How to maintain a slate hearth

How do I maintain a slate hearth?

Slate is a type of metamorphic rock used in hearths to produce attractive and natural- looking features.  As with any hearth, slate needs to be cleaned periodically.  Polishing your slate hearth will give an extra eye-catching lustre.

Use only the proper material and techniques when polishing your hearth as this will help it look its best and protect it from damage.


1.  Wipe down the slate with a damp cloth to remove any dust or debris before polishing.  Allow the slate to air dry completely.

2.  Squirt a few drops of teak oil, WD40 or olive oil onto a clean, dry cloth.  You can find teak oil at many home improvement stores.

3.  Apply the oil to the slate hearth with small circular motions.

4.  Use another clean, dry cloth to once more buff in an extra shine to the hearth.  This will help to absorb excess oil and will accentuate the lustre of the slate.
