Tile Care & Maintenance

While tile is durable, it's not indestructible! Fortunately, it's one of the easiest flooring solutions to care for. Follow our expert tips!

Keep Your Tile Looking New


Even if you don’t have a lot of spare time to devote to carpet cleaning and care, there are some quick and easy tasks that will do wonders to protect the look and longevity of your hardwood flooring.


Preventative maintenance will go a long way to keep your hardwood looking as good as new for years to come. Ask family members and guests to remove their shoes before walking across your floor. Also invest in some doormats to trap dirt and particles instead of tracking them throughout your home. 


Lastly, use protective mats in entryways and pads under furniture legs.

Regular Cleaning

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 hard surface 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.

Tile and stone flooring surfaces can also get very slippery when wet, so it’s important to keep your tile and stone flooring as dry as possible. 


Dealing with Spills & Stains

For common household spills and messes like milk, beer, soda and pet accidents, immediately wipe away or mop clean.

Make sure the cleanser you use is a neutral pH compatible with grout cleaning. Never use detergent or soap, which can dull the surface or promote mildew growth. Cleaners should never contain acids, vinegar, chlorines, or ammonia, as these chemicals can damage and discolor both the grout and the stone or tile.
