When it comes to natural stone care in the UK, limestone can be one of the toughest to clean and maintain. Limestone is a soft sedimentary rock composed in parts of calcium carbonate in one of two forms; calcite or aragonite. It is a highly porous stone and readily absorbs stains and environmental damage from sulphur dioxide present in the air. The soft structure of limestone in comparison to marble, granite and terrazzo, makes it particularly  prone to surface scratches, impact marks from items being dropped on it, footfall and frost damage to name a few. This can lead to cracking and fracturing in some of the worst cases. 

The simple act of walking on Limestone can cause hundreds of minute surfaces scratches i.e. from dirt and grit particles carried on shoes, while these are not individually apparent to the naked eye they can have a collective effect of dulling the lustre of the Limestone. Added to this opening of the pores of the stone  is the increased potential for deep staining. 

Cleaning your Limestone and regular maintenance is essential for keeping your stone in tip top condition, delaying the need for complete restoration. Scratched, stained, grouting or adhesive marked Limestone tiles are a few of the most common problems associated with Limestone Cleaning. Floormaster have extensive experience in the sensitive approach and techniques needed for cleaning, restoring and maintaining your Limestone floor. Ensuring that you can enjoy your beautiful stone floor surfaces for many years to come.

Travertine, the Stone

Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs. Travertine often has a fibrous or concentric appearance and exists in white, tan, and cream-colored varieties. It is formed by a process of rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate, often at the mouth of a hot spring or in a limestone cave. In the latter, it can form stalactites, stalagmites
Travertine floor tile cleaning, restoration, sealing and maintenance
Considered by many to be one of the most popular stones, Travertine greatly enhances the look of hotel and commercial receptions areas, exquisite bathrooms and elegant floors. Travertine can be easily stained and therefore requires regular, professional care and maintenance. Floormaster can clean and polish Travertine with absolutely stunning results.

We have undertaken many Travertine floor cleaning projects in North Yorkshire including kitchens, bathrooms and hallways with superb results!

Travertine Polishing

Travertine is porous. If it has not been installed or sealed properly it will quickly discolour and be very hard to maintain. However, Cotswold Stone Floor Cleaners use specific processes to return your natural Travertine stone to its former glory. We can polish naturally Travertine from Honed to polished and polished back to honed, removing limescale and etching marks. It is always recommended to seal the floor tiles to give you the first line of defence against soils and spills.
