Textured tile on floor

Routine Care

Porcelain tiles with a matte or textured surface may contain structure or micro texture for slip resistance and visual enhancement. We recommend the use of a grout release prior to grouting for these products to enhance the efficacy of removal of the various types of grout, latex modified grout and epoxy grout used in the market today.

Recommended Grout Release products sold through Daltile stores may include:

  • DuPont Stone Tech Professional Impregnator Pro (follow manufacturer instructions for application process)
  • Aqua Mix Grout Release (follow manufacturer instructions for application process)
Recommended Sealer products sold through Daltile stores may include:
  • DuPont Stone Tech Professional Impregnator Pro (follow manufacturer instructions for application process)
  • Aqua Mix Ultra-Solv (follow manufacturer instructions for application process)
Additional Installation Tips
  • Sealers may require more than one application depending on the tile and grout utilized (apply on a test area to validate prior to grouting).
  • Penetrating sealers usually require only one application and should not be left to dry on the tile surface (remove excess as material is being applied).
  • Remove excess sealer from the tile surface by buffing with a clean dry towel (follow manufacturer instructions).
  • Allow the sealers and /or grout release products to cure on the tile before grouting (follow manufacturer instructions).

Natural stone has its own unique qualities that not only distinguish it from man-made materials, but also should be considered in selecting it for a particular project. Stone is not manufactured; it is a product of nature. Blocks are removed from the quarry, slabs are cut from these blocks, and the slabs are further fabricated into the final stone to be installed. Each block is different; each slab is different. Skillful blending or matching of the dimension stone blocks, veneer panels, tops, etc., results in a beautiful blending of nature’s variety and man’s design. “Uniformity of material,” when applied to natural stone, is a term of relative value that needs to be understood when making a selection.

To ensure your Natural Stone products will provide you with a lifetime of aesthetics and utility, proper maintenance is crucial. Natural Stone products are porous by nature and require a different maintenance program than traditional ceramic tile.
