Mosaic tiles in the bathroom, are they high maintenance?

I have been wanting to update the look of my shower interior in our master bathroom. I am very much interested in the look of the mosaic tiles but worry about the upkeep they may need. Are mosaic tiles high maintenance? What kinds of products are available to ensure I keep the tiles looking their best?  Does Interstone offer some tips on maintenance and upkeep as part of the product selection process?

You did not say which kind of mosaics you plan to use:  Marble, Travertine, or Glass / Ceramic.  If it is glass, you can clean it with just about anything but if it is natural stone only use warm water and a mild detergent or else it may etch.  You should also follow up by cleaning it with proper natural stone cleaner once a week to protect your investment, whether it is countertop, floor, or backsplash.  Also, if your tile is natural stone, you should seal it periodically, especially in the high traffic areas.  This also makes it easier to clean.  Here at Interstone Marble and Granite suggest and provide Fila brand cleansers and sealers that are easy to use and are cost-effective.
