Tile Care & Maintenance

The beauty, elegance and durability of ceramic tile has made it a favorite flooring choice for centuries, but these are not the only reasons for its popularity.  Tile is surprisingly easy to maintain, and by using simple household products, you can keep your ceramic tile floors looking like new for years

As with all flooring, the best care is regular care. Sweep or vacuum your tile floors at least once a week. Grime will build up if dirt and dust are not promptly removed. Tile is often used in “wet” areas of the home. Spills and spots are likely to occur. Washing with hot water and a mild household detergent should wipe away anything that finds its way onto your floor. If a “once-over” is not enough to remove the stain, try a second pass over the floor with a sponge or mop. Thoroughly rinse the floor afterwards with clean water to remove any detergent or residue that remains. For really tough stains and other maintenance problems consult our Stain Removal Guide on this page.
