Tile Care & Maintenance

Mopping a tile floor | Flooring Direct

Daily Care & Maintenance

While tile is extremely durable, it's not indestructible. Proper care and maintenance are still needed to prolong the life of your tile. Follow these steps, and your tile will look fantastic for years!

  • Place doormats throughout your home to help keep your new tile clean.
  • You should frequently sweep, dry mop, and wet mop your tile to keep it looking brand new.
  • Tile can scratch, so you may want to place all furniture on protective pads.

Dealing With Spills & Stains

For common household spills on your tile, immediately wipe away or mop clean. Tile and stone surfaces can get very slippery when wet, so it’s important to dry your flooring as soon as possible.

When cleaning, it’s important to avoid products that contain acid, vinegar, chlorine, and ammonia. Certain cleaning chemicals can actually damage or discolor the grout or surface of your flooring, so it’s important to use a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution.
