Tile Care & Maintenance Guide

Keeping your tile flooring & backsplashes clean

Caring for Tile

Tile & stone floors are probably the easiest type of flooring to maintain & keep clean.

Daily & Weekly Tile Cleaning Measures

Your daily tile cleaning routine should include sweeping, dusting or vacuuming regularly to remove piled-up dirt or grit that can scratch or dull the surface of your floor. If you use a vacuum, turn off the beater brush or raise it to avoid damage to your floor.

  • Wipe down your floor with a damp a steam mop at least weekly.
  • Use a cleaning solution with a neutral pH that was made specifically for stone or tile.
  • Never leave water standing on tile – this creates slippery surfaces & dulls colors over time.
  • Never use detergents or soaps – these can promote the growth of mildew.
  • Never use cleaners that contain acids, vinegar, chlorine or ammonia – these chemicals can damage or discolor your stone’s surface.
