The slate tiles we have throughout the entire house were getting pretty dirty and looked really old. We never really got them professionally cleaned so this was our first experience with a tile cleaning company. We were lucky finding Tile Cleaners. They were highly professional and effective – the house was shining when they finished. Thank you.

Tile Cleaners did an amazing job cleaning our porcelain tiles in the house. It helped us getting a higher price when selling our house. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who need to clean their tiles!

Mike Twiker, St Kilda, VIC

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!

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.

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

When your slate surfaces start to lose their natural luster and appear dull or matte, even after regular cleaning, it's a clear sign that they are due for cleaning, stripping, and resealing. Additionally, if you notice that your slate tiles are becoming more prone to staining, it's a strong indication that the previous sealer has worn off and immediate resealing is necessary to prevent permanent staining. By addressing these signs promptly, you can maintain the beauty and longevity of your slate floors.

Yes, the slate tile cleaning services provided by Tile Cleaners® are safe. They utilize high-quality water-based products and state-of-the-art cleaning machinery to ensure the best cleaning solution without causing any harm to your slate tiles. Since stone tiles, including slate, are porous and require special care, it is essential to use the appropriate products and equipment to achieve optimal results without compromising the integrity of the tiles. Tile Cleaners® takes pride in their ability to cater to the specific needs of each tile variety, including slate, ensuring a safe and effective cleaning process.

Tile Cleaning prioritizes the use of high-quality non-solvent based stripping and sealing products during their process. These products are designed to be clean and not cause any damage to your slate tiles or other surfaces in your home. The advanced non-solvent based strippers and techniques utilized by Tile Cleaning are highly effective. In certain specific situations, where necessary, Tile Cleaning technicians may apply solvent-based strippers. However, this process would require you to vacate the premises for up to 48 hours to ensure the highest level of safety and protection for everyone involved. Rest assured that Tile Cleaning takes precautions to minimize mess and prevent any damage to your walls or skirting boards during the stripping, cleaning, and sealing process.

Tile Cleaning places great importance on the safety of your family throughout the cleaning process and guarantees the use of non-toxic finishing agents. Our commitment to safety is rooted in protecting your loved ones by avoiding any potentially harmful substances or ingredients. When selecting cleaning products, Tile Cleaning exercises utmost care to exclude any ingredients that could pose health risks. This approach not only helps preserve the condition of your stone tiles but also exemplifies our dedication to prioritizing the overall health and safety of your household.

When Tile Cleaning arrive to reseal your slate floors, you can expect a professional team that will guide you through the entire process, ensuring transparency and clarity. The process begins with the removal of any previous sealer, if applied, followed by a thorough cleaning and neutralization of the slate to eliminate dust, residue, and any other substances that could impact the new sealer's effectiveness. Once the slate floor is dry, a new sealer will be carefully applied and allowed to set. This resealing process will not only rejuvenate the appearance of your slate floor, making it look new again, but it will also provide protection and make maintenance easier in the long run. Rest assured that Tile Cleaning follows a systematic approach to deliver quality results and ensure your satisfaction.

To maintain the appearance and keep your slate tiles looking new, Tile Cleaners® suggests cleaning them on a weekly basis using a mild detergent. This regular cleaning routine helps remove dirt and grime from the surface of the slate. It is important to avoid using strong detergents that contain strong acids or alkalis as they can potentially affect the sealer. Instead, opt for mild detergents and pH-neutral substances, which are highly recommended for cleaning slate tiles and preserving the integrity of the sealer. By following these guidelines, you can help ensure that your slate tiles retain their fresh and attractive appearance over time.

When it comes to slate restoration services, Tile Cleaning follows a pricing structure based on the square meterage of each separate room. You can find a price list on the Tile Cleaning website for your reference. Additionally, you can reach out to Tile Cleaning at 1300 771 201 to obtain a free estimate. Prior to commencing the work, Tile Cleaning will measure each room individually, discuss the scope of the work to be carried out, and confirm all costs with you. This ensures transparency and allows you to have a clear understanding of the pricing involved before any restoration work begins.

To measure the size of a slate area, it is recommended to measure each room individually. Begin by measuring the width and length of the room. Multiply the width by the length to calculate the total square meterage. For example, if a room is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide, the calculation would be 3 meters * 2 meters = 6 square meters in total. By measuring each room separately and using the width * length method, you can accurately determine the size of the slate area you wish to assess or have restored.

Tile Cleaning provides assistance with moving furniture during the floor sealing process. Their team of dedicated technicians is available to help with the relocation of furniture items that can be reasonably managed by one person, such as those with wheels or lightweight furniture like tables and chairs. However, it is important to keep in mind that while Tile Cleaning takes precautions to protect your belongings, they cannot be held responsible for any damages that may occur during the furniture moving process. To ensure the safety of valuable or fragile items, it is recommended to either relocate them to a secure area or properly secure them before the technicians arrive. By taking these necessary precautions, you can help ensure the safety of your furniture and minimize the risk of potential damage while the floor sealing process is being carried out.

To prepare your slate floors for cleaning, it is recommended to move all furniture and items off the floor. This allows the cleaning process to be carried out efficiently and effectively. By removing furniture and items from the slate floor, you create a clear space for the cleaning team to work on, ensuring that the entire surface can be properly cleaned. This preparation step helps to facilitate the cleaning process and ensures that your slate floors receive the attention they need.

The frequency of sealing slate floors depends on several factors such as the type of sealer used and the amount of foot traffic the tiles are subjected to. Australia's Deepshield™ range of deep impregnating water-based sealers, for example, offers long-term benefits, with Deepshield™ Gold having a potential lifespan of up to 15 years. On the other hand, topical sealers typically last around 3 years. However, the actual lifespan can vary based on factors like high foot traffic or severe weather conditions for outdoor tiles. It's important to assess the condition of your slate tiles as well. If you notice patchy areas or they are staining easily, it may indicate the need for resealing. For specific inquiries and assistance, feel free to contact us, and our team will be happy to help.

If slate floors are not sealed, they can be susceptible to damage. Any spills that contain oil or harsh substances have the potential to penetrate the pores of the slate tiles, resulting in permanent stains that cannot be easily removed using regular domestic cleaning methods. To preserve the natural look and feel of your slate tiles, and to safeguard them against permanent staining and accidental damage, it is highly recommended to seal them. Sealing the slate floors not only helps them maintain their pristine appearance for a longer period but also makes them easier to maintain and clean, providing convenience and peace of mind.

The ideal time to seal slate floors is right after installation to provide immediate protection against accidental staining or damage. As for determining if your slate floors currently require sealing, keep an eye out for patchy areas on the floor where the sealant may have worn off. Additionally, if you notice that your slate tiles are staining more easily than before, it is a clear indication that the existing sealant has deteriorated and resealing is necessary. Monitoring the condition of your slate tiles and being attentive to any changes in their appearance and stain resistance will help you determine when it is time to seal them.

Yes, Tile Cleaning is able to remove efflorescence buildup from slate tiles. Efflorescence, which is the accumulation of salts, can be effectively eliminated using efflorescence removers and other specialized cleaning techniques. It is worth noting that efflorescence is commonly caused by issues such as water leakage behind the slate tiles or through damaged grout lines. While the efflorescence can be removed, it is crucial to address and resolve the underlying cause to prevent its recurrence. By tackling both the efflorescence buildup and addressing the root cause, Tile Cleaners® can help restore the appearance and integrity of your slate tiles.
