How To Care for Metal Tile
If you plan on designing with Aluminum Composite Panel Mosaic, it's important to know how to care for it.
After all, metal tiles add a visually striking accent to any design. With proper care and maintenance you can ensure your tiles will impress audiences for years to come.
Please note that the type of care and maintenance will depend on the type of metal wall tile you choose, and the effect you desire.
For example, the patina of copper tile will change depending on exposure to air and moisture unless you seal it. Iron tile will rust unless it’s regularly cared for.
Here are the three steps we recommend.
Step 1: Sealing Your Tile
Only two types of wall tile need to be sealed: iron tiles and copper tiles.
Sealing helps protect the original finish and stops oxidization that will otherwise happen over time as the surface interacts with moisture in the air.
Step 2: Cleaning The Tile
Most metal tiles can be cleaned with warm water and dishwashing detergent.
Step 3: Removing Stains
Metal tile placed near water may develop stains from hard water deposits.
To remove these stains, simply make a paste, using either baking soda and water, or borax and water.
Apply to the entire surface with a cloth (not a brush) then rinse off using warm water and a clean, dry cloth. Repeat if necessary.
