Posted on Oct 8, 2014 in Blog, Damaged Tiles, Tile Cleaning, Tile Replacement

Restoring Slate Tiles To Their Original Glory Cleaning and Resealing Slate Tiles by GroutPro Slate tiles look fantastic as a floor tile however it’s important to seal the surface of slate tiles because being a natural material it is porous. This means dirt and grime will penetrate into the surface which can’t be removed without specialised cleaning equipment.

Unfortunately this is a regular occurrence in older properties where the tiles may have been laid with the original slab and the substrate or adhesive has deteriorated over time. The hollow sound may be a result of ‘spot-bonding’ during the installation. ‘Spot bonding’ is when the installer...
