Every different type of flooring has a unique beauty that it brings to your home. Slate flooring brings beautiful coloring, a large range of textures, a gorgeous sheen, and an incredible warmth to your home. Selecting slate flooring is an excellent choice. Once you have installed your stunning slate flooring you will need to make sure that you take care of it carefully. Silver State Floor Restoration has some great tips for you to read through today on how you can keep your slate flooring clean.
Sweep Slate Floors Daily
Our first tip is an easy one. You will want to sweep your slate floors on a daily basis. Sweeping will help remove the dirt and debris that naturally gets on your floor. It is important to remove this dirt and debris. When you leave dirt and debris on your slate floor it acts like sandpaper. It slowly but surely wears down the sealer and surface of your flooring. Over time you will end up with scratches on your floor if you do not take the time to remove the dirt and debris by sweeping daily. We recommend that you use a dust mop to sweep your slate flooring. When you purchase your dust mop you will want to spend the extra money to purchase a high-quality, machine-washable dust mop. You definitely get what you pay for when it comes to dust mops. When you start sweeping you will want to start at one end of your floor and methodically work your way to the other end of your flooring. Push the mop toward the end where you intend on ending your mopping. You do not want to move the dust mop back and forth. This simply spreads the dirt and debris around on your floor. Push the dirt and debris using the same motion. When you have pushed the dirt and debris to the end of the room you will sweep up the line of dirt and debris before moving onto the next section.
Mop Slate Floors
In addition to frequently sweeping your floor you will also want to mop it regularly. You can clean your slate floor with warm water. If you want to use a cleanser you will want to select one that is very mild and safe for your slate. Harsh cleansers will damage your slate flooring. You want to make sure that you do no use anything with acidic ingredients. While lemon and vinegar are fantastic options for some types of flooring, they will ruin your slate.
Slate Floor Sealer
An additional way to keep your slate floors clean is to seal your flooring. Most professionals agree that slate floors need to be sealed on a yearly basis. Sealing your slate floors properly is a time-consuming process. Silver State Floor Restoration can help you with this process. Sealing your floor will help protect your slate from becoming stained or scratched.
