Routine Maintenance

  1. You should allow your new ceramic tile and grout to dry for at least 72 hours after installation, before any type of maintenance occurs.
  2. Cleaning your new floor with a damp mop once a week is the best thing you can do to maintain your ceramic floor.
  3. A simple sweeping or vacuuming of your tile floor prior to mopping will remove any dust or debris.
  4. Make sure that any cleanser you have chosen is compatible with grout cleaning, (neutral pH), and will not stain the grout. We recommend Shaw’s R2X Hard Surface Cleaner.
  5. Heavy traffic areas should be mopped more often than once a week.
  6. Never use a detergent or soap because it may dull the surface.
  7. When cleaning, the entire area should be cleaned or scrubbed with the cleansing solution, through the use of a cotton mop, cloth, sponge, or non-metallic brush.
  8. The entire flooring area should then be rinsed with clean water to remove any cleaning solution residue.
  9. Cleaning unglazed tiles should be done on a regular basis using cleansers that have a neutral pH for safe regular use; these cleaners are better suited at removing grease, oils, and normal spills from unglazed products.
  10. Remember: Routine cleaners should never contain acids, vinegar, chlorines or ammonia as these chemicals can damage and discolor the grout or the surface of the stone or tile.
  11. Always thoroughly rinse the flooring surface after cleaning, using clean clear water, to avoid any periodic residue build up or mold and mildew growth.
