Victorian Tile Floor Cleaning The Park Nottingham
A truly beautiful example of Victorian floor tiling in The Park, Nottingham. These Victorian tiles circa 1880 by Minton Hollins & Co are not only beautifully ornate but also incorporate a wonderful colour palette with rich browns, baby blue and a scattering of purple.
Beneath really thick layers of polish lay quite a few historical blemishes brought about by the sealing and cleaning procedures of the day. Including patches of high abrasion and bleaching of the clay with excessive dwelling of chemicals and of course staining from traditional organic sealers such as linseed oil.
After removing what contaminants we could from the floor, we resealed and applied out satin polish to draw out the colours and reduce daily maintenance.
