Proper Maintenance of Your Porcelain Plank Floor



Porcelain plank floors offer the beauty and character of hardwood with greater durability and ease of care. Today, you can have the look of natural wood in rooms where maintaining wood has traditionally been difficult such as a kitchen, bath or mudroom.

The look and style of porcelain planks can range from rustic to refined. And with advancements in digital printing technology, the degree of realism that can be achieved is absolutely amazing. Now, your tile floor can mimic the appearance of oak, knotty pine, cherry, maple or just about any wood species.

Keep it (Looking) Real

But there’s one thing that can spoil the illusion of an actual wood floor — dingy grout lines. Besides looking ugly, improperly sealed grout can harbor dirt and bacteria that your kids and pets could come in contact with daily. With porcelain planks becoming more common in more areas of the home, knowing proper cleaning practices is a must.

Another illusion spoiler is grout that contrasts too strongly with the wood-tone color of your tiles. After all, an actual wood floor doesn’t use grout. As a general rule, keep the grout color close to or a little darker than the tiles to keep everything looking realistic. But what if it’s too late — your floor is down and the grout is calling undue attention to itself? No worries! We can change the color of your existing grout and blend it with the rest of your porcelain plank floor.
