Slate is a common term for metamorphic rock that is formed from shale. It’s a very popular flooring
material, owing to the fact that it’s suited for use both inside and outside. Slate deals very well with
extreme temperatures, which means that it’s a good choice for both flooring and roofing, as it is sun
resistant. Slate floors offer a natural non-slip surface and has lately become popular for kitchen floors.
Slate floor tiles are easy to recognize. They have a very natural look and feel. Slate tiles tend to be grey
in colour, though multi-colored slate is also available. Like all flooring materials, slate has individual
intricacies that need to be accounted for during cleaning. Though it’s very durable, it can and sometimes
does flake. This and other factors means that professional tile cleaning services should be engaged to
clean slate floors.
