Versatile and elegant, porcelain floor tiles are an innovative product that is gaining popularity among homeowners, builders, and interior designers. Created from super-fine porcelain clay and fired at a higher temperature than ordinary ceramic tile, porcelain tiles are dense and tough enough to stand up to today’s demanding applications both indoors and out. Available in both glazed and unglazed, porcelain tiles may be highly glossy and refined or rough textured to resemble natural stone.
As with any flooring material, general cleaning techniques of porcelain and ceramic tile depend on the surface, texture and condition of the surface. Water and a soft sponge will usually be enough to clean the surface of porcelain products.
If you clean with something other than water, however, opt for a neutral pH cleaner that will not affect the finish. You can find neutral cleaners at most home centers and tile showrooms. Always test the cleaner on a small area first. If tile or stone is heavily soiled, we recommend that a professional cleaning company determines the proper cleaning technique.
