Avoid These Mistakes While Cleaning Tiles and Grout in Your Home

While cleaning the tiles and grout in your home, you need to follow the right procedures if you want to restore the shine. Otherwise, you might not achieve the results that you wish to see. On the other hand, you need to make sure that you are not making the common mistakes while cleaning since they can provide you with undesired results.

If you are in Mernda, Richmond or any other suburb of Melbourne, you can call professional tile and grout cleaners to do the job for you. They have all the tools required to restore cleanliness, and they work attentively. That way, you can save money and energy.

Anyway, now let us delve into the cleaning mistakes that you need to avoid.

1) Hard Scrubbing

If you are carrying out tile and grout cleaning in Mernda or any other Melbourne suburb, you should not scrub the tiles in your home too much. It can cause damage to the tiles as well as the grout.

You can however use a soft cloth and mops. But you should never use scrubbing powders, steel wool or any other rough materials.

2) Applying Chemicals

While cleaning the tile and grout, never use ammonia-based cleaners or bleach as they will lead to discolouration over time. This can happen gradually or the damage can be quick. So, it’s better to use a mild all-purpose cleaner such as vinegar and washing soda, but not soap.

Another good cleaning solution that you can use is white vinegar since it is a natural solution that is very effective against stains. It also removes the dirt and grease build-up on the surface without damaging the tile and grout. Apart from this, sodium carbonate with hot water can also give you fantastic results.

3) Not Cleaning the Spills Immediately

Your tile and grout cleaning in Richmond or any other Melbourne suburb will become easier if you clean the spills immediately.
Naturally, no tile is stain proof. Moreover, if you leave them on the surface for too long, they will get adhered to the surface and removing them will become difficult. Also, they will gradually lead to discolouration.

4) Not Removing Dirt from the Tiles

Similar to that of the spills, you need to remove dirt from the tiles and grout because they can accumulate and get adhered to the surface if there is humidity. This will cause stains which will make the floors look unappealing. So, leaving them to sit on the surface for too long is a mistake. And to avoid it, clean them frequently using a vacuum cleaner.

5) Over-Cleaning the Tiles and Grout

When it comes to cleaning tiles and grout in your Mernda or Richmond home or any other Melbourne suburb, make sure you are not over-washing them.
You must not use an overly wet mop to clean the tiles, and even if you do, make sure to dry them before using the surface. Otherwise, you might end up with stains and mould growth that originates from moisture in the surfaces.
