Cotswold Stone Floor Cleaners are experts in Riven slate floor restoration. This kitchen floor just south of Oxford had been suffering from moisture build-up beneath the varnish that had been applied to the floor.
The seal build up can be seen around the edges of the tiles in the ‘before’ pictures below. The moisture had forced the varnish sealer away from the slate surface. Leaving an unfortunate ‘sunburnt skin’ look to the floor:
We used metal sintered grinding diamonds to remove the seal along with the uneven riven nature to the floor. Once the floor was flush with the grout lines we then set about improving the stone surface to bring it up to a natural low sheen honed finish. The floor is all now on the same level making ongoing maintenance simple and displaying a natural stone at its best.

while repelling any bills in stains from the surface the floor was also able to breve and allow evaporation of any moisture that may come from the subfloor.
