Sweep or vacuum your tile floors a couple of times a week. Sand and grit can dull and scratch the surface. Once you’ve removed the dirt, you’re ready to mop. Mix a mild detergent with hot water and apply with a rag or chamois mop instead of a sponge mop. If you use a cleaner, make sure it’s neutral – non-acidic and non-alkaline. Where soil is more concentrated, use a cleaner made specifically for ceramic tile. You should not use soap on tile. It leaves a film which dulls the surface and promotes mildew, You should not use an acid or ammonia-based cleaner, because it could affect the color of the grout. Acid-based cleaners will cause polished marble tiles to dull. You should not use bleach or vinegar and water – vinegar is an acid. You should not use steel wool pads or any abrasive on tile or stone. These materials can scratch or dull the surface. Any loose particles of steel left on the grout will cause rust stains. Tile, Grout and Stone require different types of maintenance.
