Limestone floors can look stunning, and give any home its own impressive character wherever they are laid. Some people are under the impression that their damaged limestone floor will have to be ripped up and replaced. This is seldom the case, as most natural stone floors in Manchester and Cheshire can often be seamlessly repaired. We see floor tiles that are chipped or cracked, and even movement of grout which can cause problems. These issues won’t sort themselves out and will only get worse, so it’s time to get the experts in.

Loose grout can be caused by either sub floor movement or inadequate adhesive application on installation. Once the reason has been identified, the problem can be specifically remedied. If stone tiles have not been sealed or the seal has worn away, they can appear dull and dirty. Cleaning doesn’t seem to help this situation, so initial sealing is extremely important. Spills on unprotected stone floors can become permanent and require specialist removal.

Using harsh chemicals to clean limestone tiles is a big mistake too, resulting in a surface with an etched and scratched effect. Normal strong household cleaners will burn limestone, marble or other stone floors giving an unattractive look. PH neutral soap and water are the best products to use, and provide a gentle cleaning action. Proper maintenance and repair carried out by skilled experts will ensure your limestone floors look as good as new.
