Slate is a fine-grained metamorphic stone composed of clay.

Is your slate properly maintained & Sealed?

Slate, a metamorphic rock composed of compressed mud, is flaky, tough, durable and splits easily into layers that can be made into tiles. Granite Heroes will create a custom program for the tiles to be polished, honed or left in their natural, cleft state. They can be installed in any area of the home, including showers and mudroom floors. To keep your slate tile looking its best, you must treat it properly. Wash, care for and seal slate with the right methods to ensure its long-lasting beauty. Slate is a natural stone, so some acids and alkaline cleaners may etch its surface.

Slate tile can be a challenge due to the unevenness of the slate and the only way to clean them is by scrubbing them with a bristled brush. In general, mopping slate floors regularly with a neutral floor cleaner and a flat mop, will be the best and easiest way to maintain your slate floor. Granite Heroes believes cleaning slate floors, cleaning slate showers, or cleaning slate counter tops, we know it is a challenge. Sealing slate after they're installed and after a deep cleaning is always a great idea if you want them to stay looking good.

Slate Restoration FAQ's

Slate tiles should always be sealed, whether they're just being installed or whether you've moved into a space where the tile sealant has worked off over time. It helps to protect the natural finish under the sealant from damage, and it ensures that your tiles and the gorgeous finish will last
Slate tile is perhaps the most widely used form of stone in showers. If sealed properly and cleaned regularly, it's an all-around good performer in this application. Just make sure to use the right type of slate for showers; some types can flake and deteriorate over time
First, for very mild cases of efflorescence, try a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water. Using a scrub brush, spot treat and scrub affected areas with the vinegar mix. The acidity in the vinegar helps remove the efflorescence and calcium deposits by breaking down mineral crystals.
