With every tile being unique, slate brings an elegant, timeless character and a natural feel to any floor. It naturally comes in thin sheets perfectly suited for use as flooring, although it has historically also found use as roof tiles. Slate has beautiful colours and variations that produces a natural dappled appearance.
This natural stone will readily absorb moisture when not sealed, so when used for external surfaces or in wet areas (like kitchens) it is highly recommended that slate be professionally sealed. Slate sealant also brings out the stones colours, making them more vivid and the sealant will prevent fading to maintain these colours significantly longer.
When you have slate floor tiles, you have a colourful natural stone finish which will last for many years with little maintenance and easy cleaning. But things can still happen that require professional assistance. Slate requires a quality sealant to prevent moisture absorption and maintain its finish. This will wear off over time (about 15 years) and will need to be reapplied. Sometimes the stone or grout can be cracked or broken and this requires minor repairs to prevent further damage. That is why Tile Cleaning Experts offer a range of services specific to slate floors that will return your slate floor to its best finish.

The elegance of slate provides a lasting beauty to your floor which will stand the test of time. The most popular service required is slate sealing. This process produces a thin transparent chemical finish, which is also absorbed into the stone, to prevent wear and further moisture absorption. This finish will make the surface easier to clean and prevent mold and discolouration of the slate and grout.
