Tile Care & Maintenance

Tile is chosen again and again for its simple beauty, durability, and easiness to clean. It only takes a small amount of daily care to keep your shiny new tile floors healthy and gorgeous for years. Read these tips from The Design House experts to learn how to keep your tiles clean and well maintained.

It's Important

Daily Care

Regular care for your tile floors includes vacuuming and wet mopping on a weekly basis. You should also invest in doormats at all entryways to collect dirt before it tracks into your home. Placing floor protectors under your furniture will prevent scratches and scrapes from marring your floors. Area rugs can improve that protection and also reduce normal wear and tear in high-traffic areas.

General Tile Care

Tile Spills | The Design House


Tile floors are slippery when wet, so clean up any spills as quickly as possible, then dry them. Avoid cleaning products with acids and vinegar, as these can dull your tile's appearance. 

Tile Grout | The Design House


Hot water mixed with half a cup of baking soda and a towel should be sufficient for cleaning most grout stains. You may have to scrub harder to get deeper stains out, but regular cleanings will prevent buildup.
