Slate Can Be Sealed but It Should Only Be Done by the Professionals

The short answer is that yes, slate can be sealed – but it should only be done by the professionals. Those who say slate shouldn’t be sealed are partially correct – it should not be sealed with wax or any other topical treatments. Doing so can leave a residue and can actually damage the slate. At Fuller Stone Care we have the right products and know the best application methods.

All Algae, Mold, and Mildew Must Be Thoroughly Removed Before Sealants are Applied

If your slate has become infested with mildew, mold, and/or algae then you definitely want to invest in professional cleaning and sealing. This is the safest option for your slate. Most people who try to handle these issues on their own will either use a cleaner that is not safe for slate and/or they will damage the slate by aggressively scrubbing it.

When you turn to Fuller Stone Care for slate cleaning, we use a pressure washer that is specially tuned to provide the right balance of pressure and heat to provide optimal results. It is strong enough and hot enough that it will get the job done – but not so strong or hot that it will damage the slate.
