How to Clean Slate Floor Tiles

Recently our services were required in Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast. Our client had very tired and worn green slate tiles and wanted them stripped back, thoroughly cleaned and resealed with a high gloss finish.  They had advised us they were contemplating replacing the tiles due to the amount of time and effort it was taking her weekly to keep them clean however, decided to give them one last shot at survival.

How to Clean Slate Floor Tiles Professionally

Our technician Abe began bringing these tiles back to life by first stripping them of any old sealant that was left on the surface. A full thorough clean then took place beginning with a dry sweep of the area to remove dry soils and large particles.  Our specialised alkaline cleaning solution was then applied to the area before agitating with a grout broom and rotary agitation. This technique brings most dirt and grime to the surface and removes any heavy soiling. High pressure cleaning and extraction then followed. This took place using our truck mount machine and a unique tool and attachment which applies a dual action high pressure steam and dirty water extraction simultaneously. The area was then dry mopped and high speed air movers were positioned accordingly and left for some time to ensure it was perfectly dry before the sealing took place.

When our technician was happy to proceed with the sealing he confirmed with the clients what look they were going for one last time. Our clients advised Abe that they wanted a high gloss/wet look finish.

In order for Abe to achieve this look he had to apply three coats of wet look sealer. Upon completion of this job Abe requested our clients for a final inspection. Our clients were absolutely thrilled with the end result and could not have been happier. We have since had a call from them as they wanted to thank us again for the amazing job and to inform us that her tiles not only look a million dollars but since our visit it has taken less than half the time to maintain the tiles. This is the process on how to clean slate floor tiles professionally, which majority of your run of the mill house cleaners can’t do.
