Spring means warmer weather, blooming flowers and everyone’s favorite – spring cleaning! This chore usually involves getting organized, but you should also take good care of your floors during the spring. Tile is one of the most popular flooring options in the home because it is one of the easiest options to clean (and keep that way!). Discover the best way to give your tile floors a deep clean this spring and keep them looking fresh the entire season.
Fortunately, tile is resistant to spills. When spills do occur, all it takes is a simple wipe with a damp cloth. On the other hand, tile floors require a bit more upkeep than other types of flooring. This doesn’t have to be an intense clean every time! Instead, make these steps part of your daily routine:
- Sweep or vacuum to remove any surface dust or debris.
- Use a damp mop or microfiber cloth to clean the tile surface with a mix of warm water and a mild detergent.
- Wipe with a clean, dry towel.
That’s it! Remember never to use heat treatment on tile flooring, as it can damage the surface. Similarly, keep a protective padding underneath future that touches tile floors so as to prevent scratches, dents, and other damage from occurring. With proper care, your tiles will look beautiful for many springs to come! Now is the perfect time to refresh and renew your home’s tile floors.
