lift floors. Over the years, the limestone had suffered from
heavy traffic and poor maintenance. The rear corridor had a number of

limestone floor tiles. The work was undertaken over three
weekends because the building was in continuous use on weekdays. I decided to dry grind and dry home
the limestone to ensure the areas were available for use on Mondays. On the first weekend I ground in home
the rear staircase and corridor tiles. I repaired the damage in the stair trades
and floor tile repairs with a color matched resin filler. On the second weekend. I restored the tiles at the
base of the reception stairwell. I had to grind around three millimeters
off the tiles to remove the surface scratches and damage. Then I honed the
tiles to a smooth low sheen finish. On the third weekend I
restored the lift floors. One lift floor had deep holes caused
by moving filing cabinets around the building. I ground around three millimeters off
the floor and filled the remaining hole damage with color matched resident filler. Then I honed the floors to
a smooth low sheen finish. Sealing Moleanos Limestone. The client wanted a long lasting
sealer that was easy to maintain. I discussed the different
sealing options with the client. I recommended a hybrid
film-forming penetrating sealer. This sealer penetrates
deep into the stone. The resins protect and
strengthen the stone. A durable surface film
gives added protection from
ingrained soil and makes the floor easy to maintain. The sealer is also more chemically
resistant than standard impregnating or penetrating sealers. The client was delighted with the
transformation in their limestone. I gave the client cleaning and maintenance
instructions to extend the life of the finish. These instructions were
passed on to the cleaning contractor. If you’re looking for limestone cleaning, please drop me a line at
