22) For ongoing maintenance, wash regularly with clean water and a pH-neutral detergent. Using harsh cleaners can strip the sealant from the face of your tile, and make them more susceptable to staining. Recommended daily cleaners are Bona Hard Surface Cleaner, Marius Fabre’s black olive oil soap, Stain-Proof Daily Floor CleanerStain-Proof Daily Countertop Cleaner, and Miracle Tile & Stone Cleaner.

23) Regular waxing every few months can keep tiles fresh and offers an extra layer of protection. Tiles may also be buffed with a soft white pad. For recommended wax products, see “Sealing, Grouting, and Waxing” above.

24) It is recommended to address spills and stains soon after they occur. Allowing them to sit for long periods of time will make them more difficult to remove.  For tough stains, Miracle Sealants Poultice Plus can be used to deep clean your tiles (resealing of any deep cleaned areas will be necessary).

25) The use of properly sized walk-off mats at entrances with heavy traffic, as well as regular sweeping or dust mopping are the easiest steps in everyday maintenance. A natural patina will occur as the floor is maintained and wears.


26) Depending on your sealant, resealing floors every 3-5 years is recommended.  For wet and/or high-traffic areas, floors should be resealed more frequently. Speak with your installer regarding the best maintenance schedule.

27) For a deep clean prior to resealing, we recommend Miracle Sealants Liquid Poultice. Additionally, floors can be lightly sanded to remove a micro top layer. This will reveal fresh pigments below the surface.

  • To refinish by sanding, an orbital sander with fine grit (e.g. 400+) wet-dry sandpaper should be used.
  • When sanding, work in small sections at a time.
  • Using clean water and a towel, wet the desired area and sand.
  • Using a second clean towel, immediately wipe the tile clean to prevent pigment, grout, or dirt from seeping into and staining your refinished surface.
  • Reseal the tiles using your preferred product.

We hope you love your tiles for decades to come!
