Regular cleaning procedures


Sweep/vacuum and damp mop weekly
Regularly sweep or vacuum tile floors to remove gritty particles that might scratch them. Wipe down your ceramic floor with a damp mop at least once a week. Never use a detergent or soap, because it can dull the surface. Make certain that any cleaner you have chosen is compatible with grout cleaning, (neutral pH) and will not stain the grout.  Routine cleaners should never contain acids, vinegar, chorines or ammonia, as these chemicals can damage and discolor the grout or the surface of the tile. (Wait at least 72 hours after installation before damp moping to allow tile and grout to dry).

Use protective mats
Good quality entry and exit mats will help protect your tile from premature wear. They trap the dirt, sand, grit and other substances such as oil and asphalt. That would otherwise be tracked onto your floor. Mats are also suggested at heavy pivot locations, such as in front of your kitchen sink or stove.

Add protective pads to furniture
Protect your tile by affixing felt or similar pads to the legs of any furniture that will be placed on the tile. Metal furniture, which rests on tile floors or patios, may rust and cause staining.
