Limestone Cleaning / Polishing – Newcastle Upon Tyne

Today we restored some beautiful limestone tiles in a flat three floors up and of course, there was no lift.

The floor was years old and was covered in inappropriate sealer which overtime warn off leaving the stone unprotected.

Removing Topical Sealer

Firstly we had to remove the old sealer by hand using a high powered stripper, the stripper does not damage the stone in any way only removes the old sealers.

Removing Sealer

After the old sealer has been removed we then started the honing process using diamond pads, this will remove most surface scratches.


To remove the deep scratches used a handheld orbital machine with specialist disks.

After we have removed the deep scratches as much as we can, we then blend the areas in by polishing the stone back up. Sealing the stone with an impregnator to finish.

Sealed Finished Floor

Now the stone has been restored it will look great for years to come when maintained correctly.

Our customer said ‘I am so pleased with the floor, it looks better than it did when it was first laid’

Customer Reviews

“Great friendly service and excellent communication throughout. Would use this service again and recommend to friends and family.”

Jayne Jackson

“I had 2 sofa frames and 2 rugs cleaned by Paul Dyson. I could not fault the service and the results. Very courteous, professional and friendly. I also had a couple of stains on another carpet that they offered to do a spot clean at no extra charge. I will definitely use Paul Dyson again, and cannot recommend them highly enough.”

"Absolutely brilliant service. Pauls son Harry came this morning and throughly cleaned the carpets for me at a rental property in Gateshead. The previous tenant had allowed her cat to soil the carpet do a disgusting level. We have cleaned the house and the final job of cleaning and treating the carpets was down to Harry........all smells are now eradicated and a certificated treatment added to ensure the safety of future tenants.......can't recommend this company higher."
