Tile is a wonderful flooring option for home owners to choose. From large to small tile shapes, colors and textures; tile provides the perfect accent for kitchens, bathrooms, entry ways and other areas of the home. Not only is tile beautiful, it is also known for being sturdy and durable, taking on heavy foot traffic and harsh spills like a champ. While this is true, tile still requires a healthy amount of regular maintenance, and without extra attention, your tile and grout will be left looking extremely unattractive, which will make the rest of your home looking sad and unclean.
Direct Carpet Cleaners has prepared the handful of common mistakes that homeowners make when it comes to tile and grout cleaning that can do more harm than good.
Professional Tile Floor Cleaners
While the absolute best option for home owners to go with when it comes to a thorough tile and grout cleaning is always hiring a floor cleaning professional, some home owners still decide to take on the overwhelming task of cleaning their own tile. One of the biggest mistakes that home owners make when cleaning their tile is not knowing what type of tile they have in their home. Some tiles can be damaged more easily than others during the cleaning process. Knowing what type of tile is in your home will determine what type of cleaners are appropriate and safe to use on your floor so no damage is caused.
Using the Wrong Floor Tile & Grout Cleaners
Many home owners make the mistake of purchasing the wrong type of cleaner when it comes to cleaning their grout and tile. When you use a cleaner that contains ammonia or bleach, you run the risk of damaging your grout and causing it to discolor, permanently. Natural stone tiles like granite and marble will be damaged if you use the same type of cleaner that is used on ceramic tiles. Some cleaning chemicals today are not safe to use in the home and can be harmful to you and your family. When you hire a professional floor cleaner, only the safest and most effective cleaners are used.
