Q. How do I care for my Porcelain Tile floor?
A. Porcelain tile is stain-resistant requiring minimal maintenance. Simply wipe up spills with a damp cloth or sponge. Regular cleaning with clear water or a mild detergent is recommended.
Q. What is Shade Variation?
A. Any variation in color or texture from tile to tile.
Q. What is a Moh?
