Slate and Sandstone Cleaning

Art-of-Clean-Video-top-bar

Slate is formed of compressed layers of sediments formed under ocean. Since it is formed in layers, it can easily be split to expose beautifully textured surfaces.
Slate can be earthy browns, beiges, yellows, black, dark-greys, and greenish-grey, pinks, purples and copper are also found. Slate is used a lot for flooring.

What is our slate cleaning process?

 

 
1- We inspect your floor: This is to identify any limitations like stain removal, loss of loose grout surrounding surfaces sensitive to cleaning solutions and any other areas that needs consideration before the cleaning starts

 

 
2- We protect your walls and furniture: This is to limit overspray on to sensitive areas during the cleaning process. Please note no guarantee can be made that materials that is extremely sensitive to moisture might not show some form of exposure to our cleaning solutions – please read “Limitations to having your tile and stone cleaned”
 

 

3- Dry soil removal: we will remove any dry soil and dirt before any water based cleaning takes place Apply cleaning solution to the floor/wall: This can be by means of sprayer or directly from a container with pre-mixed cleaning solutions

 

 
4- Agitation: This is done by means of a rotary cleaning machine or by hand depending on the areas to be cleaned.

 

 
5- Rinse: Slurry (Dirt from the floor and cleaning solution mixed together) with our pressurised cleaning equipment. This step allows us to clean areas of your wall or floor that is not reachable with any other form of cleaning (scrubbing)

 

 
Sometimes we have to repeat the cleaning process as described above to ensure optimum results.

 

 
6- Drying: After the cleaning process has been completed, we will clean up and dry any areas. In cases where stone or tile has a high porosity, drying can take up to 12 hours

 

 
7- Sealer or impregnator: A topical sealer adds a coating to the surface of the Slate. This is done to protect against spills or other contaminants causing permanent stains and also make on-going maintenance easier. Impregnation: Application of a top quality impregnator to Slate can reduce the porosity of the Slate. The Ultra Seal™ penetrates below the surface of the Slate and act as a repellent for any liquid based spills. Applying impregnator to Slate will allow for a natural finish to the stone.
