Ceramic tiles are a durable, practical addition to a home that are simple to maintain. These tiles come in a variety of textures, patterns, sizes and glaze types. Built-up dirt, mold, mildew and hard-water stains can dull the surface of ceramic tiles. Regularly cleaning and maintaining ceramic tiles can restore their shine. Use only proper cleaning products on ceramic tiles, as some cleaners can scratch the finish of tiles or discolour the grout.
