Beautiful Cotswold Home – Full deep-clean & seal of Wooden Floors, Limestone & Brick

Frogditch Farm

As professional floor cleaners, the Green Man team are fortunate to be invited into beautiful homes quite often, and this contemporary farmhouse is no exception. Crafted around an English oak timber frame, this property is designed to impress.

Our task was to specify a full deep-clean of the wide range of flooring types throughout the home, then seal them to improve their visual impact and durability.

Professional Wood Cleaning & Polishing

Wood should generally not be wet-cleaned at all. Water will gradually wear down varnishes & other finishes, and then open the grain of most types of woods. However, from time to time (or after building work), sweeping will not be enough.

When wood requires a deep-clean, we have created a way of delivering a very good level of cleanliness without over-wetting a wooden floor. This involves:

  • Gentle, but effective mechanical agitation using a rotary machine
  • Minimal application of a wood-specific cleaning solution
  • Immediate vacuum extraction of the slurry
  • Forced drying

Once the floor is dry, we can then apply a suitable polish to protect the wood and improve its appearance.

Professional Limestone Cleaning & Sealing

The limestone floors in this property consisted of black limestone installed in the large downstairs area & a lighter, more traditional limestone floor in the master en-suite bathroom. Both areas required a full deep-clean and manual scrubbing of the grout lines…

Professional Limestone Floor Sealing

The following day – once the stone & grout has completely dried – we returned to apply seals to the floor. The floor was sealed when it was installed (not that long ago), so our aim was to “top up” the pre-existing seal & add a topical seal to increase the reflectivity & surface protection of the tiles. Stone tiles should always be sealed with an impregnating seal, which is the first point of defence against spillages. After this has been carried out, it is then the aesthetic choice of the owner whether a higher gloss finish is desired.

In this case, a luxurious look was paramount, so our team applied two coats of a limestone floor gloss seal. We didn’t take many photos, but the one below gives an impression of the overall finish…
