5 Tips to keep your tiles clean

tilesYour floor is one of the most valuable investments in your home. It gives beauty to your home and adds value to the whole property. Tiles can be a large investment, especially if you hire a professional to do the job. This is why; taking care of your flooring should be given high priority so you can get the floors full life and still look great.

Country Life Carpet Cleaning shares these useful 5 tips to keep your tiles clean:

1.      Prevention

Prevention is always the best first line of defense against harmful elements that could damages your beautiful floor. By controlling dirt and sand which can enter your house, tile cleaning is easier. As much as possible, reduce the amount of dirt that enters your house by placing a door mat in front of your door entrance and add another indoor mat just inside your house. Two wipes should take 90% of the dirt carried by foot wears.

2.      Pets Off

As much as every one of us loves a clean and shiny floor to step on, your pets love it too. But pets can’t be taught to wipe their paws on the floor mats that you place in your porch and door front. They bring in dirt and sand particles which could scratch your floor’s surface. Their nails too can cause scratches in your tile floors.

Solution to this is to maybe restrict your pet to one area of your house and ensure proper grooming or you can choose to keep them outside your house.

3.      Keep chemicals and certain solutions out of reach of your kids

Abrasive and concentrated chemical or solutions can cause stains in your tile floors. Keep them out of reach of you kids to avoid this scene.

4.       Use Rugs in Your Kitchen

The kitchen is the busiest place in your house. This is where cooking occurs and the potential for spills and slops. Rugs can keep those unnoticed oil drips. With rugs, you can also do a spot cleaning when liquid ingredients fell or spill on the tile floor.

Beware not to create a trip hazard.

5.       No smoking

Make your house a smoke free one. Do not allow cigarette smoking inside your house as it could cause burns on you tile floor when cigarette butts suddenly fell on it. If this can’t be avoided, using an ashtray will be your best option.

Generally, maintaining a clean tile floor can be easily achieved when all family members cooperate.

How to have a healthy house?

2A healthy house starts from the ground up with clean tiles! Yes, that is true! Cleanliness is determined by how your surroundings appear, from your floors to your walls.

Whether it’s in your living room, family room or bedroom, tiles have been the most cost-effective solution to having a clean and shiny floor and walls. That is because, aside from its natural clean look, it is very easy to clean and maintain. To have a healthy house would mean serious dedication to its cleanliness and orderliness. Being so, everyone that lives on it will enjoy a healthy living.

But, maintaining the cleanliness in your home is not an easy task at all. In fact, disappointments and discouragements can easily come from dirty surfaces of your tiles which even with general cleaning won’t show any sign progress. That’s residual dirt! It is not good for your tiles as well as for your family’s health.

Scrubbing and applying different cleaning solutions to your tiles is not recommended because it will damage the surface of your tiles. Hot water and a microfiber cloth is the best option. If you have a lot of dirt build up a mild detergent will be all you will need or ask advice from a professional.
