Cleaning ceramic & porcelain tile

  1. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove excess dust.
  2. Wet the surface with clean water so that the grout is covered and protected from the corrosive action of the detergent (FILA DETERDEK).
  3. Dilute FILA DETERDEK detergent in water (1L of product: 5L of water). Spread the solution over a small area at a time, wait 2 to 3 minutes, then clean with a mop.
  4. Use a nylon brush to remove excess grout and dirt from the surface.
  5. Rinse the surface 2 to 3 times with clean hot water to neutralize the action of the detergent.
  6. Use FILA CLEANER detergent, then rinse with warm water and wipe.


Routine maintenance

  1. Remove dirt with a brush, dry cloth or a vacuum cleaner.
  2. To remove dirt from the surface, wipe with a damp cloth or remove stains with FILA CLEANER.
  3. Rinse all surfaces with clean warm water.


  1. FILA CLEANER : Cleans all types of floors and surfaces. Essential for washing natural stone floors after being laid, particularly those with a polished finish that are sensitive to strong detergents
  2. FILA DETERDEK : Removes post-application deposits and building-site dirt. Eliminates saline efflorescence from terracotta and lime-scale from floors, showers and bathroom fittings. Cleans outdoor floors.
  3. FILA PS/87 : When diluted, cleans and removes grease from dirty floors on porcelain, ceramic, natural stone, terracotta and cement. Eliminates pre-treatment residue from polished porcelain tiles.
  4. FUGANET : Thoroughly cleans grout in ceramic tile floors and walls. Suitable for single-fired and double-fired porcelain tiles. Unsuitable for porous surfaces treated with wax. 
  5. FUGAPROOF : Prevents stain absorption. Makes dirt removal easier. Ideal for mosaics. Keeps tile joints looking new for years.
