Swimming pool limescale removal, these photographs demonstrate how with the right procedure limescale and other contaminants from the pool can be effectively removed leaving the natural stone surround looking its best.The slate swimming pool surround has been resealed to make ongoing maintenance more effective.We will come back annually to prevent the limescale building up on the slate swimming pool surround to such an extent again in the future.

Contacted by Mr Jones who has a swimming pool with slate surround that had become very stained and tarnished with limescale. The slate surround had been lay for over 20 years and despite domestic cleaning using propriety cleaners the limescale had built up over time.

 

The area of slate to be professionally cleaned was around 150 sq m with difficult access. We lowered the pool to allow full access to the Slate

 

Access was through a double door where the our cleaning machines were brought in. We can fit the tools through a standard door but it made life easier having the extra space

 

The process involved alkaline & later acid cleaning with a Klindex rotary machine, applying honing powder to the cleaning solutions brought some physicality to the process

This was done over a 2 day period by a team of 3.

Improve the colour of natural stone floors

Over time natural stone floors can begin to look tired and unloved. Our professional cleaning processes can improve the colour of natural stone floors.

Floors have a hard life, take a lot of wear. The natural variations in the surface and the tiny pores 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 which 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.
