Talking About Tiles

Care and maintenance

Image It is recommended that ceramic tiles should not be installed until all heavy construction has been completed.

It is vital to protect the tile to avoid construction related problems. During construction, dust debris will collect on the floor creating hazardous and slippery conditions. The dirt and debris may soil the grout as well as the tiles.

It is recommended that the tiles be covered to protect them from other trades.

Cementitious residues are always present on the tile surface although it may be invisible to the naked eye. The residue will absorb dirt thus giving an impression that the tiles are hard to clean. The latter must be removed using a proprietary grout remover.

Do not use abrasive cleaners and chemicals which could permanently scratch and damage the surface. Daily cleaning with a mild detergent is recommended. If more rigorous cleaning is required we recommend the use of a proprietary tile cleaner from a specialty tile supplier.

Daily cleaning

  • Sweep or vacuum the floor of loose dirt.
  • Using a proprietary tile cleaner follow the manufacturer’s instruction.
  • Remove the cleaning solution from the floor by using a clean mop or vacuum.
  • Rinse with clean water.
  • Remove water from the floor.
  • Buff with a dry towel or mop.
