Spot Clean Tile Floors
Spills happen all the time. Whether it is that you spilled your coffee, the kids spilled their milk, or there is paint on the floor. No matter what the spill is, it is easier to clean it up on the spot than it is to let it stay there and become a stain on your tile and grout. If you do find yourself finding a stain from a spill. Then you can always spot clean. Get warm water and scouring powder and spread it on the stain. Let it sit on the stain for 5 to 10 minutes then scrub the area with a brush. If the stain still won’t come off because it is a little stubborn then repeat the process. Doing spot cleaning can help keep your tile and grout looking good.
Regular Tile Cleaning
To keep your floors clean you need to do regular cleaning. Even though it can seem like a tiresome job, cleaning your floors regularly is not as hard as you think. Get out your dust mop or broom and sweep your floors daily. This will help remove dirt and dust that can get onto your floors. This will also help that dirt and dust from getting down inside your grout. Once your floors are clean from dust and dirt, you should mop your floors with warm water. You can mop about once a week. Once you have mopped your floors make sure you dry them immediately. This will help avoid mold and mildew growth and it will help keep dirt from sticking to your wet floors.
Deep Tile Cleaning
Sometimes you need to deep clean your floors a little more than just sweeping and mopping. Grease can often get on your tile when you are cooking. You don’t want to leave grease on your tile so how do you get rid of it? It is quite simple; you can mix your dish detergent in water and mop the tiles. This can help get rid of the grease. You can also get half a cup of white vinegar to 1 gallon of warm water and this will mop the grease right up.
If your grout is dirty then it can make your tile also look dirty. One very simple way you can clean your grout is to make a paste of baking soda and water. Put the paste on your grout. Let it sit overnight, then use a brush to scrub the grout. After wash it away with warm water and dry it. It is a very simple way to clean your grout and make your floor shine again.
