Glass and metallic tile adds a beautiful accent to your design. With the correct care, it will continue to wow for many years. Read below for helpful, step-by-step instructions on how to best care for glass and metal tile.

Glass Tiles


For routine cleaning, use any non-abrasive cleaning product recommended for either glass or tile. DO NOT use scouring pads, steel wool, sandpaper or other abrasive products.


Metallic Tile


To clean, use a liquid non-abrasive household cleaner. Avoid cleaners containing ammonia, bleach, abrasives or other hazardous/polluting compounds.  Always test in a small inconspicuous area when using a new cleaner to ensure compatibility with your metallic tile. DO NOT use scouring pads, steel wool, sandpaper or other abrasive products.

Please contact an installation product manufacturer directly, PRIOR to usage, to obtain proper handling instructions, application instruction and warnings concerning potential health hazards for any product contemplated for use. 

To ensure your products will provide you with a lifetime of beauty and utility, proper maintenance is crucial. Natural stone products are porous by nature and require a different maintenance program than traditional ceramic tile. Dal-Tile also strongly recommends testing a small area PRIOR to usage of any installation/cleaning/maintenance product to determine whether the product serves its intended purpose.


The products described in this document may have chemicals that cause reactions in certain individuals. Dal-Tile strongly recommends the use of safety glasses, respirators (masks) and gloves in handling any materials that contain chemicals.
