Tile and stone flooring is perhaps the easiest flooring to maintain and with regular upkeep will look beautiful for years to come. Tile care and maintenance tips are also simple and low maintenance. With only a couple of minutes of work per day and a deeper clean once a week, your flooring looking like new!
Keep your tile and stone flooring clean by daily sweeping, dusting, or vacuuming to clear away dirt, sand, and grime and keep the surface looking polished.
Unlike hardwood, laminate, or resilient flooring, it’s also recommended to use either steam cleaning or a wet mop at least once a week with a manufacturer-approved cleaner that is also compatible with grout.
For common household spills and messes like water, wine, and pet accidents, immediately wipe away or mop clean. Tile and stone flooring surfaces can get very slippery when wet, so it’s important to keep your tile and stone flooring as dry as possible.
When cleaning, it’s also important to avoid products that contain acids, like vinegar, chlorine, and ammonia. Certain cleaning chemicals can actually damage or discolor the grout or surfaces of your tile and stone flooring, so it’s important to check with your manufacturer guidelines to ensure you’re using an approved cleaning solution.
Fortunately, many manufacturers produce approved cleaning products to help keep your tile and stone floors looking their best! Speak to any of our flooring specialists for recommended tile and stone flooring cleaning supplies.
