TERRACTOTTA FLOOR RECOVERY IN FAMILY HOUSE INTERIOR : Las Chapas (Marbella)
Recovery work indoor terracotta floor. It was a mud floor light tone with lots of stains. At the time the soil was treated with linseed oil type product, but at the time of onset of labor had lost virtually all its protective properties.
We had to proceed in a first phase to a pickling process for removing the old processor and the embedded stains that appeared. Because many areas had lots of very embedded stains, we had to repeat the stripping process on more than one occasion to get eradicate these spots.
After the pickling phase, we proceeded to rinse and scrub the floor with the appropriate products to remove any salt that may have the floor.
After a week once completely dry soil, note that the stain removal was achieved almost entirely.
After drying the floor, we proceeded to the implementation of treatment inside with satin finish in two phases. A first application with a basic treatment for sealing pore clay and a second treatment with a satin finish for total waterproofing and ground to give glossy finish ground clay.
Here is a summary of the work we leave from its initial state to the end result.
