There are many stone floors in Edinburgh and the Lothian’s that need professional and expert care to maintain them at their best. Many examples of Victorian tile entrance halls can be seen around town looking much the worse for wear. This neglect can be remedied with the correct knowledge, experience, equipment and most importantly, the correct solutions.
Stone (and grout) cleaning generally requires the use of chemicals. Often, the wrong chemicals are used and this has the effect of making the stone look worse than at the beginning. Those involved in Stone Floor Restoration, therefore, need to know how certain chemicals react with certain stones. This can be illustrated when acid is poured on Marble which is made up of Calcium Carbonate. The acid will bubble and fizz and produces a dull etch mark . The acid broke the bond between the Calcium and the carbonate and produced Calcium Chloride and Carbon Dioxide. I mention this as you should always employ the services of a properly and fully trained professional or you can risk damage to your stone floor.
Stone floors, table tops or any other stone surface can suffer from stains. The rule of thumb here is that the longer the stain is allowed to remain, the deeper it will penetrate into the stone and the harder it is to remove. As with carpets, some stains are harder to remove than others and some may be impossible to remove.
