Limestone care and cleaning in London
A soft, sedimentary rock made mainly of calcium carbonate and consisting of minute fossils, fragments of shells and other natural debris, limestone is generally grey but can also be yellow, brown or white.
Durable and versatile, this naturally porous material can be used on the outside of buildings, where it reduces heat gain, and inside, where it can help regulate temperature.
It is widely used in walls and to give a decorative veneer and trim, and usually left matte as it doesn’t take a glossy polish well. Many of London’s best known buildings are made from Portland limestone.
As with any natural stone, wind, rain (especially even mildly acidic rainwater), temperature and atmospheric pollutants can all take their toll. Erosion, staining, chipping and cracking can also occur in limestone over time. Because it’s quite soft, limestone can be vulnerable to damage.
However, with good limestone care, you can guarantee the preservation of this versatile stone, and keep it looking its best for years to come.
However, if you want the best results, limestone cleaning and limestone restoration are specialist jobs which require the right equipment and proper training. So, whether you need limestone floor cleaning in London or anywhere else, realistically you need to call in the professionals.
