Take Care of Slate Floor Tiles

Updated:2013-08-13 17:27:34
Slate tile floors can add beauty and elegance to any room in your home. A natural stone, slate tile is durable and can withstand a lot of wear and tear. But it doesn't come cheap, so it's important to properly care for the tile so it doesn't become damaged. Slate tile is not only an aesthetic asset to your home, it's an investment as well. Care for it correctly, and it will last for many years to come.

Instructions as follows:

                                              


Firstly, dust-mop your slate tile flooring every day with an untreated dust mop. Dirt, grit and other debris that are lurking on your floor can mar or scratch the surface. Run the mop only in one direction rather than moving it back and forth, which will just spread the grit around. Use a dustpan to scoop up the debris from the floor.
Secondly, damp-mop your floors weekly --- more, if needed. Fill a bucket with 1 gallon of warm water. Add a few drops of mild liquid soap such as Castile soap; don't use detergents on your slate flooring. Mix up the soap and water, and then dip a clean sponge mop into the bucket and wring it out well. Mop the slate tile flooring, overlapping your mop strokes to ensure no spot is missed. Rinse and wring out the mop often. Rinse the floor with a clean sponge mop or rags and clean water, and then go over it with dry rags.

Thirdly, place rugs and mats at the entrances of the home where you have slate tile flooring. This will help to stop dirt and grit from getting tracked onto the floor. Ideally, place a mat on the outside and inside of the entrance. Shake out the mats daily. Don't use rugs or mats with jute or rubber backing. Make sure the floor is completely dry before putting the rugs or mats down.
