Tips to Get Glossy Clean Tile Flooring

June 23, 2020
Flooring covers a large area and has to be cleaned every now and then to have a dirt-free, contaminant resistant, and radiant look. Well with, latest effective cleaning agents available in the market, the cleaning and maintenance of tile flooring is not a big deal. Among the number of commercial flooring types available in the market, tiles are the principal choice of flooring for their easy maintenance.

Few Tips You Can Follow To Have Glossy Clean Tile Flooring:

  • Cleaning the tiles regularly avoids extra effort, usage of strong chemicals, and scrubbing the floors. Checking for oil spills especially in the kitchen and dining area, cleaning them consistently could remain the tiles allure.
  • Tiles are generally resistant to dust but sand, food crumbs, and debris get accumulated in the edges of the tile giving a dull appearance. Hence sweeping, vacuuming is considered as a routine. 
  • Mop tiles using a mild detergent or warm water with chamois type mop instead of sponges for a better finish and shine after cleaning. 
  • Tile flooring is of two types, glazed and unglazed, glazed tiles have a glossy appearance, and thick finish and using wrong cleaning agents could result in obtuse flooring. Hence mild cleaning agents like vinegar, warm water, lemon juice (3 to 4 lemons in half bucket water) in water are better choices for glazed tiles.
  • Unglazed tiles are porous, dirt and stains get easily pile up. Hence making the cleaning process difficult. They require effective cleaning agents to clean them. 
  • The fading color of the tiles is common in the long run but can be treated by using one cup of ammonia with 2-3 liters of water for scrubbing the floor and rinsing it.
  • Surprisingly tea can be used as a cleaning agent if no other option is left at your home to clean your tiles. A few tea bags in liter water boil and then cooled can be used to mop the floor. Use a dry soft cloth to remove excess liquids. This also gives a good shine to your flooring.
  • Wax removing can be done using laundry detergent, ammonia, and warm water combined together (ammonia and detergent very minute quantity) that enhances the tiles a bright look.

How effective may be the cleaning agents or your cleaning process, unless it is standard and done as a routine the flooring cannot be maintained long with flashy look. Having a good understanding on the quality of your tile flooring could help the blissful glossy appearance last forever.
