Get the Most Out of Your Tile Flooring
Your tile flooring is waterproof, but your grout may not be. Seal it immediately to keep spills from seeping through and damaging your subfloor.
2. Use Throw Rugs
Tile flooring is durable, but it does gradually wear over time or with excessive use. If you have areas that get a lot of hard traffic, throw a few rugs down for good measure.
3. Sweep Regularly
Dirt may look harmless, but if left alone long enough, it can cause small scratches on your tile flooring. Sweep regularly to keep your floors bright and clean.
4. Mop Once a Week
Mopping regularly will keep small messes from becoming set-in stains. If your flooring doesn't receive much traffic, once a week is sufficient. Otherwise, if you have kids and pets constantly making messes, mop more often as needed.
5. Test Cleaners Before Using
When you find you do have a stain you need to treat, be careful about the products that you use. Make sure they are safe for tile flooring and test them first in an inconspicuous location just in case.
6. Rinse Floor After Cleaning
Once you've mopped or cleaned your floors, go over them a second time with water to rinse off all the leftover residue. Not only will this help protect your flooring, but it will help prevent the residue from attracting dirt and dust as well.
7. Have Damage Repaired Professionally
Lastly, if your tile flooring is ever in need of repairs, hire a professional. The risk of damaging your floors is not worth the money you would save trying to do it yourself.
