Floor Restoration

Stone Floors

Stone cleaning and restoration can restore a floor to its original condition, producing a beautiful finish and extending its life span. SEE Services knowledgeable team of professionals deal with the restoration and conservation of stone floors in homes, offices, prestigious buildings and historical properties, using the most appropriate techniques for each individual situation. We have experience of maintaining and restoring stone floors in some of the most prestigious buildings in the UK.

Regardless of the type of stone at some point a deep clean and restoration is likely to be required. Natural elements, wear and tear, improper cleaning and spillages will deteriorate the appearance and structure of a floor, and over time natural stone such as marble, granite and slate is likely to sustain some form of damage. SEE Services understands that architects, homeowners and business owners alike want to care for and maintain floors and our specialist technicians will work with you to identify the type of floor, the issues, and the most appropriate techniques, equipment and products to use.

We use a number of techniques to maintain and restore stone floors, bringing out the beauty of the stone and making it look like new.

  • GRINDING: Carried out to remove deep scratches and remove uneven tile edges. It is done by machine with diamond abrasive pads and water, so that no dust is created.

  • HONING: Removes minor scratches and wear and tear from everyday foot traffic. It is also carried out by machine in a similar way to grinding.

  • POLISHING: Gives marble or stone a shine, enhancing the veining in marble and protecting the marble or stone from everyday traffic and spills.

  • CLEANING: Removes dirt, stains and bacteria, as well as cleaning waxes and polymers that have become embedded.

  • SEALING: Protects and preserves natural stone.

  • COLOUR ENHANCING: Penetrating sealers enhance the colour of the stone.

  • STRIPPING: Removes coatings, such as waxes and polyurethane, which inhibit the stone’s ability to breathe and cause spalling.

Granite is a very hard wearing stone and provides a luxury, high quality appearance in building reception areas and lift lobbies. Its porous nature means that it will stain over time, so regular maintenance is important to keep it in top condition.

Marble is a durable and aesthetically pleasing substrate, which also provides a luxury, high-end appearance in buildings. Regular professional maintenance will ensure that the high quality finish is retained for many years.

Concrete Floors

SEE Services provides professional cleaning and maintenance services to maintain your concrete floor to the highest standards.

Concrete floors have long been renowned for their hardness and durability and polishing makes them aesthetically pleasing, resistant to stains and easier to maintain. In addition, polished concrete’s relatively high coefficient of friction makes it slip resistant, and the highly reflective finish reduces lighting needs and improves natural light penetration. Most modern buildings are constructed with concrete floors, so polishing the exposed concrete removes the need to add a floor covering, and a polished finish is increasingly being used in retail, offices and warehousing. The concrete is treated and then surface ground using progressively finer grinding tools, such as diamond grinding wheels and polishing pads.

It is possible to maintain a polished concrete floor yourself by regular sweeping and dusting to remove any dirt and grit brought inside, followed by a damp mop with a neutral cleaner (acidic cleaners can attack the floors' surface) to enhance the shine. However, there will often come a point where the floor looks dull, especially in high traffic areas, and an expert is needed to restore the floor’s look. At SEE Services we are experts in restoring concrete floors which are dull, discoloured or have a damaged surface, using techniques ranging from a deep clean right through to a surface skim and regrind.

Terrazzo Floors

Terrazzo is a composite material which consists of marble, quartz, granite, glass or other suitable chips, together with a binder that is cementitious, chemical or a combination of both. Terrazzo is cured, ground and polished to a smooth surface or otherwise finished to produce a uniformly textured surface.

The maintenance of a terrazzo floor requires professional technicians and special procedures. Floors may become discoloured or have a damaged surface because of dirt tracked into the floor or a build-up of coatings or cleaning chemicals.

Our Soft Services division carries out several types of terrazzo floor restoration including:

  • Preventative and routine maintenance, including regular cleaning and sealing of floors.

  • Repairing damage to the surface caused by a build-up of cleaning chemicals or dirt.

  • Regrinding terrazzo floors if damage is so severe that normal stripping and cleaning cannot restore the surface.

  • Repairing minor chips and cracks.
