Terracotta Effect Tiles

The terracotta flooring range consists of different tile sizes and formats such as square, brick and hexagon. Terracotta effect tiles are made from porcelain and do not require sealing. A porcelain tile is a man-made product that combines kaolin clay, finely ground sand and feldspar. The clay mixture is fired to an extremely high temperature, resulting in a very dense tile that benefits from a low water absorption rate.

The word ‘terracotta’ in Italian is translated as ‘baked earth’; terracotta tiles are made of clay with a reddish brown hue that is fired to an extremely high temperature, resulting in a warm toned tile with a rustic appearance. The process involves the terracotta clay being prepped, shaped, dried, and fired. The tiles can then be glazed to achieve different colours or finishes or left unglazed for a natural earth ware look.

How to clean terracotta tiles?

How to clean terracotta tiles? When it comes to cleaning terracotta tiles, it is important to vacuum or sweep any dirt or dust when the surface is dry. Natural terracotta flooring will require sealing and resealing, its worth spot cleaning any spillage as and when they occur. You can also occasionally mop using a stone friendly cleaner diluted in warm water, such as Lithofin Wash & Clean. Never use any acidic or abrasive cleaners for natural terracotta as this may strip the sealant on the tiles.

Terracotta effect porcelain tiles are very easy to clean and maintain. We recommend the same steps of vacuuming and sweeping any dirt or dust when the tiles are dry, as well as occasional mopping. Porcelain does not need sealing and is much more resistant to staining. Most household cleaners can be used, but we recommend using a porcelain friendly cleaner such as Lithofin Conditioning Cleaner.
