Plank Tile and Grout are Everywhere
The plank tile and grout craze in Las Vegas, NV is spreading from all the new homes being recently built as well as the folks seeking a wood-look-a-like copy in their existing homes. Most of these styles of plank tile and grout are usually rectangular from small to large. But by far the actual small rectangular type (4″x18″) is the most popular. When combined with the grout joints, the appearance is definitely “wood-like” and authentic, to the touch as well. The colors are light to dark and also the grout is as well.
Common places you’ll find this plank tile are in the kitchen, dining room, foyers, walkways, and entrances. Sometimes I see plank tile on shower walls, fireplaces, exterior walls of homes (new), and accent walls.
Caring for your Wood Look a Like Tile and Grout
As a professional tile and grout cleaning service, I get a lot of services for wood look-alike plank tile for cleaning and sealing. These surfaces get dirtier faster than most other materials due to “too much” grout, trapping grease, and grime trapped in very directional seams of the grout. These wood look-alike floors need annual service mainly from traffic, and I mean everyday traffic. Bare feet and shoes, plus improper chemicals and apparatuses can make this material dirty in a hurry! Most folks aren’t instructed on how to maintain this plank tile, nor do most know if it’s ceramic or porcelain tile. (Could be either)
To keep wood tile and grout in good condition, it’s advisable to clean with a mixture of Blue Dawn and water using a microfiber mop. For larger areas, use a 36″ mop, and for smaller spaces, a 22″ mop works well. When selecting plank tile and grout for installation, opt for neutral colors such as tans and grays. It’s best to avoid dark colors as they can lead to issues like hazing, which results in a powdery appearance. This phenomenon is commonly known as efflorescence. Removing this powdery residue can be challenging, and it often reappears even after cleaning or using a remover.
