cleaning tile floors


Cleaning tile floors is easy - by design. 

To make glazed tile, manufacturers fuse liquid glass to ceramic tile at high temperatures.

This creates a hard, nonporous surface.

There are many advantages to a tile floor as a result: It doesn't stain, scratch, or burn easily; and it's easy to clean tile if you use the right cleaners and tools.

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

Regularly vacuum and damp-mop your tile floor, and clean tile floors of spills immediately.

When deep cleaning tile floors, use a neutral-pH cleaner without surfactants (which can leave a residue on tile floors) such as Armstrong Once 'N Done Concentrated floor cleaner,for tough grease-cutting action.

Make sure your cleaner has a built-in reinforcing sealer.
