Cleaning / Maintenance:
For all tiles which are pre-sealed / treated, we advise against using chemicals which may over time dissolve the seal. Tiles are very easy to clean / maintain and similar / same results can be seen by using light cleaning / non-chemical detergents. In the case that chemicals have been used and marks / stains are starting to show on tiles because of this, we would recommend using a heavy duty cleaner and sealer to resolve the issue. For use of any treatment products / sealers on tiles, we would highly recommend testing it on a small area before use on the entire affected area.
Please avoid using chemicals on tiles / grouts / adhesives.
