Porcelain and ceramic tile come in a variety of styles and are very durable, making them perfect for just about any home. Regular maintenance and care are important to keep porcelain and ceramic tile vibrant and last forever in your home. Porcelain and ceramic tiles need to be dusted or vacuumed at least once per week using a clean, dry dust mop. Sand, dirt and grit can scratch the tile or discolor the grout if not cleaned. Every two weeks, porcelain and ceramic tiles need to be mopped with a damp mop and a diluted solution of mild cleanser to remove any substances on the surfaces that may damage the tile or grout. For more details about cleaning grout lines, see this article for details.

Fixing broken or scratched porcelain or ceramic tile is also an important part of regular maintenance. If a tile is broken, it needs to be repaired quickly, or it may cause further damage. Sealants aren’t always helpful on tile floors, but they can help protect high traffic areas from grout stains. Grout should also be added when it begins to break down or is broken to ensure no further damage is done.
