Do a quick Google search for the best way to clean tile, and we guarantee that you’ll find several different results, each one conflicting with the last on what products to use and the methods on how to clean. All of these difference can leave people wonder on what is the best way to clean their tile floors. Thankfully, our tile-cleaning experts at Bayside Carpet have come up with their strategy to a clean tile floor; one that is proven time and time again.
Our experts agree that the number one strategy to tile cleaning is prevention–you don’t have to clean if there is nothing to clean. What they mean by this is to keep up on regular maintenance: sweeping and vacuuming. If a spill arises, clean it up promptly, before it has the chance to set in for good.
However, when the floor needs to be cleaned, whether it be for seasonal cleaning or for guests coming over, our experts agree that a mop with water is the best thing for your floor. Since there are no additives or chemicals, you have no risk of potentially ruining your beautiful tile, all the while giving it the cleaning it deserves. Although, you can mix in a cup of vinegar in a gallon of water for a cleaning solution that will leave your floors odor-free.
Our experts do recommend, however, to have your tile floors professionally cleaned at least once a year, if not sooner. Tile floors residing in high-traffic areas may need to be cleaned every few months, in order to better preserve their natural shine.
