If you're looking for the easiest flooring to maintain, natural tile and stone are the right choice for your home!
Minimal daily care and maintenance along with a deeper clean once a week is really all it takes to keep your flooring looking like new.
We still recommend you incorporate some care and maintenance into your daily and weekly cleaning routine. Our flooring specialists at Basin Appliance have put together the following care and maintenance tips for your tile and stone flooring.
Care and Maintenance Tips
- Keep your tile and stone flooring clean with daily sweeping, dusting or vacuuming to clear away dirt, sand and grime and keep the surface looking polished.
- Unlike other types of hard surface flooring, it’s also recommended to use either steam cleaning or a wet mop at least once a week with a manufacturer-approved cleaner that is compatible with grout.
- For common household spills and messes like milk, beer, soda and pet accidents, immediately wipe away or mop clean.
Tile and stone flooring surfaces can also get very slippery when wet, so it’s important to keep your tile and stone flooring as dry as possible. After wiping away wet messes, dry the floor with a micro-cloth or towel.
Tile & Stone Cleaning Solutions
Avoid products that contain acids, vinegar, chlorine and ammonia when cleaning your tile and stone flooring. Certain cleaning chemicals could actually damage or discolor the grout or surfaces of your tile and stone flooring! It’s important to check with your manufacturer guidelines to ensure you’re using an approved cleaning solution.
Fortunately, many manufacturers produce approved cleaning products to help keep your tile and stone floors looking their best! Speak to any of our Basin Appliance store representatives for recommended tile and stone flooring cleaning supplies.
