Slate Floor Cleaning Services in Lancashire and Cumbria

Slate tile floors can be a beautiful feature to any building, but without regular maintenance they can soon look dull and dreary very quickly. This natural stone tile is still popular to fit with modern shapes and finishes appearing all the time. But how can you make the most out of your slate tile floor?

Regular cleaning is always recommended, not only to improve the appearance of the slate but also to prolong the life. As heavy foot traffic moves over the slate, grit and dust are carried over the surface and soon start to build up in the natural grooves of the slate and of course around the edges where grout has been used to fix the slate tiles in place. The more this is left to build up the more likely you are to see loose and wobbling tiles that will only accelerate the damage to the surrounding tiles. Regular sweeping and mopping just cannot tackle this problem.

At Butterworth Cleaning we use the latest equipment and technology and only the safest products.

Frequently Asked Questions

Slate floor cleaning

Slate is highly water resistant, but not completely waterproof when used in flooring. Grout lines are particularly vulnerable as they can absorb moisture which can then get into the subfloor, so whilst slate is hardwearing do always ensure spillages are cleaned up promptly.

Slate tiles are made up of multiple layers of rock. Sometimes these layers can weaken and pieces of slate can dislodge. This is quite normal so don’t panic, but if you feel the wear is especially bad then get in touch with our technicians to discuss your options.

This really depends on how much floor there is to clean. Small sections of floor can be completedĀ in a few hours, much larger areas could take a couple of days. Get in touch with a rough estimate of the size of the area to be treated and we will let you know roughly how long it could take.
