Do tiles with a Slip Resistance need special cleaning?
Tiles with a slip resistance generally have a textured surface. The initial clean is the most important for textured tiles.
24 hours after the grout has dried, tiles should be washed with Lithofin Cement Residue Remover following the instructions on the bottle.
If you notice a dull haze just after your new tiles are laid, or you are finding that your tiles are getting dirty very quickly, don't panic! This may be grout residue and is easily washed off with Lithofin Cement Residue Remover. Check out our handy info on removing grout haze here.
For everyday cleaning, they are just as easy to maintain as non-textured tiles. We recommend Lithofin KF Vitra-Clean with warm water and a damp microfibre mop.
Or for a home-made, everyday, tile cleaning solution try using hot water and a dash of methylated spirits. Avoid soap-based products as they can leave a thin film on the tiles that will attract more dirt.
