How do you like FRIDAY FLOORS? It’s a pretty easy way to remember to deep clean the floors, eh?
We’ve already deep cleaned the carpet and hardwood. So today let’s focus on tile!
Instructions to Spring Clean Tile Flooring:
Oh, tile. You wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t for that grout holding you together.
For the sake of today’s task, we’re just going to ignore the grout and just tackle the basic cleaning of all the tile floors in our homes. Does that sound okay to you?
Here’s the plan:
- Sweep your tile flooring to remove all the dust and debris. Better yet, pull out the vacuum and suck it up. Yes, even in the bathrooms. It makes cleaning soooo much easier!
- Next, remove sticky substances with a nylon pan scraper (or a credit/debit card in a pinch).
- Finally, mop with your favorite tile floor cleaner. If you don’t have a favorite, this DIY tile cleaner works great! If you’re physically able, feel free to get down on your hands and knees so you can really see the dirt.
That’s it! I say, “that’s it” like it’s easy. But, I know it’s not. If you don’t have time to follow all the steps, perhaps you could make time to at least sweep/vacuum. Each step will get you closer to a cleaner, more organized home!
If you want a one step gadget to make cleaning hard-surfaced floors a cinch, look into getting a Bissell Symphony All-in-one Steam Mop & Vacuum. It’s kind of expensive but Bissell asked me to review it a few months ago. I liked it then, but the more I use it, the more I love having it!
With two little boys, my floors get dirty on a daily basis. I always dreaded pulling out the broom and then mop. It just took too long. But now I just pull out the vacuum/steam mop and my floors are sparkling in no time! Seriously, I love it.
Consider adding it to your Christmas list 😉
