Ceramic & Porcelain Care and Maintenance
Damp Mop Weekly
Mop your floor with a damp mop at least once a week.
Use a neutral soap solution sparingly with water.
Use protective mats
Place mats at entrances and work areas such as stoves and sinks to help protect the tile from premature wear from dirt that can be tracked onto your floor.
Add protective pads to furniture
Protect your tile by applying pads to the legs of any metal, iron, wood, or plastic furniture that will be placed on it.
Note: Exterior metal furniture which rests on tile floors or patios may rust and cause staining.
Natural Stone Care and Maintenance
Protect your stone flooring with a sealer to prevent staining.
Use non-acidic cleaners when cleaning your stone flooring.
Remove dirt from the floor by regularly cleaning with a soft dust mop; try to avoid vacuuming the floor.
About once a week, wet mop the stone flooring using a stone soap.
Never use a chemical product to produce a shine on the stone.
It should also be wet mopped every so often using a neutral soap solution, stone soap being the best.
