Non slip porcelain kitchen floor tiles
« on: November 20, 2023, 10:44:22 pm »
Popped over from the window cleaning section for some advice. Weíve recently done a house extension and have put large 1200x600 non slip porcelain tiles  in the kitchen and sun room. They are textured and are an absolute nightmare to clean.  Dirt and light stains are very difficult to remove. Can anyone recommend a product that will work on these tiles?

Thanks Smudger but I donít want to put out that kind of money for a machine. It was more a cleaning product I was looking for. Think itís a case of getting on the hands and knees with a soft scrubbing brush and cleaning solution for the worst bits😩

After they are cleaned can they be sealed to stop them absorbing the dirt again ?..

Hello this is Kevin's son (Antony) he passed away on 10th November.

Anyway your issue will mainly be due to the finish of the porcelain you can obviously naturally clean it with something like Faber Deterfug or change the profile to make it easier to maintain

ABR 600 if its matt finish if it's polished then

Porcelain Restoration cream which can then be aded to for a higher polished finish like star shine easy

You can't seal porcelain because they're non porous so won't absorb a sealant

My tiles are matte porcelain so they are porous.

I took your advice and sealed the tiles with SmartSeal porcelain sealer. The hard part was cleaning the tiles, I actually used no nonsense grime remover and a soft scrubbing brush. This was both hard work and time consuming. The sealer went on a treat, it has left a soft sheen finish which has enhanced the tiles. More importantly it has made them easy to clean with a steam mop👍🏻
