Among the many technical qualities of porcelain stoneware, which guarantee its excellent durability over time, is its stain resistance and how easy it is to clean.
In the kitchen, oil, wine and coffee do not leave irremovable marks on porcelain stoneware floors. In the bathroom, perfumes, creams and nail varnish do not stick to or stain the surfaces.
In addition, organic substances and bacteria, which cause allergies and illnesses, cannot build up on ceramic granite, and strong detergents and disinfectants can be used on it without damaging the material.
There are three different types of cleaning operations for porcelain stoneware.
Post-laying cleaning is obligatory after on-site works in order to immediately remove the grouting used on the joints without leaving marks.
It is essential to dissolve and remove these residues completely, using buffered acids diluted in water, which must then be removed completely and quickly, rinsing the floor with plenty of water to avoid residue or drops on the floor which could damage the tiles.
We suggest performing a preliminary wash on a sample surface of a few square meters; if the test is successful, extend cleaning over the entire surface.
For routine cleaning, Mirage recommends the use of bleach or ammonia, suitably diluted in water; for polished porcelain stoneware, dry the floor after washing to prevent unsightly smudges.
We strongly advise against the use of waxes, oily soaps, impregnating products and various treatments (water and oil repellent) on the porcelain stoneware product, as their application is unnecessary. As is often the case in certain off-the-shelf detergents, they contain waxes and gloss, with additives which, after various washes, can deposit a bright coat on the floor.
It is also important to point out that Hydrofluoric acid (HF) and its derivatives can irredeemably damage porcelain stoneware.
In the case of particular and/or particularly stubborn stains, we advise you to use specific detergents (as better indicated in this table).
Moreover, please remember that removing any type of stain is easier if it is removed while still fresh. It is important to always run a preventive test before using detergent products, especially for lapped or smoothed porcelain stoneware.
Floors and wall coverings come in many styles and materials, so knowing the technical characteristics represent a crucial aspect to consider, as well as finding the best-looking product to define the style of your home or any other commercial spaces.
In this years, porcelain stoneware is becoming a major trend in interior design and the first choice over other traditional flooring products, for many valuable reasons: it is a compact, resistant, material with virtually no porosity, and therefore absorbs almost no water, ideal for any settings condition.
But why choose Mirage porcelain stoneware?
Mirage uses innovative technology to produce unique ceramic tiles, avoiding the repetitive textures
and replicated effects typical of more traditional decorated ceramics.
Each tile has its own unique identifying features and meets the criteria for innovative architecture with its ability to combine esthetics and technological performance. Mirage has installed over 130 million square meters of ceramic slabs throughout the world, a guarantee of the quality of its versatile, high-performance porcelain stoneware.
This material is able to match any aesthetic or technological requirement and has gained a great deal of recognition.
