Leisure Centre in Hertfordshire

Tile Doctors have the training and specialist equipment often found lacking in our competitors and in-house cleaning teams. The photographs below come from a leisure centre in Hertfordshire where regular cleaning had proved in-effective and led to the 35 year old Porcelain tiles looking worse for wear.

A tricky job given the location and build up of pool chemicals but Rob Voyce and his team did a fantastic restoration job and soon had it looking new again.

Tile Doctor announced two new strategic partnerships at its Conference on the 21st of April. One of these is a tie up with supplier 3M who supply a wide range of products from Buffing and Burnishing pads through to their respected Scotchgard Stone Floor Protector which provides a very durable very hard, glossy, dust repellent, chemical resistant and watertight surface. It provides up to 12 months protection and is ideal for high traffic areas. Below is a video from the Contacts Manager at Manchester Airport who highly recommends the product.

The second partnership announced at the Conference was with Anti-Slip specialist SureFoot Sytems and Karl Ward from Surefoot was at the Conference to discuss the problem of which accounts for half of all reported injuries suffered by members of the public. Karl revealed some interesting statistics including the fact that according to research by the Health and Safety Executive more than 90% of slip accidents happened on wet floors with smooth surfaces and that there were nearly 11,000 major injuries of this nature last year and that Slips and Trips account for 36% of the total of major injuries in the workplace. Tile Doctors are specialist maintainers of Tile and Stone polished floors and this was a subject of major interest to the delegates.

The floor was in serious need of restoration due to oil and polish build-up; hotel and local contractors had been unable to help and as you will see from the photographs it took a lot of hard work.  The operation took 2 weeks to complete, required 24 litres of Pro-Clean and 58 litres of Seal and Go.

The Lexicon Building, Manchester

Great Testimonial here from the Building Manager at the Lexicon in Manchester. The job completed by Steve Keary involved refreshing Porcelain and Travertine floors along with Grout in communal areas.

“Steve came to The Lexicon with Risk Assessments and Method Statements and worked on a Permit to Work with regards to approximately 500 persons working within the building. He liaised with myself and the tenants and was highly praised by them. Steve is very professional and friendly and his time keeping impeccable. The standard of work achieved is excellent, I highly recommend him. Jack Standley, Building Manager, The Lexicon, Manchester.”
