When it comes to stone floors, should you replace or renovate? Because natural stone looks great and can last a long time, today many business premises and residential homes feature tiled stone floors. These floors may have dealt with the footfall from a few years or even a few centuries. Over time marble, limestone, slate and other natural stone floor tiles can become dirty, damaged and look past their best. When the situation gets really bad, you might think the only answer is to take up the tiles and replace them with a new floor altogether. But before you replace your stone floor at great expense, consider whether a specialist in stone floor cleaning and renovation can rescue your existing floor.
Natural stone floors – problems that can be put right
If it’s possible to renovate a stone floor it will usually be a far more cost-effective solution than taking up the old floor and putting in a new one.
- Remove ingrained grime from stone tiles
- Smooth away lippage, where the stone floor tiles are uneven
- Clean or refinish grout for a professional look
- Neutralise algae or other outdoor hazards
- Polish scratches out of the surface
- Correct patches of discolouration
