Ceramic Tile Care & Maintenance

Keep your tile floors looking and performing their best with our guide.

Keep your ceramic tile in top shape with these simple steps:

1. Damp Mop Weekly:

    • Wipe your ceramic floor with a damp mop weekly.

    • Use an approved ceramic tile cleaner

    • Avoid using detergent or soap, as it can dull the surface or promote mildew growth.

    • Wait at least 72 hours after installation before damp mopping.

2. Use Protective Mats:

    • Place good quality mats at entrances and exits to protect your tile from wear.

    • Mats trap dirt, sand, grit, and other substances that can be tracked onto the floor.

    • Consider using mats at heavy pivot locations, like in front of the kitchen sink or stove.

3. Add Protective Pads to Furniture:

    • Affix felt or similar pads to furniture legs to protect your tile.

    • Exterior metal furniture on tile floors may rust and cause staining.

4. Use Recommended Sealers and Cleaners Only:

    • Use only approved floor care products

    • Avoid other cleaners that may damage your tile or grout.
