Amtico Floor Cleaning Service Cheshire
Tile & Stone Medic Cheshire are not only vastly experienced in tile and natural stone restoration solutions, we also treat many different types of synthetic hard floor. Amtico is one of the most common types we encounter, so we offer a specific Amtico floor cleaning service to maintain and enhance this flooring for our happy customers.
Amtico floor is relatively inexpensive and extremely tough when compared to some natural flooring materials, but even the most hardwearing of floor materials requires some care to keep it at its best. We offer a range of services to solve common wear and tear issues that occur with Amtico flooring.
Where Amtico is used in particularly busy environments, for example in commercial settings, it will eventually accumulate surface marks. Scratches or chips are not unusual, these can be the result of droppages, dragged furniture of even sharp soled footwear such as stilettos. A combination of polish and specialist filler can be used to lessen or remove this kind of damage.
In some cases, delamination can occur on Amtico floors. This can be the result of inappropriate cleaning solutions. Steam cleaners should never be used on Amtico floors and care should even be taken over which vacuum cleaners are used. If in doubt it’s worth getting a professional involved since it will save more money in the long run.
Spillages should always be wiped up as soon as possible. Whilst Amtico is tough, repeated exposure to dampness will eventually cause delamination. The seams in between the individual tiles are vulnerable to moisture too. Under no circumstances should liquid be allowed to get under the Amtico flooring, this could loosen the tiles and they may need reinstalling.
Without regular sweeping and dry mopping dirt will become ingrained into the surface of the Amtico floor. On lighter coloured installations you may notice dark marks and discolouration on the surface, or a general lack of sheen.
We work efficiently to deliver effective results quickly and without compromise. Before deep cleaning of the Amtico flooring can begin, loose dust and dirt on the surface must first be dry swept. This is essential to stop dust from ruining the stripping and dressing of the floor. With the floor clear of surface dirt we proceed to apply stripper to the Amtico. Working the stripper into the floor releases the more stubborn dirt and discolouration from the surface. When the stripper has been left to dwell it is washed off in preparation for the dressing.
Amtico should be dressed a couple of times for best protection. The process usually takes around an hour including drying time, although will vary depending on the size of the room. With each coat applied at right angles, the Amtico benefits from the most durable finish possible.
To complete the work we can finish Amtico to your specification. If you would like a dazzling sheen we can apply specialist products and polishing techniques to achieve this. A subtler, matt finish is no problem either. Simply discuss what you would like with our engineer and we’ll endeavour to meet or exceed your expectations.

Other Hard Floor Cleaning
Most of the time yes, it can be polished and restored to much improved state. Synthetic floors tend to be quite hard-wearing so will stand up to the kind of polishing that will cut through the dirt.
There are lots of different types of hard floors, and even more names. In almost all cases we can help you improve the appearance of your synthetic floor. Get in touch to find out what we would recommend for your specific needs.
We apply a sealer to a floor in order to protect it. Different types of floor, both manmade and natural stone, are vulnerable to different sorts of damage. They can all be harmed by chemicals to a certain degree, even by the acid in food and drink spillages, as they will be very slightly porous. As well as this, they can be worn away by physical damage. Even foot traffic can have a big impact if dust or grit has built up on the floor, since it increases abrasions. A sealant will reduce the chance of a spill becoming a stain by reducing the floor’s ability to absorb liquids. It can also help protect the appearance of the floor by forming a protective barrier. A sealant won’t prevent all damage and it will still wear away over time, but it will help your floors last longer, helping protect your investment. Sealants will even help protect your floor from UV radiation which can lead to fading over the lifespan of a high value stone or tiled floor. We can consult with you to find the best sealant for your floor and the type of use it gets to make sure it receives the best form of protection.
Absolutely. If this was not carried out by those who fitted the floor get in touch immediately to ensure that the appropriate protection can be applied as promptly as possible. We would recommend that this is carried out once the flooring is in place as this means the grout, which is generally more porous, will also be protected.
We have a range of high quality Faber products which will help protect your floors from damage. As every type of floor is different and has myriad uses, we will consult with you to work out the best way to protect your investment. We can apply topical sealants which form a protective layer on top of the floor, or if needed an impregnating sealant, which will be partially absorbed into the stone or tiles. There are many variations of these sealants and as each floor type has unique characteristics and vulnerabilities we can work with you to find and apply the the best kind of protection.
Firstly, a floor should always be sealed when it is first laid. Get in touch with us straight away if this hasn’t been carried out already. It will also need periodic sealing in order to protect the floor on an ongoing basis. How often sealing is required depends on a number of factors such as the specific material used for your flooring and the kind of use it has to survive. For example, a bathroom with natural tiles that is frequently exposed to water may require sealing more often than porcelain tiles in a kitchen. Frequent maintenance, such as sweeping and hoovering up the dust and grit that erodes floors when trodden on can help. Once the sealant is worn away, not only will scratches be more likely, the risk of staining or permanent damage from liquids is drastically increased as there is no protective layer to prevent absorption. If in doubt get in touch with our team of friendly technicians who can discuss your needs.
The process we carry out will depend on your specific floor and the use that it gets. There will be variations for different materials and the finish that you wish to achieve. The process will also be impacted by the full scale of work that we carry out, for example which types of cleaning and restoration are being performed. It is not unusual to apply several layers of sealant if this is necessary and appropriate.
We always work in the most considerate way possible. Work will be tailored to your needs and will fit around your schedule where possible. We avoid bringing loud or bulky machinery into your home and when a job is complete we thoroughly clean up after ourselves to leave your space looking as tidy as it did when we arrived.
Whilst we may use specialist chemicals in the course of our work, we can assure you that by the time we leave all residues will be gone and your tile or stone flooring will be perfectly safe for everyone to use. We work to extremely high standards of health and safety, conducting proper risk assessments where appropriate and never putting you or anyone else in danger.
