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 Chicago 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 Chicago can service all your home slate needs and customize finishes to your desire.

Christy L - Chicago, ILApril 11, 2022
We are repeat customers of Sir Grout. Dan, the owner, is fantastic with his abilities to estimate the work needed (even virtually by FaceTime) and ensuring everything goes as planned. They have repaired grout and replaced caulk in various places in our home. They also fixed up epoxy joints in countertops, etc. I can't recommend them highly enough. That's why we keep calling them back out whenever we need any help with grout, caulk, etc.
We recommend cleaning slate surfaces using a quality, stone-safe, neutral stone cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
