This is a regular customer of ours who have their slate floors maintained by us annually. Their preference is for a high gloss finish and so that is what we give them!
For the initial work several years ago, we were required to strip the slate floor back completely to the bare stone so that we could give it all a deep clean including to the grout lines. This involved removing a build up of old seal from over the years, which proved tricky when trying to remove it from all the undulations of the slate. After neutralising the floor, we were then able to apply our preferred seals and give the high gloss finish they were hoping for. The lovely colours of the slate look much more intensified after sealing and the floors also have a durable, protective coating to prevent stains etc from spillages, and re-soiling.
Having your floors maintained annually or bi-annually (depending on traffic) after the initial work is recommend to keep on top of the floors and keep them looking great all year round for you! This is not as intensive as the first visit and in most cases should only require a good clean and top up of seal.
