Let’s talk about cleaning tiles. Those who don’t have a tile decorated house would think cleaning tiles is more difficult than cleaning cement floors. However, it’s the other way around. Cleaning tile floor is easier than cleaning cement floors. 

There are different ways to clean tiles. But, in this article, I’ll give you the simplest way to clean tiles. 

1. Use Tiles Cleaning Broom 

The first step to start with cleaning your tiles is to use a broom to sweep. You can use the broom for the wall tiles too. Broom works perfectly for every type of tile and can reach almost all the corners. 

Vacuum cleaner won’t provide you the quality of cleanliness that a broom will give you. Tiles are smooth and slippery. A vacuum cleaner will miss some dirt. Therefore, sweeping thoroughly can remove more dirt than a vacuum cleaner.  

2. Brush for Cleaning tiles 

Brush the floor to remove extra trap dirt between the tiles. Using a new brush will bring out more dirt than an old one. Brush thoroughly around each corner and in between tiles. By now, your tiles would be 90% clean.

There are lots of tiles cleaning chemicals in the market today. You just have to purchase a bottle of chemical and mix it with a bucket full of water. Then, mix it well and pour it onto the tiles. Spread the water to every corner of the tiles and wait until the chemical softens the stubborn debris and dirt. 

The best thing about this chemical is it weakens any type of debris and dirt. Be it wall paint drops or a dirty shoe print. After leaving the chemical water for 15 to 20 minutes, use a mop to rub the floors and walls. 

Instead of chemical solutions, you can use vinegar, kerosene, and ammonia. But, it won’t be as effective as a tile cleaning chemical solution. 

4. Mop the Floor 

Rub the floor while the chemical water is still on the tiles. You’ll see all the stains and dirt coming out of the tiles. Keep rubbing until it satisfies you.
