TILE FLOORING CARE & MAINTENANCE

Keep your tile looking dazzling with proper care!

How to Clean Tile Floors

Ceramic tile is extremely easy to care for and is loved for its virtually effortless maintenance and durability. However, sooner or later the effects of time, traffic, & life will take their toll on your tile floors.

Daily tile flooring care tips

Sweep your tile floors regularly. Dirt can adhere to their surface, especially if your tile is textured. If you don’t regularly sweep to remove that dirt, it can get ground into the surface & cause damage.

If you opt to sweep with a vacuum cleaner, use one without a beater bar to avoid scratching your tile. It's also important to take care when moving furniture. Use floor protectors wherever possible.

You can also damp-mop your tile floor regularly using only your manufacturer’s recommended grout & tile cleaners. Be sure to rinse well to avoid leaving any residue behind. Even residue from cleaning products can have a dulling effect on your tile’s surface. Finally, wipe dry so you don’t create a slippery surface.

You should also practice preventative maintenance with doormats at all entryways. These will minimize the amount of dirt you track in. Just be sure to vacuum & shake them out often.

Take caution when cleaning

  • Avoid using steel wool, scouring powders, or other abrasives
  • Don’t bleach or use ammonia-based cleaners
  • Don’t clean glazed tile with oil-based cleaners
  • Clean up spills as quickly as possible to avoid stains
  • Tile may crack or chip under extreme force
