Normal maintenance requirements are similar to wood floors or carpet, where routine sweeping or vacuuming for removing dirt. Stone surfaces should be resealed when water no longer beads on the surface. The frequency of resealing will depend on traffic and use. Stone, like any other natural product, will age over time adding to its beauty and character.
Stone should not be cleaned with cleaning products you find at the super market. Bella Tile carries special cleaners that are made specifically to clean stone surfaces.
Even though tiles are not porous and are not as delicate as stone, they still should not be cleaned with supermarket cleaning products, which contain petroleum ingredients and leave a sheen to make it appear shiny. However, they do not deep-clean effectively. While they will remove the surface grime, they may also seal the dirt under the petrochemicals. Bella Tile carries neutral cleaners that are made specifically to clean ceramic or porcelain surfaces.
Grout is porous and MUST be sealed. Every sealer/sealant wears differently. Some sealers last for only a year, while others last more than 20 years. To test if your grout/tiles are sealed effectively, pour a little bit of water on the surface of the grout. If the water beads up, then the tile is sealed. If the water puddles and starts being absorbed in the tile/grout, then the grout is not sealed. The better sealers dry quickly, wear longer and repel as soon as applied. Bella Tile has a good selection of excellent sealants in stock.
Unless required by the manufacture, you do not need to seal ceramic or porcelain tile. There are some tiles and some applications where the tiles need to be sealed, for example, tiles with a crackled glazing need to be sealed. Bella Tile has a good selection of sealants in stock.
The cleaning method for special or decorative finishes will be unique for each product.
Specific care and maintenance information is available for specialty materials and must be followed to ensure long-lasting beauty.
It is typically recommended to stay away from abrasive cleaners and to only use chemical cleaners as recommended.
