Victorian Minton Floor Cleaning Hinckley Leicestershire

Here we have a Victorian floor in Hinckley Leicestershire that has recently been cleaned and restored by a ‘Restoration Specialist’ from the Leicestershire area. As you can see their results are far from professional or worthy of the specialist tag, mind they seem to be professionals at everything from carpets to wood flooring; is that possible?



The problems with this floor started very soon after completion of the work, when the customer used a Cif floor cleaner only to find that the polish simply washed away; not what you would expect from a professional job. The floor wasn’t even fully cleaned and hardly touched close to the edges.

On contacting the proprietor of the cleaning company, our customer was told it was something she had done wrong and that the floor was okay when they left. They never even bothered to take a quick look, very poor customer service.

So what did they do wrong? Well, that’s very easy and obvious to the trained eye. Not only did they apply a cheap emulsion polish over the floor, they did so over a floor that was neither fully neutralised or even dry enough to polish. The operator was working on his own, so allowing far too much water to be absorbed back into the tiles in between stopping the scrubbing machine to use his wet vac (did he use one?). A very inefficient way of working not only because of the water absorption but also resulting in dirt and cleaner residue absorbed into the floor.

The end result was an emulsion polish that was being degraded by moisture almost as soon as it was applied. Much of this polish was easily removed by rubbing with finger tips, literally powdered up before our eyes.

I don’t think we need tell you the moral of the story here.
