Terracotta Floor. How To Clean Terracotta Tiles

They look gorgeous but they need a bit of tender loving care to last.

Terracotta tiles are porous, and without adequate sealing will soak up every speck of grime in your kitchen. Take advice when you buy the tiles about the best sealants and cleaners for the floor.

Bear in mind that for the first year after they've been put down, they'll mature - and this ageing cannot be removed with any cleaners.

Always check manufacturer's instructions first. Always try a test patch first. If you are unsure as to whether the item you are cleaning is suitable for our instructions, take professional cleaning advice first.
