Clean & Seal of Green Slate Kitchen Floor in Sevenoaks, Kent
Spacious semi-detached house in Sevenoaks that had a dull-looking green slate floor.
The tiles had not been sealed in years and with losing their sheen, they had also picked up stains and marks.
I was tasked with bringing the floor back to its former glory!
Then, the grout lines were cleaned with a powerful alkaline cleaner and the same cleaner was used to buffer-scrub the tiles using a medium coarse, 17" soft diamond pad.
The floor was left to dry overnight.
The next day, I returned and tested the moisture levels in the tiles.
Slate isn't as porous as many other natural stones but it still pays to be cautious! Satisfied they were dry enough, I set about sealing the floor.
I put down a base coat of an impregnator sealer with a colour intensifier, allowed it to dry then put 5 coats of a topical sealer with a colour intensifier that gave the tiles a high shine.
I don't think the customers were expecting such an improvement to their floor.
It's always nice to exceed expectations!
