Testimonials

My grandparents have slate tiles in the entire house. It looked like they have never cleaned them before. So I decided to ring Tile Cleaners to make them have a look and hopefully solve the problem. I got so relieved when they said it is possible to fix the situation by cleaning and resealing the tiles. I booked an appointment with them and the tiles look brand new now. Tank you Tile Cleaners!

Jonathan Perry, Indooroopily, QLD

Slate tiles are very porous and I wanted to get them sealed as soon as they were laid. I wasn't sure what kind of sealer to use in my case so I contacted Tile Cleaners. They consulted me over the phone and I ended up getting my tiles sealed the next day. Quick and easy. Thank you!

Cleaning Slate Floors

Cleaning Slate Tiles can present some difficult challenges due to the many varieties of slate and the fact that Slate Tiles are often sealed with topical water or solvent based sealing products.

It is important to test the slate surface before any cleaning procedure takes place. It is important to understand what type of sealers were used on the slate before any cleaning process can take place.

There are may types of slate tiles originating from many places around the world and the slate tile cleaning process can vary depending on the type of slate tile being cleaned. Before cleaning slate you should test the slate surface to be sure that the cleaning product will not damage or discolor the slate surface. Alkaline cleaning products are generally safe for cleaning slate but cleaning slate with acidic based cleaning products could potentially damage the slate tile surface.

Slate Floors Maintenance

Slate can be well maintained if a proper maintenance cycle is put in place from the point of installation. Due to the lack of calcite in its composition, slate is resistant to acid. Problems can still arise however if the slate is very porous, as some can be, in which case the application of a good quality penetrative sealer is an absolute must.

If the slate is honed or polished the issue of scratching will have to be more seriously addressed. Barrier mats will serve to trap abrasive soil before it is walked onto the slate.

After you have cleaned your slate tile surface you may notice that the grout is still not as clean as you had hoped for. It may be necessary to do some extra scrubbing on the grout lines with your scrub pad. Just be sure to test the cleaner on the slate to be sure it will not damage or discolor the slate tile surface.

Frequently Asked Questions


You will know it's time to have your slate floors stripped, cleaned and sealed once they begin to appear dull or "matte" even after you have given them an efficient regular clean. If you notice that your slate tiles are staining easily, it's a good indication that your previous sealer is wearing off and your slate floors will need to be resealed immediately to prevent permanent staining.

Yes, our tile cleaning services are safe! Tile Cleaners® generally use only the highest quality water based products alongside our state of the art cleaning machinery to provide the best cleaning solution without compromising your slate tiles. Stone tiles are porous and require more attention than man made tiles, which is why its extremely important to use the correct products and equipment necessary to bring your slate tiles back to their best possible condition. Tile Cleaners® prides itself on specifically catering for each tile variety.

Tile Cleaners® prefer to use high quality non-solvent based stripping and sealing products. These products are not messy and won't damage your slate tiles or anything else in your home. Current non-solvent based strippers and techniques are more than adequate. Tile Cleaners® technicians can apply solvent based strippers in very specific circumstances, however this requires leaving the premises for up to 48 hours and a very high level of safety and protection.

Here at Tile Cleaners® we understand the importance of your family's safety, which is why Tile Cleaners® prefer to use non-toxic finishing agents as we not only want to protect your slate floors, but your families health too. Materials and agents that present potential health hazards are not in our product portfolio and never have been.

Our professional team will go through the job processes with you step by step so you know exactly what you're getting. The process includes stripping any previous sealer if it was applied, the slate is then thoroughly cleaned and neutralised so that it is free of dust, residue and anything else that can affect the new sealer. A new sealer is applied to the dry slate floor and allowed to set. The newly sealed slate floor will not only look new again, it will be protected and result in your slate becoming easier to maintain.

To keep your slate tiles and grout looking new, Tile Cleaners® recommend cleaning each week with a mild detergent to remove any dirt or grime from the slate surface. Strong detergents(strong acid or alkali) may affect the sealer, mild detergents and pH neutral substances are strongly recommended.

Tile Cleaners® charge per square meter for each separate room. There is a price list on the Tile Cleaners® website for you to review, or simply call us on 1300 771 201 for a free estimate. Before we begin our work each room is measured individually, work to be carried and all costs are confirmed with you.

We recommend that you measure each room of slate separately. They way to measure is the width * length. For example a room that is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide is 3 * 2 = 6m2 in total.

Tile Cleaners® technicians can help to move items that one person could be expected to move such as furniture with wheels, light furniture, tables and chairs, however as Tile Cleaners® insurance covers our restoration services, we will not be held liable for any damage caused to furniture or property you request our technicians to move.

Move all furniture and items up off the slate floor so it is ready for us to clean when we arrive.

It depends on the type of sealer used and the amount of foot traffic the slate tiles are being exposed to. Australia's Deepshield™ range of deep impregnating water based sealer's, offer long term benefits with Deepshield™ Gold lasting up to 15 years. Topical sealer's have a life expectancy of around 3 years. If you have a high amount of foot traffic or perhaps severe weather conditions(for outdoor tiles), you may experience a shorter lifetime. Sealing your slate tiles can also depend on the tiles condition. Once they start showing patchy areas and are staining easily then you should have them resealed. Give us a call and we can assist you with all your enquiries.

Slate floors can damage easily, any oily or harsh spills can damage the slate tiles and penetrate the pores leaving a permanent stain, unreachable by domestic cleaning methods. We strongly recommend sealing you slate tiles to keep their natural look and feel, to protect them against permanent staining and to prevent any future accidental damage. They will look their very best for longer and will be easier and more convenient to maintain.

The best time to have your slate tiles sealed is immediately after installation to prevent any accidental staining or damage. You will know that your slate tiles need sealing once you start noticing patchy sealed areas of the floor and/or your slate tiles are staining easier.

Yes we can. Efflorescence is a build up of salts and can be removed with efflorescence removers and other specialised cleaning techniques. Efflorescence is typically caused by a leakage behind the slate tiles or through damaged grout lines. The efflorescence can be removed but it is important the cause of the efflorescence is resoled.
