Fortunately, cleaning your tiles isn’t as hard as you may think, and the following are some tips that will get everything spic and span in no time flat.

Start by vacuuming your tile using the machine’s floor or brush attachments. This removes loose dirt and grime so that you’re not scrubbing it into the floor surface.

Next, take a bucket of warm water and mix in 1/4 cup of white vinegar or mild soap. You’ll want to mop the floor thoroughly, using a plastic bristled brush to remove stubborn grime and dirt.

Once dry, give it a thorough rinse with pure warm water. Allow this to dry, repeating these steps on any areas that are still dirty.

Remember, if you have sealed tile, you may need to reapply in the future to maintain its effectiveness.
