A helpful guide
to maintaining your new tile from Pierce Flooring.
Tile flooring is a low-maintenance flooring that with proper care and upkeep can remain pristine for many years.
Weekly upkeep is essential
Routine tile maintenance should include regular sweeping to loosen and remove the dirt that adheres to the surface of your tile. Vacuuming is another useful option for cleaning up dirt and debris, though you should be sure to use the attachments to avoid dulling, scratching, or chipping your tile with the beater bar.
Place door mats at the entrances of your home
Place walk-off mats and area rugs on either side of exterior entrances to help minimize the dirt that gets tracked inside. Take proper precautions when moving heavy objects across your tile floor, and be sure to cover all furniture legs with protectors to guard against damage.
Wet mop as needed
Regularly damp mop your floor using the manufacturer's recommended grout and tile cleaners. After cleaning, rinse well and wipe dry. Textured tile may require mild scrubbing, but don't use scouring powders or other abrasives, as these can scratch the finish.
Pay attention to grout and caulking
After the installation process is complete and your grout has had ample time to cure, seal the grout and tiles to enhance protection from dirt and spills. You should also properly maintain the grout and caulking, especially in heavy water-use areas.
With regular care and maintenance, your tile floor will look beautiful for years to come.
