Hydraulic Tile Maintenance Tips

For Proper Maintenance of Hydraulic Tiles


  • We recommend cleaning the mosaic floor with neutral soaps and water.

General Tips:

  • Hydraulic mosaic flooring is very durable and requires little maintenance, but some precautions should be taken:
    • Never use strong detergents or acids.

Maintenance of Hydraulic Flooring

Routine Care:

  • Periodically add a cap of wax to the water to maintain the optimal condition of the hydraulic mosaic floor.
  • Follow the same procedure for old floors.
  • Always use cleaning products with a neutral pH.
  • Polish the floor at least once a year.
  • Use a mop for daily maintenance.
  • Immediately clean up spills of coffee, sodas, and oils.
  • Avoid dragging furniture or metal objects across the floor.

Durability of Hydraulic Tiles

Indoor Hydraulic Tiles:

  • The durability of this type of material has always been one of its main characteristics. An indoor tile can last a lifetime, as seen in historic buildings in Barcelona with hydraulic floors over 100 years old.

Factors affecting durability include:

  • The quality of the pigments used.
  • Proper installation and the use of layers to resist liquid penetration.
  • The quality of materials; noble materials can last a lifetime, while others may need replacement every 30 years.

Outdoor Hydraulic Tiles:

  • Outdoor tiles face climatic elements such as rain, sun, and hail, leading to more wear compared to indoor tiles.
  • Color loss due to sunlight, especially blues and greens, depends on pigment quality.
  • While outdoor hydraulic tiles are less durable than indoor ones, their lifespan depends on their location and the local climate.

Extending the Lifespan of Hydraulic Tiles


  • Proper use and cleaning with suitable products can extend the life of hydraulic tiles.
  • Good waterproofing prevents stains and makes cleaning easier.
  • Professional restoration can also extend their lifespan by removing impurities and restoring shine.


  • The weight the tiles will bear; heavier weights require more robust materials.
  • Proper cleaning is crucial for long-term preservation, even though hydraulic tiles are generally low maintenance.

Hydraulic Tile Treatments

Old Tiles:

  • Over time, old hydraulic tiles lose their shine. Treating them can restore their natural beauty and protect them with a new seal.

New Tiles:

  • New hydraulic floors, especially in professional settings like restaurants or public spaces, should be treated with fine diamond packs and sealed by a professional for a matte or glossy finish, as per customer preference.

Additional Tips for Mosaic Hydraulic Floors

Thorough Cleaning:

  • Avoid aggressive products for deep cleaning. Use a floor cleaning machine with a neutral pH soap and a microfiber cloth or pad.


  • After installation, sealing is crucial to prevent dirt and stains from penetrating the porous surface of hydraulic tiles.

Daily Cleaning:

  • Perform regular cleaning to prevent dirt from embedding in the floor. Use a neutral pH cleaner diluted in water, applied with a mop.
