Ceramic Tile Care

Ceramic Tile CareAlthough glazed ceramic tile requires less floor care than most of the other flooring types, there are things you need to do to maintain the beauty of the ceramic tile floor.

  • Wash Regularly - Wash the floor regularly to remove any dirt or grit. Use a mild, diluted detergent solution, such as Mr. Clean or Spic & Span. If in doubt, call us to get the tile manufacturer's cleaning recommendations.
  • Vacuum Regularly - Sweep, or vacuum your glazed tile regularly.
  • Avoid Ammonia-based Cleaners - ammonia-based cleaners may discolor some types of colored grout.
  • Always Rinse - After washing with a mild detergent you should thoroughly rinse the floor with clean, warm water.
  • Never Wax a Tile - The glazed ceramic finish should never be waxed.
  • Wipe Spills Immediately - If some liquid gets spilled on the floor you may use an all-purpose cleaner like Fantastic, or Top Job to clean up the affected area. This will help the grout joints from becoming discolored from spills (Non-epoxy grout joints should be treated with a silicone sealer twice a year to ensure stain protection.)
