Are your bathroom tiles deteriorating the look of the bathroom? Are you facing trouble in cleaning tiles? Here’s what you need to know:
Bathrooms are one of the areas in your property that are getting the heaviest usage. Cleaning bathrooms can be a critical task. It is important to keep it clean as it can soon start losing its shine. Don’t worry, here are some of the tips on how to clean bathroom tiles properly:
The first and foremost thing that you need to focus on tile and grout is the grout lines. Grout lines are porous in nature and are the center of the attraction on any tiled surface. They can attract dirt, dust, and stains and help mold to grow. They begin to appear dirty and spoils the look of the bathroom.
Check your products, especially your shampoo before using. If it has any colorants or dyes in it, then there are chances that the color will over time settle on your white grout and discolor it. Whether you are using such type of products, then you should clean your wall tiles with a clean cloth and wipe them.
The best way to tackle the cleaning is to use an old toothbrush and an effective cleaning agent. Mix some baking soda with vinegar in a bowl and form a paste. When applied into the grout with a toothbrush, it will easily cut through the dirt without causing any damage.
Beginning with the wall tiles, you first need to consider the finish of them as this will dictate which products to use. Vinegar should be perfectly fine on ceramic tiles. If you have plain ceramic tiles then you should be fine using a scouring pad but if you have printed pattern tiles then a soft sponge or microfiber cloth is a safer way to go. Also never use vinegar or harsh cloths on marble surfaces as they’ll ultimately do a lot more harm than good!
Firstly, you need to check the finish of the tiles, which can help you to choose the right cleaning agent or product. For ceramic tiles, vinegar is the best choice. Vinegar acts as a degreaser. Take a soft sponge or a microfiber cloth to clean the wall tiles with vinegar.
Use of a steam cleaner is best if you have large floor tiles area. A steam cleaner will work through any dirt and grime present on your bathroom floor tiles quickly and effectively.
It is advisable to check the type of floor tiling before using a steam cleaner. Start with cleaning the bathroom floor tile with a clean cloth to clean big dust particles. Guide the steam cleaner over the floor, such as it covers the whole bathroom floor.
Finally, leave it to dry keeping the windows and door open so as to let in fresh air. Complete the process by wiping the floor with a cloth.
