Tile Care and Maintenance

How to take care of your tile floor

Your beautiful new tile flooring will be walked on, played on, spilled on, and possibly danced on. Furniture will be moved onto it, and time will take its toll. Flooring Nerd suggests you take care of that floor with a regimen of care and maintenance practices to preserve the floor in its current, beautiful state.

Preventive measures

  • Place doormats inside and outside exterior doors to prevent dirt, sand and debris from being brought into the house
  • Encourage family and visitors to use the doormats to preserve your new flooring.
  • Get in the habit of taking off your shoes at the door. Invite your friends and family to do the same.
  • Place mats under your pet's food and water bowls.

  • Place felt protectors on the bottoms of legs of furniture to prevent scrapes and scratches on your vinyl plank flooring.
  • Read your manufacturer's care instructions for added information on how to take care of the floor.

Daily Care

  • Vacuum and dust mop or sweep the floor regularly. Use the soft brush attachment to your vacuum to get into corners and hard-to-reach places.
  • When sweeping or vacuuming does not remove the dirt, mop the floor with the manufacturer’s recommended cleaner.
  • After cleaning with the manufacturer’s recommended cleaner or a mild detergent, rinse the tile thoroughly with clean, warm water to remove any leftover residue.
  • Wipe the tile dry with a clean towel to get up any film left after cleaning and put the optimum shine back in the tile floor.
  • Wipe up spills immediately with a clean cloth and the manufacturer’s recommended cleaner to prevent stains.
  • To remove food and drink stains, mildew stains, soap scum and hard water deposits, check out the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Some “don’ts”

  • Avoid using a vacuum that has a beater bar—it can dull, chip or crack the floor.
  • Don’t use abrasive scrubbing tools, steel wool, abrasive brushes, cleaners, soap or solvents on your tile flooring because they can damage it.
  • Don’t move heavy furniture or other objects across your tile floor without lots of help to keep from cracking or chipping the floor.
