When it comes to deep cleaning your tile floor you have two options. You can call the experts to come do it for you or you can attempt to do it yourself. If you are attempting to do it yourself, you want to make sure that you are doing it correctly. If you are adding certain cleaner to your type of tile, it could end up ruining your tile. Following these few tips to clean your tile can help ensure you are cleaning your floors correctly. Silver State Floor Restoration elaborates on this below.
What is the Best Thing to Clean Tiles With?
– Marble or natural stone
Before you start cleaning your tiles, you need to make sure you know what type of tile you are dealing with. If you are cleaning any marble or similar surfaces, then you need to make sure that you avoid anything that is acid-base. If you use acid-based cleaners on marble-type flooring, it will discolor and damage your floor. Instead, apply baking soda and hydrogen peroxide onto the floor with a mop or cleaning cloth. Then you can use a steam mop to disinfect and break away any dust, and dirt.
– Ceramic or porcelain
Marble is not the only type of tile. You could also have ceramic, porcelain, or anything similar to these. If you have this type of floor, then you can use bleach, ammonia, or any other acid cleaners to clean it. If you want to go the natural route, you can do sodium bicarbonate powder, vinegar, or citric acid. These are your best choices for natural cleaners.
How Do I Get My Grout White Again?
The best option to clean your grout is to use bleach. If you would rather go the natural route, then you can use sodium bicarbonate powder or hydrogen peroxide. Both options are great to restore your grout to the original clean color. When you go to clean your grout, you want to use an old toothbrush and apply the mixture thoroughly into the grout and scrub in deep into it. Another option is using the magic eraser. This can also help get the buildup away.
Rinse & Dry Tiles Quickly
After you are done scrubbing your floor, you will need to rinse the entire tile floor. You can do this by simply splashing a bucket of warm water onto your tile until the tile is free of the cleaning solution. You may need to repeat this a few times. After you have rinsed it thoroughly then you can either use an electric fan, mop, or rag to wipe the entire thing dry. You want to make sure that it is completely dry before you step on it. If you don’t, then you can start a whole new set of stains on your floor.
