How to Maintain Your Outdoor Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile is a fantastic option for your outdoor area due to the fact that it’s durable, weather-resistant, and beautiful to boot. However, this does not mean that it doesn’t need regular maintenance. The following are a few helpful tips for caring for outdoor ceramic tile to ensure that your outdoor ceramic tile will last as long as possible:

  • Sweep: Sweep your tile area regularly in order to get rid of loose debris. This is an essential step to take before you clean the tile.
  • Clean: Use a pressure washer for the quickest and easiest way to clean your ceramic tile. If you don’t own a pressure washer, use a water hose and fill it with half a 5-gallon bucket of water. Add just a little bit of liquid dish detergent in with the water. Wet the tile, then use a broom to clean the tile using the solution.
  • Rinse: Use a water hose to rinse the ceramic tile thoroughly.
  • Seal grout: Before applying sealer to your grout lines, allow all the tiles to fully dry.
