Brilliant results on Travertine tiles & flagstone floors in Cheltenham

Both travertine & standard limestone floor tiles lend a light, natural atmosphere to a room. These types of stone are often formed with a textured face which can accumulate soils over time. Which is where Green Man comes in, we can provide a modern, deep cleaning process that has the power to penetrate & remove stains on naturally finished stone such at Travertine.

Following on from a survey that we had carried out previously for this customer, two of our technicians called back this week to carry out the cleaning. The customer has travertine tiles in their kitchen/diner as well as the utility room & toilet. As these are areas of heavy footfall, you can see from this photo that they were looking dull & lifeless.

The first step in the cleaning process is to prepare the floor which means manually sweeping & vacuuming the floor to pick up as much surface debris as possible. Then we apply an environmentally friendly stone cleaning solution to the travertine floor & use the rotary machine to agitate the floor. This gently cleans the floor whilst applying some pressure to any stubborn staining.

A wet vac is then used to pick up the resulting slurry. This part of the process is often repeated to ensure the maximum amount of soiling is removed.

Once this has been completed, it is time for our technicians to get on their hands & knees and manually clean the grout using a grout brush.

Once the tiles & grout have been cleaned, the floor needs to dry before we can apply any seal. We will often suggest applying a seal to travertine floors as this will protect the stone from both water & oil based stains whilst keeping the natural looking finish. On this occasion, our technicians applied two coats of Ecoprotec impregnating seal.

Great results on commercial carpets & hard flooring at Sherborne Girls School

We are always pleased to hear from local businesses & educational settings looking to have commercial cleaning carried out & this was certainly the case when we were contacted by Sherborne Girls School who were enquiring about carpet & hard floor cleaning. With an enquiry such as this, we recommend arranging an initial survey so that we can determine the condition & specific requirements of the flooring. This enables up to put a comprehensive cleaning plan in place & supply you with a quotation.

Following on from our initial survey, we then scheduled the cleaning for various points throughout the year when the school would be unoccupied.

We sent a teams of 2 technicians to the school on various days spanning a few months to carry out a large amount of carpet cleaning as well as some hard floor cleaning.

All of the carpets we cleaned were deep cleaned using our traditional rinse extraction cleaning method. This starts with a thorough vacuum to remove as much as the surface debris as possible. Then we treat any stains as necessary before applying an eco-sanitising pre-spray which is given time to dwell to ensure it breaks down as much soiling/staining as possible.

The next step is to use the rotary machine to work in the hot water & cleaning products to really give the carpets an in-depth clean.

Then it was time for the rinse extraction of the carpets. This is where all the remaining soiling, water & cleaning products are removed. This leaves the carpets cleaner, sanitised & looking much fresher.

As well as the carpet cleaning, we also cleaned, polished & buffed some hard flooring in the school studio, however we were so busy that we forgot to take any photos, so you will just have to take our word for it! Needless to say, the school administration team were very happy with the work we carried out & we look forward to going back in the future for a refresh.
