As specialists in slate floor cleaning Horsforth wide, at A1 Professional Cleaning Services, we recommend that you clean your floor regularly – every day is ideal if you can manage it – with a dry mop, as this is the best way to pick up dust and loose dirt. It’s ok to use a vacuum cleaner on slate floors, however it’s crucial that you always use a soft brush attachment, whilst being careful not to bang the vacuum onto the floor as this can cause scuff marks or chipping.

A weekly mop will be enough for the majority of slate floors but make sure that the mop has been thoroughly squeezed out so it’s not too wet. As with every natural product, it’s essential to avoid the use of strong cleaning products if you are to avoid damaging a slate floor.
