Keep your installation looking great with a ceramic tile floor cleaner

When it comes to durable, versatile flooring, it’s hard to beat a beautiful ceramic or porcelain installation. Not only is it perfect for bathrooms and kitchens, countertops, and backsplashes, but even entryways and mudrooms make for ideal locations as well. In general, tiles are easy to maintain, but you do need to stick to certain methods of cleaning to ensure your installation lasts for a long time. By adhering to the following guidelines, you’re sure to enjoy your floors for years to come.

Eliminate scratches with regular sweeping

Although these floors are truly hard-wearing, they can get scratched if improperly maintained. Regular sweeping removes debris and dirt that sits on the surface, removing the possibility of marring the ceramic or porcelain. In entryways, further, minimize the chance of scratches by installing indoor and outdoor mats and requesting visitors to remove their footwear.

Weekly washing with mild soap

Once a week, clean your installation with a mix of warm water and mild dish soap. Typically, there’s no need for a stronger product. However, if your floors do indeed need extra attention, then only use a tile-safe cleaner that is approved by your flooring professionals.

Absorb liquid spills quickly

Of course, every household experience occasional liquid spills and messes. Ideally, the moment it happens, absorb the liquid with a paper towel or clean, dry cloth. Afterward, spot clean the area with a water and mild soap mix, ensuring to thoroughly dry up the area when done.

Remove grime from the grout

Depending on how old your grout is, it may be looking a little grimy. Often, all that’s needed to clean it up is some warm water, a bit of mild dish detergent, and a stiff brush. If that doesn’t do the trick, try hydrogen peroxide or a paste made from baking soda and vinegar. After the grime is out, spray on a basic water-and-vinegar solution to prevent other stains.
