Slate Floor Tiles Cleaning and Sealing in Cork

Slate is a very dense but soft and easily scratched material with low porosity, can be used effectively outdoors as well as indoors. Higher absorbency varieties are not suitable for exterior areas in freezing climates. Most slate is gray to black, but the rock may be red or purple, depending on its mineral content. The surface of slate is generally uneven and cleft planes can spall, due to the cleaving of the stone along its layers. Has low to medium absorption of oils and other liquids.  

Slate Should be sealed.

Sealants protect the tile and grout from both water-based and oil based stains.  Any form of liquid will badly stain the tile and grout.  Impregnating clear sealants will definitely prevent the tiles from staining and ease the maintenance of such tiles.

Somethimes it is a very difficult task of cleaning Slate tiles.  This is because of the many varieties of slate tiles and they are usually sealed using topical water or solvent based sealants that need to be stripped.
