Ceramic tile is an attractive and easily maintained option used for flooring in many homes. As it resists the extra wear caused from pets, the long-term durability and other incredible advantages, ceramic is ideal. Also, this man-made tile material is good in high-moisture areas and even high-traffic areas with water resistance. When finished with an abrasive glaze, ceramic tile is slip resistant. Ceramic will not fade from direct sunlight, unlike other options. Shaped and fired in a kiln, ceramic tiles are derived from the right mixture of sand, clay and natural products. They are offered unglazed, though most people prefer glazed tiles. Today, we at Silver State Floor Restoration would like to elaborate on how to efficiently clean the ceramic tile and grout in your home or business.
Daily Cleaning Solutions for Ceramic Tile
Using a vacuum with the beater bar off on bare floor setting or sweep the floor to help prevent scratch marks. Be sure to have a walk-off mat in place for both indoor and outdoor use and consider placing a rug in the high traffic areas, and where ceramic tile meets an entrance. Before heading to their destination in the home, ensure to have the family to wipe their feet.
Weekly Ceramic Tile Care
The ceramic tiles need to be washed down after the daily sweeping. Prepare a bucket of hot water and a small dose of mild dish detergent to gently mop the tile. Experts recommend the use of s trip mop head to clean the floors since sponge mops have a tendency to push the grime into the grout. Be sure to change the solution when the water looks cloudy or dirty. Otherwise, glazing the surface will be a dull-gray residue. Wipe the excess water dry with a clean, dry towel after you have completely mopped the ceramic tile floor. With a damp cloth treated from the hot water and mild dish detergent treat any spills immediately.
In tandem with any kind of tile as it holds the tile in place, it is important to know that grout needs to be sealed. The grout needs to be equally kept in order for the tile to look good, and grout is especially porous. Due to the porous nature of grout stains and dinginess are inevitable. The grout should be sealed to resist staining and discoloration.
