Clean & Polish a Slate Floor

Updated:2014-03-31 13:52:41
Slate flooring is highly durable, but needs to be cleaned regularly to remove debris that can cause scratching. Foot traffic not only leaves behind dirt and buildup, but also dulls the slate floor over time, leaving you in need of yet another maintenance procedure that keeps the slate looking as it did when you first had the flooring installed. Luckily, these routines require little work and can be done with low-cost cleaning ingredients.

Instructions as follows:


Firstly, vacuum your flooring at least once a week to remove all of the debris tracked in from shoes.
Secondly, dampen a mop with water and wipe over the slate tile floors when you have sticky residue that must be removed.
Thirdly, mix water and stone cleaning solution in the cleaning bucket, using a stone cleaner that is marked safe for use on slate, and using the water-to-cleaner ratio noted on the product label.
Fourthly, saturate your mop in the cleaning solution again and wring it out. Wipe over the slate floors.
Fifthly, moisten a cleaning rag with stone polish that, again, is marked safe for use on slate. Read label ingredients to find a product that is safe for use on flooring as well, because some polishes leave behind a slick residue that could potentially cause a slip or fall.
Sixthly, rub in the solution with one hand and wipe it off with the other, using a clean, dry rag to pick up any leftover residue.
