Hello everyone, hope you're all safe and sound.
I don't really do cleaning and sealing without resurfacing but I have a large job coming up and have a few questions.
The floor consists of approximately 3500 sq ft of Eramosa limestone. The hotel owner is requesting to have it cleaned and sealed...
Removing wax from grout can be a pain too. You will have to diamond grind with tons and tons of stripper. Being that it's been the stone had probably cracked and chipped in areas.
This sounds like a $10,000+ job.
Don't bit off more than you can chew.
I have a heritage house that a client of mine would like cleaned. It was in a fire so there is some soot damage.
I focus on stone restoration but this is a good client of mine so I would like to do the job. I have a 3500 4gpm belt drive landa pw.
What products do you recommend and what about...
We usually do small residential job or commercial, nothing ever close to this size. 6700 square feet of limestone at the Mandarin head office and flagship banquet hall.
I've attached some pictures. Various cracks some hairline, others a bit larger. Traffic areas will need a grind. At least...
Anyone use these types of pads? I got the Clarke square oscillator.
Here's one made of astroturf
Here's another one
I hear you can apply color clad with a white pad and orbital with a light rinse with an extractor. The seal only bonds to the grout and will come off the tile easily. Anyone try this method? It would be great for a large area.
A sold house!!
Potential buyers will notice the floor or surface being destroyed and may not know it can be restored. Walking into a home and thinking you got to replace the floor deter potential buyers.
