Dirty Porcelain Tiles? Protect them with FILASTOP DIRT

protezione-antisporco-gres-strutturato-FILASTOP-DIRTIn this post we will see how to solve the problem of a dirty porcelain tile floor.

Porcelain tiles are one of the materials most used for floors and wall coverings in modern homes, suffice to think of the beautiful floors in wood-effect porcelain tiles or those that reproduce natural stone or terracotta. The success of this material is probably due to the lower laying and treatment costs compared to wooden floors or those in natural stone.

But is it really true that a material like this does not require any kind of maintenance? Despite being considered less delicate than parquet or marble flooring, porcelain tiles, especially textured ones, have a tendency to dirty. Let’s take a look at some useful tips for protecting textured porcelain tiles from dirt and making subsequent cleaning easy.

The surface of this material is very uneven and, precisely because of this, dirt accumulates easily and is not completely removed by normal washing. Result? The floor always looks slightly dirty and stains easily.

filastop-dirt-prodottoTo protect your porcelain tile floor from dirt, you can apply FILASTOP DIRT, the protective barrier against dirt that FILA has conceived specifically for all kinds of textured and unglazed porcelain tiles.

FILASTOP DIRT binds chemically to the material, without creating any kind of surface film and stops dirt from accumulating, making subsequent cleaning and maintenance easier.

  1. I have 2 bathrooms and have installed light porcelain tile floors with a matte finish. They show dirt very easily and the grout is dirty, and it’s only been 3 months since installation. It’s partially my fault for buying a lighter color, but will the Fila products help?
