Slate is a totally natural product, formed over many millions of years. It is the natural formulation of slate that means that it needs to receive regular, professional attention and care to look at its best. At A1 Professional Cleaning, we have years of experience in cleaning slate floors and our skilled, trustworthy slate floor cleaning service is available for residential and businesses clients across Shipley.
Even though a slate floor needs regular 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.
As a professional floor cleaners, we suggest that our clients sweep or dry-mop their dry floors on a daily basis as this really is the easiest way to prevent a build-up of dust, grime and dirt. Hoovers can be used on slate flooring but to prevent damage, it’s important to use a soft brush attachment.
Slate flooring can also be cleaned with a damp (not wet) mop – once per week ought to be ample – but the use of chemicals, harsh cleaners and bleach should but avoided at all costs. Slate flooring is a completely natural product which can be very easily damaged by using the wrong products.
