Slate floors look simply beautiful and slate flooring has been popular for many hundreds of years, due to its natural appearance and unbeatable sturdiness.
Slate is certainly beautiful but to help maintain its natural appearance, it should be routinely cleaned by a professional floor cleaning expert to ensure that it retains its good looks and is protected from discoloration and spills. If you have a slate floor and are looking for a professional, dependable slate floor cleaning service, at A1 Professional Cleaning we offer our expert services across Bingley.
Even though routine professional attention is essential, slate floors should be kept clean on a daily basis to ensure that dust, dirt and grime do not accumulate as this may lead to the floor having to be resurfaced.
At A1 Professional Cleaning, we advise our customers to dry-mop or brush their slate floors each day whenever possible, as this is the simplest way to keep debris and dust at bay. It’s ok to use a vacuum cleaner on slate floors, however it’s essential that you always use a soft brush attachment, whilst being careful not to bang the vacuum onto the floor as this could cause scratches or chipping.
It’s ok to damp mop a natural slate floor but chemical cleaners and bleach should never be used. A weekly mop will be sufficient for the majority of slate floors but make sure that the mop has been thoroughly wrung out so it’s not too wet. Natural slate floors are very delicate so it’s essential to remember that they can suffer irreversible damage when the wrong products are used.
