Tiresome Tile

4-21-16Tile is beautiful almost anywhere in a home, but the dirt and debris that can cake up on it can diminish the appearance of such wonderful flooring.  So, in conjunction with our latest upholstery blog, we’re here to provide you with a few tips on tile floor care, to keep that floor always shining like new.

When it comes to dirt and debris, tile is like a magnet, especially the grout in between—it takes in all the dirt it can find.  So to reduce this build up, a perfect solution would be to encourage guests to remove their shoes when stepping onto the tile, especially in high-traffic areas such as by a door.  This will help reduce a large chunk of the dirt that will cake up on the floor, but there is still bound to be some appearing here and there.

To reduce build up of dirt, make a point to vacuum and damp-mop every week.  If you read our upholstery blog, you can align this with the same time you flip the cushions on your sofa (if you haven’t read it yet, we highly encourage you to do so!).  A simple vacuum and damp-mop will do, you don’t have to go overboard with it.  If you have glazed tile, you can take it a step further and use an all-purpose cleaner to clean the grout joints.  On the other hand, if you have unglazed tile, opt for a concentrated tile cleaner that has a neutral pH for regular cleaning.

However, despite your best efforts, caked up dirt and debris may find its way onto your tile, and entrench itself into the grout.  There’s no need to panic though, as Bayside Carpet can make short work of the dirt by using state-of-the-art cleaning tools and techniques to make your tile shine like new.  To schedule your tile cleaning appoint, give us a quick call at 1-609-290-2691.  In no time, we’ll wipe that grime away, and give a new life to that tile you love oh-so much.
