Tile and Stone Flooring Care and Maintenance

Tile and stone flooring is perhaps the easiest to maintain and with daily upkeep will look beautiful for years to come. Only a couple of minutes a day with a deeper clean once a week, is all it takes to keep your flooring looking like new! The following information from our team here at Brian’s Flooring and Design, aims to provide you with helpful maintenance tips.

Care and Maintenance Tips

Keep your tile and stone flooring clean by daily sweeping, dusting or vacuuming to clear away dirt, sand and grime. Unlike hardwood, laminate, or resilient flooring, it’s also recommended to use either steam cleaning or a wet mop at least once a week with a manufacturer approved cleaner that is also compatible with grout.

Tile Stain Removal

For common household spills and messes like water, wine, and pet accidents, immediately wipe away or mop clean. Tile and stone flooring surfaces can get very slippery when wet, so it’s important to keep your tile and stone flooring as dry as possible.

When cleaning, it’s important to avoid products that contain acids, vinegars, chlorine and ammonia. Certain cleaning chemicals can actually damage or discolor the grout or surfaces of your tile and stone flooring, so it’s important to check with your manufacturer guidelines to ensure you’re using an approved cleaning solution.

Fortunately, many manufacturers produce approved cleaning products to help keep your tile and stone floors looking their best! You may find a list of these on the manufacturers’ web sites.
