Tile care & maintenance
Tile is extremely easy to care for and is loved for its effortless maintenance and durability. However, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Daily care tips
Tile can be scratched, so it's important to take care when moving furniture across it. Use floor protectors wherever possible. For daily care, you need only vacuum and wet mop periodically. It's that easy!
Dealing with spills
When dealing with common liquid-based stills, such as juice spills or pet accidents, simply wipe them away. Wet mop if needed to remove any residue. Tile can get very slippery when wet, so make sure you dry your floor right away! With tougher stains such as wax or oil or a chemical-based stain, refer to your manufacturer's cleaning guidelines or take a look at Shaw's common stain guidelines. When using cleaning products, make sure they do not contain acid, vinegar, chlorine, or ammonia, as this can damage or discolor the grout as well as the tile's surface.
