You’ve just had a beautiful ceramic tile floor installed in your home. What’s the first thought that pops into your mind? More than likely, it’s “how do I keep this floor looking like new?” While you probably chose ceramic flooring for its durability and ability to keep out most stains and dirt, you know that you will still have to establish a maintenance routine to ensure it is always looking its best. Luckily, Jim Boyd’s Flooring America is here to help you!
If a liquid is spilled on your ceramic flooring, the best thing to do is to clean it up right away! Typically, a mop or washcloth coupled with some hot water and an all-purpose cleaner should do the trick. If spills are left to it too long, they can seep into the tile or the surrounding grout and cause a stain.
For regular maintenance
If you’re able to make it a part of your weekly cleaning schedule, sweep or vacuum your ceramic flooring so that dirt cannot get stuck in the grout or scratch the surface of the tile. If you want, you could also incorporate a quick mopping into the regular cleaning routine!
For grout maintenance
The grout between your ceramic flooring tiles is important because it protects the individual tiles. You can seal your grout, and should, at least yearly to keep it like new. With sealed grout, water, other liquids, and debris cannot make their way underneath the tile and cause it any damage.
Ceramic flooring should not require excessive maintenance to keep it clean and beautiful. If you have questions about installing and caring for your ceramic flooring, call on the experts at Jim Boyd’s Flooring America today!
