Caring for and Cleaning Tile

With proper cleaning and maintenance, you’ll enjoy years of inherent beauty and optimum performance from your floor, wall, and countertop tile or stone.
  • Multipurpose cleaner or mild soap and a soft cloth or mop takes care of most tile and slab cleaning
  • Routine grout cleaning can be done with a concentrated household or mild commercial cleaner
  • Seal stone tile or countertops regularly
