At Tiento, we want to see your tiles look their best for years to come. While tiles are generally low maintenance, every now and then they require some extra care. With our few simple cleaning tips, your tiles will look as good as new in no time!
CLEANING CERAMIC AND PORCELAIN TILES
Ceramic and porcelain tiles are incredibly durable and naturally stain resistant making them exceptionally easy to clean.
Hint: Avoid cotton and sponge mops as they tend to push dirty water into the grout.
HOW TO CLEAN TERRAZZO FLOOR TILES
Be careful when working with a natural stone tile like our Italia Terrazzo range. Chemicals in traditional cleaners can damage its surface. Instead, clean your terrazzo tiles with products specifically designed for natural stone.
We recommend Aqua Mix® Concentrated Stone & Tile Cleaner for cleaning terrazzo. Follow instructions as per the label.
Remember terrazzo is a natural stone and therefore highly porous, meaning it easily absorbs liquid and stains if left unsealed. We recommend sealing terrazzo every 18 months for protection against potential marks and stains.
CLEANING ENCAUSTIC CEMENT TILES
Encaustic cement tiles, such as our handmade Popham range, need to be cleaned in a similar way to natural stone.
We recommend Aqua Mix® Concentrated Stone & Tile Cleaner for cleaning encaustic cement tiles. Follow instructions as per the label.
Like natural stone, encaustic cement is highly porous, meaning it easily absorbs liquid and stains if left unsealed. We recommend sealing encaustic cement tiles every 18 months to assist in protection against potential marks and stains.
HOW TO CLEAN OUTDOOR TILES
Most of our outdoor tiles are porcelain which automatically protects them from rain and intense sunlight, however it is still important to choose the right cleaner to ensure their protective coating is not damaged or removed.
Following the above steps, will help to keep your tiles looking clean and sparkling for years to come.
