Tile Care Tips
Beyond Professional Cleaning
Between professional cleanings, be sure to use neutral cleaners. General cleaners not specifically formulated for natural stone or tile are never recommended. These can breakdown the sealer, thereby removing its protective properties and making the stone and tile grout susceptible to stains. Worse yet, many cleaning products, including those that contain lemon, vinegar, bleach or ammonia can etch away the polish, discolor the surface, or even scratch the stone. Many cleaners have what is called a chelating agent in them. This agent breaks down and dissolves minerals in hard water. Since all stone are made up of minerals, these types of cleaners will dissolve and cause streaks over prolonged use.
Just like carpet and area rugs, tile flooring needs professional attention in order to optimize its look and life. When it comes to maintaining your ceramic tile, rely on Dry Master Cleaning & Restoration's expert technicians to keep your floors sparkling clean.

Types Of Tile
Ceramic Tile & Grout:
Ceramic tile and grout is made of man-made clay fired material. Glazed ceramic tile does not normally require any protective treatment. It is the glaze itself that gives the tile its excellent protection and resistance to the absorption of dirt. Many of the new ceramic tiles in today's market are manufactured to look like real stone. However the grout does absorb dirt and does need to be sealed. Dry Master Cleaning & Restoration offers tile and grout cleaning and sealing.
Quarry Tile & Pavers Brick:
Quarry tiles are unglazed ceramic material. They are particularly well suited for exterior paving due to their low absorption and resistance to freezing. This type of floor is one of the most durable on the market today. Dry Master Cleaning & Restoration offers cleaning or stripping along with sealing or a wax finish.
