Quarry Tile Restoration Duloe Cambridgeshire
Trapped beneath a carpet and underlay for many years these Victorian quarries tiles had experienced a large amount of rising damp that had failed to escape due to the carpet. The salt deposits which would normally have been brushed away, had as a result hardened and pitted the tile surface. Naturally it would prove impossible to remove all traces of efflorescence from these period tiles as the residue was so deep.
Our first task was to remove as much of the hardened salt without causing damage to the tiles, then to scrub away any oil sealants and allow the floor to breath. The largest majority of the floors problems have been caused by lack of breathability, so a highly breathable sealer was needed to ensure that the damp issues subsided over time.
The key point was to turn the floor into a robust and usable feature of the house which we achieved by deep cleaning and sealing the floor with the very finest of sealers, which protect the floor from water, oil and dirt and make for an easily maintained floor surface.
