    Old Wax Diminishes Appearance of Slate

    This slate floor in a Boston home had several layers of old wax on the surface. Dirt, scratches, dullness, and discolored grout lines gave the floor an unsightly appearance.

    Our Slate Restoration Process

    First, we stripped the wax off the slate tiles and grout lines using a combination of heavy duty wax stripper and weighted floor machines, as well as grout brushes to scrub and scrape by hand, as needed. Then, we cleaned the floor with stone soap to neutralize and remove any chemical residue left by the stripping process.

    Our Grout Restoration Process

    We repaired missing and loose sections of grout and then applied a high quality grout color sealer to give the grout a nice, even appearance and like-new color.

    Finishing Touches

    Our final step was to apply coats of a matte finish topical sealer to the slate and grout lines to offer extra protection and make regular cleaning more productive. The homeowners were very pleased with the results.
