Porcelain tiles, features and how to clean it

Porcelain tiles is a type of ceramic tile composed of a mixture of clay, feldspar, and quartz. It is known for its durability, stain and scratch resistance, and low porosity, which makes it resistant to moisture and bacteria.

Porcelain tiles are also known for their high level of hardness and wear resistance, making them suitable for high-traffic areas such as commercial and public buildings, as well as residential spaces. They are available in a wide range of colors, patterns, and finishes, making them versatile and suitable for a wide range of styles and designs.  

Porcelain tiles can be cleaned with mild detergent and warm water, and it is recommended to avoid the use of abrasive detergents or scrubbers, as they can scratch the surface of the tile.  

For stubborn stains, a mixture of baking soda and water can be used as a paste and then rubbed with a damp cloth. For daily cleaning, you can use a wet mop or cloth to remove dirt and dust. We also recommend sealing porcelain tiles to protect it from stains and facilitate the cleaning.
