There’s nothing fun about cleaning bathroom tiles. There is always a lot of foot activity, water spills, soap residue, etc. When you mix all of these, you usually end up with a big mess!
If you don’t take action soon, your bathroom tiles will lose their shine. And over time, their color will permanently change. Once it gets to this stage, no amount of scrubbing will help. So, if your tiles are still fresh, you can restore them.
Try out these tips from your expert Aurees Tiles team to keep your bathroom tiles sparkling clean for a long time:
Get the Right Cleaning Supplies
You won’t be able to keep your bathroom tiles clean if you don’t have suitable materials. So, cleaning supplies are needed before enjoying your new, sparkly tiles.
Some of the cleaning supplies you’ll need in your Adelaide home include:
- A soft-bristled-handled brush
- a special tile cleaner or detergent.
If bleach smells too strong for you, you can use vinegar as a substitute. Before getting supplies, read up on the type of tile you have. Bleach and specific cleaning solutions are too harsh for some tiles. To avoid spoiling your tiles, do your research before you start cleaning.
Mop Spills Early
Many people make the mistake of allowing water spills to dry naturally. It would be best if you didn’t do this since water will dirty your tiles and eventually destroy the color, design, or pattern.
Also, leaving spills on the floor would be harmful because you could easily trip. The best thing you can do is clean your bathroom tiles whenever you’re done. Get an excellent absorbent mop to remove any liquid stains. Always ensure the mop is clean; if it’s unclean, the floor will only get dirtier.
Scrub the Grout
If you want to sparkle your bathroom tiles, scrub the grout. Your tiles’ grout is the cement filling between the wall and floor tiles. So, it’s the line you see running along your wall and floor.
The grout is white but turns dark if not cleaned. When your grout changes color, it affects the overall look of the tiles. Scrubbing your grout regularly, like once a week, will make all the difference.
Get a soft-bristled brush, cleaning solution, and bleach for extra whiteness. Mix them, apply them to your walls and floors, and then scrub them away. You’ll start seeing results if you’re consistent.
Regular scrub downs
When scrubbing your grout, you shouldn’t forget to pay attention to your tiles. At least once a week, brush your tiles. It will keep its luster and remove accumulated dirt from your Adelaide home. Before you do this, you’ll have to know your tile. Some are very sensitive, and you could wipe the glaze without being careful.
So you see, cleaning bathroom tiles can be a chore, so if you don’t have time for vigorous scrubdowns, you can call tile-cleaning professionals regularly.
