Black slate tiles are stain resistant and durable. The exquisite look and low maintenance of these tiles make it a popular flooring choice these days. It is naturally non-absorbent, and does not slip easily, which makes it a choice option for bathrooms and kitchens. Proper care and maintenance is needed, to keep your black slate tiles looking good.

Clean Up Spills Immediately
Clean up any spills immediately with a cloth. Use a damp sponge to wipe any sticky stains off the black slate tiles immediately. After wiping with a damp cloth or sponge, wipe dry the area with a soft towel. Cleaning the spills right away will prevent any seepage into the tiles causing further damage.

Sweep Regularly
Use a broom to sweep the slate tiles regularly, on a weekly basis. This removes any sand, gravel, dirt and foreign residue that is on the tiles. You can also use a vacuum cleaner fitted with a brush to do this job.

Mop With Detergent
Use a mop to mop the black slate tiles with water and mild detergent. Mop a second time using clear water. Then, let the slate tiles air dry. Do not use harsh detergent, or soaps with acid on the slate tiles. This will cause damage to the tiles.
