Used for hundreds of years and long valued for its durability and hardwearing characteristics, slate not only makes wonderful flooring, when properly cleaned and maintained it’ll withstand the test of time.
Slate is unquestionably beautiful but to preserve its natural appearance, it needs to be routinely cleaned by a professional floor cleaning professional to ensure that it keeps its good looks and is resistant to unsightly stains and spills. At A1 Professional Cleaning, we have many years of experience in cleaning slate floors and our professional, reliable slate floor cleaning service is readily available residential and businesses customers across Weetwood.
It’s essential to ensure that your slate floor is kept clean as allowing grime, stains and bacteria to build up can sooner or later result in the need for specialist invasive treatments such as resurfacing or grinding.
As a professional floor cleaning company, we suggest that our clients sweep or dry-mop their dry floors on a daily basis as this really is the easiest way to avoid a build-up of dust, grime and dirt. Vacuum cleaners can be used on slate flooring but to prevent damage, it’s important to use a soft brush attachment.
It’s fine to wet mop a natural slate floor but chemical cleaners and bleach should never be used. A once a week mop will be enough for the majority of slate floors but make sure that the mop has been thoroughly wrung out so it’s not too wet. Just like any natural product, it’s vital to avoid using harsh cleaning products if you are to avoid damaging a slate floor.
