Protect Slate Countertops

Updated:2013-10-21 16:07:00
Slate can be an excellent choice for kitchen countertops and other applications due to its strength, heat resistance and natural, understated beauty. Protecting slate countertops is relatively easy, in comparison with some of the other natural stones. It requires a few simple supplies and periodic low maintenance.
Instructions as follows:
Firstly, remove all objects from your slate countertops, and tape off all areas where sealant will not be applied such as walls, cabinets and outlets.
Secondly, clean the countertop with a pH balanced cleanser, and wipe dry with a clean, soft towel. Make sure the countertop is completely dry before proceeding.
Thirdly, spray countertop sealant liberally on the surfaces of the countertop, and spread it evenly with a painter's pad. Allow the sealant to remain on the surfaces for 15 to 30 minutes.
Fourthly, wipe all the surfaces clean of sealant with clean, soft towels.
Fifthly, allow to cure for two to three days, but you may use the surface within six to eight hours.
Sixthly, use only a pH balanced cleanser to clean your slate countertop. Once in a while, mild soap and water is fine, but if used often, it can result in dulling build-up.
Seventhly, blot up any spills or stains as soon as possible to prevent staining.
Eighthly, apply mineral oil to your slate countertop periodically, and polish it with a clean, soft cloth to make it shine.
Tips & Warnings
To determine if you need to re-seal your slate countertop, place a few drops of water on the countertop. If it does not bead up, you may want to consider re-sealing.
Always adhere to the use and application for the particular product you are using. Work in a well-ventilated area, and keep children and pets away from the surface for approximately six to eight hours after application.
