This Edinburgh client of ours made the mistake of buying a cheap black rubber mat to sit inside her back door. However, after only six months the mat had stained the floor leaving a dark grey imprint that could not be removed by cleaning. Citrus™ came to lady’s rescue by stripping and sealing the floor and restoring it to its former glory. Check out the before and after photos!
Wood Floor Sanded, Filled, Primed, Lacquered in Crieff
There was a 1cm wide minor gap on two boards that needed repairing, that historically had been left there by the owner to accumulate dirt and dust. Rather than fill the gap with dust and filler or replace the two boards, the compromise was to do a repair by cutting matching wood to size and glueing it in place. This junker style floor was badly worn and looking sorry for itself. We came in and sanded the floor back making the necessary repairs and filled the floor accordingly. Going through the grits from 40, 60, 80, 100 finishing at 120, we levelled and smoothed the floor taking out all scratches and imperfections. The floor was then primed, and the first coat of lacquer was applied. We returned the following day to de-nib the floor removing any imperfections to the lacquer before applying the final coat, leaving the customer with a beautiful floor as you can see in the photos.
Tile & Grout Restoration and Residue Removal in Dunkeld
In this scenario our client was opening the spa and swimming pool the day after his call to us. The problem he had was that recently laid tiles looked dirty and dull due to the residue left from the grout. We were able to come in, clean off any residues then apply a colour enhancing impregnator that not only gave back the shine but also protected the tiles from any future damage. As a result, they managed to open on time to excellent customer feedback.
Karndean Floor Scratch Repair, Sealing & Restoration in Forfar
It is worth sealing your commercial karndean floor before damage occurs. As we were called out to Davidson Chemist in Forfar, where a new floor have been installed in less than six weeks. The tote box is used for dispensing drugs had damaged the floor resulting in scratches. These marks had penetrated the manufacturer’s seal leaving white scratches on the grey tiles. We stripped the existing tropical seal and colour matched the tiles colouring in the white scratches. Then applied two coats of seal, which resulted in the scratches being filled and being invisible, as you can see from the photos below.
Flagstone Floor Restoration in Fowlis Wester, Crieff
Our customer used various types of finishes purchased from the local D.I.Y. store, unfortunately neither them produced any successful results, leaving the floor with the mishmash of various shades of browny/red finishes. We were asked to stripped back and clean the floor. Using our diamond encrusted brushes and specialist stone cleaning chemicals with a rotary machine, we cleaned off any old tropical seals, then used a colour enhancing impregnator to not only improve the colour, but also to protect the stone from within.
BEFORE & AFTER
After 17 years of harsh treatment, our kitchen flagstone floor needed TLC. Paul from Citrus™ worked his magic and the result exceeded our expectations. A good job done on time and budget. - Mrs. Joan Ross
