Expert Tips for Complete Care and Maintenance of Tile Floors

Tile Floor Deep Cleaning

Floors come in a myriad of different choices, but tile is always popular. Unlike hardwood flooring, tile floors are durable, easy to install, are waterproof, and there is an almost endless choice of patterns and designs. Most importantly, they do not need anywhere near as much maintenance as carpet does. However, like all floors, they do need regular cleaning in order to keep them looking their best.

All floors – even those made of the same materials – suffer different wear and tear because they all have different uses and they have different amounts and even types of traffic. Tiles can have smooth or textured surfaces, but all should be regularly swept or vacuumed to remove as much dust and dirt as possible. In high traffic areas, such as a retail store for example, the tiles should be swept or vacuumed daily. Tile floors should also be mopped with a damp mop at least once a week, in order to help keep them shiny, and they should be dried after mopping so that new dirt doesn’t settle in wet or damp areas, especially on tiles that are textured.

Any spills, including water, should be mopped up immediately using an absorbent cloth or squeegee. However, if you have dirtier spills such as dropped raw meat which is bloody, or even pet accidents, it is necessary to clean them with a liquid cleaner or a disinfectant.

Nevertheless, however you clean your tile floors, from time to time they will need deep cleaning, especially tiles which are textured. At 4Earth Solutions we can deep clean tile floors of all types in order to give them that “just laid” sparkle once again. You will be amazed at the difference in how your tile floors look once we have deep cleaned them. This is especially true of the grout. Even though you clean your tile floors regularly, the grout will gradually look dirtier over time. Deep cleaning the floor also includes deep cleaning the grout and bringing it up to sparkling white again.

If your tile floor hasn’t been deep cleaned for some time while it is probably time that it should be done, so give us a call on 0191 567 0300 or email
