tips for cleaning tile floors

Cleaning tile floors is easy - by design. To make glazed tile, manufacturers fuse liquid glass to ceramic tile at high temperatures. That makes a hard, nonporous surface.

There are many advantages to glazed tile: It doesn't stain, scratch, or burn easily; it's not slippery; and it's easy to clean.

Here's what you need to know about cleaning tile floors to keep them looking their best.

Cleaning Tile Floors Safely

Tile floors are lovely to look at and relatively easy to care for. Here's how to safely care for and clean your tile floors:

  • Vacuum and/or sweep regularly.
  • Avoid abrasive powders that can scratch the tile.
  • Avoid ammonia-based cleaners.
  • Clean tile with a nylon scrub sponge using nonabrasive cleaner and water, and then rinse.
  • Never use wax or a sealant on tile floors.
  • Clean tile grout by scrubbing with detergent, and then apply a diluted solution of chlorine bleach and let sit for five minutes. Then wash again and rinse.

If you make sure to clean tile floors without causing scratches, this flooring in your kitchen or bathroom can last you and the family decades.
