SnapStone Porcelain Tile Care & Maintenance

With proper care and maintenance, your SnapStone® tile floor is made to be highly durable and long-lasting. Porcelain tile is naturally stain, scratch and moisture resistant.


After installation you may resume light traffic on the floor after 24 hours. Normal traffic can resume after 72 hours.


  • Avoid using cleaning chemicals on your floor for one week after installation.
  • DO NOT USE commercial enzyme-based cleaners, vinegar or steam mops.
  • Regular sweeping or vacuuming and damp mopping is recommended to keep your floor looking its best.
  • For deep cleaning, or to address messy or sticky spills, use a detergent cleaner designed for porcelain. Avoid cleaning products that contain wax or paraffin.


Snapstone Flexible Grout is self-sealing but will still require periodic cleaning; especially in high-traffic areas. A cleaner such as SoftScrub® with Bleach and a soft-bristled brush should remove any accumulated dirt. Cleaning your grout lines monthly or quarterly will make it easier to maintain.
