Tiles as a flooring option are very popular among Adelaide homeowners. Unlike other materials, tiles are easy to clean and maintain. They also come in different shapes, sizes, colours, and textures to give you the exact look you need in your Adelaide house.
Taking care of tile flooring does not have to be a tiresome chore. Once you know the proper ways to clean your tiles, it will not take you much time or effort.
Here are a few simple techniques that will help you keep tiles and grout looking as good as new:
Sweep and Vacuum
One of the easiest ways to keep your tiles clean is to give them a sweep every day. That way, you will remove any dust or dirt, before it gets embedded in the grout. It will be more challenging to clean it by then.
You can use a vacuum, a mop, or a soft broom. However, avoid using a straw broom as it can scratch your Adelaide tile flooring.
Once a week, try to mop your tiles using warm water. If the tiles are filthy, you can use a mild soap. It is not advised to use any kind of cleansers, before checking with the tiles manufacturer or a professional expert. Some detergents contain chemicals that can damage your Adelaide tile flooring. If you use soap, make sure to rinse it properly. Otherwise, the soap residue will make your tiles look hazy.
Do not leave the tiles to air dry. When tiles are wet, they become slippery and can cause accidents. Additionally, the dirt can gather in wet areas. When cleaning tiles, avoid using a sponge mop. These mops will push the dirty water into the grout.
Remove Spills Immediately
A spill on your Adelaide tile flooring is very easy to clean before it dries. Therefore, spills must be cleaned as soon as possible. All you have to do is use an absorbent cloth to wipe off any spills. For raw meat or egg spills, it is advisable to use a disinfectant. It will remove any bacteria off your Adelaide tile flooring.
Do Not Forget the Grout
If the grout looks dirty, your whole Adelaide tile flooring will look unclean. That is why it is essential to give it a good cleaning every now and then. To clean the grout between tiles, you do not need a special cleanser. You can simply mix some baking soda with water to create a paste. Spread this paste onto the grout and leave it overnight. In the morning, scrub the grout using an old toothbrush. Finally, rinse any paste residue with some warm water.
