Our knowledge of cleaning and sealants is reinforced by close partnerships with manufacturers of those products.
We can clean and seal/strip and reseal existing floors that need attention for a number of reasons; The floor has been 'lived' with and conventional cleaners are not getting it clean, carpets are removed and a wonderful floor is revealed, but it is marked and filthy, stubborn marks and stains have become a nuisance, incorrect sealants or cleaner have been used, or simply attempts at cleaning a floor have resulted in adverse consequences!
We can put a variety of finishes on to an existing floor such as matt, satin or gloss. The types of finish will also depend on the type of floor that it is, and the sealant used. Please note that a high shine cannot be achieved on floor that has no damp course.
