Common tile cleaning mistakes you should know!

  1. Excessive scrubbing
  2. Too much cleaner
  3. Using the wrong product
  4. Not acting quickly

Mistake 1.

Excessive scrubbing, scrubbing too much will wreck the surface of your tiles over time. You may think that the harder you scrub on your tile floor, the better the result will be. This is a big mistake! When you scrub too much, you can damage your tile floor in the process creating cracks and scratches in your tiles and ruin your grout.

Mistake 2.

Too much cleaner. The more products you use on your tile floor, the more you then have to remove it again. More cleaner means cleaner floor doesn’t mean a cleaner floor it means more work for you. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and only use the recommended amount – plus, it will save you money too!

Mistake 3.

Using the wrong product. Before you start using a cleaner, read the instructions and make sure it is the right cleaner for your type of tiles. Test the cleaner in a small patch behind a door, sink or toilet to make sure it doesn’t damage or harm your tile flooring. At Country Life Carpet Care we recommend a neutral cleaner, contact us for more details.

Mistake 4.

Not acting quickly. The longer you let the dirt, stain or damage sit on your tile floors, the harder these problems will be to fix. Act quickly on stains and damage so you can spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying your tile floor.
