Caring for Tile & Natural Stone Floors

Ceramic tile and stone flooring is a hard-wearing natural product that will give you many years of lustrous beauty with the right care & maintenance routine.

Cleaning tile & natural stone

Sweep, dust or vacuum your tile floor regularly to remove dirt or grit that can scratch and dull the surface. If you vacuum, use a soft bristle or a felt head attachment. Weekly, damp mop or steam mop with a cleaner recommended specifically for tile and stone floors. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for a cleaner that is compatible with your grout.

Maintenance tips

  • Periodically reseal your tile or natural stone floor with a penetrating sealer product to continue protecting the surface.
  • Wipe up spilled food and drink as soon as it happens. Many common foods contain acids that will etch or dull a tile or stone surface if allowed to stand.
  • Do not place hot items directly on the surface as they can cause cracking.
