About this deal

Cookies are small files held on your computer which allow us to give you the best browsing experience possible. Thick layers are not formed because a large portion of the old coat is removed when the product is reapplied. If you need build up one end of the hearth to help with levelling, it sometimes might be easier with sand and cement mortar, as tile adhesives have a maximum depth. It will also rejuvenate old slate and help to protect the surface of both new and old slate hearths against staining and water marking and will disguise any unsightly scratches that many be present on the surface of the hearth. Made from natural products, they are micro-porous which enables them to become part of the wood grain.

I have only used the oil once and will only be able to comment on how it appears on the slate heath after several usues, but i would recommend product and provider! I don’t have a huge concentration span (and like to use the excuse of being too busy), so go for quick and easy cleaning methods where possible!

Remove any dust, ash flakes, or other debris items from the surface of the slate hearth before you proceed to clean it with the dish soap mixture. If you have a clean dust mop, sweep across the floor from one point to another, avoiding a change of direction. In the UK market by far the most common material for Fireplace Hearths is Slate, we source our slate from Brazil as it offers an excellent surface finish and is strong enough to withstand the punishment of everyday use. Dip a soft sponge or cloth into some slightly soapy water: warm water mixed with a tiny amount of washing-up liquid.

Yes we believe slate is the best material for Fireplace hearths and has been used for centuries with great success. You should also allow the hearth to air dry overnight if you intend to polish it after you clean it.For best results, allow the slate to dry overnight before putting anything on it or using the fireplace. Finally, soak a separate clean sponge in water and use it to remove any residue from the slate surface.

Use a clean mop to wipe the sealer across the slate floor – it’ll help to prevent stains from forming. I would avoid any Chinese slate as the quality does not tend to be good enough and I would questions the longevity of the material. Lay down plastic sheeting to protect nearby floors and furniture (if you forget this step, we do have an article on how to clean soot from brick and carpet).With a clean, soft cloth, apply The Original Slate Oil™ in a circular motion to the entire counter-top. Use a long wooden spoon to stir this mixture together until the dish soap is completely mixed with the water. Lithofin MN Slate Oil invigorates the stone’s colours thereby accentuating the natural structure of the material. It’s always a good idea to clean your hearth in preparation for cosy evenings around the fireplace before the winter months roll in. When you have transferred these measurements onto the plywood, cut this out carefully and then test this template in the fireplace opening to ensure you have correctly measured.

The guys that made our hearth make their own slate oil and it was great stuff as they gave me some when I had the hearth made. Use The Original Slate Oil™ as often as you like to refresh, maintain, and protect your slate counter-tops. We have also instituted enhanced sanitisation protocols at our facilities and reinforce hygiene and preventative practices.Spray onto the stained area and leave for a few minutes before using a soft brush or sponge to give the floor a scrub. Slate hearths can quite easily be scratched, these scratches are more visible on honed surfaces compared to natural riven, but they will just fade and disappear to some extend over time, or if you apply a coat of slate oil this will keep you hearth looking perfect even if under heavy use. If you don’t have a spray bottle, you can also mix these ingredients in a bucket and use a sponge to apply it.
