Slate Hearth Aftercare

How to clean & look after your slate hearth

All hearths produced by Custom Slate are supplied to the customer ready to install. This means that as well as cutting and finishing the hearth to the customer's specification, the slab is then thoroughly cleaned to remove any dirt or grease, before being sealed with a high grade stone sealer. The sealer helps to protect the slate and also enhances the colour of the slab. The sealer we use lasts for many years, meaning that our hearths are very low maintenance.

Day to day cleaning is simply a wipe with a soft damp cloth, and we recommend the use of WD-40 for buffing up the slate if this is needed at any time. Full instruction on aftercare will be included with your hearth, and of course, we are available via email for any further advice you may need - always happy to help!
