The Question

Do I really need to seal my slate floor tiles?

The Answer

Hello Marion

As natural stone is porous to varying degrees, it is highly recommended to seal all natural stone to help protect the tiles from staining and ingrained dirt.

There are different types of sealers depending on the type of stone you choose, the area usage (indoor, outdoor, dry or wet area), and the look you wish to achieve (natural, satin or wet look).

Sealing is an integral part of a natural stone installation and will require cleaning with the appropriate product. Regular use will help maintain these delicate surfaces, ensuring your project will remain beautiful for many years.
