Slate is one of the most popular natural stones, which is difficult to keep clean with all its crevices. Cleaning the stone with traditional products can be nothing less than a burden. D'Sapone® applies a cleaner specifically designed for slate, which soaks into the surface and strips all the deep stains and dirt. Our quality stone cleaning service is guaranteed to take your floor, shower or countertop to that brand new look. Learn more about our slate cleaning processes listed below…
Cleaning and Sanitizing Slate Surfaces:
We will not just clean your slate, we will also sanitize your stone surface with our cleaning process. Meet Imperia – an incredibly engineered cleaner, penetrating deep into slate to release all the stains, mold, mildew and existing sealers without damaging the integrity of the tile and grout.
Coating Grout After Cleaning Slate:
Grout fills the gaps between your slate tiles and if it is not taken care of with quality products, it will make the entire surface look bad. Grout retains all liquids or moistures, allowing stains and mold to take place. Sometimes, just cleaning doesn’t remove all the deep stains, so it should be sealed with a powerful sealer. We will lock out the stains and will prevent their occurrence with our patented grout sealing process. Coating the grout with Caponi® – a two part pigmented titanium epoxy/resin sealer, not just protects the grout, it makes everything better with its more than 40 color options to choose from.
Sealing Slate Stone with Natural Look Sealers:
As we told you above, slate comes with all the crevices and continuously releases dust in dry settings, while the stone allows moisture or liquids to pass through it easily. That’s what keeps the surface dirty and causes stains and mold. Even if your slate is cleaned, it will stain in a short order if quality sealers are not applied to it. We always take tile and grout cleaning to perfection and this is why we not only clean slate, we also seal it.
Once we perform slate sealing with our natural look sealers, it will never release dust and will also not allow the passage of moisture. We have Repela-Bond – an invisible clear resin water based sealer, and Celine – a clear topical solvent based clear resin sealer. Both will soak into the stone while closing its pores to deliver a hydrophobic surface. Celine may add a refined elegance to slate. After we seal your floor or walls, it will become almost maintenance free.
These are our slate cleaning processes. Let one of our artists deliver your slate floor or shower that look it deserves with a 5 year labor warranty.
