Protecting Porcelain Tiles from Damage

Kennesaw, Georgia (PressExposure) February 28, 2012 -- Start by cleaning porcelain tiles often. Sweep away any dirt and debris that accumulates. Wash stains with warm water and a soft sponge or cloth. Use a door mat to prevent excess dirt from accompanying foot traffic. This prevents scratches from forming.

Use a specialty tile cleaner to remove any stains that mopping can't. Consider the type of tile in your home to select the most appropriate product. It's important to use a cleaner with the right pH balance for your floor.

To protect the mortar between tiles, seal it with quality grout sealer. Cement-based grout can be porous, leaving it vulnerable to damage. Sealing the grout joints will maintain the overall beauty of your floor. This is especially important with mosaic tiles, as the grout plays an important role in the design.

Also seal granite to prevent damage to the stone. Use a cloth and stone polish to buff granite tiles.

Try to minimize the actions that cause damage in the first place. Lift furniture when you move it, or place felt pads beneath chair and table legs to prevent scratching. Remove shoes when you enter the house. If you do wear shoes, make sure they're in good shape; worn-out high heels can have exposed metal, which can scratch tiles.

And the easiest way to maintain floors is to start with the highest quality tiles. Visit Floor and Décor's website,, to find these top-quality materials.
