If you have ceramic tiles at home, in this blog post, we will explain to you what the best methods are to keep your tiles in perfect condition. Keep in mind that you can always contact a tile cleaning service to do the job for you.
Ceramic tiles make your floor look very elegant and at the same time, they are very easy to maintain, for regular cleaning, just sweep them with a soft broom or a vacuum cleaner. Dirt adheres easily to the surface, specially to tiles with textured surface; regular sweeping removes most dirt. Once you have swept the surface, mop it using a manufacturer-recommended special grout and tile cleaning detergent. To clean stubborn dirt, use a damp sponge and the same tile cleaning detergent.
If the tiles we need to clean are very dirty, then use a mild scrubbing sponge or a soft brush. First, apply a mild detergent while scrubbing, and rinse thoroughly with clean water. If necessary, wipe the tile with a dry towel to remove any soap residue. If you don’t have special tile cleaning products at home, you can always use an all-purpose cleaner or even liquid soap. For large surfaces, we recommend you contact a tile cleaning service, for professional results.
Here are some ceramic tile cleaning dos and don’ts — do remember that ceramic tile is very durable, but it is not indestructible, so be careful when cleaning if you don’t want to end up with a crack or chip in your tile. Don’t use bleach or ammonia to clean your ceramic tile, these products can discolor your grout if you use them frequently. Do clean up a spill as quickly as possible to avoid getting your grout stained. Remember, you can always contact a professional tile cleaning service to help you with the cleaning.
