Italgraniti Group products have a stain-resistant, hygienic, easy-care surface. To ensure these characteristics, it is essential to clean the material thoroughly immediately after installation, removing the cementitious residues that create a film on the product’s surface that may tend to trap dirt.
With normal-setting adhesives, grout the floor after 24/48 hours; with fast-setting adhesives, grout after 4 hours. For polished materials, use cementitious grouts in matching colours; do not use flexible synthetic mortars on these surfaces, especially in contrasting colours. Do not add additives/latex to the grout, as these products make it extremely difficult to remove residues with ordinary cleaning products. If you decide to use a grout which is not recommended, always test it on the material first to check the result.
If the product requires extraordinary cleaning due to particularly stubborn stains, action should be taken as soon as possible, using the specific detergents recommended in the table below:
