Ceramic tiles are a durable, practical addition to a home that are simple to maintain. These tiles come in a variety of textures, patterns, sizes and glaze types. Built-up dirt, mold, mildew and hard-water stains can dull the surface of ceramic tiles. Regularly cleaning and maintaining ceramic tiles can restore their shine. Use only proper cleaning products on ceramic tiles, as some cleaners can scratch the finish of tiles or discolour the grout.
If you are cleaning a floor, sweep it with a broom to loosen and remove dirt. Shake doormats outside to prevent dirt from being tracked onto the floor.
Fill a bucket with water, and then use a mop to clean the tiles with the water. Remove dirt and grease from the tiles by adding a couple drops of vinegar and dish soap to the water.
Continue mopping the ceramic tiles with the solution. Once the solution becomes dirty, dump it out and refill the bucket with fresh water, vinegar and dish soap.
Rinse the vinegar and dish soap off the tiles by mopping them with clean, warm water. Wipe down the tiles with a soft, dry towel to remove any film and make the tiles shine.
