We have years of experience cleaning and sealing external tile or stone floors, driveways and patios, and we have invested in powerful and efficient jet wash systems. Revitalise the stone work in your gardens with help from the technicians at Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire.
Our initial assessment helps us select from the available options the most appropriate cleaning solutions to achieve the best results. With our knowledge and experience we’ll remove dirt and detritus from your outdoor tile or stone without causing damage or discolouration to the underlying natural material. Any chemicals we use during this stage of the clean will be completely neutralised and washed off before the job is complete, ensuring a safe environment for you, your pets and your children.
Once the external area is dry, if necessary our technicians will re-sand paving or even re-point your patio, to ensure that the final result is the best it can be. We aim to please and, rather than cutting corners, will always go the extra mile to get lasting results. If required, we can seal external areas with a range of different finishes such as matt, satin or gloss. Some of the sealers we use will last between 12-15 years and will help reduce the risk of areas from becoming stained, but will also prevent the growth of unwanted moss and lichen.
Get in touch with Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire today for advice on the most effective maintenance programmes to suit your needs, as well as specialist products to enhance and maximise the lifespan of external hard flooring.
Because all floors require their own individual needs, perhaps different cleaning solutions, strippers and sealers it is impossible to give an average cost. Some areas of floor are very large and again this will have an impact on the costings as they may take longer to restore. Tile & Stone Medic will either arrrange an onsite visit to assess the floor in question, or, if we do not have local cover in that area, we will talk to you in more detail over the phone and perhaps request that you down load some pictures of the floor to us.
Our external floor cleaning services do require driveways and patios to dry out before the service can be completed. For larger areas that are impossible to shield from the weather we may need to plan our work according the weather forecast.
Winter can be especially hard on external surfaces, so we generally recommend a maintenance clean once a year or so. That said, we use the most advanced sealers to protect against moisture, frost and whatever else the weather can throw at your surfaces. Rest assured your results will be of the highest quality.
The jet washers we use aren’t much louder than a running car engine. We’ll always be as considerate as possible to you and your neighbours and we can even schedule our works around your timetable and neighbourhood requirements, such as weekend, weekday out of hours etc.
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.
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.
