Tile Care Tips

Tips for Everyday Tile Care

Just like carpet, tile floors get dirty from the daily wear and tear of life. And while regular cleanings are a must, several things should be considered when determining how often to clean your floor, from the amount of foot traffic to whether you have kids and pets. In between professional cleanings, you’ll naturally want to perform some ordinary tile maintenance to keep your floor looking its best. Here are a few tile care tips that will help:

  • Avoid scratches and scrapes from things like chairs and furniture, whenever possible. Scratches and cracks provide an easy opening for dirt to enter.
  • Wash tile regularly with a neutral cleaner and remove water as soon as possible.
  • Vacuum regularly.
  • Avoid using wax on your floors. Avoid ammonia-based cleaners and bleach that can discolor your grout.
  • Clean spills quickly to avoid discoloration from possible chemicals in the liquid.

Fortunately, regular professional tile cleanings and a clear or color grout sealer make tile maintenance easy. The sealant creates an invisible barrier over your grout that resists dirt and spills before they are absorbed, which in turn makes them easier to remove.

To preserve the life of your sealant, Stanley Steemer recommends that you use a neutral cleaner on your floor. Always rinse after you mop, and avoid bleach and other harsh chemical cleaners that could wear away the sealant and cause it to break down prematurely.

Remember, Stanley Steemer can preserve the beauty to your tile floors—even when it seems like replacement is the only option.

Customer Testimonials
They steam cleaned wall-to-wall carpet in 3 rooms: living room, dining room and family room. The carpet is more than 20 years old and the blond color of a golden lab retriever.
When I made the appointment I explained that I had a heavily soiled traffic area in the family room. I also had brownish stains from leaky plants. When the technician arrived and did the inspection, he gave a range of possible outcomes for the heavily soiled and stained areas. He said they could disappear, get lighter or stay the same. Mentally, I translated what he said as: I'm not a miracle worker, but I'll do my best. Well, his best was pretty impressive. They exceeded my expectations, especially in the family room where the high-traffic area was black. I couldn't believe the change. I am very pleased with the results. Job well done and worth the price!
