How to Clean Tile Flooring

If you have discount tile flooring in your home, you know that keeping it clean can be a frustrating matter. You want to keep the surface looking good for years, but you don't want to use a cleaning method that will scuff, scrape or otherwise damage the surface of the tile. Luckily for you, we've compiled the top non-abrasive cleaning methods for high-quality, discount tile flooring. Enjoy!

Sweep Gently
Sweeping regularly is a must, but don't go overboard! Sweep gently and regularly to loosen dirt trapped between tiles. You can also use a vacuum on tile flooring, but make sure it doesn't have a beater bar, as they can dull and scratch the surface of the tile. If you're unsure about your vacuum, either stick with a broom or use the vacuum's handheld attachments.

Use Appropriate Cleaner
Using the manufacturer's recommended tile cleaner is the best way of mopping or washing your discount tile floor. Don't use abrasive scouring powders, steel wool, oil-based cleaners, bleach or ammonia-based cleaners. When mopping, make sure the mop is damp, not wet. If a stain or spot is stubborn, hand wash it with a sponge.

Use Mats and Runners
If you're really concerned about keeping your tile floor look good, place floor mats at all entraceways and lay down runners. This will give people places to clean their dirty shoes before stepping on your beautiful tile.

Weekly Specials At Stone+Wood Outlet

Here at Stone+Wood Outlet, we're always excited to announce our Weekly Specials. This week we're featuring end-of-the-season liquidations on decking materials. For a limited time, Massaranduba and Tigerwood decking material will be offered at greatly reduced prices at Stone+Wood Outlet's three retail locations as well as online at

Massaranduba, also known as Brazilian Redwood, is a very durable, attractive hardwood. The heartwood can range from a beautiful light brown to dark brownish-red and features a wavy, somewhat interlocked grain pattern. The high Janka hardness and density ratings make Massaranduba naturally resistant to damage and decay.

Tigerwood is one of the most distinctive exotic hardwoods available. It is known for its reddish-brown tones and varied black striping. The wavy, irregular grain pattern complements the warm heartwood tones and produces an attractive, eye-catching look. Tigerwood is a favorite choice of decking material because of its inherent resilience.

The current hardwood decking Weekly Specials are as follows:

Massaranduba 1' x 6', was $2.89/LF, now$1.99/LF

Tigerwood 1' x 6', was $3.49/LG, now $2.69/LF
