Caring for Glazed Ceramic Tile

Glazed ceramic tile requires less floor care than most of the other flooring types. However, there are things you need to do to maintain the beauty of your ceramic tile floor.

  • Wash the floor regularly to remove any dirt or grit. Use a mild, diluted detergent solution.

  • Sweep, or vacuum your glazed tile regularly.

  • Ammonia based cleaners may discolor some types of colored grout.

  • After washing with a mild detergent you should thoroughly rinse the floor with clean, warm water.

  • The glazed ceramic finish should never be waxed.

  • Liquids spills may be wiped up with an all-purpose cleaner, such as Fantastic or Top Job. This will also help the grout joints from becoming discolored from spilled liquids.

  • Non-epoxy grout joints should be treated with a silicone grout sealer twice a year to help preserve the grout color and to prevent discoloration from spilled liquids.
