Ceramic Floor Care

Ceramic flooring is made of hard clay. It can either be glazed or unglazed. Ceramic is very slick when wet, so caution should be taken to avoid any slip-and-fall accidents. Be sure to post wet floor signs around the work area to properly warn building occupants of the wet surface. Warning signs should only be removed once the floor is completely dry.

When cleaning the floor, be sure to use a cleaning product with a neutral pH. Bleach can eat away at the grout, so avoidance is key to longer grout survival. Also avoid any powders in the cleaning process. Powders can cause microscopic scratches on the floor, dulling the appearance over time.

Recommendation:

  1. Post wet floor signs near the area to be cleaned.
  2. Apply Unitex Daily Clean diluted at 2 oz per gallon of water to the floor using a cotton or blended mop.
  3. Thoroughly mop the floor and allow to dry.
  4. Wet mopping should be completed on a daily basis as part of a routine maintenance program. High-traffic areas may need to be mopped more often.

Warning: Always test materials for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix products unless specified in the label directions. Each situation reacts differently and results may vary.
