Handy Tips to Keep Your Floor Tiles Looking Their Best

When it comes to choosing the right flooring for your home or commercial property, there are a number of choices such as wood, tiles, laminate or carpet–all of which have their benefits. Generally, tiles are the traditional hard surface choice for the likes of kitchens, bathrooms, entrance ways etc., however, in recent years our team at Method Floors Solutions Gold Coast has seen a marked increase in their popularity for a number of reasons.

  • Durability/Lifespan – with proper installation and care tiles can last for 20 years plus. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are two of the best types to choose from. They are perfect for high traffic areas and are very resilient when it comes to withstanding spillages and wear. If a tile is cracked or chipped, it can be replaced quite easily without effecting the rest of the floor area.
  • Low Maintenance – tile cleaning is as easy as regularly sweeping, vacuuming or mopping the floors without the need for harsh chemicals.
  • Environmentally Friendly – they are a natural insulating component in your home, i.e.cool in summer and warm in winter. With regular care tiles remain free of allergens such as dust, pollen and dirt, making them the ideal choice for people who suffer from asthma and allergies.

Having highlighted some of the main benefits of floor tiles, we need to acknowledge that they really do take a hammering, especially in high traffic areas. By following some simple steps, you can ensure your tiles retain their shine and luster for many years to come.

Regular cleaning: As mentioned above, vacuum or sweep tiles to keep dust and debris off the floor. When there’s spillage, immediately wipe and clean with a sponge and soap and water mixture to avoid potential staining from happening.

Grout – this is a special mortar that joins tiles together. Contrary to the tiles themselves, the grout tends to fade and stain faster. If not maintained properly, water and grime can seep through the grout and cause damage. When it comes to cleaning, some folk like to DIY and research the internet for grout cleaning recipes, however, we would strongly recommend that you be very careful and spot check to avoid the risk of damaging your tiles or grout.
