Clean Your Tile Regularly
It’s a good idea to make sure that you clean your tile regularly. Vacuum the floor every few days to pick up any sort of dirt that may be on it. The faster you pick up the dirt, the cleaner your tile will stay. Life is busy and it can be tricky to keep up with housework, so try something like this: make a schedule for each room. Monday, the kitchen gets cleaned, Tuesday, the bathroom, Wednesday, the living room, and so on. Focus on one room each day and you’ll be able to keep the whole house looking spick and span much more easily. Make sure you don’t forget any wall tile! Wall tile can be easy to forget because you don’t walk on it so you may think that it doesn’t get dirty as quickly. Unfortunately, it does. Make sure you wipe down all wall tile regularly.
Clean It Quickly
When you have children messes happen regularly, and even if you don’t have children you may find that messes happen regularly. Have a klutzy day and you may feel like you’re dropping everything on the floor. With our busy schedules, it can be easy to ignore whatever small mess you’ve made, telling yourself that you’ll clean it later. This is definitely something you should not do! As soon as you make a mess, clean it thoroughly and properly. The sooner you clean it, the less likely it is to stain.
