Tile Tips


Your tile surfaces have been restored with the most advanced process available for ceramic tile. With proper maintenance, your tile surfaces will retain their "like new" appearance for many years to come.

To help you maximize your investment, we have prepared this for you and your maintenance personnel as a reference.

Elite's Grout cleaning and sealing system provides a protective shield to your grout making them non-porous, easy to clean and resistant to future embedded contamination. Elite Carpet & Tile ensures the continuous sanitation and brilliance of your grouted surfaces through our Maintenance Service Plan.

Caring For Tile Your Floor

Sweep or vacuum loose dust and debris from floor before mopping.
Use a Neutral Cleaner* for daily mopping.
After applying cleaner, rinse floor thoroughly with clean water.
Rinse mops and change the rinse water frequently.
Have Elite's Maintenance Service Plan performed as necessary.
