Tile Care Guide

Taking care of your tile investment.

No matter what material you selected for your tile floor, basic maintenance is the same and will extend the life of your floor:

  • Wipe up spills as soon as they happen.
  • Dust or sweep often.
  • Damp mop your floor weekly.
  • Re-apply sealant as recommended.

What can I use to clean grout?

It is important to use a cleaning product specifically designed for grout and tile so you do not bleach or stain your floor. We recommend using an alkaline-based cleaning product so that you do not harm the plaster. If you have stubborn stains, use a brush to remove the dirt. Always rinse thoroughly after cleaning.

Having Kermans seal your grout is highly recommended to resist stains and keep your grout looking like new. When it’s time for regular cleaning, Kermans recommends a concentrated tile and grout cleaner available in our showroom.

Kermans design consultants can give you additional advice on maintenance for your particular tile product. Call or visit our showroom to learn more about tile maintenance.
