Cleaning Your Outdoor Tiles
The outdoor area is also an important part of our property, and we should take the proper care of it, if we want for our home to look well maintained and clean. But many people have issues with cleaning the outdoor area, and especially the tiles, which are a very common part of the outdoor design around our homes. The outdoor tiles gather all kinds of dirt, mud and grim, and here are instructions to cleaning your outdoor tiles. Firstly, sweep the floor area well with the broom. If the outdoor tiles are placed vertically, wipe the area in a downward motion. Remove all standing dirt and debris from the area. Use the garden hose and thoroughly wash the tiles down with clean water. Use the water hose to soak heavily soiled areas. This will help in loosening up tightly compacted dirt. Add one tablespoon of the TSP based cleaner to the bucket and fill with water.
Dip the long handled scrub brush into the cleaner solution and remove. Using the brush scrub the area one section at a time. Approximately a four foot-by-four foot square. Keep the floor area wet. Do not allow the floor or wall to dry out, as the TSP cleaner may cause a white dust to form. This white dust is the dried TSP. Flush the outdoor tiles with clean water to remove all signs of the cleaner. Use the long handled squeegee to remove any standing pools of water from the floor area. The standing pools of water can catch floating dust particles and leave a dull finish when dry.
