Brilliant results on Travertine tiles & flagstone floors in Cheltenham

Professional hard floor & carpet cleaning 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.
