How we can help you
Do your floors look just dirty but scratched and dull where they should be shiny? Then you need a full polish and chemical deep clean.
At MGS we fully protect your furniture and painted walls. We then using a water-based system grind down scratches and tiling lips before fully polishing the floor back to the finish of your choice, whether a honed matte finish, satin or high shine. We also reseal the floor or apply a special crystal sheen microfilm coating for even more protection.
To help you keep those floors clean and shiny we also supply a detailed guide on how to clean and maintain the floor.
Stone floors need to be correctly cleaned and maintained. If incorrect cleaners are used they will strip the sealer from the stone making the stone prone to damage. The wrong cleaners may also remove the polished finish. All-natural stone floors should be sealed annually for protection.
MGS Restoration Ltd offer a full cleaning service with free quotations. We thoroughly clean the floor stripping away any grease, cleaning agents, and sealers. Once dry we reseal the floors, top up any missing grout and finish with silicone. We guide you personally through how to care and look after your stone finish. We also leave you with a care guide hard copy.
If your floors are heavily scratched we can offer you our full diamond cutting service.
Front External Steps
Pollution and dirt will impregnate into the limestone and sandstone steps unless maintained. Often, they turn darker and patchy from foot traffic.
MGS will diamond cut the surface. Then chemically wash the stone before sealing and protecting the stone for the future.
Do you have limescale build up around the shower valves and walls? Has your cleaner used a limescale cleaner such as Viakal to clean the marble? Is your silicone lifting off?
Limescale cleaners contain strong acids which when mixed with the alkaline marbles and limestone chemically burn the surface. Only diamond cutting and polishing can restore the stone back to its original beauty.
MGS Restoration Ltd off a full cleaning service. We reseal all your stone and replace all silicone for the future.
We are stone specialists focusing on the supply, templating, manufacturing and installation of all natural and artificial quartz composite stone in residential and commercial projects. We believe our proactive approach to working with our clients leaves them with a finished product of which to be proud. Our belief is that care and attention over sourcing stone combined with precision manufacturing and a personal touch leaves a pleasing experience for everyone.
You simply need to send us your kitchen design package with plans, pick a material and we can price up your project. We then template over the finished cabinet, manufacture and install.
Bathroom Cladding Installation
At MGS we understand the requirements of a luxury bathroom bespoke manufactured from beautiful blocks of marble. We can assist you from the initial concept right through to final completion. Initial costings can be undertaken from architect plans and then we can evolve your design and material choices to develop a stone element to your bathroom which will look stunning!
We are true believers that it is all in the detail! We pride ourselves on our communication with the client at templating to advise and agree on all the little details. From wall panel joint decisions running through the bottom of niche or shower controls to door architrave and shower tray details.
We want your stone to last the test of time which is why we offer pre-works site meetings to run through preparation on sub structures and floor/wall build ups so there is never any chance of future problems. To reinforce our adhesive fixing we also mechanically fix our stone to lock it in place and think ahead at templating to design our cladding installation to lock in each wall with the next.
External Stone Cleaning
Natural stone externally needs to be cared for and maintained. MGS offer the hot 150 degree pressure washing and chemical treatment of all natural external stones. The bulk is Portland or York stone most commonly undertaken in the early summer period for areas such as front steps and external rear patios.
Doing Great Things
MGS offer the full diamond cutting service. We use special diamond pads to cut away the top layer of the surface of the stone, normally 1.5 - 2mm. On a new floor we will offer to grout with a raised finish so that when cut, we not only remove all lips but we bring the grout flush with the top of the stone. This finish is like velvet and a good colour matched grout will look almost seamless against the finished tiles.
On existing floors the diamond cutting process strips the floor of all exiting sealers, dirt and grit along with removing any unsightly scratches. We then polish the stone back up to the desired grade finish. In residential properties we finish the stone with several coats of specialist stone sealer.
In commercial properties on certain high polished finishes we use a special liquid with the large machine to not only seal but to provide an anti slip finish.
Professional Chemical Cleaning
MGS offer a professional cleaning service for any type of property. Our free quotation service allows us to tailor each project to the client's request.
We offer a special none abrasive chemical cleaning using large machines which strip all the old sealer, grease and dirt. This revives the original colour after which we can seal the stone thoroughly ready for client hand over. We provide all O&M's and offer a detailed walk through on how to care for the stone in the future.
It’s important natural stone floors are cleaned professionally and resealed with stone sealer to keep their colours true and protected. We understand communal areas or office lobbies require specialised cleaning varying on the type, size, location and foot traffic.
We not only offer diamond cutting and professional chemical cleaning but we offer a more basic monthly or quarterly clean down using chemicals designed just for your stone. All maintenance contracts are bespoke to the client to make sure the client and the stone get the most appropriate care.
Please contact us for a no obligation quotation.
We work with the loss adjusters, structural surveyors and main contractors to ensure any insurance related restoration works keep within budget and time-frames.
We adhere to regular meetings, site inspections and health and safety. We give detailed protection and stone care guidance. We also provide service maintenance contracts after completion.
Main Contractor Works
While working with main contractors on large sites we operate with our own project managers and onsite managers to ensure we comply with all H&S producing risk assessments and adhering to site safety and four or five point PPE.
We are always keeping in contact with the main contractor updating them of our progress and ensuring we do everything possible to complete works at a high quality, efficiency and safely.
Health and Safety
We take our health and safety very seriously. All our onsite managers are Lv 3 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace and first aid at work trained and certified.
We complete all RAMS and COSHH in advance of any project.
We perform internal random onsite inspections making sure all of our team members comply with your and our client and own H&S policy.
Report Assessment Writing
We can perform written reports and assessments on damaged floors for the purpose of planning permission on grade listed buildings.
Examples of our work include the famous Serpentine Bar and Kitchen situated at the river's edge inside the grounds of Hyde Park, London where we produced a report of the current Terrazzo floor. The report was created for The Royal Parks for the purpose of planning consent.
We have also created a visual inspection report for Terrazzo restoration of the Turkish Spa rooms situated inside the Mount Baths Northampton.
Floor Protection -
MGS do not offer a floor protection service but can give details on what to use and how to protect the floors from dirt and foreign objects while other tradesmen finish. The key is to use a breathable form of protection so any moisture in the stone can safely evaporate off. The wrong type of protection can cause the stone to sweat and stain or transfer cordex ridge lines into the surface of the stone.
We provide all of our clients with O&M Manuals to keep their stone looking as new as possible for as long as possible. We are always happy to give a walk-through on how to care for the stone for the future. We also offer final clean down services with our large floor cleaning machines before the final finish cleaning teams attend site. MGS also offer detailed maintenance contracts which are bespoke tailored for each project.
If you have any questions about any of our works please contact our office to arrange a meeting. We are always happy to visit you onsite to see your requirements first hand.
