Natural stone makes wonderful flooring: attractive yet tough and robust, a natural stone floor is an effective way to add a stunning feature to your house or business. Even though stone is incredibly robust, it does, however, require professional care and attention to make sure that it keeps its good looks. As experts in the routine maintenance and cleaning of natural stone floors, at A1 Professional Cleaning we can thoroughly clean or reinstate your stone floor so that is looks stunning and is protected from stains and dirt.
Whilst natural stone floors are usually very resilient, the surface can tend to be quite porous and to safeguard the surface from discoloration, the floor should be periodically re-sealed. The majority of forms of natural stone flooring have to be re-sealed every couple of years. The frequency of re-sealing is determined by the type of stone flooring: marble only generally only needs to be sealed when just installed, whilst granite should be re-sealed every couple of years. It’s important to remember that re-sealing offers two benefits: the floor is safeguarded from unattractive stains and the natural beauty of the stone is enhanced. At A1 Professional Cleaning we’re experts in natural stone care Ilkley wide and our team will be very happy to give more guidance on sealing and protecting your stone floor.
