Whether it’s a new backsplash or flooring, kitchen tile can be an exciting upgrade for any homeowner. What can be done to help preserve and maintain your new kitchen tile? Here’s a couple of tips from our experts on how to care for your kitchen tile.
- Seal the grout. This is perhaps the most critical step when it comes to preserving your kitchen tile. Sealing the grout helps to provide a barrier against food, dirt, liquids, and many other elements that your kitchen tile is likely to encounter. Depending on the type of tile that you’ve had installed, it should be resealed every few years. Don’t hesitate to ask us here at The Grout ‘n Tile Tech If you are unsure how this is done or how often. In any case, it is best to have a professional help you make this decision.
- Routine cleaning. Wipe off food, oils, or anything else with a damp cloth immediately. Make sure to use a cleaner that is safe for your specific type of tile. In addition to a proper cleaner, use a soft damp cloth instead of a more abrasive cleaning tool such as steel pads. This will help preserve the longevity of your tile. As always, we are happy to answer all your questions about how to best clean your kitchen tile.
- Know your limits. When it comes to cracked tile or damaged grout, get a professional opinion before assuming that you can manage the repairs on your own. We offer professional tile and grout repair services that can help restore your kitchen tile like new.
