Etched slate floor

I recently had a contractor in my home remodeling my bathroom. As a courtesy to he put down some paper material to cover my slate floor holding in a place with tape. When I remove the covering, the tape had etched the Slate floor. I live in Spokane and do not have a professional tile restoration person and wondering what I can do myself or if there's someone nearby who can do this professionally

Hi Retired,

I don't think the tape "etched" the slate. I wonder if you could put up a picture, the closest, clearest view you can get? Also, there are lots of different slates along with some non-slates that look like slates. Do you have any more information on your product?

I agree with John that the stone isn’t likely to be etched. My first thought is wondering if the tape pulled up some topical finish that was on the stone. Yeah, pictures and any other info you may have would be helpful.
