Tips to Shine Slate Tiles

Updated:2013-12-30 11:25:01
Slate tile floors look nice and are relatively easy to polish and maintain. Still, they have some unique care requirements. If a proper care regimen is not followed, a slate floor can become damaged or even destroyed. However, if you keep up with regular maintenance and adhere to the proper care guidelines, your slate tile floor can maintain its original beauty for years.

Instructions as follows:


Firstly, clean debris from your slate floor, using a vacuum with a soft-bristle attachment. Use a dustpan and broom to get larger debris.
Secondly, mop your slate tile floor. Warm water alone is sufficient for light cleaning if no stains or sticky spills are present. To sanitize your slate tile floor, remove sticky spills or lift stains, mop with a mixture of 1 gallon of warm water and 2 tbsp. of a mild laundry detergent such as Woolite. Mop with even back-and-forth strokes. Re-wet and wring out your mop frequently, so you don't spread dirty water around. Your mop should never be saturated, just moist.
Thirdly, wipe excess water off the floor with a clean, soft cloth. Allow the floor to air-dry.
Fourthly, dust-mop daily to keep debris and dirt from scratching and dulling your slate tiles. Do not use an oil-based dust mop.
