Topic: white mosiac flooring stains removal or replace non-slip vitrified flooring, sound proofing advice.

Hi,

I would like to get some advice on presently white mosaic flooring for 10 year old house, which has quite a few stains and looks bad as its visible from the living room. These stains were very minimal initially, and unfortunately got worsened over time. Based on some recommendations I have used mild acid based flooring cleaner/agents which has removed all the polishing and increased the stains, although the stains seem to go off initially, they come back.

We got some painters / workers to evaluate the flooring, they used acid and a grinding machine which has scarred (only on a few mosaic tails) the flooring worsened and thankfully asked them to stop the work at the right time. But over time the stains only became worsened. Please check the photos.


The stains are not deep rooted into the flooring / mosaic itself, after mild grinding the stains clears up and the floor shows clean white mosaic. Having said this, the flooring may itself need to flattened and re-polished after this. What kind of polish is recommend for mosaic ? Most contractors say they use coconut oil ? Also I like to know the average time required for getting this work completed for approximately 2000 sq foot area. (stains area may be around 50 sq foot or lesser). Work should include replacing stained tails, flattening and polishing the entire area with good quality wax / polish.

If the quality of the mosaic itself is not very good, I may consider replacing it with non-slip vitrified tails. Please recommend any good brands for vitrified tails (non-slip, mat finish) ? Is it recommendable to remove the existing mosaic and replacing with non-slip vitrified  flooring ? OR can this be installed over the exiting mosaic flooring (with roft cement), I would like to replace the skirting on the side as well to make it look uniform ? Would adding a layer vitrified tails on existing mosaic flooring have any implications to structure / foundation (non-pillar construction) of the house, especially for the first floor, although not worried about the ground floor ?

Now I am at a stage where, I may want to get some things redone (internal and external painting, flooring (replacing or repolishing), sound proofing the windows etc) the house. I have spoken to a few contractors who have recommend that stains will not go away through polishing, while a few other said it can done. Some of the contractors recommend me to go for marble / granite and replace the flooring, and skirting in sides. Honestly, I am not very convinced with authenticity of what I have been told, therefore would like to seek advice on this forum.

Please help me with the following options:

1. Based on the photos provided, is it possible to get the stains removed with re-polishing the mosaic, if not completely at-least 80-90% would be good enough ? Any good recommended polish or is coconut oil good enough ?
2. If replacing the flooring is the only option, what are the best vitrified tails (non-slippery and mat finish) recommendable, I can get around in Bangalore area.
3. Any other options (such as vetrified tails (non-slippary with mat finish), regular glossy verified tails) would be a best in terms of easy of maintenance and durability. I am hoping people can share some experience with difference kinds of vitrified tails.
4. As the house in on the busy road, I am looking a re replacing French windows (wooden) with some better sound proof, sliding window options available here. Any recommendations ?

Please advice me at the earliest and appreciate if you can recommend any good contractors in Bangalore south, would be happy to contact.

Thanks in advance.

Dear Anil
         1.For Stains, only way is grinding and wax polishing nothing more.
2. For new flooring You should go for vitrified tiles for any of good brand but if care not taken than for long run you may have stain on tile during day to day use as stains due to furniture legs and if we have iron bucket for day to day cleaning than there is stain problem..
Than best solution is granite stone flooring.

You can re-polish the existing floor. There are double charge anti skid anti stain tiles available in the market which you can install after removing the existing floor or on existing floor by chemical. You can have new stone like Marble, Katni Granite, kota etc as per you budget. In total you have all 3 options available for you.
