How To Maintain Glass Subway Tilesby Lisa C. Marketing Writer
Glass subway tiles are classic tiles with a glossy twist. Made from glass with an additional glossy, shiny reflect, glass subway tiles have managed to emerge as one of the most in-demand materials for indoor walls.
On the whole, the cleaning and maintenance of glass tiles is a simple job. However, it is a completely different but careful approach.
If you have them installed at your home, this article underlines some of the most useful tips for the easy maintenance of glass subway tile. Check out the following subsections –
Stubborn Stain Removal
Glass subway tiles have a smooth surface. Slippery is common on these surfaces (but, we are not talking about its disadvantages here). That said, stains aren’t actually a big situation here with glass subway tiles.
Use a soft, damp cloth piece and rub it on the stains. You will notice that they have disappeared. If the stains are still there, you could use lukewarm water to dampen the cloth piece.
No Sealant Required
Unlike natural stones, glass tiles do not require you to apply sealant every year in order to enhance their shine and performance. It is a non-porous surface that is already smooth. There is no possibility of dust, debris, fluids entering the pores and creating a messy outlook.
Glass subway tiles are anti-scratch surfaces that technically do not scratch. That’s how these products are sold. While this is true that glass subway tile has scratchproof surface, it is never recommended to use sharp and pointed objects such as knife, nails, screwdrivers, drill, etc. directly on the tile surface.
Do not Use Cheap Products
Extreme heat can damage the form of the glass tile. However, since it is one of the commonly used products for kitchen counter and backsplash, it is advised not to buy cheap quality products as they may perform to your expectations.
Above all, you will need to make sure that your glass subway tiles are installed correctly using the right adhesive, grout, tools and techniques.
