Whether you choose ceramic tile or natural stone, tiles will last and maintain their beauty for years and years to come. Caring for tile surfaces is pretty minimal. Tile floors can be swept daily with a broom to keep dust, sand and dirt from building up. The less these materials build up on your floors, the less chance they have of scratching them.
Aside from regularly scheduled sweeping, using a wet mop with a solution of water and vinegar or water and ammonia is all your tiles should need. Avoid chemical based cleaners unless directed to use them by the manufacturer.
For the DIY homeowner there are a few basic steps to keep in mind for a successful tiling project. Here are some key points to consider when planning your project.
- Use the proper base or substrate making sure it is smooth and durable.
- For bathrooms and kitchens, use a waterproof caulk along seams and joints
- Get a floor adhesive with the proper bond strength for the type of tile you’ve chosen
- Grout plays an important role in the success of your tile job and keeping tiles intact. It is also available in a variety of colors.
- Using a stain resistant grout will help prevent stains from accidental spills.
Always follow the instructions based on the type of tile you decide on and with proper planning, you can complete a quality tile job for years and years of enjoyment!
