How to Maintain Your Tile

May 10, 2011

Do you have tile in your home? How do you take care of it? Modern homes generally feature tile in kitchens, bathrooms, entryways and more. Although maintenance is fairly easy, caring for your stone and/or glass tile is important and will keep the surfaces clean and beautiful.

C.A.G.E. Design Build’s tile setter recommends a solution of diluted vinegar and water for weekly cleanings. Do not use anything acidic on natural stone tile as it can etch the stone. We also advise homeowners not to use abrasive cleaners on their tile.  If you do end up using a cleaner, make sure you do not let the solution stand for any length of time as it will eat away at the grout.
