Mexican or Saltillo Tile Care

Mexican Saltillo Paver are natural clay tiles hand-made in Mexico. Similar to Terra Cotta Tiles, Saltillo Tiles are rustic by design; the beauty and character of each tile comes from variations in size, color, and texture. It is extremely popular in Mexico and throughout the southwestern United States. This tech help explains how to clean and scrub the tile and grout.

  • To Clean: Using a mop apply Unitex Daily Clean diluted at 2 oz per gallon of water to flooring. Allow to dry.
  • To Scrub: Dilute Matrix Grout Devil at 4 oz per gallon of water. Apply to floor using an auto scrubber with a green pad, or apply to flooring with a mop and use a floor machine with a green pad to scrub the floor.
