PROPER MAINTENANCE is the key to a trouble-free tile & stone floor. It is suggested that you damp mop your new tile & travertine floors at least once a week (or more often for heavy traffic areas) with a good tile and stone surface floor cleaner such as Quick Clean. Quick Clean is an economical, hygienic and neutral cleaner for frequent tile cleaning. It is easy, safe to use and is streak free. Quick Clean contains no harmful chemicals and is biodegradable. Quick Clean will not attack or break down sealers or polishes and may therefore be used on any tile and hard surface including sealed surfaces. Quick Clean has a pleasant fragrance and is extremely economical to use due to the dilution rate. If Quick Clean is not available, make sure that any cleanser you have chosen is compatible with grout cleaning (neutral pH), and will not stain the grout. Never use a detergent or soap, because it can dull the surface or promote the growth of mildew. Routine cleaners should never contain acids, vinegar, chlorine or ammonia, as these chemicals can damage and discolor the grout or the surface of the stone or tile. (CAUTION... Wait at least 72 hours after installation before damp mopping to allow new tile and grout to dry.)
GOOD QUALITY ENTRY & EXIT MATS will help protect your tile from premature wear by trapping the dirt, sand, grit, and other substances such as oil, asphalt, or driveway sealer that would otherwise be tracked onto your floor. Mats are also suggested at heavy pivot locations… such as in front of your kitchen sink or stove. Protect your tile by affixing felt or similar pads to the legs of any metal, iron, wood, or plastic furniture that will be placed on top of it. Exterior metal furniture, which rests on tile floors or patios, may rust and cause staining.
