The Floor Cleaning, Resurfacing and Restoring Experts
If you have a stone floor that has lost its lustre, is engrained with dirt or has suffered from neglect, then we can help. At Inside Out Cleaning & Restoration Ltd we specialise in the cleaning, resurfacing and restoring of any type of stone floor and are often able to return it to its ‘just fitted’ state. Whether your property is a private home, luxury hotel, commercial environment or listed building, we tailor a solution, based on years of experience.
Our expertise is not confined to stone floors, we are experienced restorers of high quality vinyl flooring, particularly Amtico and Karndean, regularly achieving staggering results.
As professional carpet cleaners, we have also invested in high-tech equipment and use only the highest quality cleaning products. Unlike many cheaper processes, which leave soil-attracting residues, our accredited care ensures that your newly-cleaned carpets stay clean for longer.
Cleaning and renovation of rugs is another specialism: we use dedicated products and cold cleaning techniques to maintain colour vibrancy and restore their lustre.
Upholstery cleaning– whether fabric or leather – will retain its attractive appearance for longer when cared for as part of a regular programme. Here too, our expert knowledge and technical experience will revive colour, texture and condition.
We recently carried out a project on a four storey Georgian property in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
In period houses the original staircases reflect the status of a building and its owner, and the detailing and complexity of the construction often changes as it ascends through the different levels. the grandest sections are usually in the entrances what visitors see first, very much the same as the architecture to the front of buildings as opposed to the rear.
The entrance, stairwells and landings had been looking a bit tired for a long while and was in much need of some real tender loving care.
We set to work firstly by removing all of the Paint what seemed like two hundred years worth, this was removed pretty much a layer by layer at a time with some intricate detailing around the balustrades.
Once the majority of the paint was removed we used stone chisels to remove more of the stubborn areas, most of the finishing detail was carried out with a vortex of water and fine granulates to gently abrade the surface and remove the dirt and deposits.
once all coverings were removed from the limestone floors, and staircases we deep cleaned with a high alkaline solution and then nuetralised with an acidic rinse.
It was all sealed and finished with 6 coats of a long lasting natural impregnator, to protect for many years of foot traffic.
I had great pleasure in restoring this beautiful Edwardian floor in Clifton, Bristol.
My initial visit to Clifton was to access the damage, we counted and measured all the broken tiles and calculated the cost of all reclaimed replacements from our supplier, we submitted our quote for a full deep clean, removal of all broken tiles, secure the sub level and replace the tiles, followed by a full deep clean. We firstly deep cleaned with a high Alkaline solution, agitated into the surface with a diamond impregnated rotary brush, this process removes all the deep embedded soils that have been built up over a 100 years and more. Its always important to neutralise the stone after cleaning, we use a high content of acidic raw material for the safe neutralisation of the quarry tiles. Now that the stone is clean & dry the damage can be removed, the tiles that are broken are usually very easy to remove as generally they are broken through voids between the tiles and the sub base, in most cases these can be sucked up with a vacuum so not to damage good surrounding tiles. Sometimes we need to repair large ares of floor screed so large sections of floor needs to be taken up to repair the base.
Once the base is intact, the headache begins, just as well i like jigsaw puzzles!!
We set all the tiles in an adhesive for secure and level fitting.
Once all the quarry stone tiles are in position and the floor is completely dry usually after 2-3 days we return to seal with 6 coats of natural breathable plant extract impregnating seal, this will intensify the colours and give a long lasting easy maintenance protection.IMG_0063
