The best cleaning tips for tile flooring

One of the great things about porcelain and ceramic tile flooring is its low maintenance. Like anything else, though, it does need some periodic TLC.

And the better you care for it, the longer it will last. When taken care of, tile flooring can last up to 50 years or more.

Tile’s easy cleaning

Sweep or dry mop your tile flooring regularly. This prevents sand and dirt from embedding and scratching.

Dirt sits at the top, so it's easy to remove. You only need warm water, gentle soap, and a microfiber mop or cloth—no need for harsh cleaners or sharp tools. 

Feel free to ask our tile store professionals if you have questions.

How often?

The general rule is to sweep or dry mop at least twice weekly. Wet mop the bathroom floor once a week, and the kitchen, every two weeks.

A word about grout

Grout is absorbent and gets dirty quickly. Anyone who has ever had to scrub grout knows how difficult it is!

The best bet is to clean it regularly before any build-up occurs. You can make a paste of ½ cup baking soda, ¼ cup hydrogen peroxide, and 1 tsp dish soap. Let sit for five-10 minutes and then rub.

This keeps your tile in Independence, MO, clean and shiny. There are also many good commercial grout cleaners on the market.
