Porcelain tiles are some of the most popular flooring choices on the market today. These tiles are both stain and moisture resistant, extremely durable, and come in a wide range of fabulous solid and multicolored designs. Here are some useful tips for cleaning porcelain tile floors:
Unpolished/Unglazed Porcelain Tile: Thoroughly vacuum the floor, then clean small sections with a vinegar/water mixture or soft commercial cleanser. Let the cleanser soak into the tile for up to 10 minutes, but don’t allow it to dry onto the tiles. Wipe off the dirty solution and rinse with warm water. Hand dry with a soft cloth.
Polished/Glazed Porcelain Tile: For porcelain tile which is polished or glazed, the cleaning process is basically the same. However, you’ll need to dry mop the entire space instead of vacuuming. Then, wet mop with a soft cleanser and rinse with hot water, never allowing the liquid to puddle or pool. Dry the floor with a soft cloth, removing any visible water spots. Finally, buff the tiles with a piece of cheesecloth to restore the shine.
These cleaning strategies ensure that your porcelain tile floors maintain their aesthetic appeal and durability over time. Regular care and attention will not only preserve the pristine appearance of your tiles but also contribute to the longevity of this popular and resilient flooring choice.
