Cleaning Ceramic Floor Tiles
Ceramic tiles are made from clay or porcelain and other ferrous material which contribute in making it hard and tough. Ceramic tiles are broadly classified into two prominent varieties, the glazed and the unglazed ones. The glazed ones, as the name suggests, have a shiny coat. Due to this, they are less prone to getting spoiled by liquid products. On the other hand, the unglazed ones do not have such a coat, they do not repel water and hence, need high maintenance. The following are easy methods used for cleaning ceramic tiles. Cleaning with tap water is the easiest and the most effective method of cleaning ceramic tiles. When dirty, you can simply mop the floors with clean water. Your regular detergent can also be used to clean ceramic floors. Add 1 tablespoon of detergent to a bucket of warm water and clean the floors. You should not forget to rinse the floor later with clean water.
You can use all purpose cleaners to clean coffee or food stains on the floor. Just apply the cleaner to the floor, leave it for 4-5 minutes, wipe it with a sponge, and rinse with clean water. You can use cleaning products obtained directly from the manufacturers. These products can be used according to the instructions given alongside. Cleaning with vinegar is yet another effective method. You can add 1-2 drops of vinegar to 1 gallon of warm water and use it for cleaning the floor. Steam cleaning is an advanced method of cleaning tiles which uses high water pressure for cleaning. You can buy or rent the standard steam cleaning machine available in the market for this purpose.
