Karndean Floor Cleaning

Karndean Floor Cleaning Service Lancashire

At Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire we provide a professional floor cleaning service for all types of manmade and natural flooring. Among the most popular synthetic floor choices is Karndean, a hardwearing and attractive substitute for natural stone or wood. Our Karndean floor cleaning service is the ultimate solution for homes and businesses wishing to keep their Karndean in tip top condition.

Common issues

Whilst Karndean is undoubtedly tough, in order to maintain its sheen and keep it clear of marks it will need occasional servicing. Look out for some of these common issues. If you notice any then consider giving one of our team a call to see how we can help.

It’s impossible to completely prevent dust and dirt around the home, even with regular sweeping. Unfortunately dust particles can eventually scratch Karndean floor if they become trapped underfoot or under the legs of furniture, particularly where furniture has been dragged across the floor. Certain types of shoe sole can leave dark marks too so look out for these.

Karndean will resist stains from most types of spillage, but solvents and wine can leave behind dark marks and damage the surface. The worse other spillages will do is leave behind white spots on the surface of the planks. Bathrooms can be particularly troublesome for this.

Never allow a steam cleaner to be used on your Karndean floor as these can permanently damage the surface. Be careful with vacuum cleaners too since some models can leave behind scratches and marks. If you are at all unsure then reach out to one of the team at Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire for some friendly advice.

Our process

To clean Karndean floor we must first get rid of all dust and debris. If any is left behind it will stop us getting the best results from our clean. Once the floor is clear we can set about removing black scuff marks, white spots and furniture scratches from the Karndean. Specialist solutions are used and gentle worked into the affected areas to get rid of these pesky imperfections.

Once the floor is ready, we apply a specially PH balanced solution to deep clean the Karndean. The solution is diluted to the right consistency then thoroughly applied to the whole floor. Once the floor has dried it’s ready to use, just ensure it isn’t washed again for at least 24 hours.

Where Karndean has experienced more serious wear and has lost its sheen, we provide a strip and refresh treatment to return it to its best. After the floor has been washed, we apply a stripping solution and allow it to dwell on the Karndean for a short time. A carefully match refresher is then worked into the floor and the result is the restoration of the wonderful sheen that Karndean offers. The chemicals are hand picked to work in harmony to achieve this and are perfectly safe for use in the home. We would recommend this service around one a year for the best results.

Amtico Floor Cleaning

Amtico Floor Cleaning Service Lancashire

Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire don’t only provide natural stone maintenance solutions, we also work with a range of synthetic floors. One of the most popular choices for synthetic flooring is Amtico. Amtico is a hardwearing material used in commercial and domestic environments, available in a range of finishes. Despite its durability, Amtico can still benefit from occasional maintenance. Our Amtico floor cleaning service takes this burden off home and business owners, providing a great value solution to all Amtico maintenance needs.

Common issues

Amtico will stand up to a lot of wear and tear, but it’s not invincible. Large heavy objects dragged across the surface will leave behind scratches, sharp objects can even create chips in some circumstances. Be careful about treating damage like this with off the shelf products and equipment. Steam cleaners should never be used since they will cause irreparable damage and even some vacuum cleaners should be avoided. If in doubt consult a professional. To avoid delamination, bubbling and discolouration Spillages should always be thoroughly dried and cleaned up as quickly as possible, especially around the seams of the Amtico tiles.

Our process

To clean and restore Amtico flooring we begin with a dry sweep of the surface. Any dust, hair and debris needs to be thoroughly removed or it will hamper the main restoration process. Once the floor has been thoroughly swept the floor is stripped. Specialist Amtico stripper is applied and left to dwell on the surface of the floor, where it loosens stubborn dirt and marks. The Amtico is then washed to remove the stripper and the dirt with it.

Two coats of dressing solution are then applied to the Amtico. By dressing the floor we build a protective layer so ensure the results of the clean last for as long as possible. The two coats are applied at right angles for maximum durability.

Finally with the Amtico stripped we finish it to your specification. We provide a whole range of finishes, from matt through to high sheen, so just let us know your preference and we’ll endeavour to deliver it.

Working with us

Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire carry out all work safely and professionally. Where required, proper and thorough risk assessments will be made and all health and safety guidelines will be properly followed.

Travertine Floor Cleaning

Travertine Floor Cleaning & Restoration Lancashire

Travertine is a soft form of limestone. It makes excellent choice when used for tiled flooring and if properly maintained it will last for years. That said, it will easily damage if not cared for properly. If you need some help maintaining your travertine tiles why not call Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire today to see how we can help?

Common issues

Travertine flooring can be affected by a range of common problems, most are quite simple for an experienced professional to deal with.

Etching is one of the most common forms of damage to travertine floor tiles. Travertine is porous and easily marked by spillages of common household items like fruit juice, wine, tomato sauce and similar liquids. Etching refers to pale marks on the surface of the tile which are left behind after such a spillage. Etching can occur as a small patch of discolouration, or can cover several tiles depending on the scale of the spill.

Travertine tiling should always be sealed and is often polished too, whether that’s to a matt finish or more of a high sheen. Whatever the case, heavy footfall, moisture and general wear and tear will wear down the top surface of the tile over time. If you’ve noticed your flooring becoming generally duller it may need a fresh polish to bring it back to life.

Resealing is another common job needed to keep travertine tiles in good shape. Sealant forms a barrier against day to day wear and tear, but in protecting the tiles will gradually wear down. Ageing sealant may leave the travertine tiles looking dull, but it will also leave it more susceptible to staining, so you should always ensure the seal is topped up.

If the subfloor underneath your travertine tiles has not been laid properly, or was laid a long time ago, it can lose its rigidity. Movement in the subfloor will, over time, result in loose tiles. If unchecked the tiles may become seriously damaged with chips or cracks. Wear and degradation of the grout between the tiles also happens over time and leads to similar issues. If light coloured grouting has been used it will also show dirt more easily, this dirt can also be trodden into the tiles and leave unsightly marks.



How we maintain travertine tile flooring

We employ a range of techniques to repair damaged or aged travertine floors. In the case of etching, we’d first need to assess the seriousness of the damage. Generally our technique involves using a specialist polish solution to lightly buff out visible damage, before applying a final polish and a reseal.

For travertine tile floors which have dulled, a simple finishing polish might be all that is required to bring life back to the tiles. Polishing can be tailored to your specification depending on the finish you’d like, tiles could be left matt or taken to a higher level of shine. We’d strongly recommend finishing with a sealer to help guard against future staining from spillages and general daily abrasion. The sealer should be topped up approximately once a year to maintain this protection.

In the case of badly damaged tiles with chips or cracks we we would need to make a thorough assessment of the damage to the travertine before we decide on a solution. It may be the case that a tile needs to be wholly replaced, in which case we can help with sourcing replacement stone.

Will repairing my travertine tiles cause disruption?

We always try to fit our repairs around you and cause an absolute minimum of inconvenience to you and your environment. Repair of travertine tile flooring which has suffered staining or dulling can generally be completed in a few hours. Repairs don’t usually involve large or noisy pieces of machinery and the strongest chemicals used would be mild alkali, so you can expect work to be carried out in the safest way possible. You can rest assured the job will be completed efficiently so you can get back to enjoying your travertine floor.

Slate Floor Cleaning & Restoration

Slate Floor Cleaning & Restoration Lancashire

Slate is an immensely popular choice for tiling floors and other surfaces in the home. Whilst resilient, it requires maintenance to keep it looking its best. If you feel your slate floor could benefit from a restoration, why not reach out to Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire today to find out how we can help?

Common issues

Slate doesn’t easily scratch and is water resistant, so it doesn’t generally suffer from the same surface marking as other floor tile choices. It can, however, chip and flake easily. If you’ve noticed small chips on your slate this may not be a major issue. Especially after recently being installed, this is entirely normal and contributes to its unique look. If however the flaking seems excessive and the slate floor has become uncomfortable underfoot its likely in need of restoration.

Some slate floors can appear to become dull as time progresses. Where once the tiles may have gleamed and brightened a room, their reflections can dampen and disappear entirely if the slate isn’t well maintained. This dulling is caused when sealant, especially ‘wet look’ sealer, wears away.

Grout used to hold slate tiling in place can wear over time. Grout is not as water resistant or rugged as slate, so this an area where damage does sometimes become apparent. When customers experience cracked tiles it’s often due to damaged grouting enabling tiles to become loose and vulnerable to impact.



How we maintain slate floor tile flooring

When restoring slate the most common job is simply topping up or completely reapplying the sealant. Particularly when a wet look sealant has been used, a top up can restore an amazing amount of shine back into a once dull slate floor. A professional job can leave it looking as good as, if not better than, new. We have a range of sealant products available so if a shiny finish isn’t what you’re looking for there are many other suitable options. Removing any built up dirt from the surface of the slate is necessary before any sealant can be applied. For this we would use one of our many specialist cleaning liquids depending on the condition of the slate.

In cases where tiling has chipped excessively or shattered, replacement slate is needed for a full restoration. We can help source replacements where necessary. If wear to the grouting has caused the slate to become damaged we have a range of high quality grouting options to ensure you get the longest lasting and most resilient fitting for your floor.

Will repairing my slate floor tiles cause disruption?

Slate is so hardwearing that, unless large amount of tiles need to be replaced, restoration is generally simple and not at all disruptive. No loud and bulky machinery is necessary and any chemicals deemed necessary will be perfectly safe for use in the home. We always work to the highest possible standards of health and safety.

If you think your slate floor may be in need of repair and restoration why not get in touch with us at Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire? We offer a great value service and have the experience we need to deliver you stunning results, every time.

Quarry Tile Floor Cleaning

Quarry Tile Floor Cleaning Lancashire

Quarry tiles have have been a popular choice for kitchen and interior flooring for many years. So much so, in fact, that often they’re so old that they’re buried underneath other flooring that has been installed on top. If you’ve uncovered some in your home, or simply need help cleaning or maintaining your current quarry tile floor, Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire are here to help.

Common issues

Quarry tile floors were once very common in terraces and farmhouses across the country, but many of these floors have since fallen into disrepair. Uncovering quarry tiles from beneath tiling or carpet which has been laid on top is a common job. Depending on what has been used to hold the layered tile or carpet in place, removal can be tricky and should be handled by a professional to avoid damage to the quarry tiles beneath. Strong adhesive can be particularly difficult to remove with without the right equipment.

Since quarry tile flooring can be many years old, often it simply needs a thorough clean. Years of ground in dust and dirt leads some people to think their tiling is beyond repair, but in fact that’s often not the case. Whilst the tiles may appear dirty and discoloured, they’re surprisingly resilient.

Surface damage such as scratches and other abrasions can occur if the tiles haven’t been properly sealed. Grit and dust can be trodden into the floor and over time this can leave lasting marks. A professional polish, buff and reseal is usually enough to remedy this. Worst case scenario, damaged tiles may need to be replaced.

Cracks can occur if the quarry tiles haven’t been laid on an appropriate subfloor. Whilst the top surface of quarry tiling is water resistant, the underside can be damaged by liquid. Water damage through the subfloor will weaken the strength of tile, meaning it’ll be more likely to become loose or shatter from even minor impacts. Cracks caused by impacts and falling objects require replacement tiles.



How we maintain quarry tile flooring

Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire work with a range of cleaning and repair products suitable for quarry tile floor treatment. Adhesives and residues from floors which have been placed on top of quarry tile flooring are easily treated. Once the residue has been identified it’s just a case of picking the right cleaning product and methodically removing it from the quarry tiles.

After any surface glue has been removed we would typically give the quarry tiles a thorough clean. Since quarry tiles are pretty hardwearing, cutting through large amounts of grease and dirt is rarely a problem. You may be surprised at the vibrant colour of the tiles once we’ve gotten rid of the surface dirt!

Once the tiles have been properly cleaned it’ll be very obvious if they have suffered any damage. Scratches and surface marks can be buffed out and in cases where replacement quarry tiles are needed we’ll help source them.

Finally, after the tiles have been cleaned and polished, we apply a tough coat of sealer. Though quarry tile floors are indeed hardwearing, a professional applied sealer will protect your tiles and ensure they stay looking great for as long as possible.

Will repairing my quarry tiles cause disruption?

We work around you and tailor our approach to suit your needs. We always avoid causing inconvenience and work as quickly and efficiently as possible so you get the most value for money.

Generally, we can restore quarry tile flooring in a few hours. In cases where flooring has been installed on top of quarry tiles and first needs to be removed the job can take a little longer. We would need to at least shuffle around, if not remove entirely, any fixtures and furniture which might stop us getting through to the buried quarry tiles.

The chemicals we use for restoration of quarry tile floors are always safe for use in the home, we never use chemicals which would put you at risk.

If you’d like some help making your quarry floor tiles look great again, don’t hesitate to get in touch. With years of experience working with quarry tiles, Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire would be glad to assist you.

Tiled Floor Cleaning & Restoration

Tiled Floor Cleaning and Restoration Service Lancashire

One of our most popular services is the cleaning, sealing and restoration of tiled flooring. This encompasses a variety of tiles including natural stone tiles such as marble, granite and limestone as well as man made tiles such as ceramic, quarry and porcelain. Whilst each type of tile is different, our experience has given us comprehensive knowledge of how best to treat them.

You can browse a wealth of information about different floor types on our website, as they all have their own quirks. We’ll need be sure of what type of tile floor you have in order to use the right cleaning solutions. Even floors of the same type can require different methods depending on the specific instance of the material, its use, age and condition. Using the wrong product can often damage the floor rather than protect it. You can rest assured that Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire will fully analyse the floor type that you have before we decide on the most appropriate solutions to be used.

How we care for your tiled floor

After we’ve picked out the best possible cleaning products for your flooring, we’ll begin the application process. Once applied to the floor, the solutions are worked into the surface of the tile with our rotary cleaners. The cleaning solutions are then left to dwell for a brief period of time. After the solutions have properly dwelled, the floor is washed with our advanced fresh water extractor system. Our cutting edge extractor ensures that all remnants of sealant, dirt, debris and other contaminants are removed from the surface of the tile. The surface is then washed a number of times to make certain that the floor is fully neutralised and free of contaminants. Once the floor has dried, the most suitable sealer based on your floor and desired finish is carefully applied. The sealers we use achieve a range of finishes and offer durable, long lasting protection. We can use impregnating sealers, which will not affect the look of the tile or stone, or a range of wet look, high sheen or matt finish sealers. Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire can also offer advice on the most appropriate sealer to use for maximum effect on your tile or stone floor.

Advice on cost effective maintenance programmes and products to enhance and maximise the life of your tile floor are available on request. Please get in touch with one of our experienced technicians today to discover how we can restore your floor.





FAQs

Tiled Floor Cleaning

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.

Generally yes, depending on how many have become loose and the condition of the subfloor, we can generally restore loose tiles without issue.


In many cases we can, although it depends on the type of tile and how serious the damage is. Let us take us a look at your floor and we’ll make an assessment.


Call Tile & Stone Medic! It sounds like your grout may be contaminated we frequently fix discoloured grouting.


In many cases yes, it’s one of our specialities. We’ll need to take a look at the amount of staining to make a proper assessment.


Absolutely, we stock a range of high quality sealers which we can use to make your tiles shine like new.


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.

Stone Floor Cleaning & Restoration

Stone floor cleaning, sealing and restoration Lancashire

We specialise in treating all varieties of natural stone floor, so that you can enjoy this strong, long lasting natural material.

Natural stone floors

We work with a huge range of types of natural stone that have been put to use in a wide range of contexts. The advantages and limits of each type of stone are very different, but our experience, equipment and hard work ensures that we always get the best possible results for your investment. All natural stone floors are worth protecting, we aim to deliver the best long term protection.

Common issues

Each type of stone has its own strengths and challenges. The best solution for your floor depends on your unique situation. What we do know is, all stone floors suffer from general wear and tear. Most commonly we see dust, dirt and grime that has been trodden into the stone and left behind marks. Regular, careful dusting and vacuum cleaning helps limit how quickly these marks appear, but it’s near impossible to prevent them completely. Highly polished floors tend to deteriorate soonest, its hard not to notice when they lose their shine.

When dealing with more porous type of rock, or in cases where the sealant has completely worn away, water and other liquids can cause staining. Acidity commonly found in fruit juice, sauces and other household items can leave long lasting imprints on certain types of stone and the use of incorrect cleaning products and solutions can cause further irreparable damage.

All tiled floors tend to use grouting to secure the individual pieces. Grout is softer than tile so is often more vulnerable to deterioration than the tiles themselves. Being slightly recessed, the grout can collect dirt which discolours its porous surface.



How we maintain natural stone floors

The exact process we use is tailored according to the type of stone, the state of the floor and the finish that you would like to achieve. Here is an example workflow:

  1. Tile and Stone Medic will assess the floor type that you have in order to decide the most suitable solutions to be used.
  2. The solution is applied and left to dwell for a few minutes.
  3. The cleaning solutions are worked into the floor using our rotary cleaners.
  4. Once the dwell time has been reached, the floor is washed using powerful fresh water extractors. This ensures removal of all old sealers, dirt and other contaminants from the stone.
  5. The floor’s surface is washed several times to neutralise it and free it of any soiling.
  6. Once the floor has dried, the chosen sealers are carefully applied. The sealers range from impregnating sealers which will not affect the look of the tile or stone, to satin, reflective and matt finishes.

FAQs

Stone Floor Cleaning

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.

Once we have spoken to you in more detail we will be able to give you an idea of the time allocation required to restore your floors to a high level.

Absolutely! we are always happy to show you our insurance certificates or down load them to you if so required.

Yes, ideally if you want the job done to the best of our ability, then all furniture, kick plates in kitchens etc should be removed. However, don’t worry we will help you manage this.

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.


Almost certainly. Send us a picture or a description and we’ll identify your stone. We always assess a surface before work starts in order to pick the most appropriate solution.


Usually we are able to stabilise stone flooring where it has become loose. We can repair grouting and make spot repairs to the subfloor where necessary.


Yes, we have a range of fillers we can use to repair chipped or dented stone.


We are happy offer advice on best practice to look after your flooring, but it depends on the type of floor you have. Once we’ve had a look at it we’ll be able to help.


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.

Marble Floor Cleaning & Restoration

Marble Floor Cleaning & Restoration Lancashire

Marble is a ‘relative’ of limestone, having been derived from the same stone. Available in many colours, marble is used by people around the world due to its natural beauty.

Sometimes it might seem like there is no solution to the damage sustained by marble surfaces, but your floors can be restored by specialist honing and polishing. Honing is a satin smooth surface with little light reflection, whereas a polished finish has a glossy surface that reflects light. This in turn dramatically emphasises the colours and marking on the marble. Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire can help you with a one off cleaning and restoration job, or work with you on a longterm maintenance plan, ensuring your marble will last for many years to come.

Common issues

Most often marble suffers from a gradual dulling of its surface due to the build up of micro abrasions. This can be caused by accumulated dirt and debris, or simply by regular footfall. When marble is worn in this way it can be particularly noticeable if the surface had previously been polished. Marble is porous, easily stained and can be etched by acids. So spilling fruit juices, carbonated drinks or other acid based items will remove the finished surface from your marble.



Our solution

Our extensive experience with marble means we’ll quickly identify the cause of the problem, the extent of the damage and the most appropriate solution. We offer a number of solutions for repairing cracked and badly scratched marble. Whilst we can’t promise a 100% invisible repair, in most cases we’ll be able to reverse the majority of visible damage or wear.

  • Tile & Stone Medic Lancashire not only clean and seal marble, but we can also restore it by honing or polishing to remove scratches and etching marks
  • The process is simple and safe and makes no mess at all.

Yes, please call us to discuss. If your business has specific needs and access restrictions we will work to accommodate them.


Complete replacement floors are generally outside the scope of our work, but we would love to work with you to find a solution you’ll be happy with. In many cases our restoration service can make a floor nearly good as new at a much lower cost than a full replacement. If you have had a new floor fitted we would certainly recommend that you have it sealed to ensure its longevity.


Absolutely, keeping you and your customers safe is a top priority.


We’ll need a bit more information in order to make a proper assessment, things like how many stories, the approximate floor size and how much furniture is in the building. We always work as quickly as possible without compromising quality.


Maintenance programmes are available on request, please contact us to see how we can best meet your requirements


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.


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.

Black mould is not uncommon in areas with a lot of moisture. It doesn’t pose a catastrophic risk, but care should certainly be taken to keep children and animals away from it. It’s nothing to panic about, but we’d recommend getting a professional to take a look as soon as possible. In most cases we are able to neutralise and completely remove black mould, as well as offering practical advice on how to stop it coming back.


In the vast majority of cases this is due to a buildup of soap and other cleaning liquids, usually a result of splashes when showering. In most cases it can be fixed and we are able to help you get the best results possible for your bathroom.

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.
