Caring for Tile & Stone

Tile and stone are an investment that'll keep your house looking beautiful for years. These tips will help you keep your investment looking great:

  • Use mats or rugs at entryways to keep dirt and dust from being tracked onto your floors.
  • Wear slippers or socks while on your tile floor to keep oils in your feet from damaging it.
  • Use a good quality sealant to keep your floor looking pristine.
  • Sweep and mop regularly!
  • Clean up spills immediately.

Cleaning grout can be a hassle. Here are some tips that should keep it easy:

  • Use a gentle cleaner to start off with. If that doesn't work, use a harsher one. Avoid bleach, as that could discolor your grout.
  • Work small! Start with a small length of grout and scrub with a stiff brush in a circular motion.
  • Rinse with warm water. Make sure to wipe up any remaining moisture.
  • Steam cleaners can defeat stains that regular cleaners can't, and without chemicals!
