Congratulations on the purchase of your new Mosaico handmade cement Tiles!

This guide has been created to assist you, in ensuring the best look, results and performance of your tiled surface.

Care & Maintenance

Cleaning your tiles using only recommended products will help to maintain your preferred finish on the tiles, and a long-lasting protection of the sealant. We suggest you re-seal your tiles with a penetrating sealant periodically if foot traffic is intense. If using solid wax, we recommend buffing to remove excess product after application.

We recommend the use of the internationally recognized and specifically formulated products for cement tiles, from the FILA product range, for all stages of the installation and maintenance process.

 For indoor non-wet areas:
  1. After installation, but before grouting, clean tiles with FILACLEANER diluted with water 1:50. Let the tiles dry for 6-8 hours.
  2. Then apply HYDROREP ECO, penetrating green sealer, to reduce the absorption of the tiles. Let it cure for 3-4 hours.
  3. After grouting, apply FILAMP90 ECO PLUS stain-proof sealer for a natural finish or FILASTONE PLUS ECO sealer for a color-enhancing effect. For stain-prone areas we recommend two coats of stain-proofing sealer;
  4. Once the sealant has dried, you can apply two coats of FILANATURWAX followed by buffing to achieve an even satin effect. Ideal for high-traffic areas;
  5. FILAMATT liquid wax can then be used once a week to maintain the satin finish effect.
