How should I clean and maintain my tile floors?
Tile floors are actually very easy to clean and maintain and no resealing or refinishing is needed. You should sweep or vacuum up dirt and debris and clean any spills with a damp cloth or sponge. When needed, mop with a solution recommended by your manufacturer. Keep mats by outside entrances to trap dirt and debris before they can enter your home. White or light grout lines may become soiled, in which case you should consult your manufacturer for the best way to bring them back to their original color.
Can I wax or refinish my ceramic tile floors?
No, ceramic tile flooring does not require waxing or refinishing. A simple cleaning will usually restore its beauty.
Should my tile floors be re-sealed?
If installing glazed tile flooring you should never need to seal it as the glaze itself acts as a seal. However, a sealant is often applied to unglazed tile floors to provide a soft luster. Be sure to check with the manufacturer before using a sealant.
