There are many benefits to ceramic tile flooring. It is a beautiful, durable option for your home. Additionally, ceramic tile flooring is very low-maintenance and is relatively easy to keep looking nice. It is also a particularly easy surface to keep clean.
It is important to sweep your tile floors regularly. Dirt and grit build-up can scratch the surface of the tile. Additionally, you will need to clean up spills immediately, before they have the opportunity to stain the flooring, because these stains can be tricky to remove. Mopping will help clean the floor, as well as provide a glossier surface. It will also be important to dry the tiles after mopping to prevent water spots from occurring.
Grout is the substance that holds the tiles together. It is a very porous substance, so it can become dirtied very easily. Dirty grout can cause the entire floor to look grimy. Sealing the grout can increase its resistance to dirt. It is recommended to seal your grout twice a year.
To clean dirty grout, there are multiple options for cleaning solution. You can mix a solution that is equal parts hydrogen peroxide and water or you can use baking soda combined with water. Use a toothbrush to apply the mixture and scrub the grout.
When mopping, if you don’t want to use harsh chemicals on your flooring, you can mix warm water with white vinegar or lemon juice. This will help clean the tile, as well as remove stains.
