The performance a floor or wall covered with porcelain stoneware must guarantee in terms of cleanability is an essential feature for guaranteeing good tile quality.
The term cleanability refers to the ease and efficacy of removing stains, dirt, dust and materials that come into contact with the surface while restoring the surface's original appearance.
Cleaning is easier if the surface to be cleaned is compact. Hi-tech porcelain stoneware’s compact surface makes it highly resistant to scratching, impermeable, less porous, with a surface which is not very absorbent, does not stain easily and guarantees a good degree of cleanability when required.
Once laid, porcelain stoneware tiles must be cleaned of dust and above all residues of adhesive remaining after tile processing and laying.
It is important to do this carefully to guarantee the material’s aesthetic quality and performance and to facilitate ordinary cleaning operations performed during regular use of the floor.
In this initial stage it is best to use acid-based products, rubbing them energetically with a rough cloth over the surfaces and rinsing thoroughly with water.
Ordinary cleaning is performed using clean warm water with the addition of cleaning products such as Emulsio Ceramica, Lysoform Casa, Aiax or Fila Cleaner diluted as stated in the instructions, with a microfibre cloth. On structured surfaces such as bush-hammered and chiselled finishes use of a rough cloth is recommended. No special treatments are required.
Clean the floor with a rough cloth soaked in warm water with the addition of cleaning products such as Det Basico, Fila PS/87 for organic dirt (grease, oil, foods). Use Det Acido or Deterdek for inorganic dirt, cement and lime scale. When finished, rinse the floor with clean warm water. Alternatively, you may use a damp sponge or cloth and a cleaning product such as Cif Liquid Gel (pure or diluted). In very dirty and/or large rooms a cleaning machine may be used without any problems.
Commercially available cleaning products may be used, in the specified concentration, excluding Hydrofluoric Acid (HF) or compounds thereof.
