We know to treat every natural floor surface different to each other. We would not treat your marble floor the same as we would a slate floor, neither would we use the same process on granite floor as we would a limestone floor.

All these natural stone types have their very own characteristics and need to be treated with respect when being either restored or cleaned and sealed.

Granite floors are transformed from the hardest of stone, this igneous rock is the result of magma crystallizing below the earth’s surface. This molten rock cools and solidifies trapping precious minerals within and is an unbelievably dense stone. Cleaning and restoring granite is best left to experts, although very dense it can still succumb to etching and staining. These marks can make your granite floor look unsightly and aged, but don’t despair as we can repair these areas and also repair chips and scratches that have appeared on the surface.

Marble or marble floors is metamorphosed limestone rock that is composed of calcite, it is formed when limestone is exposed to very high temperatures and pressures. The calcite recrystalises forming a denser rock. This rock looks amazing on our floors but needs to be protected and maintained correctly otherwise it can look old and worn in no time at all. Marble is softer than granite and can scratch quite easily, stains are a problem with marble, they can discolour the surface. Acids and alkaline can also damage a marble floor. Concreative floors know how to rectify problems with marble floors, so if you have a problem with your marble floor then let us know.

Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed from calcite and aragonite plus fragments of marine organisms like forams, molluscs and coral, which forms in clear, shallow warm waters. Limestone and limestone floor’s are fairly soft and can scratch easily, it is very porous and it can be etched by acidic substances such as fruit juice and soft drinks. We are here to help you keep your limestone floor in tiptop condition, so just contact us to see what we can do for you.

Travertine is from the limestone family deposited from hot mineral springs or limestone caves. It is formed by process of rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate minerals found in the ground and surface waters. Organisms like algae, macrophytes and bryophytes colonise on the surface of travertine giving it distinctive porosity. With their distinctive surface pits and holes, which are caused by carbon dioxide evasion travertine is easily identified and makes for a great surface in any environment. But travertine is known for etching and can leave unsightly marks if spills from acidic substances like fruit juices and toiletry products are not blotted up immediately. We are here to help you get the most out of your travertine floor, so if you have any questions then get in contact with concreative floors.

Sandstone is a clastic sedimentary rock made of a mixture of mineral, rock and organic material of sand sized grains, which contain a cement material that binds everything together. It is formed from beds of sands laid down under the sea or low, lying areas on the continent. Sandstone rock is widely used in construction. Discolouration of sandstone surfaces has become an issue with buildings all over the world. Particle soiling, biological soiling and general staining are common on any exposed sandstone floor, with this in mind care and maintenance of sandstone floors is a must if you want your sandstone floor to last a long time. It is very porous so make sure spills are wiped up immediately and that it has adequate sealer protection on the surface.

Slate is a metamorphic rock derived from the metamorphism of mudstone or shale. It is produced when tectonic plates collide causing immense pressure. Slate can be found where the continent crusts fold and is compacted by the collision of two continental plates. Slate is widely used for roof tiles and flooring. Slate is a great floor surface that looks stunning in any environment, but slate floors require regular and annual maintenance to avoid unsightly dirt and grime build up, plus scratching of the surface is easy to do. The grouted areas of a slate floor is very porous and will easily absorb spills and if left neglected will cause staining. Our slate floor cleaning service can help you eradicate these problems and with regular maintenance your floor will look stunning always.
