Slippery Granite Tile Floors
Granite tile floors can often become very slippery and especially if they are in an area where they become wet. Granite tile can be found both indoors and outdoors.
There are two important things to think about when trying to make granite tile floors non slip. The first thing is whether you have slippery granite tile floors that are highly polished or whether your slippery granite tile is more of a matte finish.
For highly polished granite tile we recommend that you go the the following page on Polished Granite Tile.
For matte finished granite tile we recommend that you use our product for Ceramic tile product.
Ceramic Tile Floor Non Slip Product
We find that granite can be harder to treat and for that reason we are recommending this stronger product
First figure out the square footage of the area that you want to treat to make it non slip. Then figure one gallon for every 350 square feet. You will only need one application of the product. You will do a small test area before you begin to treat the entire surface. By doing this small test area on your granite you will determine the length of time that you will be leaving the liquid on the surface. There is an explanation of this test in the directions that will come with the product. There is also a video that shows the test.
We find that granite can vary in the amount of time that it takes to treat. The time will usually be somewhere between 3 and 15 minutes. Each stone is different.
It is important when you have finished your non slip granite treatment that you do not "coat" the floor with anything. Simply keep it clean.
If you have a sealer on your granite or if you are planning to seal it in the future then you will need to use one of our Solid Step Cote products. To learn more about this product go back to the home page and look at product number 2.
