Ceramic tile is beautiful in kitchens and bathrooms, but its natural shine can fade over time. Learning how to clean tile correctly can make it look brand new again without damaging its surface. The mortgage brokers at Premium Mortgage Corporation, with office locations in Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse, NY, and Barre, VT, explain how to clean ceramic tile and make your kitchen and bathroom shine.
While ceramic tile is easy to care for, it's important to follow a cleaning routine to keep it looking new and shiny. Sweep or vacuum your tile daily to remove dirt and dust, which can dull its appearance. Since natural ceramic tile is porous, wipe up dirt or spills right away. Spots on natural ceramic tile, which doesn’t have a glaze, can be cleaned with warm, soapy water or rubbing alcohol for sticky stains.
Glazed ceramic tile is more durable than natural tile, but it can still get damaged if the wrong type of cleaner is used. After sweeping or vacuuming, routinely wash your tile using an all-purpose cleaner and a soft cotton or microfiber cloth or mop. Avoid using cleaning products containing ammonia or bleach, and never use steel wool or abrasive products on ceramic tile. For special occasions, you can buff the floor to make it extra shiny using an electric floor buffer.
