Guide to cleaning Vitrified Tiles

You do not want to ignore cleaning and see stunning floor tiles getting tarnished. On the other hand, you also don’t want to over-clean and damage the surface and finish of your floor tiles. Using the wrong cleaning solutions will leave your tiles looking dull and lifeless. There is no need to worry, we have compiled a quick guide for you on how to clean vitrified tiles.

    • Sweep your floor at least once a week to collect dust and other particles. Collect loose debris from the floor to protect it from any damage.
    • Don’t leave spills unattended for a long period, they may leave permanent stains on your tile.
    • For regular cleaning, mop your floor using warm water. Keep cleaning the mop in fresh warm water so that dirt from one section is not transferred to another.
    • Let the floor air dry and avoid walking on the floor until it is completely dried to prevent marks and spots.
    • For deeper cleaning, mix one cup of vinegar with one bucket of hot water. Soak a dry, soft mop in the solution and wipe the floor. Let the floor air-dry properly before walking on it.
    • The floor is never completely clean until you have cleaned the grout. For cleaning the grout, mix one cup of baking soda with two teaspoons of water. Apply the mixture on the grout lines and let it rest for 10 minutes. Then gently scrub the paste using a spare toothbrush. Lastly, wipe with a damp cloth.
    • It is advised not to use store-bought cleaners as they may tarnish the surface of the floor tile.
    • Do not clean the tiles with any acids or strong detergents as they may damage your tile and blemish the grout.
    • Avoid scrubbing too hard or using scrub pads.
    • Use microfibre mops rather than using cotton or sponge mops.
    • To remove stains caused by tea, coffee or juice, dip a cloth or paper towel in hydrogen peroxide and place it on the stain. Then, thoroughly clean the surface with water.
    • For ink stains, wipe the floor with a rag saturated in alcohol.

Experts say that you should clean your flooring tiles to avoid the build-up of dirt and moisture. Remember that the finish of the tiles can make a difference when it comes to cleaning the tiles. Glossy finish tiles are easier to clean as compared to matte tiles. However, they need to be cleaned more frequently as the glossy finish reflects light and, hence, any imperfections like stains, spots or water marks are easily noticeable. Thanks to their non-reflective quality, smudges, stains and spots are not easily visible on matte tiles. Keep your floors and walls clean to ensure the lovely design and finish of your tiles do not get spoiled.
