How to Care for your Matt Surface Tiles

So, you’ve gotten matt surface tiles for your home – now what? While ceramic and porcelain tiles are well-known for being long-lasting and easy to maintain, with just a little bit of effort, you can ensure they keep their beautiful look and continue to serve you well for years and even decades to come.

Here’s a quick guide on how you can care for your matt surface tiles daily:

1

Sweep away or vacuum up all loose dirt, sand, and other foreign materials.

2

If there are difficult-to-remove contaminants on the tile surface, firstly identify it, as different types may require different cleaning methods.

3

Ensure your detergent does not contain hydrofluoric acid, household bleaches or mosaic cleaners, as these will damage the tile surface.

4

Read and follow the detergent manufacturer’s instructions and recommended usage.

5

Test by cleaning in a small area first to see if the detergent etches the tiles or erodes the grout.

6

If you have a large area to clean, subdivide it into smaller sections for cleaning.

7

If there is no issue with step 5, proceed to clean the floor with a mop or a scrubbing machine. Rinse the floor with clean water and dry with a dry or squeezed mop.

8

Replace the dirty cleaning solution as needed and repeat step 7.

9

Ensure all detergent residue is completely removed, as residue may form a coating that traps dirt.

10

For difficult-to-remove contaminants, scrubbing with a nylon pad or bristle brush may be necessary.
