Tile & Stone flooring are easy to maintain

With daily upkeep, your tile floors will look beautiful for years to come. Tile care is simple & low maintenance, requiring only a couple of minutes a day and a deeper clean once a week to stay looking like new!


Care and Maintenance Tips

Keep your tile and stone flooring clean with daily sweeping, dusting or vacuuming to clear away dirt, sand & grime and keep the surface looking polished.  Unlike hardwood, laminate or resilient flooring, it’s also recommended to either steam clean or wet mop at least once a week with a manufacturer-approved cleaner that's compatible with grout.

Stain Removal

For common household spills and messes like water, wine and pet accidents, immediately wipe them away or mop them clean. Tile and stone surfaces can get very slippery when wet, so it’s important to keep your  floors dry. Avoid products that contain acids, vinegars, chlorine and ammonia, as these cleaning chemicals can actually damage or discolor the grout or surfaces of your tile and stone flooring. It’s important to check with your manufacturer guidelines to ensure you’re using an approved cleaning solution.
