Tile floors look great and can be easy to care for, but you have to maintain the flooring and clean it properly for it to maintain its luster. Check out this great tile cleaning video to learn tips and tricks to make projects simpler.
First, check out the grout lines around the tiles that need cleaning. Usually, the thinner the grout lines, the easier the tile is to clean. But, thick grout can be dealt with as well.
With tile and grout cleaning, it’s important to apply the cleaning solution and let it soak for a while before the actual cleaning process begins. After the solution has been set on the tile for a while, it’s time to start scrubbing. It’s especially important to do some extra scrubbing in high traffic areas and in the grout lines. After successfully scrubbing the tile, it’s time to rinse the grime and dirt away. Some tile flooring will have to be rinsed several times to remove the cleaning solution, grime, or debris. After rinsing, allow the tile to dry, and apply sealant. Sealant makes the tile stay brighter longer and reduces the frequency of deep cleaning.
