Ceramic Flooring Care
Follow these simple instructions to care for your ceramic floor.
- Damp mop your flooring at least one time per week (more often for heavy traffic areas). Never use a detergent or soap, because it can dull the surface or promote the growth of mildew.
- Use protective mats – good quality entry and exit mats will help protect your ceramic tile from premature wear. They trap the dirt, sand, grit, and other substances such as oil, asphalt, or driveway sealer that would otherwise be tracked onto your floor. Mats are also suggested at heavy pivot locations, such as in front of your kitchen sink or stove.
- Add protective pads to furniture – protect your tile by affixing felt or similar pads to the legs of any metal, iron, wood, or plastic furniture that will be placed on it. Exterior metal furniture which rests on tile floors or patios may rust and cause staining.
