About Slate

Slate is a natural stone that comes in several different textures, such as a smooth or cleft (rough) finish. It is a waterproof, stain-resistant natural stone and a beautiful flooring material. Slate can scratch or chip more easily than other natural stone. Aggressive cleaning and the build up of heavy waxes, floor finishes, or soap residue may cause slate floors to become dull and dingy.

Santa Fe Floor Care offers restoration services and a variety of slate finishes, such as color enhancing, and topical coatings like sealers. When we seal slate, not only will we protect the stone, but we will also give the stone the finish you desire, be it a flat, satin, or shiny look. Part of our expertise at Santa Fe Floor Care is knowing which sealer to use under varying circumstances.

Caring For Slate

Sweep or dust mop your floors regularly to remove anything that can get ground into the surface. Use only recommended cleaning products. Some acids, such as lemon or vinegar, and alkaline cleaners may etch the surface of slate, especially honed and polished slate surfaces. To prevent water spots after cleaning, dry your polished or honed slate with a soft cloth. We make it a point to educate our customers on proper stone care.
