Maintenance & Care

Routine Care and Cleaning

For daily cleaning, always use products that are pH neutral and specifically formulated for tile and stone. Daily cleaners such as TEC Everyday (for ceramic and porcelain) or Refresh Pro (for unglazed ceramic and natural stone) are pH balanced and contain no abrasives or acids but still have the strength to cut through grease and oil.

Some cleaners contain substances that can damage natural stone and tile surfaces. Products such as acidic solutions, ammonia, or bleach can damage surfaces, degrade sealers, and discolor grout. Abrasives can scratch the surface of your tile. Soft nylon brushes, rags, and sponges work great with tile and stone cleaners on most surfaces. You want to be sure to rinse well with water to remove any soapy residue.
