Quarry Tiled Kicthen Floor, Dover
I was called to perform a survey at an old, thatched cottage in rural Dover.
The customer wanted me to quote for a deep clean and seal of her quarry-tiled kitchen floor.
The floor was in constant use and it had considerable levels of ingrained dirt, especially in the wide grout lines.
I completed my survey and discussed all options open to the customer and I agreed to put together a quote.
Once received and accepted, a date was set.
I turned up promptly on day 1 and started by protecting any areas susceptible to water damage.
Once done, I used a dilution of Pro Clean and manually scrubbed all the grout lines which came up really well.
Then it was time to turn my attention to the quarry tiles.
Using more diluted Pro Clean in conjunction with a coarse burnishing pad on my buffing machine and plenty of water, a dirty slurry was produced.
Vaxing this slurry up as I went along I then mopped the floor several times to get rid of the last vestiges. I then left for the day to allow the tiles to dry over the weekend.
Returning on Monday, and happy that the tiles were below the moisture parameters, I then started the first of 3 coats of Tile Doctor's Seal and Go Extra.
This is a topical, low sheen sealer with a colour intensifier.
Once completed, the floor looked amazing and the customer was very happy.
