Marble floor restoration – Polished white Carrara marble, professionally restored & sealed

Marble floor restoration, our team were in Clifton village, Bristol today restoring a marble floor.

The Carrara marble tiles were installed 3 years ago & had received no professional servicing & the original seal had failed. The main use area of the floor was discoloured, a little scratched & had lost its natural shine.

Marble floor restoration is something to be tackled by professionals and involves an in depth process. After a full chemical strip & deep clean. 4 courses of Italian marble polishing diamonds restored the surface to a full natural polished shine. We then applied a high specification professional sealing product to help with the on going maintenance.

Builders clean: Professional Limestone cleaning

Professional Limestone cleaning, sometimes even the most diligent builder doesn’t possess the correct skills and equipment to finish and otherwise well installed natural stone floor. We were asked to attend this property in Gloucestershire near Tewkesbury to assess the floor as the owner was unable to maintain it to the degree she would like.

After a closer look we discovered that although the floor had received an application of sealer the stone was not fully repellent thereby making cleaning attempts ineffective. The professional Limestone cleaning process would enable us to fix this.

Once we had fully stripped and cleaned the floor we were able to apply the The correct professional sealer for this type of limestone and re-finish the floor to create the look they only wanted and improving their ability to maintain it themselves.

Don’t give up on your natural stone floor if you are struggling to keep it clean or if it doesn’t look quite as you think it should. In almost all instances we can improve and restore the floor to estate that will enable you to maintain and enjoy it.

French Limestone restoration & sealing

The French limestone tiles were sealed & installed four years ago. As with most kitchen floors the stone has been subjected to food and drinks spills and needed our French Limestone restoration experience. The tiles were beginning to show signs of wear & tear including some acid etching and minor scratches.

After we had removed the remnants of sealer and soils from the natural stone & grout, we then repaired the etching and scratch marks. This was done with several grades of Diamond abrasives. Initial harsher grades repaired the damage to the stone. Following Diamond work polished stone giving a warm natural satin sheen to the Stones surface.

Cotswold limestone Floor Restoration customer review 

” Our entrance hall floor was old Cotswold stone flags & grout which had not been treated in any way for many years. It was stained and beginning to flake. Cotswold Stone Floors came promptly, gave good advice on the right treatment, finish and how to look after it in future. It now looks really good and is resilient to all the mud and other stuff which comes on peoples feet into a country cottage. A simple wash over with cold water brings it right back. Cotswold Stone Floors were totally professional and very pleasant to deal with. I would recommend them.”

Customer feedback from a Cotswold Flag stone floor restoration 

We finished a job today stripping, cleaning & sealing a floor of reclaimed Cotswold limestone flags. I was very pleased to receive the following email:-


 Thank you so much for the work you and John have done. We built our house and moved in four years ago. Our biggest luxury was the stone floor. We were on a tight budget at the time so the floor didn’t ever get sealed but we thought if we’re careful it will be fine. Unfortunately it doesn’t work like that. Fours years down the line and the stains and general dirt were well and truly ingrained. I don’t know how you’ve done it but you’ve managed to restore it to it’s original colour, it looks how it did when we moved in, and of course it is now at long last sealed. The quote you gave us was very reasonable and I have to say worth every single penny. I can’t thank you enough and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending your company to anyone!

It would seem many years of regular family use without any proper maintainence.   So we had to use all of our stone cleaning restoration techniques to begin to prise away the years of grime from the sandstone floor tiles

After removing the bulk of the dirt with weighted stone cleaning machines. We set to work removing specific stains and marks from a stone tile surface.

Restoring old flagstones

Restoring old flagstones is a speciality of Cotswold Stone Floor Cleaners. This Traditional old Cotswold Limestone floor had seen many years of use so. We were asked to try to remove the many years of dirt and grime from the limestone surface while keeping the character of the natural stone flooring.

Without leaving a synthetic layer over the stone. We could have removed more from the surface of the stone, but on this occasion our customer wanted to retain some of the natural stone floors’ history.
