor has been sealed or not. We want to be 100% up front with you and meet your expectations. The survey is a great opportunity for you to meet us and answer any questions you may have.
We can achieve a variety of finishes, so we discuss with you the desired look and finish you want be it a natural or matt, satin or shine. We can even enhance the colour to make the floor pop!
Before we start the job, a protective film is applied around furniture and skirting boards to safeguard against any splashes.
The floor is vacuumed thoroughly to remove any dirt or grit laying on the surface which will prevent potential scratches.
Strip any existing surface coating
To achieve the best finish, we must first start with a blank canvas. We will remove any seal or dressing that has previously been applied.
Apply a specialist stone cleaning solution
A premium cleaning solution from TileMaster,suitable for your type of stone, is applied which will start to break down the soils.
After sufficient dwell time with we use our specialist agitation machine the TileMaster vibrating pad system. This solution/agitation combination works deep into the stone to remove ground in dirt and residues from cleaning chemicals which have built up over years.
Note: If your Stone floor has been cleaned using an unsuitable cleaning solution, it can actually cause a build-up of soils and gradually tarnish the look of the floor, maybe even causing damage. This is especially so in Kitchens where there are cooking oils and heavy footfall.
Rinse and extract
Now the dirt has been gently lifted, it is time to give the floor a thorough rinse removing all traces of soils and cleaning solution.
Air movers are used to speed dry the area ready for sealing. Depending on the type of stone and finish you want to achieve, we may need to leave the floor for a few days to dry before the seal can be applied.
If you want your stone floor polished, we use cutting edge diamond pads to achieve the level of shine you desire, as per the demo on the survey, before the floor is sealed.
Apply breathable impregnating seal (optional)
Several applications of ‘Impregnating’ seal are applied. We only use Premium grade seals from TileMaster which penetrate the stone offering protection from within. These are better quality than topical seals which can wear and cause the floor to look patchy over time. The seal with aid maintenance cleaning.

Professional Stone Polishing
Our stone polishing service produces stunning results, tailored to whatever shine you desire.
Whether you have elegant marble or hard wearing Granite, there is no avoiding the fact that at some point, it will require honing and polishing to restore the shine!
Stone Polishing Process
Each stone floor is unique so this process and the steps we take can vary to some degree. Regardless, the results we produce are simply stunning.
First the floor is deep cleaned as per our cleaning process above (steps 1-6). On the survey, we will do a test polish to ascertain the level of shine you want to achieve.
We make necessary repairs to the floor e.g. filling cracks, chips or holes. If the floor has stains, scratches or is etched, we use a series of diamond pads to lightly hone the surface to a clean, smooth layer. This step reveals the stones natural colours and characteristics.
Now we start polishing the stone with graduated finer grit diamond pads to the level of shine you decide.
Note: If you desire a mirror shine, we can achieve this by using our cutting edge Hybrid pads, so long as the tiles are flat with less than 5mm lippage.
Next the floor is thoroughly rinsed to remove slurry, leaving it completely clean and sealed as per the cleaning process (steps 7 to 10).
