Spring Cleaning: Low Maintenance Solutions

An annual Spring cleaning can be so satisfying and rewarding. This year is no exception, as sanitary surfaces and clean, safe spaces are top of mind for many of us. To achieve this, tile is undeniably the surface of choice. Porcelain tile products, for example, offer distinct advantages over other types of flooring, wall covering, and countertop solutions.

As you embark on your annual spring cleaning, we’d like to highlight a few benefits of porcelain tile along with five tips for easy maintenance.

Why Porcelain Tile?

Porcelain tile is dense and not only inhibits dirt and stains but also prevents most chemicals from penetrating the surface.

Proper Cleaning Care:

  1. Clean Spills Quickly: Mop up spills with a mixture of water and detergent shortly after the spill occurs.
  2. More is Not Always Better: Remember to use only the recommended dilution of detergent when mopping. Higher concentrations of detergent in the cleaning solution will only make it more difficult to rinse.
  3. Allow Time to Act: When dealing with areas where there is a build-up of dirt, the detergent solution must be given time to act on the soil load for generally 5-10 minutes.
  4. Rinse Thoroughly: Remove the dirty detergent solution and emulsified soil. Rinsing is a critical step in the maintenance procedure. 
  5. Dry to Complete: Remove the rinse water with a wet vacuum, dry mop, or towel. Drying the floor will leave you with a final finished, clean look.

With proper care, porcelain tile will provide you with a low-maintenance flooring solution that stands up to the tasks of everyday life. In no time you’ll have your floors sparkling with the signs of Spring.
