This important information will help keep your tiles looking their best for many years to come. Follow these simple instructions:

Prior to Installation:

  • Check that the product and quantities are correct.
  • Conduct a test run or ‘dry lay’ to determine where cuts will need to be made.
    Important note: Final Installation of the product constitutes full acceptance.

Care and Maintenance:

  • Regular inspection is the best way to keep your tiles in good condition.
  • DO NOT use acid or detergent based cleaners on your tiles.
  • Ceramic and porcelain tiles do not need to be sealed. Always seal natural stone and cement tiles.
  • We recommend using PH neutral tile cleaners or warm water mixed with white vinegar; four parts water to one part vinegar.
  • Tiles can be cleaned with a steam mop.
  • For a deep clean, use a soft bristle broom with a PH neutral tile cleaner.

Recommended Products:

NPS (Natural-look Penetrating Sealer) A solvent based penetrating sealer that is suited to porous dense stones, or highly honed or polished stone. The slower drying time of NPS allows for greater penetration into the tighter surfaces.
