Daily Care & Maintenance
Understanding the best methods to care for your ceramic flooring will help maintain its beauty and keep it close to its original condition. Plus, knowing what’s expected of you regarding upkeep can be a determining factor in which type of ceramic tile to purchase. All reasons why we called on our years of experience and created this section on ceramic upkeep.
It’s important to sweep a tile floor regularly. Dirt can adhere to the surface of tile, particularly in styles with a textured surface. Regular sweeping loosens and removes most of this dirt. Don’t forget those labor-saving devices, either. Feel free to use a vacuum cleaner to sweep, but be sure to use one without a beater bar to avoid dulling and scratching the tiles.
Regular Tile Care
Placing entry mats at your home's doors can help prolong the lifespan of your tile floors. You should also encourage guests to remove their shoes before walking on your new tile floors.
Tile floors should be damp-mopped regularly using a manufacturer-approved solution or cleaner. You can also spot clean messes with a cloth or paper towel. Depending on the severity of the mess, you can use a toothbrush to help get rid of the substance on your tile floors.
For more serious cleaning, consult your manufacturer for approved cleaning solutions and methods.
Dealing With Spills & Stains
Fortunately, one of the benefits of tile flooring is that spills and messes can be removed without much issue.
Should a mess or spill occur, wipe the substance away with a cloth or towel and go on with your day. The key is to address spills quickly to avoid long-term damage.
Should the mess persist, consult your manufacturer on an approved cleaning product.
