Rockliffe Hall

Prior to being contacted, Rockliffe Hall had engaged the services of an inexperienced contractor to clean & seal the limestone floors to the main reception and adjoining areas. The floor had been incorrectly sealed using an inappropriate sealer. The result was a hard lacquer type film on top of the stone that accentuated dirty mop marks left on the stone due to poor cleaning prior to sealing. The contractor had then tried to remove the sealer from the surface of the stone making the appearance of the floor inconsistent & detrimental to the surroundings. Around the reception & adjoining areas, sensitive materials such as polished wood & stainless steel abutted the surface increasing the risk of marking and damage to these surfaces during any rectification works.
