Slate surfaces offer endless styling options that often create a unique visual effect. The floors in this Mount Pleasant home were no exception. For years, the slate tiles were enough to light up the living room with color and cheerfulness. Sadly, all household members found themselves unable to stop the signs of decay. The homeowner was upset when none of her cleaning products managed to bring even a sliver of her floor's former beauty, and this is what ultimately led her to contact our hard surface restoration services in Mount Pleasant.

Slate Floor Before and After Our Hard Surface Restoration Services in Mount Pleasant
The homeowner had initially gone online searching for additional tips on stone surface maintenance. She found Sir Grout Charleston by chance and couldn't look away from the results on display in our picture gallery. After checking our credentials, the homeowner went to our "Request a Quote" form and asked for an in-home evaluation.

In less than a week, our specialists went to visit her house in Mount Pleasant to look at the floor. Right away, they noticed the tiles' worn-down appearance and the unsightly marks left by old stains. In some cases, the discolored stone clashed strikingly with the tiles' natural color. The grout also looked dull and dirty, with dark stains covering parts of its light beige surface. Our specialists explained that traditional cleaners are infused with chemicals that affect the slate's porous surface, stripping away its shine and dulling its color. The grout was affected in similar ways, with liquids seeping into the grout pores and leaving stains behind. The best solution was to provide a full restoration service, from deep cleaning the floors to sealing tiles and grout for further protection. The client was okay with this approach and scheduled a new appointment with our crew that same day.

A couple of days later, our specialists returned to her house as planned. They started by cleaning the whole floor with a pH-neutral cleaner that detached all the dirt that was stuck to the surface. Then, they ran a high-speed scrubber until there were no more stains marring the tiles and the grout. Because our cleaner removes grime, soil, spills, and mold without damaging natural stone surfaces, it's the most effective solution to keep a floor spotless without wasting too much time scrubbing stickiness off the crevices.

To seal the grout, our techs applied Sir Grout's signature ColorSeal on all the grout lines. Our special sealant represents the best long-term solution to keep grout spotless in the most active parts of a home. Available in multiple colors, our grout sealant also ensures the most attractive appearance. The client wished to have white grout lines to hold all the floor's colors together, and the result really made the floor look like a work of art.

Before letting the client see it, our specialists applied a coat of Stone Armor on the slate surface and buffed the floor one last time to bring out its shine. Then, they were ready to show her the floor's final look. The homeowner was amazed, remarking that the slate looked so smooth that she could see every small detail of the tiles' design. She thanked our specialists and promised to tell all the people she knew about everything Sir Grout Charleston has to offer.

As per our routine, our specialists offered additional cleaning advice, and the client was delighted to get their valuable input. Their first recommendation was to clean all natural stone surfaces with pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our cleaner's formula combines the best ingredients to simplify cleaning without putting weakening slate surfaces in time. It removes the dirt in minutes while preserving the stone's natural shine. When the client asked about ways to prevent scratching the tiles while scrubbing off stains, our specialists recommended using non-abrasive tools like a mop, a terry cloth, or a clean towel. They also reminded her that mold and mildew thrive in a damp environment and that opening the windows to help the room's ventilation would do wonders to stop the decay caused by moisture buildup.
