Tips on Maintaining Your Tile Art

intro-img1Custom ceramic tiles are a great way to give your home a unique look. Tile art can be hung on the wall, displayed on a desk or mantle, or even installed as part of a mural or custom tile design in a kitchen or outdoor area. The ceramic printing process used at Sun Styles Tile is designed specifically so that the image you get lasts a long time. The colors should not fade or crack even if the tile is exposed to the elements. Keep reading for tips on maintaining your tile art for years to come.

Regular Cleaning

No matter where your custom ceramic tile is, it’s normal for it to accumulate some dust and dirt. You can use a soft cloth for periodic dusting to make sure the image on your tile shines through. Microfiber cloths are a good choice, as there is no risk of them potentially scratching or damaging the surface. Tiles that live outdoors may get a little dirtier than indoor ones, so use a wet cloth with a little bit of mild dish soap for tougher spots. Avoid using any harsh cleansers or abrasive scrubbers for best results.

Display Areas

If your home has children or pets running around, you may want to consider carefully where you display your tile art. Custom memorials in particular should be treated with care, and placed in an area where they are less likely to be knocked over. You can also hang your custom ceramic tiles on the wall, making sure to follow the specific instructions so that there’s little risk of it falling.

Outdoor Use

The custom ceramic tiles printed by Sun Styles are suitable for outdoor use as well as indoor use. They are guaranteed not to fade for 1,000 years, so all you need to do is wipe them down periodically. It’s up to you where you want to place your tiles for maximum effect.
