Slippery stone floor - remedy the situation


Dangerous: slippery stone floor!

Stone floors are mainly used on patios or as a path covering. If you have laid this covering, which usually consists of panels, correctly, then you have no problems. However, if important things are not taken into account, it can happen that the stone covering becomes slippery after rain. There can be two reasons for this.

  1. The slope in the surface is missing. If the stones are larger than on the terrace or in a courtyard, then there may be a lack of a slope through which the water can drain. Of course, this must be taken into account during construction. A gradient of 2% makes sense. That is two centimeters difference in height to one meter.
  2. Especially when the plates are in the shade, a layer of algae and moss forms very quickly. If this is the case, then you have to use the scrubber more often. It is sufficient if you scrub with clear water, if you want to make it easier for yourself, you can also use appropriate means. However, they are not exactly cheap and chemistry is also included.
