Spots only when wet?

This question is from Metro Charcoal 12 in. x 24 in. Glazed Porcelain Floor and Wall Tile (16 sq. ft. / case)

Love the look of this tile but after buying a case noticed a pattern of spots on just about all the tiles only when wet. Just wondering if this is some kind of glue residue from packing or something worse? It doesn't show when dry but am very concerned about the quality if I am seeing this odd pattern? I want to make sure there isn't a bigger problem before buying mass quantities of this tile.

Can this tile (12" x 24") be set in a herringbone pattern?

We just picked up 30 cases of this tile and my husband noticed on the box it has a warning to avoid using a 50% offset. The salesperson did not inform us of this, if it is in fact an issue. Thank you...

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. In general 1/3rd offset pattern is suggested to minimize lip page as per ASTM standards. It is recommended that a professional installer be consulted to check if the herringbone pattern installation result would be satisfactory for this particular installation.

Answer: 
I use this tile in many projects, and I always set it in offset patterns.
However, you should understand the reason for the warning about a herringbone pattern.
Ceramic tile is made from clay. When it's fired in a kiln, the clay shrinks and warps slightly. This is especially true for large, cheap tiles like these.
Inspect these tiles closely, and you'll notice that they're slightly domed. If you Read More

However, you should understand the reason for the warning about a herringbone pattern.
Ceramic tile is made from clay. When it's fired in a kiln, the clay shrinks and warps slightly. This is especially true for large, cheap tiles like these.
Inspect these tiles closely, and you'll notice that they're slightly domed. If you set them in a 50% offset, they'll align in a pattern that makes the curvature especially obvious.
In some applications, this matters. For example, it'd be especially noticeable on a countertop. But on the floor or in a shower, it may not be a concern.
If you're new to setting tile, you should do a trial layout with your tile to see how it looks before you install it with thinset. If the curvature is an issue, consider laying it with a 1/3 offset. I usually do this, and nobody but me ever notices the curvature. Read Less

Answer: 
It should be laid with a 1/3 offset, but can be laid in different patterns vertically or horizontally, as long as the offset is followed.

Answer: 
Yes, you can use a steam mop on this tile. It's porcelain tile, so it's tough. You can walk on it, you can steam it, you can put it in a shower and get it soaking wet. Pets can p-e-e on it. It won't be harmed.
As a general rule, you can use a steam mop on any ceramic tile, unless it's hand-painted and clearly intended to be decorative only.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 214 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Looking Tile The color of this tile matches greys and browns including tans. I used Dolorian Gray as the grout and it turned out pretty amazing. I could have gone darker with the grout as well. This was perfect for my bathroom, even the dog loves it! August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Metro Charcoal tile This is pretty decent product. I only had one tile that was cracked and two tiles with very tiny chips out of 15 boxes. I switched them out at the store without a problem. The tile is smooth to walk on and has a matte finish. The color is tricky to explain though because it depends on the light. In pictures, it either shows up very light or dark and it's hard to get an accurate representation of the color. There are beige tones in it. If you're looking for complete gray and a little darker, go with the Metro Gris. I liked Metro Charcoal because it's a little lighter and more neutral. We initially used a lighter gray grout (Poly Blend Natural Gray) but it was nearly the same color tone, so it just blended in with the tile. The grout dried with uneven colors including white, so we changed grout colors before finishing. We switched to TEC Power Grout in Charcoal gray and that dried with consistent color, and the contrast against the tile looks much better. We have only had it installed a few days but I can see where others are coming from with it showing spots easily although we haven't really had any trouble cleaning it. You would probably run into the same probably with a light tile or a dark one, so it's probably not a problem specific to this tile. I also agree that the tiles are not all uniform in size and thickness, so some areas of the floor might not be completely flat, but I assume this is the case for other tile. I will provide an update in a few months to say how it's holding up. August 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful tile, color different than appears beautiful tile. Looks great in our kitchen, we originally got the "gray" which is SUPER light in person and returned it for the "black" which is a darker, charcoal color and more what we were looking for. June 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nothing not to like Nothing not to like about this tile except for the cost dropped 2 weeks after i bought it. But oh well even at the old price it was a bargain for the quality of tile. I love the different colors that I can pick up due to the vertical line colors that make up the tile. My contractor was also impressed with the squareness of overall size and ease to lay. He seemed to really like the tile. The photo I'm attaching is obviously unfinished but even without grout it looks great. April 7, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Does not clean I have family that previously owned a flooring company. They recommended using vinegar and water to clean the tile. We've tried everything from drying the tile after washing, to a steam cleaner and NOTHING gets the "footprints" smudging off the floor. It NEVER looks clean. We wanted something that looked clean and was easy to maintain. So disappointed in this tile. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home Upgrade Love my new floors! Easy to maintain as well. Replaced tile in entrance, kitchen, nook, two bathrooms, and laundry room. All looks great! March 15, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sleek Modern Tile Great product and looks very high end! Priced right and fairly easy to install by the above average DIY'er. August 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Looking Tile We used this tile in a bathroom in a guest house on the floor and shower - the large tile looks great - very pleased with look/performance. August 2, 2016
