Why do my tiles look dirty even after I have just cleaned them?

clean tilesTiles are a great flooring choice as they require little maintenance to keep its durability for longer years. Just mix a little amount of vinegar and water as your cleaner then gently rub it on the tile surface, fast and easy; perfect to save you time and money.

However, some tiles are hard to clean as they are not cleaned regularly or easily get dirty after cleaning. These causes can leave your tiles looking dirty even after you have cleaned them so it is time to call in the professional tile cleaners.

There are 3 things that make tile cleaning hard for you:

  1. Grout residue
  2. Soap scum
  3. Chemical marks

Grout residue

After your tiles have been laid and grouted, the grout must be left to set. Once the grout is set the grout residue needs to be buffed off your tiles to make sure no grout haze is left. If the grout reside was not remove after the tiles were laid your tiles will never look really clean. If you grout has not been sealed it can also trap dirt making it hard for you to wash the dirt away as when the tile is dry, the cycle continues all over again. Time to call in a professional tile cleaner!

Soap scum

Soap or detergent can build up on your tiles and trap dirt. Using soapy cleaners only makes the effect worse and cause a build-up of dirt, making the tiles look drab. Pour a small amount of water on a tile surface then gently scrub itto check for any suds.

Follow these tips for tile cleaning:

  1. Use proper neutral cleaner
  2. Avoid chemical cleaner

Use proper cleaner

Use a neutral tile and grout cleaner to remove dirt and any detergent build-up on tile surface. Make sure to follow the directions then rinse thoroughly to avoid having the same problem.

How to keep your office carpet in top condition?

cleaningOffice carpets put up with a lot of things every day – traffic, dirty shoes, heavy equipment, spills and much more. These things can make your carpet look faded and worn out over time. However, there are ways on how you can keep your carpet looking great, despite the day to day traffic of a busy your office.

With carpets, constant care and maintenance is the best thing to do. It is always better to maintain the look of your carpet rather than make repair or replace when they get major damage or totally worn out.

Use preventative measures

Prevention is better than cure, right? This also applies to your carpet. There are a lot of ways to prevent damages to your carpet and keep them looking at its best for years to come!

  • Outdoor mats at entry doors
  • Use rugs in high traffic areas
  • Do not drag equipment over the carpet
  • Prevent food and drink spills
  • Annual carpet cleaning

Outdoor mats at entry doors

Outdoor mats should be durable and tough enough to withstand daily wipe of shoes. Outdoor mats will collect dust, dirt and debris allowing people to wipe their shoes as they come in.

Use rugs in high traffic areas

Areas such as hallways, foyers and conference rooms can be the common place for office workers to gather. The carpet can be susceptible to daily wear and tear so make sure you place rugs on strategic places. Rugs and mats can be a focal point, that are changed to suit the season.

Do not drag equipment over the carpet

Never drag an office equipment or furniture over the carpet. This can ruin the padding under your carpet. When you have to rearrange furniture, use a trolley and lift the furniture.

Prevent food and drink spills

Food and drink spills can damage your carpet so if possible, ask your employees to comply with no food or drink policy while inside the office. You can also create an eating zone area inside the office where they can eat freely without the fear of having your carpet stained.

Annual carpet cleaning

Getting your carpet steam cleaned annual or even twice a year if need be will remove all the deep down residual dirt and grime that can rub at the base of your carpet and cause premature wear on your carpets.

Maintain your carpet regularly and it will look like new for longer and can make your office look better for a long time!
