Why Tile:

There are so many choices among tile to meet all tastes and preferences. By creating a floor pattern with tile, one can express his/her personal style and design a truly unique room. 

Care & Maintenance

Do not clean porcelain tile flooring with ammonia or with cleaners that contain bleach and/or acid. Acid and ammonia based cleaners may modify grout color and product stability. 

Use a cleaner that is pH neutral. This ensures cleaning will not harm your grout or surrounding surfaces.

Do not use wax or oil-based cleaners. 

Do not use steel wool or other abrasive pads to remove tough debris or stains. Steel wool may scratch your tiles and loose steel particles may eventually create rust stains in the grout over time.  

Sweep or vacuum loose dirt and dust from the floor prior to washing with water to prevent the tile from becoming muddy or leaving a residue after On textured surfaces sweep in multiple directions to ensure the removal of all foreign material that might be residing in the textured surface. For wall surfaces tile can be gently wiped down with a clean, dry cloth or rag. 

Mop the floor with a mild detergent, degreaser, or tile cleaning solution. For textured floors, the use of a medium bristle brush is recommended. A sponge or clean cloth can be used to apply the cleaning agent to wall surfaces. 

Rinse the tile thoroughly with clean water to remove any left-over detergents. 

Drying with a clean cloth or rag is recommended to increase the shine and to prevent water spots or streaks.

Natural stones: Be careful with acidic foods and drinks (lemonade, orange juice, etc.) as they may etch certain stones.
