Limestone Floors

Limestone flooring Cleaning and Restoration Northern Ireland

Limestone is a sedimentary rock which is formed at the bottom of the ocean. It consists wholly or mainly of calcium carbonate. Limestone has become a favourite for architectural suppliers and interior designers alike as an alternate to wood or resilient floors. Professional regular maintenance will be required to maintain its polished appearance. We recommend a low/medium honed finished as opposed to a high shine finish. When restoration is necessary we use a diamond grinding technique which will restore its natural beauty and diverse range of colour. We carry out limestone floor cleaning and restoration throughout both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

See below for examples of our work to restore a limestone floor.

Limestone restoration honed finish . After initial inspection it was agreed that we would grind off the top layer of the floor to expose new stone underneath. in-turn this would also flatten out the floor and leave the grout joints level with the finished stone surface. As this limestone floor was quite porous and soft a densifier was applied during the honing process. This will harden the top surface of the limestone making it more water repellent and easier to clean in the future. Once the honing process was completed and the desired finish is achieved we then applied a further water base sealer. this will ensure many years off use and an easier maintience programe.
