TILE FLOOR CARE & MAINTENANCE
Keep your tile floors looking great by following our care & maintenance guide.
Daily Care & Maintenance
When in doubt, consult your tile manufacturer on care and maintenance. Here are some other helpful tile maintenance tips:
- As needed, sweep your floor to remove dirt and grit. Doing so can help to ensure that your tile is scratched, scraped or otherwise harmed.
- You may damp mop your tile weekly, but be wary of letting water pool. For an approved product, consult your manufacturer.
- Any cleanse that you should be approved for tile. We recommend not using soap or detergent as it can lead to mildew growth. Cleaners should never contain acidic products either as they can change the complexion of your floors.
- Use protective mats at the entrances of your home and ensure guests remove their shoes before walking on your tile.
Dealing With Tile Spills & Stains
One of the many benefits of tile flooring is that spills and messes are not a cause for concern. When and if spills occur on your tile flooring, simply find yourself a cloth and wipe the mess up promptly. Waiting to address a spill could damage the grout and subflooring beneath. It's always best practice to address spills immediately after they take place.
