Tips for Maintaining the Tiles

From moving into your dream home to finding every nook and corner of your house beautiful might have been a dream come true for you, right? You might have spent days and months and years planning how to make your dream home ‘heaven on earth’. Tiles, to start with, have been playing an important role in making your home elegant and beautiful. Be it your time spent on choosing the right pavement tiles or living room tiles, it might have been equally difficult and time consuming. And now that you reside in your little ‘heaven on earth’, a little stain on your beautiful tiles can make you feel worrisome.

You wouldn’t want to live with never-leaving stains and we absolutely understand that. Not alone your carelessness, but there are some factors that might reduce the longevity of your beautiful tiles, leaving marks in your dream home. Stains, on the other hand, may not be less than scars that might never leave, if not paid proper attention.

You might also worry about your tiles starting to wear. Your worry about the light-colored tiles getting stained or superior-quality tiles losing their glossy look with time is understandable. If you are looking for some tips for tile maintenance, you have come to the right place. These tips might help your tiles do justice to the money spent on them, by keeping them clean and beautiful for a longer period of time.

1. Cleaning regularly

We know that it is difficult to clean tiles daily, but having a good cleanup on a weekly basis may be of help. If tiles are not cleaned regularly, dirt might start to build up. Removing dust or debris is very essential before using any kind of cleaning products. Hence, try sweeping and mopping on a regular basis. Unlike pavement tiles, other tiles in the house require regular attention.

2. Take care of the stains

You can be extra careful with your tiles and still end up finding some sort of stain. Being worried or angry won’t actually remove the stains, but being smart might help you remove them at least. It is understandable for your tiles being prone to stains, but it would be wiser to know what to do in order to take care of them. Be it harsh, stubborn stains or easy to remove ones, we need to understand that stains cannot be taken lightly. If not taken care properly, they might be our permanent guests and we don’t want that.

To remove normal stains, using a mixture of white vinegar and lukewarm water might be helpful. Use a sponge to clean the stains and see the magic. Make sure the area dries up well. You might not want the soap residues to be an additional problem.

3. Bring back the shine

Some tiles like the bathroom tiles need to be given extra attention. They are expected to be clean all the time. Tiles might lose their shine and become dull and smearing with time and that is a big no. Bring back the shine and sheen to your bathroom floor tiles by adding half a cup of vinegar in a gallon of water. Mop the floor with the liquid and you’ll be able to see the results immediately.

4. Do not move heavy furniture around unnecessarily

Make sure to purchase high-quality, thick mats or even protective pads to put under your heavy furniture. This will help in keeping your tiles safe and secure.

Maintaining the beauty of your tiles and home may not be that difficult. You can keep the above tips in mind and take care of your tiles and save money by not having to get the flooring done from time to time.
