One practical reason for using tiles is that it is not only very resilient and hard, but also very easy to maintain. Cleaning the tile is very easy. A simple process of cleaning involves:
- Sweep the floor: ensure that you sweep the floor daily. You can also use vacuum cleaners. This cleans the loose dust and dirt that accumulate on the floor. If this dust is made to sit for a long time, they turn into grime that is quite stubborn and requires a lot of scrubbing.
- Mop the floor: use warm water and detergent to mop the floor, especially if there are stains on the floor. Mopping the floor daily retains the shine of the tile and makes it look new.
- Dry the floor: use a dry mop to dry the floor. This will prevent new dirt from settling on the floor, and creating a stain.
Kitchen tiles in Singapore are cleaned in this way. Apart from this try and avoid acidic or bleaching cleaners as they may damage your floor. Avoid wax-based cleaners and never scrub with metal based scrubbers as they may cause permanent scratches.
