To Suzikg, Slate stuff.

Hi Suzikg,
I talked with one of my floor guys. His suggestion was a a product from Prosoco called "General Stone Cleaner PD". It comes in qts and gallons so you don't have to buy a 5 gallon pail. Also, the smell is clean and not overly "chemical or solvent" smelling His suggestion to the client was "seal it". His other suggestion was a floor machine to scrub it... right. I remember having to lug a 125 LB. clarke polisher around waaay back- no fun.

Thanks a bunch Steve!

I'll check that out & tell them. I'm going to their home today. Don't think they are overly concerned about it at this point as the house is under contract & they will be moving soon. But it's been a real pain for me to deal with and if the new owners retain my service, I'll have them get a pro out there to scrub & seal it.

thanks again for your help!

No worries Suzi. I checked the prosoco site. They have some enhancing sealers and other stuff that might resolve the gray areas. Better to talk to a rep or professional floor person about jumping into that area.I use enhancing sealers on old countertops and once the sealer is in the stone, it's there for good. Whoo... teaching new employees all week. Nice group of newbies, but it seems I've got one that's not just cut out for the job. Gotta give them 2 or 3 trys though before I go with my instinct. Hope everybody has a smooth week.

hope your newbies work out. weed out the dandelion...lol...and keep the others.

i will not get into the cleaning/sealing of the slate. the new owners will have to deal with the issue & if they retain my service after the sale of the home, i will recommend a pro to clean the slate and seal it. and then i will maintain it.

thank you so much for your suggestions!!!
