LIMESTONE CLEANING AND RESTORATION
Limestone floor is actually quite porous and prone to scratching, staining and fracturing. It also needs to be allowed to breathe, instead of being covered by synthetic sealers or urethane. At Posh floors, we offer the right solution to protect your Limestone by using highly penetrating impregnators for lime stone cleaning which penetrates the surface of the stone but retains the natural colours of the stone.
The primary cause for polished stone floors becoming dull is walking on them. Prolonged foot traffic grinds and packs in dust, sand, and grit. Although the scratching that occurs is very fine, it eventually covers the majority of the surface and over time dulls the finish to the point where it loses its reflective properties. To make your stone surfaces smooth and reflective, we employ the use of dedicated grinders, which is the initial step in the process of limestone restoration.
Our Limestone restoration process consists of a multiple step mechanical process using diamond abrasive pads and water. Generally this is a three step process that starts with grinding the surface of the stone with a course grit abrasive pad. After grinding the stone the second step is to hone the surface of the stone with a finer grit abrasive pad. Honing makes the surface of the stone very smooth but results in very little shine. After honing, the final step in limestone cleaning is to polish the surface of the stone with fine diamond abrasive to achieve the desired finish.

With our special technique, we are able to carry out virtually invisible repairs.
The use of low quality maintenance polishes which contain high levels of wax results in a stone which becomes yellow over time. The use of procedures such as vitrification or polishing at this point will only serve to trap in the dirt resulting in a shiny but soiled yellow floor.
