How to Clean and Maintain Your Home's Tile Flooring

Last updated 6 years ago

Ceramic tile is a durable and beautiful flooring option for your home. However, like any flooring material, proper care and maintenance is extremely important to preserving the texture and color of the tile. View below for the best ways to maintain your ceramic tile:

Sweep and Mop: One of the best ways to care for your ceramic tile floor is through consistent cleaning. Vacuuming and sweeping your ceramic tile floor prevents particles of dust from scratching your ceramic tile floor or becoming ingrained into your grout. Next, mop your floor with a simple water and vinegar solution. After mopping, make sure that you dry the floor thoroughly to prevent water spots from forming.

Bleach: If your tile floor is particularly dirty or if you’re having trouble cleaning your grout consider using an oxygen bleach cleaning solution. Oxygen bleach is color- and fabric-safe, and will remove even the most stubborn stains and grime from your grout and ceramic tile flooring. Letting the oxygen bleach solution sit for a while will help it soak up the dirt and grime in between tiles. With a little scrubbing, your grout will look as good as new.

Seal and Wax: When you buy your tile, your tile representative will inform you about specific care measures that you’ll need to take with your tile. For example, some tiles will need to be sealed and waxed at least once a year.
