Cleaning & Maintaining Tile Flooring
Tile is incredibly easy to care for. However, it still has its own unique care and maintenance requirements, as does any other flooring solution. Fortunately, it's easy to incorporate some cleaning tips into your regular routine. Read on to learn more!
Daily care & maintenance
Establish a routine that includes sweeping, dusting, and vacuuming. You'll also want to wet mop and address spills properly. You may consider investing in doormats to keep dirt off your flooring, and you could use area rugs to protect your flooring further.
Dealing with spills
For common liquid spills like milk, wine, and pet accidents, immediately wipe away or mop clean. Tile can get very slippery when wet, so it’s important to address the spill before your flooring becomes a hazard!
Use only manufacturer-approved cleaning products on your tile! These should be free of acids, vinegars, chlorine, and ammonia. Certain chemicals can actually damage or discolor your tile's grout or its actual surface, so it's important to consult your manufacturer's cleaning guidelines.
