Can't you see your porcelain tile floor clean? Do you mop and continue noticing the footprints? Are there impossible stains? Don't worry! In general, all floors are capable of retaining dirt. This depends on its peculiarities: if their texture is rough and dry, if they have accentuated reliefs where dirt accumulates, etc.

So what's the solution? When choosing flooring porcelain stoneware is important to know all its features, including the special maintenance and cleaning.

Does it have ever happened to you that once placed and grouting porcelain stoneware, residual cement has remained on the surface? In many cases, only cleaning with a dilute acid solution, such as vinegar, is enough to remove dirt. But there are also specific products for cleaning porcelain stoneware to be used with caution, because they often have very high concentrations of acid.

In the market we can find products such as Deterdek, by Fila. This descaling-cleaning fluid is slightly acidic, and very easy to use! You just have to tip out the liquid on stains, leave it acting for a few minutes and scrub with a stiff bristle brush plastic sufficiently strongly abrasive, not of metal bristles. Finally, you should rinse with water and wipe with your usual scrubbing. Due to their level of acidity, you should only use these products in rare cases.

Porcelain stoneware maintenance is very simple: regular cleaning by washing with water or a detergent solution are sufficient to give back its original features to the pavement or coating.

These are our 5 tips for cleaning porcelain stoneware:

  1. Never do acid cleaning on coatings or flooring newly placed, because the acid reacts with the unset cement and it may damage the joints.
  2. Permeates the surface with clean water prior to any chemical treatment, to prevent possible absorption of the agents used for the grouting material and the ceramic substrate, and clarifies immediately after treatment, to remove traces of chemicals.
  3. Consider the characteristics of the pavement or coating, as well as the manufacturer's recommendations.
  4. Avoid abrasives and shocks that can scratch, break or damage the surface of the floor.
  5. Avoid contact with cleaning products containing strong acids.
