Three cleaning tips for ceramic tile flooring

Three cleaning tips for ceramic tile flooring

Ceramic tile flooring is straightforward to clean. Like all flooring, though, it needs proper maintenance. 

When taken care of properly, tile flooring can last for decades. Here are some tips to keep your tile floors clean and shiny.

Sweep often

Regular maintenance is the most critical factor in good maintenance. Therefore, sweep or vacuum several times a week before mopping.

Dirt and sand are sharp and can scratch the floors. Remember, too, that grout is absorbent and stains easily–which will always make the floor look dingy.

Wipe spills immediately. It's much more challenging to remove set stains on ceramic tile.

The dos and don’ts of mopping

Don't use abrasive tools or cleaners; they scratch the tile.  

Use a mild detergent, chamois, or microfiber cloth; sponge mops push dirt into grout and stain.

You can also make your cleaning solution with lemon juice or white wine vinegar mixed with hot water. 

Do remember, though, cleaning isn't a one-size deal. Since porcelain is a type of ceramic, its cleaning requirements are the same as ceramic. However, non-ceramics, like natural stone tile, have different needs.

If you have questions, always seek the advice of flooring experts when shopping at our tile store in North Las Vegas, NV, or Lake Havasu City, AZ.

Keep grout clean!

Clean your grout regularly so dirt won't build up. Many good commercial products are on the market, but you can also make your own.

Combine ½- a cup of baking soda, ¼-cup hydrogen peroxide, and a teaspoon of dish detergent for stubborn stains. Let sit for five to 10 minutes, then scrub with a toothbrush.
