Tile floor cleaning basics
Tile flooring is a great choice when you’re looking to protect the areas of your house that might be exposed to water from time to time. That’s why kitchens and bathrooms are perfect for tile floors. Just like anything else, your tile needs to be properly maintained and cleaned to keep it looking like new for years to come. Here are the steps for basic tile floor cleaning. This should be done daily.
Step 1, Sweep or vacuum the floor
This will remove any loose dirt, food crumbs, and whatever other debris that might collect on your tile floor. If you allow dirt to sit in wet places it can become very hard to remove. That is why it is very important to clean your floors daily. After you sweep or vacuum your floors, run a dry cloth duster or dust mop over the tile once more.
Step 2. Mop the floor with warm water
Remember, this cleaning method is only for basic maintenance cleaning. If your floor has stains and require heavy cleaning then you will need to refer to this article.
For daily cleaning, running a damp mop over your tile floors is adequate enough to keep them clean. Be sure to cleanse the mop in fresh warm water after mopping each section of the floor.
Step 3. Dry the floor
After you have finished mopping, it’s important to run a dry and clean mop over the floor to prevent new dirt from accumulating and staining your grout.
BONUS Tip for daily cleaning
Dealing with spills- if you spill any kind of liquid on your tile floor even water, be sure to clean it up right away. The longer it sits, the longer it has to soak into the grout of your tile and will stain your grout.
Dealing with stained spills- If drop any food especially raw meat on the floor, be sure to clean it up with disinfectant spray. Limit the amount of disinfectant spray used because the strong chemicals could possible degrade or stain your tile flooring.
It’s very important to maintain and clean your tile if you want it to last long. Unfortunately most of us get caught up with everyday life and don’t have time clean our tile floors daily. This leads to dirty and even damaged tile and grout. When your tile has been neglected it makes it extremely difficult to clean and most of the time it’s best to leave it to a professional to get the job done. Keeping up on your tile will save you the hassle of dealing with the mess and you’ll feel happy knowing you have fresh clean tile floors.
