Floor Tiles Cleaning Process
Tile floors are durable and perfect flooring options for areas where water is often used such as bathrooms, laundry facilities, or kitchens. Whether the tile is ceramic, porcelain, or stone, proper cleaning will help the floor to look better and last longer. Since we as a company focus on nature, health, and ecology, we will also propose the same treatments for cleaning tiles.
Simple but practical
A bathroom is definitely not only the kitchen but also a location in the home where the highest degree of hygiene is expected. The first requirement for easy, efficient everyday cleanliness is met by installing ceramic tiles, which are the most common option for lining walls and floors in those rooms. The concept is: Do not use offensive and abrasive agents when cleaning tiles. This prevents scratches on the tiles’ surface, particularly those with a glossy glaze. Also, the use of a cleaner containing oils is not recommended because they can leave deposits on tiles.
How to clean tile floors?
Your tile floor cleaning schedule will depend on how much traffic is going through the rooms. Of course, prompt cleaning of spills from food or other items should be handled.
For most of us, every few days the floors are to be swept or vacuumed. This will remove the grit which scratches the floor and helps prevent the build-up of hair and dust in corners and grout lines. To avoid build-up of grime, floors should be mopped regularly.
Most ceramic and natural stone tiles are scratch-resistant, spills quickly clean away and come in designer choices that suit any decoration.
What things do You Need?
⦁ For ceramic tile floors: all-purpose commercial cleaner or dishwasher liquid
⦁ For natural tile floors in stone: Non-acidic, alkaline cleaner
⦁ Baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, or bleach powder with oxygen
⦁ Broom, dry dust mop or vacuum
⦁ Wet mop
⦁ Stiff-bristled brush
⦁ Two buckets
- Ride the Loose Dirt
- Ever start with sweeping, vacuuming, or dry dust mopping the ground to remove grit and loose dirt.
- Clean and Stained Grout
- Although tiles are generally acidic and alkali resistant, this may not be the case with joints. They can also be damaged by the use of a steam cleaner, so it is necessary to choose a cleaning agent that protects the groove at the same time. Try the following ‘formula’ for the shine of the tiles and the integrity and protection of the joints: dissolve half a case of baking soda in seven hours of water, add one-third of a case of lemon juice, and one-quarter of an alcoholic vinegar. Using a sponge or brush to clean the joints, and you can use the tiles to give a fresh shine. Efficient, like industrial cleaners, but incomparably more suitable for the budgets of safety, the environment, and home.
- Wet Mop Cleaning
- Always remember to use the appropriate cleaner for your tile floor type if you buy one at the store and follow the directions of the package on how to mix with water. Remember, it is usually a good choice to use less clean; excess product on the floor leaves it feeling sticky, and attracts even more land.
- On the other hand, we have a few tips you can follow if you want to use more natural ingredients.
- These ingredients can be found in every kitchen, and they are all you’ll need to keep your bathroom hygiene naturally. Alcoholic vinegar is a universally useful cleanser that does away with grease stains and stubborn limescale but also counteracts odors. Vinegar can be used on anything but stone and marble surfaces, in combination with lemon juice and salt.
- The universal bathroom cleaner, which also kills bacteria, can be prepared in a spray bottle by adding 1/3 of vinegar, 10-15 drops of essential oil from the lavender and tea tree, a little liquid detergent, and filling the rest with water.
- Baking soda is their abrasive agent that perfectly cleans and leaves a fresh scent. Baking soda, dissolved in warm water, is the best option for hygienically clean floors, toilets, but also for buckets, shower curtain, mirror … Lemon juice is versatile-whitens, disinfects, dissolves limescale, and leaves a fresh fragrance so you can use it in the bathroom without restriction.
- Rinse your ground
- Rinse the mop well after mopping with the cleaning solution, and use plain water to rinse away any residual soapy residue. Let air dry.
