Ceramic Tile Cleaning, Sealing & Maintenance

Welcome to XO2's top ranked cleaning and maintenance products for ceramic tiles. Ceramic tiles can be either glazed or unglazed; they are made from refined clay, which is ground and pressed into moulds before being fired in the kiln at very high temperatures. The result is an exceptionally durable tile that is wear resistant, impervious to water and almost stain proof. Most ceramic tiles have a strong resistance to acid and alkaline chemicals.

How To Clean Ceramic Tiles With C-A-T: CAT stands for Chemical, Agitation and Temperature. Choose the chemical that's suitable for your surface and soil. Select the right agitation method (eg. floor pad, brush, high pressure) and what temperature will you clean with (heat often cleans better)?

Recommended Products For The 4 Types Of Ceramic Tile Maintenance

*Always test products first before use

1. Initial - Cleaning newly laid floors... Use Bobby Dazzler (pH neutral). To remove grout haze and plaster dust use Crackerjack or Phos Power

2. Regular Maintenance - Use Bobby Dazzler (pH neutral). This is for everyday cleaning.

3. Periodic Cleaning - Use Bonza or Too Easy. Periodic cleaning may occur monthly, quarterly or yearly. 

4. Restorative / Salvage Cleaning - Use TKO or CrackerjackThis is when things have gotten a little out of hand and the surface needs a reset!

Precautions: Avoid harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaners where possible. When using heavy chemicals neutralise with Bobby Dazzler afterwards to avoid fast re-soiling. 

Sealing Ceramic Tiles: XO2 does not recommend sealing ceramic floor tiles however sealing the grout will make ongoing maintenance easier. Use Pro Seal Ultra for sealing the grout around ceramic tiles. And check out this blog article... 7 Reasons Why Sealing Ceramic Floor Tiles Is Almost Always A Bad Idea
