Tile FAQ


Are tile floors difficult to maintain?

Tile is known for its water resistance and easy cleaning. First, sweep or vacuum your floors to remove any dust or debris before using any cleaning products. Damp mop your tile floor at least once weekly - more often for high traffic areas - in order to decrease wear from soil and grit.

What else can I do to protect my tile floors?

Invest in floor mats and protective pads for heavy furniture. This will add an extra layer of protection to your tile floors Floor mats at entrances and exits can prevent corrosive substances from being tracked in, like dirt, sand, oil, grit, or asphalt. Placing rugs in front of vanities, kitchen sinks, stoves, and entryways is an effective way to reduce tile wear.

Cleaning glazed vs. unglazed tile floors

Glazed tile and porcelain do not require specialized care. Clean your floors regularly with an all-purpose, non-oil-based household cleaner that is compatible with cleaning grout joints. Use everyday multipurpose spray cleaner to remove soap scum, hard water deposits, and mildew on wall tiles in your bath or shower.

For unglazed tile floors, use a concentrated tile cleaner that has a natural pH for regular cleaning. These will safely remove grease, oils, and normal spills. Be sure to check that the cleaner is intended for the application, use, and travel level of the area you are cleaning. Glass tile can be cleaned with any non-abrasive cleaner recommended for either glass or tile.
