To maintain encaustic cement tile, regularly clean the tiles with acid-free, pH neutral detergent. A natural patina is expected to develop over time as the floor begins to wear and age. Water spotting can be avoided with a regular cleaning routine, which includes resealing the floor every two to three years, depending on the conditions of wear. With interior high traffic areas and commercial spaces, discuss applying a topical sealer with your installer. We recommend Fila Surface Solutions Matt Wax sealer to bead water and provide an extra protection layer to the surface of the tile.
