Cleaning Quarry Tiles Durham City

By On October 12, 2015 No Comments

Quarry tiles are a well-known and popular tile choice; they are a very durable natural stone. In times gone by they have been used in many industrial settings but their use has also been widespread within homes around the UK.

This strength means that this tile type will be resistant to scratching and general wear.

One of the most fascinating elements of stone restoration is the fact that tiled floors can be hidden under other floor coverings for many years and when uncovered can be restored to a brilliant finish.

Our client was contemplating refurbishment and had lifted an old carpet to reveal what looked like it may be an interesting old quarry tiled floor.

We started to strip back all of the carpet glue and other coverings that were hiding the beautiful tiles. Once fully stripped we started to install protection seals.

Our client was delighted with the result and asked us to look at another three floors which needed restoration.

To restore a stone floor that clearly has such an exceptional history is extremely rewarding; it is respectful to the buildings heritage and offers an attractive and classic floor that will remain looking great for many more years to come.
