Currently, tile is in great demand to coat the floor or wall of the house because of its glossy appearance and ease of maintenance. Tile materials are not slicker than ceramics to accelerate mop movements and are not as sensitive as marble, so they do not require cleaning products and special care. The tile floor has a smooth surface so it is very easy to show stains and dirt residue. Then you need to clean it regularly. If it is dirty, it will be very possible if the dirt causes the growth of germs and bacteria that are easily attached. If it is so, your family health can be threatened.
Cleaning the tile floor also tends to be easier than other flooring materials. Using a broom and wet mop as cleaning tools only work to remove dust from the surface of the tile floor. Lately, there is one latest tool that can be used to help clean your floor, it is the steam cleaner. Many manufacturers are now making steam cleaners for tile floors, not only for hardwood floors. Steam mop works well to keep your tile floor clean, shiny and germ-free. If you have a steam cleaner at home, use it once a week to kill bacteria on the floor. Read the instructions in the box for the correct use.
Here are some other ways you can practice to clean up your tile floors:
- Use a dust mop or vacuum cleaner
The first thing you should do is wipe the entire floor surface to get rid of dirt and dust. You can use a vacuum cleaner machine or a soft dry dust mop to accelerate the work.
- Continue to mop
Then fill a bucket with clean water mixed with tile special cleaning fluid. Squeeze the mop to avoid making the floor slippery. Then wipe the floor for the second time using a soft dry cloth and let it dry naturally. Furthermore, do not use rough-textured equipment, such as a wire brush or a rough cloth to clean stains attached to the floor as they can scratch its smooth surfaces.
In addition to some of the above steps, there is an important thing to note. It is the tile floor cleaning fluid. Cleaning products containing micro granules are easy to remove stains from the surface of the tile floor surfaces.
