New Cleaning Service!

Posted by on Apr 9, 2014 in Uncategorized | Comments Off

We are delighted to offer a new stonemasonry and hard landscaping cleaning service using the state-of-the-art DOFF high pressure steam system. This non-abraisive system is highly effective in removing severely ingrained dirt, contaminates and paint and is much gentler on masonry surfaces than water pressure or sand blast cleaning.

Calcot Junior School

Granwood Floor Restoration (Commercial) Calcot Junior School, Reading  This was an old granwood floor that could no longer be cleaned and maintained properly by the school due to years of wear and a build-up of contaminates. To replace it was going to cost too much so GNC was given the opportunity to restore it. We machine sanded the floor and used several coats of sealant and polish. The result was a dramatic improvement as the pictures show. Daily machine buffing by the school and a periodic strip and re-polish by GNC means this floor can...

Northenby House

Wood Floor Restoration – Northenby House, Newbury The owners of this period listed manor house wanted the main reception hall’s strip wood flooring restored without moving the grand piano out of the room. The main area of the floor and edges were sanded and the piano was moved just half a metre for each phase of the process. Although this added additional time to the job, it prevented the piano having to be dismantled, relocated and reassembled or needing a retune! The piano took five men to lift and move it each time so as not to...
