Cleaning tiles may be a double-edged sword at times. An untidy house can exacerbate your anxiety, but high-maintenance cleaning duties can also be stressful. Of course, everything needs to be cleaned every now and again, so the secret is to pick a material that is as easy to clean as possible.
You’re already aware of dura ceramic and porcelain tile’s germ resistance and antibacterial characteristics, as well as its stain resistance, so you could have guessed that tile is also simple to clean. Ceramic and porcelain are inorganic and “inert” materials. Soap, body oils, and other residue, on the other hand, can accumulate on tile and grout, giving organic “food” for mold and mildew to thrive and should be cleaned on a regular basis. Dura tiles bring you an easy approach for cleaning tiles. A frequent light cleaning is as easy as following these three steps:
1. Sweep or wipe away any crumbs, dust, or other debris.
2. Clean, clear water should be wiped or mopped.
3. Allow to air dry or use a microfiber towel to completely dry.
That’s correct – no harsh chemicals or scrubbing with your hands and knees.
Moreover, for thorough cleaning and extra-tough stains, use a cleaner designed particularly for tile and grout or a neutral or slightly alkaline cleaner like Mr. Clean or Spic and Span, as well as a nylon or plastic scrubber if necessary.
4. Safeguarding Your Family
Because ceramic and porcelain tiles are nonflammable, they will not burn, generate smoke, or emit hazardous gases if exposed to fire, and can even slow the spread of flames to assist preserve a clear evacuation path in the case of a fire. As a result of this advantage, the complete ceramic tile family is well-suited to kitchen applications as well as regions around fireplaces and firepits.
Slip-resistant flooring is great for any moisture-rich area, such as the kitchen, bathroom, or pool deck. Check Dura’s product information or consult our expert at Duratiles to see if the solution you’re thinking about is right for your project.
