In use for centuries and long appreciated for its resilience and hardwearing attributes, slate not only makes beautiful flooring, when correctly cleaned and looked after it’ll stand the test of time.
Slate is undeniably beautiful but to maintain its natural good looks, it has to be regularly cleaned by a professional floor cleaning professional to ensure that it retains its good looks and is resistant to discoloration and spills. At A1 Professional Cleaning we offer specialist, professional slate cleaning services for residential and business clients throughout Ilkley; by using our professional services you can relax in the knowledge that your slate floor is in safe hands!
Although a slate floor requires periodic professional cleaning, it is crucial that you keep on top of day-to-day cleaning as allowing a build-up of dirt could mean that the floor’s surface will need to be re-ground.
At A1 Professional Cleaning, we advise our customers to dry-mop or brush their slate floors each day if possible, as this is the simplest way to keep debris and dust under control. It’s ok to use a hoover on natural slate floors but it is important to be gentle to prevent damage.
It’s fine to damp mop a natural slate floor but chemical cleaners and bleach should not be used. A once a week mop will be ample for the majority of slate floors but make sure that the mop has been thoroughly wrung out so it’s not too wet. Slate flooring is an entirely natural product which can be very easily damaged by using harmful products.
