Sparkling floors are a treat for every home. Even if you hire professional house cleaners to take care and clean your home frequently, there are some things you need to do yourself. It is important for you to keep dirt and grime at bay. When you enter the home, the dirt underneath your shoes makes tile floors dirty. Select Home Cleaning- a leading professional and trusted home cleaning company in the country suggests you remove this dirt every day to keep your floor’s shine.
The following are three easy speed cleaning tips for tile floors-
1.Vacuum or sweep tile floors- It is important for you to vacuum or sweep tile floors. The surface of the floor will not become dull. Generally tiles are resistant to dirt. However, the dirt you bring in with your shoes will dull the glazed surface of the floor. Use a very mild detergent and clean water when you are cleaning the floor. Use a chamois mop or rag to wipe the floor over a sponge mop. A sponge mop will push the dirty water into the grout making it hard to remove. While mopping the floor, make sure you change the dirty water frequently. If you use the same water to clean the floor, you will get a cloudy surface.
2. Remove residue- If you notice your floors looking hazy, you are faced with soapy residue on your floor. You can remove the film of this soapy residue with an all-purpose home cleaner. Ensure the cleaner is non-abrasive. You can also use very mild acidic solutions like fresh juice of a lemon on tiles made of ceramic. Never use this solution on marble tiles because acidic material in lemon will spoil it. You can clean the surface with fresh water and dry with a lint-free cloth. You do not have to bend down to clean the floor. You can use your foot to wipe the surface of the floor with the cloth.
3. Cleaning grout- A clean grout indicates a very clean floor. Grout is porous and can absorb stains and grease. When you are cleaning grout, it is wise to skip using a commercial cleaner. You can make a homemade paste of water and baking soda. Rub this paste on the stain and allow it to remain overnight. In the morning, scrub the stain with a good quality nylon brush. Never use a metal brush as this will damage the grout. Repeat till your tile floor is clean. To keep future stains at bay, you can use a sealer with silicone as its base.
