Tile Maintenance

You have seen in the Temperance home how natural stone tile can bring a unique artistic flare to a home, but there is one concern that homeowners often have about natural stone - maintenance. It's true that natural stone requires a little more TLC than porcelain, just as hardwood requires more care than laminate, but with the right cleaning products and methods, taking care of your natural stone can be as easy as 1,2,3! Basic sweeping and vacuuming is the best method to keep tile floors clean. However, when sweeping just isn't enough a light damp mop job is fine. Mopping can leave a residue on the surface so it is important to do a light cleaning with a mild, non-oil based product which has a neutral PH detergent. Rinse your mop frequently and rinse the area with clean water and a wrung-out mop after you are finished cleaning to help eliminate steaks or residue buildup. This will leave your tile gleaming, ready to show off to all your guests!
