Slate Floor Cleaning
North East Slate Floor Cleaning & Sealing
Slate floor cleaning was the very first job I carried out, so I have a special love of slate. There are many different types of slate from all around the world, the process for cleaning, stripping and sealing is pretty much the same.
When slate floor cleaning and sealing you have many different options when it comes to the finish depending on your personal preference.
First of all there are impregnating sealers. These absorb into the stone and sit just below the surface protecting the stone from spills and stains. Because of how dense slate is a solvent impregnating sealer is usually used. These are great if you prefer the natural look of the slate rather than a finish that sits on top of the stone. There are impregnating sealers that will protect your slate floor without altering the look at all. There are also colour enhancing sealers which as the name suggests enhances the natural colours within the stone.
Topical sealers are a coating that sit on top of your slate floor. These come in a mat, satin or gloss finish depending on your preference.
There are advantages to all types of slate floor sealers and will largely come down to personal preference. We will be happy to advise based on your preferences and also your curcumstances.
