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

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

REGULAR CLEANING

  • 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.

GROUT CARE

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.
