Maintaining the Beauty of Your Tiles

Date:: 5 July 2023

Tiles bring lasting beauty to your space, and to keep them looking fantastic long after they're installed, we must look after them. Putting a little time and effort into routine maintenance will pay off in the longevity of your tiles. 

Regularly sweeping away dust and quickly addressing spills preserves their aesthetic appeal and protects against potential damage, keeping your tiles a timeless and enduring feature in your home.

Gentle Cleaning Routine

To keep your tiles clean and free of grime sweep and wipe down surfaces regularly with a ph-neutral cleanser.

Additionally, focusing on high-traffic areas and dedicating a little extra attention to these zones will help prevent the build-up of dirt, preserving the overall beauty and longevity of your tiles.

No Harsh Chemicals

Avoid harsh chemicals that can harm your tiles. Stick to mild, tile-friendly cleaners to preserve the beauty without causing any damage. Opt for cleaning solutions specifically formulated for tiles, as they are designed to effectively remove grime without compromising the integrity of the surface. Additionally, always test any new cleaner in a discreet area before widespread use to ensure compatibility and avoid any unforeseen reactions with your tiles.

Avoid Scratches

To keep tiles looking pristine, use furniture pads and refrain from dragging heavy items across them. Placing doormats at the entrance helps minimize the accumulation of dirt and debris, preventing any unsightly scratches. Adopting a no-shoes policy indoors can further minimize the introduction of dirt and potential abrasives, contributing to the long-term preservation of your tiles.

Address Spillage Promptly

Accidents happen, but addressing them promptly prevents staining. Blot liquids with a soft, absorbent cloth, and clean the area with a gentle cleaner. 

For tougher stains, consult the manufacturer's recommendations for stain removal, as specific tiles may have unique care instructions. Following these guidelines ensures that your cleaning approach aligns with the tile's composition, preventing any unintended damage.
