Default How to care for avaire once installed

We are interested in re-doing the kitchen, dining room and entry with your product. I have read so much and am convinced this is what I would like to have installed. However, once it has been installed, how is it to be cared for, regarding cleaning etc.. Also, how will would it stand up to the entry area of the home considering the amount of traffic that would be coming in and out there?
Please let me know when you are able.
Thank you.

Thank you for your interest in Avaire!

An Avaire floor can be cleaned with the same typical household cleaners you would use on a more traditional porcelain tile floor. Because Avaire uses a quality glazed porcelain tile, even a damp mop will handle most routine cleaning.

Avaire should perform well in your entry-way. You'll want to let the Avaire Flexible Grout cure for at least three days before you expose the area to much mositure/dirt/grim. Since entryways can track in alot of moisture and dirt, I would definitely recommend finishing the perimeter (between the tile and the wall/doorway) with a quality caulk. As with any tile (or any flooring product frankly), the surface finish will last longer if gritty materials like sand and gravel are cleaned off promptly.

Good luck with your Avaire floor! Please send us pictures when its finished!
