Caring for Your Ceramic Tile Floors

Whether you have a ceramic tile floor installed in your home or you use ceramic tile for commercial flooring purposes, you will need to maintain it regularly to keep it looking its best. Ceramic floor tile in NYC is easy to clean as long as you are willing to do it properly. Here are some tips that will make the job simpler for you.

Sweep or vacuum your ceramic tile often

One of the biggest benefits of using a ceramic tile floor in your home or for your commercial flooring needs is that you can see when it needs to be swept or vacuumed. When you notice dirt, dust, and debris building up, vacuum it away to prevent it from getting into your tile’s grout. You should make an effort to do this every day, if possible.

Clean ceramic tile with a mop as needed

While you can sweep or vacuum away loose dirt and debris, you will also need to use a mop to clean your ceramic tiles. If you see that your floor is beginning to look dull, use a mild detergent and clean water to mop it. Use a rag mop instead of a sponge mop to get the best results. You can also use fresh lemon juice to remove any soapy residue that remains on your ceramic tile floor after it is cleaned.

Remove stains from grout

The most important part of cleaning ceramic floor tile is keeping the grout looking great. Grout is porous, so it stains easily. To keep it clean, create a paste made of baking soda and water. Apply the paste to your grout, let it sit for about eight hours, and then scrub it clean with a nylon brush. You should also consider sealing your grout so that it doesn’t get stained again in the future.
