In use for centuries and long appreciated for its toughness and hardwearing qualities, slate not only makes stunning flooring, when correctly cleaned and taken care of it’ll withstand the test of time.
Slate is unquestionably beautiful but to preserve its natural appearance, it has to be regularly cleaned by a professional floor cleaning specialist to ensure that it keeps its good looks and is resistant to staining and spills. If you have a slate floor and are looking for a professional, reputable slate floor cleaning service, at A1 Professional Cleaning we offer our expert services across Leeds.
It’s vital that you ensure that your slate floor is kept clean as letting dirt, stains and bacteria accumulate can sooner or later result in the need for specialist invasive procedures such as resurfacing or grinding.
At A1 Professional Cleaning, we advise our customers to dry-mop or sweep their slate floors each day if possible, as this is the best way to keep dust and debris in check. You may use a hoover on slate floors, however it is crucial that you only 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 fine to wet mop a natural slate floor but chemical cleaners and bleach should not be used. A once a week mop will be ample for most slate floors but make sure that the mop has been thoroughly squeezed out so it’s not too wet. Just like any natural product, it’s essential to avoid the use of harsh cleaning products if you are to avoid damaging a slate floor.
