Over time natural stone can begin to look tired and unloved.
Floors have a hard life, & taking a lot of aware. The natural variations in the surface and the tiny pours collect soil and dirt as we walk over them.
But other factors take a toll on natural stone too, strong sunlight can have a bleaching effect on the stone surface. Along with some proprietary cleaning products will actually strip the colour from the stone.
We called in to a property near Northleach just East of Cheltenham to help out with the slate stone floor was not looking its best.
After removing all of the old sealers and ground in dirt, we were able to expose the natural stone surface ready for the next process. We chose a product that would help ongoing maintenance of the stone draw out the colour & beauty of the Slate.
Unlike old-fashioned or cheap sealers this process does not leave a veneer-like plastic surface on the natural stone. The sealer molecules penetrate into the pours of the stone. Sealers that rely on covering the surface of the stone wear out in the main walkways where they are needed the most.
This penetrating sealer works from within the body of the stone repelling moisture and dirt.
