Everyone loves to come home to a beautifully cleaned tile floor. Better than cleaning the tile floor yourself is having your tile and grout cleaned professionally for you. The tile is usually part of the flooring is most homes. It is often found in kitchens, bathrooms, entry ways and much more. The benefits of tile is that they are much harder to stain than carpet and last a lot longer as well. They can take a lot more wear and tear and still look great for a long time. The bad part about having quite a bit of tile is that it can be difficult to clean the grout. The method that is used most often for a homeowner to clean the grout can take a serious amount of time. That is a big reason it is a chore that is often skipped over. The problem is that the longer you leave the tile and grout cleaning on hold, the worse the staining can become and the harder it is to remove. You want to clean the tile and grout on a regular basis to ensure that it always looks its best.
Carpet Care 2000 lists tips to help keep your tile and grout clean.
Sweep or Vacuum Your Tile: If you have ever just started to mop your floors before you swept or vacuumed the tile floor, you know that it soon becomes a huge mess of mud. That is because there is a lot of dust, dirt and debris that is on the tile whether you can see it or not. The best way to make sure that the floor will get cleaned is to start with removing these extra bits of dust and dirt. You can accomplish this task by sweeping or running your vacuum on a safe setting. You want to be sure that you are doing it often since this same dust and dirt can work as an abrasive sandpaper type effect to damage the tile.
Use A Proper Tile & Cleaner: You want to use a cleaner that is best for your kind of flooring. You want to use a different cleaner if you have a stone floor as opposed to a laminate or manmade tile floor. You can try some options out to see what works best for your floors and leaves them nice and streak free.
Scrub The Grout: If you want to clean the grout yourself by all means go for it. The time that it takes to clean the grout even on a small area can be extreme. You will need to work a small space at a time and usually on your hands and knees moving slowly from tile to tile. This task is best left to a professional to save you time, energy and money; and give you a much better result in a much shorter time frame.
