Between you, your family members, and your family members with four legs, the tile flooring in your Logan Square house experiences a tremendous amount of use from day to day. Regular, simple maintenance steps (outlined below), when combined with regular cleaning from the floor care experts at ServiceMaster Cleaning by Simons, will keep them looking good for the long haul.
The hard-surface floor cleaning specialists at ServiceMaster Cleaning by Simons will get your floors clean and shined up while removing the ground-in dirt that settles in and stains the grout. Your tile floors will look like new after our team is finished working on them.
Taking good care of your tile flooring is a must because it’s created to last a long time. In fact, the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) notes the average life expectancy of a ceramic tile floor is 75 to 100 years. (Natural stone such as marble and granite can last more than 100 years, also according to the NAHB.)
Tile, which is also known for its water resistance and easy cleaning, responds well to regular care. Shaw Flooring recommends the following steps to keep it looking good between professional cleanings:
- Basic Maintenance: Sweep or vacuum floors to remove any dust or debris before using any cleaning products. Damp-mop your tile floor at least once each week to decrease the abrasion from dirt and soil. (Damp-mop more frequently in heavy-traffic areas.)
- Glazed Tile: Clean regularly with an all-purpose, non-oil-based household cleaner that’s meant for cleaning grout joints. (Use an everyday multi-purpose spray cleaner to remove soap scum, hard-water deposits, and mildew on wall tiles in your bath or shower.)
- Unglazed Tile: Use concentrated tile cleaners that have a neutral pH for regular cleaning. These will safely remove grease, oils, and normal spills—just check to be sure the cleaner is intended for the specific application, use, and traffic level.
- After Cleaning: Rinse the entire area with clear water to remove any cleaning solution residue.
