Even when cleaned on a regular basis, tile has a way of becoming dirty beyond what normal means can correct. Tile in the kitchen and the bathroom are often exposed not only to normal wear and tear, but also excessive moisture and bacteria. When not properly cleaned, it puts you and everyone else at risk from bacteria- or mold-related illnesses. That is exactly why it is so important to take advantage of tile cleaning.
In-between professional cleaning it is important to do what you can to prevent the development of mold, mildew and other kinds of bacteria. Different kinds of tile locations may require different kinds of cleaning.
If you have tiled floor, make sure to sweep and vacuum your floor on a regular basis. This helps prevent dirt from being pushed into the tile when walking across it. You’ll want to clean the floor with a mild detergent. Make sure to regularly change the water throughout your cleaning. Once it turns from clear to brown, it’s time to swap it out. Using dirty (cloudy) water only means you’re pushing dirt into the tile. This may also lead to your grout absorbing excessive dirt.
Grout is made up of pores, which means it not only absorbs bacteria but it becomes that much more difficult to clean. While you can use a mild cleaner on the floor and regular tiles, you’ll want to make a cleaning paste of baking soda and water, then rub it into the grout. You can leave this sitting overnight if you’d like before scrubbing it away. This helps kill off the bacterial and restore it back to a cleaner condition.
You can clean shower tile similarly to tile flooring. However, in between showers, make sure to squeegee excess water away. If you don’t, you increase the chance of developing mold.
There are times when your own elbow grease is not enough to rid tiles of stains. Whether the grout has turned an off-color or you spilled wine on the kitchen floor and the red stain isn’t pulling out, professional cleaning services will restore your tile back to its original appearance.
It’s best to go with a professional cleaning service instead of using acidic cleaning combinations at home. Acidic combinations (often using lemon- or chemical-based acidic combinations) can cause more harm than good! This is especially the case if you have marble or other organic stone material. Different kinds of tile require different cleaning agents in order to remove stains. In order to keep your tile safe and to bring out the beautiful shine.
