Residential Slate Cleaning and Sealing
Slate is a natural stone that is commonly used in home countertops and floors. Over time, dirt and grime can accumulate on your slate surface, and it can become etched or scratched. When this happens, your slate will need to be professionally cleaned and sealed, and the Sir Grout Washington DC Metro experts are highly qualified to provide these services.
Slate comes in several different textures. There is either smooth slate or it can have a cleft (i.e. rough) finish.. Slate is a porous stone and needs to be properly cleaned and sealed after installation. The different ways to finish slate include the use of color enhancers, topical coatings (e.g. wax) penetrating sealers, and others. The type of sealer used will determine the finished look of the slate. You can achieve a gloss, matte or a low luster finish.
Sir Grout Washington DC Metro can service all your home slate needs and customize finishes to your desire.

Very well. A Sir Grout rep made a preparatory visit during which we received a clear explanation of what needed to be done. The technician arrived on-time, was very personable and clear in explaining what he would do. The bathtub was a tough job because of the decades-old layers of caulk and grout. But, he cleaned it all out and thoroughly installed a mold-resistant caulk that looks good and should give us the protection we need. The caulking jobs in the shower and the kitchen look neat and clean and, again, should provide the protection we need.
We recommend cleaning slate surfaces using a quality, stone-safe, neutral stone cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
