There are many reasons to love tile floors. They provide style, durability, and can even help keep your home cooler during hot summer months.
As the leader for tile cleaning in Rancho Cucamonga, one of the most common questions we get is how to best clean tile between our visits.
Here are a few tips and tricks that can help your tile last even longer when paired with professional tile cleaning on a routine basis.
#1 – Protect tile using rugs and doormats.
Place rugs and mats in high traffic areas like doorways, in front of sinks, or in hallways. This helps as rugs catch dirt and other particles that are tracked indoors and can scratch and wear down your tile.
#2 – Take added measures if there are pets in the home.
Avoid scratching on tile floors by keeping your pet’s nails trimmed. Vacuum hair and dander from floors at least weekly, and clean up accidents fast. Pet urine contains acid that can eat away at your tile surfaces, so acting quickly is key.
#3 – Be cautious with furniture on tile.
Place protective pads on the feet of furniture to prevent scratching. Don’t put items that are extremely heavy directly on tile to avoid cracking it.
#4 – Sweep and mop your tile often.
Any amount of dust or particles can dull the surface of tile. To prevent this, sweep or vacuum your tile at the very least on a weekly basis. When mopping, use a non-abrasive cloth or mop. A mixture of ¼ cup white vinegar in 2 gallons of hot water is an effective homemade option. If you opt for a store-bought cleaner, avoid any abrasive or oil-based cleaners as well as ammonia and bleach.
#5 – Reseal your tile and grout regularly.
It’s inevitable that the seal on your tile and grout will gradually wear away over time. Restoring it is essential to prevent stains, dirt, and liquid from seeping into your tile and grout. Chem-Dry can reseal your tile and grout as part of our premier tile cleaning service in Rancho Cucamonga.
