Tile Care

With proper care and maintenance steps, you can easily keep your chic tile floors dazzling.

Daily Care & Maintenance Of Your New Tile

To reduce the amount of wear to your tile floor, keep mats in front of entrances to scrape footwear before entering the home, and have footwear removed by the door. Keep pet nails and claws trim to prevent scratches and brush them frequently to reduce dander. Sweep with a gentle bristle broom, dust-mop, or vacuum with beater bars disengaged as often as you can to remove dirt and debris from the surface before they become abrasive particles.

Treating Spills & Stains On Tile Floors

Although spills on your floors are never desired, you don’t have to stress about stains on tile when you take prompt action! First, gently lift any solid material with a spoon and paper towels or dry, clean cloth. Next, wipe up the remaining liquid spill with paper towels or a clean, dry white cloth, working from the outside of the spill towards the center. Treat the spot with a gentle tile-specific cleaner as needed. When you want to mop or use a Swiffer WetJet system on your tile floors for an efficient clean, use as little moisture as needed and ensure the floors dry in a reasonable amount of time.
