Tile care & maintenance
Keep your tiles looking their best! Congratulations - your tiles are down and you are ready to enjoy them. Here are some helpful tips to keep them looking their best!
1. Keep spares for repairs When you first buy tiles it's important to keep a few spares for repairs, just in case of any unforeseen damage. If you are planning to tile additional areas with the same tiles, order them now to ensure consistency of shade as tiles vary slightly between batches.
2. Protect your tiles Use felt gliders under your furniture to prevent potential scratching. Door mats are a must have for any entrance to catch dust and grit before it makes a way into your home.
3. Maintain your tiles Tiles are hard wearing, eco-friendly and they do not dent or stain as easily as other flooring materials. With some simple protection measures and light regular cleaning your tiles will last, and look fantastic, for many years to come! See next page for a general cleaning guide
