Sales of floor tiles in the U.S. and Canada have doubled in slightly over a decade, and the popularity of tiled floors continues to increase at a dramatic rate. The rise in tile sales can be attributed to two factors primarily: a determined and well-thought-out effort developed and sustained by marketing and sales forces within the industry; and by constant and significant improvements achieved by tile manufacturers over the past couple of decades. In slightly over twenty years we've come from fairly soft ”knob-back” floor tiles made from terracotta-like clays to extremely dense dust pressed porcelains that are all but indestructible. Walk into any tile salesroom today, and you will find mostly porcelain tiles displayed.
It is imperative that you use a soft brush with tough bristles to remove grime stuck to the grout areas and tile. Once you have removed the stains it is important to them rinse the area and remove any residue. Some shop bought cleaning solutions are harsh and can cause staining or dullness. Porcelain tiles subjected to tough chemicals will appear worn and often dull in appearance. Bleaches, ammonia and acids are not tile friendly and can cause damage to the tile surface. It is usually best to seek the help of a professional natural stone cleaning expert.
