How to Keep Your Tiles Clean
Maintaining clean tiles might seem like a simple task, but most people don't even realize just how dirty their tiles really are. Whether there are noticeable surface stains or unsightly looking grout (the areas between each tile), keeping your tiles in pristine condition can make a world of a difference.
Due to the porous nature of grout, it's easy for dirt, grime, and bacteria to get trapped deep inside the pores—especially if messes or spills aren't taken care of right away. Over time, this can cause browning in your grout, making it appear darker than it should be. Additionally, certain types of dirt and grime on your tile can actually cause a "sticky-like" effect on your tiles, which can be noticeable when you walk over them.
In order to keep your tiles clean, follow these quick tips and guidelines:
- Avoid using too much detergent when cleaning tiles yourself. This can cause "soap scum" to build up on your tiles as opposed to the shiny appearance you are going for.
- Make sure you thoroughly rinse your tiles using a vinegar solution mixed with hot water and then dry with a clean cloth.
- Vacuum the surface of your tiles to help remove any fresh dirt that might have recently made its way into the grout between your tiles.
- For best results, schedule a deep cleaning to remove YEARS worth of dirt and grime from your grout. You'd be amazed at just how much of a difference having your tiles professionally cleaned can make!
