Secrets to Keeping Tile Clean

When it comes to cleaning your bathroom, there are a lot of nooks and crannies to cover. However, one of the main (but most overlooked) areas you’ll need to give a good scrubbing to is your tile. The thing is, this task isn’t always the easiest to accomplish. That being said, here are some tips and tricks to make the process a breeze.

Daily is Best

In a perfect world, your bathroom would automatically be clean every single day, but that’s typically a dream for most. However, if you happen to clean your bathroom tiles on a daily basis (and we’re not talking about an intense cleaning), then that will help out in a big way! For instance, if you see a little residue on a tile, grab some cleaner and a cloth, and give it a good ol’ scrub. Then, when it comes time to give your tiles a heavy-duty cleaning, the task at hand won’t be as strenuous.

Start from the Top

When you clean your bathroom tile, do you start from the bottom or the top? Well, if you make the latter option a habit, then you’re already ahead of the game! Believe it or not, some homeowners start from the bottom and work their way up, which isn’t the best option (anything that’s cleaned from the top will run towards the bottom, making you clean it all over again).

Take Your Time

Cleaning your bathroom shouldn’t be considered a race — you should take your time. When homeowners do everything in their power to go as fast as possible, it can lead to errors, streaks, and spots. Therefore, take the time to thoroughly clean each surface, make sure no corner goes overlooked, and even make sure to dry the tile if it happens to still be wet. Doing this will make all tilework look as good as new!
