Care and Maintenance Tips

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 important to avoid products that contain acids, 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 store representatives for recommended tile and stone flooring cleaning supplies.
