Liquids Don’t Penetrate Easily
Have you considered a new Slate Floor for your home? This is a durable stone for flooring that is naturally found in numerous colors and textures. Liquids can’t penetrate it easily. So it is hard to stain with liquids. Though there are foods that can stain it. A penetrating sealer will stop that and will add shine. Waxing causes it to loose its slip resistance as do floor finishes.
The distinctive colors of slate are purple, brown, moron, gray, red, black, and green. There are various mixtures of these in slate. Its natural cleft is a texture many people like. This texture is somewhat rough and thus it is slip resistant. A softer shine is found in honed slate as well. Slate also comes in a smooth texture. It comes in different thicknesses. The different shapes of slate tiles are rectangles, square, and irregular. It is best to clean slate with only warm water. Using different shapes and sizes of slate tile can create a design that compliments a room.
