Keeping your tile floors clean this time of year can make you feel defeated some days, with all of the dust, dirt and mud that is tracked into your home throughout the winter. While tile is a sturdy and durable floor surface to have, it can take quite a beating from heavy foot traffic, pets and accidental spills that occur. However, no matter how filthy your tile floor gets, you must commit to keeping it clean, to give your home a feeling of comfort and cleanliness. With the holiday season upon us, you probably have relatives or friends coming to stay, so a clean tile floor is a must.
Cleaning Tile & Grout with a Traditional Mop & Bucket
When washing your tile floor, there are two ways to go when discussing cleaning methods. One way and the oldest way, is to grab a bucket and a mop and start your workout. Cleaning your tile floor with a traditional mop can be quite a task to take on. You must make sure that the water in your bucket is rotated out once it reaches a certain level of filthiness and you also must make sure that you have the appropriate amount of time and energy to take on such a job. One common mistake that occurs with mop cleaning, is not cleaning the mop itself. Over years of use, a mop will retain a large amount of the filth that it has cleaned up, and if your mop is not cleaned on a regular basis, then chances are your floor has not been thoroughly cleaned either. Mold and bacteria can grow and linger within the fibers of your mop, and when you go to clean your tile floors, instead of picking up dangerous bacteria, you will be spreading it around your entire floor. While mopping your floor can be effective, you must be sure that you are using a clean mop, rotating out your bucket water and using the appropriate cleanser to clean your tile.
