Reno Right: Tile Maintanence

Keep your tile flooring looking as new as possible, with these cleaning and maintainence tips!


It’s important to make sure that dirt does not accumulate on your tile flooring, because accumulated dirt and grit can easily scratch and dull the surface. Sweeping or vacuuming is usually sufficient for regular floor cleaning. Damp-mopping with plain water at least once a week should also remove minor dirt and dust.

For more stubborn stains, damp-mop the floor with a mixture of warm water and mild dishwashing liquid – white vinegar works well, too, especially for greasy floors. After cleaning, rinse and mop the entire area with clean water to remove any cleaning solution residue. Buff dry with a clean microfiber cloth or old towel.
