If you have ceramic tile floors in your home, chances are you’ve wondered how to properly maintain them. Tile flooring is durable and reliable, making it an ideal choice for high-traffic rooms such as kitchens or bathrooms. Regular cleaning and other maintenance can keep your tiles in great condition for years to come. Here are a few tips to help you maintain your ceramic floor tile.
Cleaning Your Tiles
One way to keep your tiles clean, especially your kitchen floor tile, is to make sure spills are cleaned up as soon as possible. Letting them sit will give them a chance to stain, making removal harder in the long run. They key to a good tile cleaning is to wipe up messes immediately and to use a tile cleaner to scrub the area.
You can easily make your own homemade floor cleaner by combining white vinegar and water for a natural and harm-free cleaning option.
Cleaning Your Grout
Grout is usually white when applied, but can turn yellow or grey over time when exposed to the elements or everyday wear. The best grout cleaner you can make is a simple mixture of equal parts hydrogen peroxide and water, scrubbed over the area with a toothbrush. However, a store-bought option will also work for tougher stains.
The best way to keep your tiles and grout in top condition is to get them sealed twice a year. It’s also important to clean them regularly, either sweeping or vacuuming up crumbs and scrubbing away any marks or stains.
