Marble restoration in Hampstead

image

An extremely satisfying project was the restoration of this carrera marble floor in the reception area of an exclusive residential development in Hampstead.

The floor was extremely tired, having lost most of its shine due to wear and tear and inadequate maintenance. The floor was honed and polished using diamond abrasives to restore it to its former glory.

Handmade rug meets Lucozade stain

We were recently requested to attempt to rescue a beautiful handmade rug over which a bottle of Lucozade had accidentally exploded. This has left an apparently permanent Lucozade stain which is often thought to be impossible to remove.

The “Pallette” rug (supplied by the Rug Company) was designed by Fiona Curran. This rug is entirely handmade, from the spinning of the wool to the weaving on the loom. It is unique, and has been crafted by weavers in the Kathmandu area, whose skills have been passed down through many generations.

The challenge was to remove Lucozade’s trademark orange colour (Beta Carotone) without bleaching the natural dyes used in the rug making process. It is considered by many cleaning companies to be impossible to remove a Lucozade stain. As you can see from the before and after photographs we were very successful in removing the majority of the staining. The rug was returned to a very happy client.

Slate rescue project – St Johns Wood

The client brief was to restore these slate tiles to their original colourful natural condition. Over the years the slate had been treated with several coats of high gloss sealer which had never been successfully stripped during previous cleans. This had resulted in a slate floor that was both shiny and dull through the accumulation of soiling in the layers of sealant. As you will see in this video managed to remove all of the contaminated layers of sealant and clean the floor to return it to an “as new” condition. The floor was finally sealed with an impregnator to repel future staining and soiling, without changing the natural appearance of the slate.

With the live finals impending, its all hands on deck  to prepare Fountain Studios for this years show. Designcare has been able to contribute to this in a small way by cleaning some of the speciality fabrics and rugs in the executive areas.

One of the best parts of our job is the variety of interesting places we are privileged to work in. It was a pleasure to work for the nice people who organise this incredibly successful production.

Good luck to all of those involved in the show!
