What you need to know to keep you tile looking new
A tile or stone flooring may just be the easiest floor to care for and maintain. Regular daily care is simple, and a deeper clean once a week or as needed is all it will take for your floors to stay looking beautiful for years to come.
Care and Maintenance Tips:
- Regular sweeping, dusting or vacuuming to keep dirt and debris at bay will keep your floors looking and feeling clean.
- Unlike hardwood, laminate or resilient flooring, it is also a good move to steam clean or a wet mop the floor at least once a week with a manufacturer approved cleaner that is also compatible with grout.
- For common household stains and messes such as spilled water, wine, pet accidents and the like, immediately wipe away or mop clean the mess. A word of caution: tile and stone flooring can be very slippery when wet, so make sure to let the floor dry thoroughly before someone walks on it.
- Avoid using cleaning products that contain acids, vinegars, chlorine or ammonia. Certain cleaning chemicals can damage or discolor the grout or surface of your tile and stone flooring, so it’s important to check with your manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure you’re using an approved cleaning solution.
