Slate

Imagine your slate floors dramatically beautiful once again.

Thick layers of soap residue, waxes, and finishes can camouflage the distinct colors and untamed beauty of your slate floors. The highly qualified technicians at Excel Stone and Tile Care can remove this barrier to reveal the naturally stunning floor underneath. We can resolve any other problems associated with slate, such as chipping or scratches, and use color enhancing or topical coating sealers to achieve the finish you desire.

Repairs

We can also take care of any grout problems you may have including repairs and cleaning. Excel Stone and Tile Care offers many services to keep your slate looking like new.

Cleft Finish

The beautiful, rippled surface of cleft finish slate, in the wrong hands, can be damaged in the process of deep cleaning or restoration. To ensure the lasting beauty of your installation, these procedures should only be done by very qualified professionals using the proper powders, equipment, and techniques. Excel Stone and Tile Care has the knowledge and expertise to do the job right. Contact us today to discuss your slate needs.

Caring For It

Most slate is virtually waterproof, but some varieties are not. Color enhancing and topical coatings like sealers can protect and improve the look of your slate floors. We can provide these services for you and educate you on the best way to care for your specific type of slate. We can also supply cleaners that are safe to use for regular cleaning and maintenance.

Here are some suggestions to keep your slate looking like new:

  • Dust mop or vacuum with a soft bristled brush
  • Clean up spills immediately
  • Clean with a neutral pH cleaner
  • Always test any cleaner in an inconspicuous area
  • Remember that some latex backed area rugs my discolor your stone
