Industrial and Commercial Safety Non Slip Floor Cleaning and Restoration.
Non-slip safety vinyl floor covering in Birmingham is used in a vast number of industrial and commercial premises due to it being hard-wearing and having a non-slip surface, and you will find this type of floor covering in Schools, Nurseries, Restaurants, Pubs, Toilets, Washrooms, Canteens, Shops, Nursing homes, shopping centres, Reception areas, Doctors surgeries, Dentists, Chemists, Night clubs and Factories. But because this type of flooring is semi porous it can be extremely hard work to keep the safety floor covering clean even with regular daily mopping. It is designed to “give” under pressure from the soles of a shoe, and can do this because it is porous. But this in time can become dirty as the pores fill up. But with our method and cleaning system we can remove all dirt, grease, soils, and detergent residues that have been left behind with daily use, and cleaning and general mopping.
We can re-polish the floors and take out the scratches and leave you with a matt or polished finish.
This is a common choice in kitchens but this type of flooring can be dulled and stained by food and drink spills.
Many properties have these floors down and owners are not sure what to do with them and are unaware that they can be re-polished at a fraction of the cost of laying a new floor.
It’s a very porous floor and can be stained by oils and grease which are absorbed into the stone. It is sensitive to acids and can be cleaned and sealed to add durability to the finish of the floor
This is a derivative of limestone and again is a soft stone that can be scratched.
It usually has distinct veining and again can be damaged by food and fizzy drink spills which is have weak acidic base but can “etch” the floor. Also incorrect cleaning products (such as certain bathroom cleaners) can mark the flooring. A neutral cleaner from a reputable cleaning supplier is a good option for keeping the floor in great condition.
Polishing powders are used to improve the appearance of these floors in need of corrective maintenance to bring them back to life.
Similar to Limestone but usually are white tan or cream in colour. They usually have tiny holes that are filled in at the factory with a resin bond. Sometimes the resin comes out and the floor can be repolished and the resin re-applied to the holes that have become visible.
A plain resin is typically used which will seal the hole and blend in with the rest of the floor colour.
This is most often cut at the quarry and usually comes in black, grey, or even green colours.
This floor needs protecting with a sealer. Sometimes we can use what is known as an impregnating sealer which is water based and is absorbed into the floor to bring out the natural beauty of the stone.
On this floor we can strip off the old sealants that may have broken down and then reseal your floor which will enhance the colours and protect your floor for many years to come.
This is a combination of different stone types that is mixed with cement or epoxy glue, laid on site then ground off using a grinding machine using diamonds as the to level the floor .
Sometimes they are available in tile form ready ground. Again they can be damaged by acidic spills but the use of polishing powders and sealers can restore the floor to a beautiful durable shine.
Stone Floor Cleaning Before & After
The Cleaning Process
All we ask is that you clear the room for us as we need access to the floor. We vacuum the floor to remove any loose dirt and particles before we start. We protect the skirting boards, kitchen units and wall coverings using a combination of silicone and waterproof plastic protectors for the walls and units to prevent water damage.
We use a heavy rotary cleaning machine with our unique stone cleaning solution to remove the grease and grime and use a powerful vacuum machine to remove the contaminants from your floor.
We then use polishing and restoring powders with our rotary machine which gently removes the scratches, scuffs and acidic damage that may have previously occurred on the floor.
After applying a final polishing powder we can then finish your floor to a satin or polished look. Just be aware that many of our customers opt for a satin look as it has better slip resistance, and because a polished look requires more maintenance cleaning and buffing to keep it shining bright.
Finally we put on a protective colour enhancing impregnator to protect the floor from any spillages from acids or oily substances, like fizzy drinks or grease.
Stone Floor Cleaning FAQs
Just that we actually enjoy our job and we are just an honest family run father and son business. We try and be fair and honest, in not only the way we work, but also we rely on you being pleased with what we do. That way you tell your friends and colleagues, and that in turn gives us pride in the fact that we are recommended to somebody else.
Most of the times we can only give an estimated time on job completion, it all depends on how easy it is to access, setting up our equipment, how much furniture is in the property, how much cleaning work there is to do. We want to cause you the minimum of disruption but also want to clean to our high standards, but the machine we use can clean cruise ships where the cleaning standard has to be first class but in a relatively short space of time.
Yes, we are fully insured, we have £5 million public liability and risk treatment insurance in place because, with certain commercial work and contract work, that is what is now required. This covers all of your furniture and belongings and also the items we are cleaning at the time just in case we have any accidents. And for your peace of mind, if you would like us to bring our insurance details with us to show you on the day you require the work to be carried out, then we would only be too happy to do so. In addition, we are also DBS checked for your peace of mind as we clean a lot of schools.
When a customer calls and asks for a quotation over the phone, we can only give an estimated cost over the phone on the information that you have given us. If you preferred a home survey and quotation, we can arrange this only when we have time and are passing. We are out carpet cleaning in Birmingham and also other surrounding towns and cities seven days a week and carry out between 2 and 4 jobs a day, so sometimes a personal visit can be hard to do. However, rest assured we have been working in the carpet and upholstery cleaning industry for many years and the estimated cost we give to customers are usually spot on. You can always send us a picture on WhatsApp if that helps. Without wanting to seem arrogant with our truck mounted machine, we know that if it won’t come clean with us, it won’t come clean with anyone else.
When we arrive and walk through the job with you, we always ask, are there any particular spots or stains that annoy you and do you know what was spilt at the time. If someone has spilt tea or coffee or any other type of drink or food, which has dye content, in most cases the stain may not be removed, but sometimes the stain can lighten, so we can never give a 100% guarantee to any customer, but your carpet and upholstery will be clean.
We also have advanced stain treatment procedures that we can use for urine, and turmeric, and we can always advise if this may be an extra treatment you would like to consider.
