However, you may be wondering how to clean your ceramic floors. We have the answers!
- Clean up spills immediately. It’s best not to let things sit, especially not spills! Do your best to wipe up dirt quickly, too. Mixing hot water and a mild detergent should do the trick. However, some detergents are stronger than others. Check the strength by doing a spot test.
- Clean often. Even if there are no spills, it’s important to clean regularly to avoid a buildup of dirt and dust. Sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping are all essential cleaning tasks to perform regularly. Sweeping and vacuuming will get all of the loose dirt, while mopping will pull up the rest.
- Be cautious with chemicals. Some chemical cleaners are too strong and can damage your ceramic flooring. For an inexpensive and safe cleaning option, we recommend mixing a cup of white vinegar and a gallon of water.
- Be kind to your grout. The best option is to seal the grout after installation and continue to get it resealed a couple times a year. To clean grout, mix hydrogen peroxide and water equally. Dip a toothbrush into the mix and gently scrub to watch the stains fade away!
