Cleaning Kitchen or Bathroom Countertop & Backsplash Tile & Grout in Danville, CA

In every home there are some rooms that get used more frequently than others. What rooms get used the most vary from house to house depending on the family and their daily routines. Two rooms that get used more across the board though are kitchens and bathrooms. Keeping frequently used rooms clean can be a tough task for even the most dedicated of homeowners. If you have tile countertops and backsplashes in your kitchens and bathrooms you may be finding it even harder to keep these types of rooms clean. Today Carpet Care 2000 has some tips to share with you on how to keep your tile countertops and backsplashes nice and clean.

Clean Tile Counters & Backsplashes Often

You will want to make sure that your tile countertops and backsplashes get cleaned on a regular basis. Once bacteria and stains have had a chance to start building up they are definitely harder to get rid of. For many homeowners the floors, sinks, tubs, counters, and toilets get cleaned regularly but their backsplashes just do not seem to get cleaned as often. Make sure that cleaning your backsplashes is included in your list of chores that is completed on a routine basis.

Best Tile Cleaner Solution

When you do regular cleaning of your tile countertops and backsplashes you will want to use an all-purpose cleaner and degreaser. Make sure that the cleaner does not have any abrasives in it that may scratch the tile while you are cleaning it. You will want to spray the cleaner onto the tile and then let it soak in for about 20 minutes. You can clean other areas of your kitchen or bathroom as you let it sink in. After it has set in you will want to use a soft, non-abrasive rag to wipe your countertops or backsplashes. We do not recommend that you use a sponge. Sponges harbor bacteria that can then seep into the grout in your tile. Plus some sponges have abrasive surfaces on parts of them that may scratch your tile. Once you have cleaned your tile you will want to use a clean, wet rag to wipe the tile one last time to help get any residue from your cleaning product off the tile.

Deep Cleaning of Tile Countertops

In addition to regular cleaning with an all-purpose cleaner you will want to sporadically do a deeper cleaning of your tile countertops and backsplashes. For this we recommend getting some baking soda. Get a wet cloth and sprinkle it with some baking soda. Use the rag to rinse your tile surfaces. You will want to really take the time to scrub well. When you are done you will want to rinse the tile off with warm water and a dry it with a soft cloth.

How to Remove Grease Stains from Countertops

Sometimes you will get grease spots or stains that just will not clean off with the methods mentioned above. To get those tough grease stains off make a paste with ΒΌ cup baking soda, 1 tablespoon borax, and 2 tablespoons of mild dish soap. Get your tiles wet with some warm water. Then take the baking soda mixture and put it on your stained spot. Scrub the mixture in nice and hard. When you are done wipe off the baking soda mixture thoroughly with a wet cloth. Some people recommend using a mixture of one part lemon juice to two parts vinegar. Mix those together well and then add two parts baking soda to make it into a paste. Sometimes adding that lemon juice and vinegar help break through those extra tough stains.
