Slate Cleaned, Enhanced, and Sealed
This Los Angeles homeowner’s slate floor had a touch of efflorescence, which is the chalky appearance slate can get when salts and minerals seep up through the stone via moisture, then evaporate, leaving the salts and minerals embedded on the surface of the stone. Even though this floor had been cleaned regularly, the slate had a dull, dirty-looking appearance that was really frustrating the homeowners.
Slate is more brittle than other types of natural stone and should only be entrusted to experienced professionals for restoration. First we stripped the stone to remove any of the original sealer. After thoroughly cleaning the floors, paying special attention to the grout lines, we applied a penetrating color enhancing sealer to bring out the natural color of the slate. You can see for yourself what a difference our slate restoration services made. The homeowners were very satisfied with our work.
