Hard Floor Restoration South West | Essential Floor Care
There are many types of hard floors, such as all different types of wood and stone. These hard floors must be treated with with slightly different techniques to just say carpets, due to the nature of the materials used.
People's first assumption is that hard floors need little care or ongoing maintenance, this is not the case. In fact, hard flooring needs even more care and attention because unlike carpets or soft floor surfaces, it doesn't collect dust and dirt. As a result, the dust and dirt will sit on top of the hard floor, causing damage due to friction of people's movement on it (e.g. walking on the dirt and dust).
Vacuuming, mopping and undergoing hard floor restoration treatments become more necessary to maintain a high standard and quality.
If a particular floor type has been poorly maintained, it could require various methods of hard floor restoration services, this can involve techniques such as abrasive or diamond impregnated pads to remove the top layer of dirt and dust from the surface, before re-finishing it with the appropriate type of coating or finish.
Resilient flooring such as Vinyl, Linoleum, Cork or Rubber, will benefit from periodic stripping and resealing, if after market or factory finishes have been applied to the flooring. This service is mainly carried out in high traffic environments, to help limit structural wear and damage to the floors surface. Sealing your floors will not only help protect from damage and discolouration and staining, but will also improve the ease of which the floor can be kept clean.
With the use of quality water based epoxy and polyurethane sealers, we can extend the life of your floor, reducing marks, scratches and guard against soil penetration and abrasion.
There are several types of stone floor covering on the market today today, such as granite, marble, limestone, travertine and slate. There are also many different styles of ceramic and porcelain flooring that mimic a natural stone look. Natural stone, ceramic and porcelain tiles can have a large impact on the aesthetics of any space, if kept clean and looking at its very best. Essential Floor Care can achieve this through several methods, such as diamond grinding, hoovering, polishing and deep cleaning. In most cases, stone is porous to some degree and it's necessary to seal with impregnating, enhancing or topical stone seals, to protect from staining and help with day to day maintenance.
It is very important that you are aware of your floor type before asking for or applying any specific action to be taking place. Using a product or service type to clean your hard floor without professional advice can be more costly than it's worth. Over the years we have seen people try and do it themselves, only to later realise they have used the wrong product and damaged their flooring.
