Karndean Floor Cleaning

Karndean Floor Cleaning Service Worcestershire

Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire’s Karndean floor cleaning service makes maintaining and restoring Karndean floor an absolute breeze. You need not worry about investing in specialist cleaning products or finding the right equipment to achieve best results. We provide an efficient and cost effective cleaning service to get your Karndean floor looking better than ever.

Common issues

Karndean is highly durable and will stand up to a lot more abuse than many natural materials. Even so, to maintain its sheen and keep it free from marks it should be treated occasionally. Perhaps you’ve noticed some of these tell-tale signs that your Karndean needs a refresh?

Without thorough regular sweeping, swirling, scratches and gouges can appear over time. These are often a consequence of rearranging furniture, particularly if any dust and dirt has become caught under furniture legs. Dark scuff marks can also be left behind from footwear and appliances.

White spots occur on Karndean when spillages are not quickly cleaned up. These are most often found in bathroom installations. Staining is rarer, but can be caused by solvents and wine spillages. Any and all spillages should be cleaned up as soon as possible to minimise damage to the floor.

Damage to the surface of the floor will also happen if the wrong equipment is used on Karndean. Never use a steam cleaner on the floor and proceed with caution with household vacuum cleaners. If in doubt speak to one of the team at Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire for some advice.

Our process

In order to get started we first need to ensure the Karndean is clear of all contaminants. This means a thorough mop and sweep of the floor, being sure to catch any dust and dirt. With the floor clean we can get a proper view of any scuffs and scratches and set about buffing them out.

Once the floor is free of dust and dirt and all marks have been removed the floor can be washed. A specially selected PH balanced cleaning solution is carefully diluted to the correct consistency then thoroughly applied to the floor and left to dry. With the floor dry it is ready for us, although care should be taken to not wash the floor for at least 24 hours after cleaning.

If your Karndean flooring is more heavily worn and has lost its satin sheen then you may benefit from our strip and refresh service. After the floor has been treated with a PH balanced wash, we go a step further and apply specialist stripper. The solution is left to dwell on the floor for a short time before a refresher solution is applied. These two specialist products work together to restore the satin sheen back to the Karndean. In order to maintain this, we’d recommend this treatment around once a year.

Our standards

We pride ourselves on the quality of our work. Our results are always outstanding, but so are our team.

Other Hard 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.

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.


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.



Amtico Floor Cleaning

Amtico Floor Cleaning Service Worcestershire

Amtico is a tough synthetic material popular in domestic and commercial environments. Whilst durable, it also comes in a range of attractive finishes, but in order to keep it looking its best occasional maintenance is required. Our Amtico floor cleaning service takes the workload off your hands and provides results that last, so you enjoy great looking flooring at even better value.

Common issues

Amtico is extremely durable, but even the toughest hard floor materials eventually show signs of wear and tear. Most common issues with Amtico floor are surface marks which can usually be removed with carefully selected solutions and techniques.

Heavy objects like sofas can leave behind gouges and chips if dragged across the floor. Steam cleaners should never be used since they can cause permanent damage and be wary of vacuum cleaners too, some can leave behind scratches if not used correctly. Spillages of any kind should be cleaned up immediately so as to avoid discolouration and staining. Any seams between Amtico tiles are vulnerable to spillages to ensure these are kept dry.

Our process

Restoring worn Amtico flooring is a fairly straightforward process. Initially the floor is dry swept or mopped to remove surface dust. This is essential to stop the dust from disrupting the rest of the deep clean.

With the floor free of dust, it can be stripped. The stripper is worked into the floor to loosen ingrained dirt from the surface. After the stripper has been allowed to dwell the floor is washed.

With the floor stripped and washed the Amtico is ready for dressing. Dressing Amtico requires a couple of coats, applied at right angles for best protection. Application and drying of both coats generally takes around an hour, but varies depending on the size of the floor.

Once the Amtico floor has been stripped and dressed we can apply a final polish to your specification. If you would like a reflective or glossy finish we can polish and seal the floor to achieve these. We also offer a subtler matt finish or anything in between, just let us know.

Working with us

Rest assured, when you work with Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire for your Amtico floor cleaning all work will be carried out safely, professionally and thoroughly. Our polite and punctual engineers will arrive on time and endeavor to complete work within the given timeframe. All health and safety requirements and risk assessments will be taken care of and disruption to you and your home will be kept to an absolute minimum.

Terracotta Tile Cleaning & Restoration

Terracotta floors

Terracotta is an attractive, kiln-fired material suitable for flooring in many parts of the home. Without proper care it can become damaged from regular wear and tear. Is your aged terracotta flooring in need of restoration or repair? Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire have years of experience and would be glad to help whatever the case.

Common issues

If terracotta flooring is not carefully maintained it can begin to show marks fairly quickly. Surface scratches and abrasions are common. These marks tend to occur when the terracotta hasn’t been hoovered or swept regularly enough, causing detritus to be ground into the surface of the tile under foot.

Terracotta floor tiles are generally unglazed. Furthermore, they’re highly porous, in fact they become more porous with time, so it’s essential they are properly sealed. When the tiles begin to look worn and dull their seal may have become exhausted. If staining is visible this is certainly the case.

Issues with the subfloor can cause major damage to terracotta tile flooring. Due to their porous nature, if moisture is allowed to get underneath the tiling through the subfloor it can wreak havoc with the terracotta. Look out for discolouration or loosening of the tile, if the tiles don’t sit flat there may be an issue underneath.



How we maintain terracotta flooring

Whilst terracotta can wear easily, when it has suffered and become worn restoration is usually a simple matter of choosing the right tools for the job. In the case of scratched or marked tiles, a thorough buff and polish can remove the majority of marks and get them looking fresh again. Where staining has occurred, a heavy buff will lessen its impact.

Where liquid marks and staining are apparent we would apply a new coat of strong sealer to prevent damage in the future. The sealer acts as a barrier against further dirt and spillages but it won’t last forever. In our experience a new coat of sealer once a year is the best way to keep terracotta looking its best.

If the subfloor has decayed or failed to prevent moisture from getting in the terracotta it can be a challenge to restore it back to its former glory. In these cases replacement tiles may be necessary and we can help source them.

Will repairing my terracotta tiles cause disruption?

Our aim is to restore your terracotta flooring to the highest possible standard with an absolute minimum of disruption to your environment. Maintenance of terracotta does not require heavy or noisy machinery, nor dangerous or corrosive chemicals. Rest assured, we work to the best standards of health and safety.

If you have terracotta flooring in your home and would like help with restoration or general repairs we are here for you. Call Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire today for a no obligation chat about how we can be of service.

More about cleaning Terracotta

Terracotta tiles are a wonderful way to create a warm, rustic atmosphere in the home. Made from fired clay, the name translates as ‘baked earth’. The orangey-brown colour of terracotta never fails to brighten up a kitchen and, with tiles readily available in a range of sizes, they’re generally quite straightforward to replace should anything go wrong.

Taking care of terracotta tiles in the home can involve a little more work than some types of flooring. Terracotta is naturally a highly porous material, meaning it absorbs spillages quickly. Making sure it’s well looked after is essential to make it last a long time and keep it looking great.

If you have an older terracotta floor in your home it’s usually a good idea to check the subfloor to ensure it’s not causing your tiles to wear out quicker. With some older terracotta floors it’s not unusual to find a poor subfloor underneath. A subfloor is supposed to provide support and an anchor point for the tiles on top. Traditionally terracotta would be installed onto subfloors made of sand, which is far from waterproof and leaves the tiles vulnerable to moisture from underneath. This is a particularly frustrating problem, since the signs of damage are often not obvious until it’s too late. Thankfully terracotta tiles aren’t particularly expensive to replace, but it’s worth dealing with the cause of the problem rather than symptom or you may end doing this over and over again!

A professional tile cleaning and restoration company get help you get a much longer life from your terracotta tiles. Our cleaning and sealing service creates an effective water repellant coating to properly protect this beautiful flooring. With a professional seal in place, maintenance becomes a straightforward matter of a quick sweep or vacuum a couple of times a week. You’ll still need to wipe up spills quickly to keep the floor looking great, but the chances of staining will be much lower. What’s more, at Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire we stock a range of sealers than can enhance the look of terracotta. Want a reflective wet look finish or a soft matt sheen? No problem, just let us know and we’ll select the perfect products for the result you want.

A professionally applied seal is really the number one way to take care of your terracotta tiles. With regular sweeping it’ll keep your tiles looking good as new for months, but it’s sadly not permanent. We’d generally recommend a refresher coat of sealer once or twice a year depending on the level of use the floor has to withstand. Pet claws, for example, can scratch and wear away at sealer a little quicker than slippers and socks. It’s usually a pretty simple job to refresh the protection of floor so long as it has been well looked after in the interim. If not it’s no reason to panic, we’re known throughout the region for our great value refurbishment services and we’d be delighted to help.

If you’ve got terracotta tiles in your home and are looking for an experienced team to take care of them then you’re in the right place. Get in touch with us today and one of our friendly, experienced technicians will work out what you need and the best time to do it. Remember, natural materials have very specific cleaning requirements, so only ever work with a company who truly understand them. With Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire you’re in safe hands.

Limestone Floor Cleaning & Restoration

Limestone floors

Limestone is a fantastic naturally occurring stone which makes for some beautiful interiors. Maintaining limestone can be hard, it’s a porous, soft stone vulnerable to wear. If you think you might need help maintaining limestone flooring in your home or business why not have a chat with Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire today? We have years of experience, with us you can be sure of a professional service.

Common issues

Wear and tear can show more easily on limestone than on alternative floor types. Heavy footfall and regular impact will erode the surface over time, it’s unfortunately hard to avoid. If the top of the stone was once smooth and has become uneven or worn it’s a sign it’s in need of restoration. Limestone is particularly sensitive to liquids such as juices, wine and vinegar. Spillages are often the cause of worn, tired-looking limestone floor.

We’ve also seen limestone floors damaged by abrasive cleaning chemicals used improperly. Due to its chemical sensitivity and a lot of bad advice on the internet it’s easy to pick up a product that will actually damage, rather than protect, limestone. Using the wrong products on limestone will stain and discolour its sensitive surface.

Even if the right products are used, their protective seal can rapidly deteriorate if they’re not professionally applied. If you’ve noticed fading on the surface of your limestone floor the seal could have expired. Worn or poor quality sealant also allows dirt and dust to cling to the surface of the limestone more than usual. Its appearance will darken and it will become very difficult to clean.



How we maintain limestone flooring

Based on years of experience, we are confident we have the specialist knowledge needed to professionally restore your limestone floor. Where rubbing and marks have appeared on the surface of the stone we carefully polish it using specialist equipment until the marks lessen. We work carefully and deliberately so as to avoid any additional wear to the soft rock.

All chemicals that we use to restore limestone are tried and tested, chosen specifically because they will not harm the sensitive surface of the rock. We may select different chemicals depending on how worn the limestone is, but all will be entirely safe.

Sealer is essential when working with limestone floor, it’s vital to preserve the finish once the stone has been fully cleaned. Like all specialist cleaning chemicals we use, the sealer will be carefully chosen and applied properly in order to ensure great looking and long-lasting results.

Will repairing my limestone floor cause disruption?

Limestone floor requires a bit of maintenance to keep it looking great, but don’t worry, that doesn’t mean we’ll tow loads of heavy, noisy machines into your home or workplace. All our restoration services are carried out with an absolute minimum of disruption to you and your environment. The chemicals we use to restore limestone may be specialist, but they will always be totally safe for use. You can rest assured we apply only the highest standards of health and safety and always clean up after ourselves.

Victorian Minton Tile Cleaning

Victorian Minton tiles are frequently hidden under years of dirt and grime, neglected, sometimes even completely re-covered by newer floor installations. If you have found aged or dull Minton tiling in your home and are looking for some help restoring it to its former splendour, Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire are here for you!

You may be shocked at how much of an improvement a full professional clean and restoration can make to faded Minton tiles. We have many years of experience working with Minton floors in all kinds of conditions and have found often they can be made to look as if they’ve been freshly laid. If you’re thinking of removing your old Victorian tile we’d suggest first considering a restoration. Minton tiles are wonderfully unique pieces and restoration offers a cheaper and, in some cases, more attractive finish than modern alternatives.

Have you recently uncovered some Minton tiling in your home? Why not ask a professional to pop over and take a look?

In some cases we’ve found carpets or tiling glued down to the surface of Victorian floors. Attempts to remove these without the right tools and chemicals can damage the surface of the Minton tiles beyond repair. Colours fade over time and Minton tiles are often very old, so finding replacement tiles that properly match the existing Minton pieces can be a bit of a challenge.
Once Minton tiles have been fully uncovered, we have a wealth of equipment and modern chemicals to use in order to cut through the years of grot and accumulated dust on the surface of the tiles. Using only the most appropriate solutions, we do this without damage to the tiles themselves. When all dust and debris has been removed we would advise applying a water resistant sealant to the tile. We carefully choose the most appropriate sealant for your Minton tiles, bringing out the colour of the original tiling as much as possible whilst establishing long-lasting protection. A proper seal is a great value solution because it resists spillages and stains whilst maintaining a freshly cleaned look for months afterwards. Once restored, the only maintenance required is occasional dusting and hoovering, maybe a top up of sealer once a year or so. The rest of the time you can put your feet up and enjoy the beautiful patterns that were once buried!

Will restoring my Minton tiling cause disruption?

Our Minton tile restoration service is always carried out with the minimum possible disruption to you and your environment. You can rest assured that no loud or dangerous machinery will be used. What’s more, we wont use any dangerous and toxic cleaning chemical and always work to the highest standards of health and safety. Generally, Minton tiling can be restored in a matter of hours, rather than days.

Yes we can, securing loose tiles is a simple job for a professional and we’d be happy to help


We stock a range of advanced sealers that are designed to protect from everyday wear and tear such as spillages and allow for damp mopping of paw prints or claw marks. Eventually the sealer will break down and need to be reapplied, but it should provide a high level of protection for at least 12 months or so.


The only way to know for sure is to take up a small part of the floor in an inconspicuous area. If you don’t feel confident in doing this we suggest you get help from an experienced pro.


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.

Marble Floor Cleaning & Restoration

Marble Floor Cleaning & Restoration

Marble is a ‘relative’ of limestone, having been derived from the same basic material that has been reshaped under extreme heat and pressure in the earth’s crust. Available in many colours, marble is used by people around the world due to its smooth, elegant appearance and long lasting beauty.

Marble surfaces can create a fantastic effect in many different environments and should be carefully maintained, not only for posterity, but to ensure that they continue to have such a stunning effect. Our service can carry out a range of work, depending on your specific needs, as natural variation in the formation and use of marble can require very different types of care.

A range of finishes for marble floors

We can help you achieve a range of finishes so that your marble generates the right impact for your use. Honed marble has a satin smooth surface with little light reflection, whereas a polished finish is glossy and reflects light. This in turn dramatically emphasises the colours and markings on the marble. Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire can help you with a one off cleaning and restoration job, or work with you on a long term maintenance plan, ensuring your marble will last for many years to come.

Marble is still slightly porous and thus can suffer from staining. It is a stunning natural rock but can be easily etched by acids due to its alkali composition. Spills of common liquids like fruit juices, carbonated drinks or other acidic substances can cause lasting damage. Applying the correct sealant and replacing this sealant before it is eventually worn away is essential for making sure that the stone itself does not come to harm. While a marble floor can become dull over time, this is often simply due to microscopic scratches on the surface. Our service can polish your floor tile back up to a smooth sheen, restoring a stunning finish.

  • Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire 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 safe, simple and carried out according to your specific needs.

Tiled Floor Cleaning & Restoration

Tiled Floor Cleaning and Restoration Services

Our most popular service is the cleaning, sealing and restoration of all types of tiled floor. This includes natural stone tiles such as marble, granite and limestone as well as man made tiles such as ceramic, quarry and porcelain.

You can find extensive information about different floor types on our website, as they all have their nuances. It’s important to know what type of tile or stone floor you have in order to use the right cleaning solutions so you can avoid damaging anything in the process. Even floors of the same type can require different care depending on the specific instance of the material, its use and condition. You can be confident that Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire will analyse the floor type that you have before we decide as to the appropriate solutions that should be used.

How we care for your tiled floor

After we’ve chosen the best possible cleaning products for your flooring, we can begin applying them. Once applied to the floor, they are then worked into the floor’s surface with our rotary cleaners. The solution is then left to dwell for a brief period of time. Once the dwell time has been satisfactorily reached, the floor is then washed with our powerful fresh water extractor system to ensure that remnants of sealant, dirt, debris and other contaminants are removed from the surface. The surface is then washed a number of times to ensure that the floor is completely neutralised and free of contaminants and particles. Once the floor is dry, the sealers that are most appropriate for your floor and needs are carefully applied. The sealers we use can achieve a range of finishes and provide long lasting protection, from impregnating sealers which will not affect the look of the tile or stone, to matt, satin or high solid gloss finishes. Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire will give you 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 your tile or stone floor’s life are available on request. Please get in touch and speak to an experienced technician today to discover how we can restore your floor.

Most commonly we encounter dust, dirt and grit being trodden into the floor and leaving marks. Regular, careful dusting and vacuum cleaning helps counteract this, but it’s near impossible to prevent it completely. Highly polished floors tend to show wear soonest, minute scratches in the surface dull the effect.

When dealing with more porous type of rock, or in cases where the sealant has completely worn away, we often encounter damage from water and other liquids. Acidity commonly found in food and drinks can leave long lasting stains on certain types of stone and the use of incorrect cleaning products and solutions can cause irreparable damage.

All tiled floors tend to rely on grout to secure the tiles. Grout is softer than tile so is often more vulnerable than the tiles themselves. Being slightly recessed, the grout can trap dirt and its porous surface can become stained and discoloured.



How we maintain natural stone floors

The exact process we use will always vary according to the type of stone, the condition of the floor and the finish that you would like to achieve. Here is an example of our workflow:

  1. Tile and Stone Medic will examine the floor type that you have in order to decide the appropriate solutions to be used.
  2. The solution is applied and left to dwell for a short period of time.
  3. The cleaning solutions are worked into the surface of the floor using rotary cleaners.
  4. Once the dwell time has been reached, the floor is then washed using powerful fresh water extractor systems. This ensures all old sealers, dirt and other contaminants are removed from the stone’s surface.
  5. The surface is washed several times to neutralise the floor and free it of any soiling.
  6. Once the floor is dry, the chosen sealers are applied. The sealers range from impregnating sealers which will not affect the look of the tile or stone, to matt, satin or high sheen glossy finishes.

Tile and Stone Medic are happy to advise you on the most appropriate sealer to use for maximum improvement to your tile or stone floor. Advice on cost effective maintenance and safe products to enhance and maximise your tile or stone floor’s life is also available.


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.

  • Professional bathroom cleaning services

    Deep cleaning using commercial quality equipment and specialist cleaning chemicals


Shower areas, bathrooms and wet rooms endure more dramatic changes in heat and humidity level to kitchens and other areas of the home. These atmospheric changes mean that, if left unchecked, mould and other contaminants can easily thrive. Even simple bathroom soaps and shower gels will eventually work their way into the surface of grouting and tiles. These detergents often build up unnoticed before eventually discolouring grouting and tiling. At this point they’re often too stubborn to remove with off the shelf household cleaning products.

Whilst different types of tile and natural stone require vastly different skills and techniques to restore and maintain, you can rest assured that our work is back by years of hands on experience working with almost all different hard floor materials put to use in the home. You can expect top quality results every time, because we arrive with a full knowledge of best practice for every kind of material we work with.

Advantages of our services

Off the shelf household chemicals can be dangerous and often make little impact on a well worn bathroom. Using our industrial grade solutions we are able to easily deal with common bath and shower room issues and achieve results which are beyond what our many happy customers had assumed was possible. What’s more, we use only the best and most advanced equipment to apply these solutions. Not only do we know the best solutions to use, we understand the best way to use them.

One of the unique services we offer at Tile & Stone Medic Worcestershire is our grouting repairs service for bathrooms. We are able to offer grouting in over 20 different colours, so you can fine tune the appearance of your bath or shower room to be exactly as you’d like. If you’d prefer a more traditional colour, no problem, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that any and all grouting work we perform will be of the highest standards and will leave your home looking stunning.

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.


Whilst we’re carrying out your bathroom cleaning it’s important to avoid steam, water and dirt in order to get the best results. That said, we’ll always try to work around you where possible so don’t be afraid to ask our staff if you need access to the room during the clean.
