Tile & Stone Care

Tile & Stone Care

Keep your Tile and Natural Stone designs looking like new for years to come.

TILE CARE

Ceramic & Porcelain tiles are virtually maintenance-free, as long as it they are kept clean and dry. Though some natural offenders can accumulate. The worst include foot traffic and fine dust, dirt, and sand particles that gather from outdoors. Fortunately, cleaning tile is one of the least demanding tasks, and here are a few tips to keep your ceramic & porcelain tiles looking “like new” for many years.

Commercial cleaners can be used for occasional use on ceramic tile, and there is a number available. However, test any product thoroughly before use as it might be difficult or impossible to remove any residue or stains. To avoid scratching, etching and chemical stains always purchase nonabrasive, nonacid cleaners for surfaces.

NATURAL STONE CARE

Marble, limestone, and granite are elegant stones that reflect an individuals taste. However, these stone are susceptible to scratching and staining. Similar to fine furniture, if neglected the stones will deteriorate. Keeping dirt, sand and other debris off these stones is a MUST, if damage is to be avoided. We recommend both pure water and Stone Soap.

DO NOT USE VINEGAR OR ANY KIND OF ACIDIC CLEANER ON NATURAL STONE. ACID SUBSTANCES CAN PERMANENTLY ETCH THE SURFACE. 

MANY PRODUCTS CLAIM TO CLEAN OR POLISH EVERYTHING. NOT ALL OF THEM WORK ON NATURAL STONE. SOME CAN CAUSE SEVERE DAMAGE. WHEN PURCHASING CLEANERS, ENSURE THE PRODUCTS ARE SUITABLE FOR THE PURPOSE YOU INTEND.
