Care For Tile

Tile products, for the most part, require minimal maintenance. By properly caring for your tile floor, you can extend its life and preserve its appearance. Improper maintenance can result in a build-up on the surface, making the tile slippery.

Do’s and Don’ts of Cleaning Tile Floors

Cleaning Different Types of Tile: Ceramic vs. Porcelain

How to Clean Porcelain Tile

How to Clean Porcelain Tile

To keep your Porcelain Tile clean and looking it’s best, you’ll want to conduct weekly low maintenance cleaning, and a monthly deep clean. We recommend cleaning tile floors weekly by sweeping and vacuuming to remove any dirt and debris. Now, when it comes to conducting your monthly deep cleaning of tile floors, your process may differ depending on whether you have polished or unpolished porcelain tiles.

How to Clean Ceramic Tile

Much like their porcelain counterpart, cleaning ceramic tile floors is best as both a weekly and monthly routine. Each week, we recommend doing a sweep, vacuum or both to ensure dirt, sand and grit are not dulling or scratching your ceramic tiles. Each month, we suggest mopping your floors with a mild detergent / hot water solution. Make sure to use a rag or chamois mop for cleaning tile floors, as a sponge mop could push dirty water into the grout and cause stains. To avoid this, change your bucket of cleaning solution often and buff dry with a clean cloth or towel.
