How our cleaning process works


  • First, Art of Clean will inspect the floor for any marks and any loose grout and remove any loose debris before starting the clean.
  • We always protect your walls and furniture by covering them in a plastic sheet, stopping any overspray onto the units.
  • We will use a water-based cleaning solution to remove any dirt then we will apply the solution using a sprayer.
  • Rinse the dirt from the floor using our pressurised cleaning equipment; sometimes, this will be repeated if needed for best results.
  • After the cleaning process has taken place, we will clean up and dry any damp areas. Sometimes with tiles that have high porosity, drying can take up to 12 hours.


We will then use a sealer to enhance the natural colours on the slate floor. 

Application of a top-quality impregnator to the floor is crucial as it dramatically reduces the tile’s porosity. 

The impregnator penetrates below the tile and grout surface and acts as a repellent for any liquid based spills. This allows the tile to breathe.
