Slate tiles are available in a huge range of colours and types and have a natural slip resistance which means that they are well suited for kitchens, bathrooms and utility rooms. Their slightly textured surface offers a rustic and natural appearance with thermal resistance.
When a slate floor becomes dull and worn, stone cleaning products will not restore your natural stones tiles to their original look; they will require stone restoration which employs the use of our industrial machinery and slate specific cleaning solutions and products.
We were invited to restore these slate floor tiles in Newbury for a landlord looking to rent out his property. He wanted the tiles restoring prior to his new tenant moving in. The before picture shows how incredibly dirty these floor tiles had become over time.
This floor was deep cleaned with our rotary cleaning machinery; a pre-mixed slate cleaning solution was applied and agitated repeatedly to thoroughly clean the tiles. We then have industrial-strength drying machines that offer a fast and effective drying service in preparation for sealing the slate.
A colour-enhancing sealer was then used which meant that the natural tones of the tiles showed through and would mean that they were protected against liquid spills and mildew build-up. Slate is a hard-wearing but delicate natural stone; it does require accurate knowledge of how best to restore slate flooring.
