Stage one involved two deep cleans and a resurfacing with a diamond polisher. It all got very wet in the process.

It has cleaned up beautifully and the colours are much brighter. On Friday they will be back to apply the sealant and to buff and polish the floor. We have to be careful not to get it dirty in the meantime.
