Mark says “technology, equipment and products for restoring and maintaining hard surfaces have vastly improved over the last few years and the results that can now be achieved  for restoring floors can be quite staggering compared to a few years ago, we are always happy to give advice and free demonstrations where possible to show the results that can be achieved with our services.”

Why Survey

We include an pre-clean survey on all our jobs as standard. It is extremely important to do a survey and clean an area of the customers choice where possible for many reasons.

Firstly it is nice to know  for the customer who you are dealing with and for the contractor to find out the requirements of the customer and the goals that can be achieved.

The information learned from doing  a cleaning demonstration of a small area will give a good idea of what the finished floor or other surface will look like and help with the reasons listed below;

  • Define the type of the surface material by testing if it is Man-made or Natural Stone
  • Show unforeseen problems and difficulties
  • Help assess how long the job will take
  • When Diamond grinding deciding if a Honed or polished finish is preferred
  • Decide what equipment ,sealers , impregnators  and cleaning products to use
  • What furniture and items to be moved  and protective sheeting and coverings needed
  • More accurately price the job
  • If any problems finding the address, parking and water access. And of course if we need to bring a flask with us!

“Mark has brought my stone floor to life. He is professional and clean and tidy whilst he works which is quite a task when you cleaning such a big area! I was so pleased with the inside of the house that I got him to do the outside patio as well, It looks like new again! I highly recommend him and will be telling all my friends.”
