Tile is an easy material to maintain, even when it comes time to clean it. In order to clean tile floors, you are going to need to follow a few steps. Here are the basics of how to clean tile floors effectively.

Step 1 - Remove the Dirt

The first thing that you will need to do is remove any dirt or debris on the surface of the tile. This can be done with a broom and a dust pan. You could also potentially use a vacuum cleaner for this job. This should be done at least once a week and in some cases, twice a week.

Step 2 - Select a Cleaner

There are several different types of cleaners that you could use for this job. You could purchase a commercial tile cleaner from the store. These types of cleaners are specially formulated to be used on tile floors. If you do not want to purchase a tile cleaner, you could also mix vinegar with water to create a potent tile cleaner.

Step 3 - Mop

Once you have mixed up your cleaner in the mop bucket, you need to mop the tile floor. Use a wet mop and then mop the floor with your cleaner. After that, rinse the floor with clean water and allow it to dry.
