Spring Means it is Time for Tile Cleaning

As you jot down ideas for spring cleaning, make sure to check out the tiling around your home. After a long, messy winter, the grout and tiles on your floor, inside your shower, or on your countertop might need a little extra care with tile cleaning.

Uncertain how to begin grout and tile cleaning this spring? Here are a few tricks and tips to get (and keep) these areas of your home sparkling:

Mop and Rinse Tiling: Although mopping tiling seems like the easiest solution, make sure to follow up with a thorough rinse. Otherwise, residual cleaners may dry and set onto the surface of these areas. This not only leaves a sticky residue behind, but also totally undoes all the mopping. Make sure to thoroughly rinse clean your tiles and grout every time!

Dry Tiling: After a rinse, though, it’s just as important to dry. If the dirt on your tiles and grout looks especially bad this spring, the reason might be a result of perpetually wet floors. Additional moisture absorbs dirt and then sets into porous areas such as tiles or grouting. By keeping the tile dry, you’ll be able to your keep floors looking fresh the whole year round!

Get Tiling Professional Cleaned: There are a lot of products, cleaners, appliances, and other cleaning materials you could use to clean tile and grout. Rather than risking a subpar clean and/or investing in the wrong products, why not consider a professional tile cleaning this spring? Quickly tick one chore off your list by allowing a professional to evaluate, clean, and dry your tile and grout for you.
