Types of Tile Cleaning Methods
There are several different types of tile cleaning methods we use, and types of tile that we encounter on an ongoing basis. Knowing which is which is critical in how they’re cleaned.
Ceramic Tile Floor Cleaning:
Sometimes referred to as quarry tile. Ceramic tiles are composed of a High temperature baked clay, mineral, and water mix. Once they’re oven glazed they’re treated with a glass coating and baked again. Not only are they stain and scratch resistant, they’re very hard.
For tile floor cleaning we recommend cleaning them once a week by sweeping or vacuuming the dirt from the floor, followed with a damp sponge or mop and mild cleaning solutions.
Porcelain Tile Cleaning
Porcelain tile is Ceramic tile that’s more dense and baked at a higher temperature. This in turn makes it less porous, harder, and in turn more durable. We recommend the same cleaning procedure used for Ceramic tile.
If more aggressive cleaning is needed we may use a floor cleaning machine equipped with a mildly abrasive pad or stiff bristle brush. For tile shower cleaning we use the same procedure, but do any scrubbing by hand. For tile back splash cleaning we may use a mild solvent for removing any oils or grease build up.
Marble Tile Floor Cleaning
Cleaning marble floors is much more sensitive than other types of tile. Any cleaners used have to be PH neutral or there’s a risk in damaging the floor. We recommend to have your marble floors professionally cleaned so that there’s no risk of damage. While marble is a very hard stone, it’s also porous and easier to stain and scratch.
Granite Tile Cleaning
Granite is a very delicate type of tile and granite tile cleaning should be done with care, after all it’s very expensive. All spills on your granite should be wiped up immediately. Also we recommend having your granite sealed annually. We recommend a daily light cleaning for granite to keep it looking good. A thorough cleaning should be done periodically with an approved granite cleaner.
Never use an abrasive, bleach, or or detergent based cleaner on granite tile. Any of these risk discoloring the granite. Beyond the daily maintenance cleaning, we recommend for home and business owners to have their granite tiles professionally cleaned.
Quarry Tile Cleaning
Quarry tile is made of clay and is purposely UN-glazed so that it maintains a rustic look. It makes a great commercial tile and is found mostly in restaurants, kitchens, and bathrooms where heavier traffic is common.
Cleaning quarry tile is a straight forward process and involves vacuuming or sweeping up any excess dirt. This is followed by a specially formulated cleaning solution applied with a wet mop. Ground in dirt may call for a deep cleaning. We use our floor scrubbing machines and a mildly abrasive pad. Afterwards the floor may need to be resealed. For badly soiled floors we recommend hiring a professional floor cleaning company.

Tile and Grout Cleaning is Healthier
It’s fairly common to find mold, mildew, grease and allergens on a tile and grout surface. The primary reason for this is where tile and grout are normally found, which is usually in a bathroom, kitchen or a high traffic area. Bathrooms and kitchens are very “high moisture areas” proving mold and mildew can readily find a home in such an environment. Having your tile and grout cleaned and sealed professionally can prevent this buildup, which in turn will result in a healthier and more visually appealing environment. Only a professional cleaning service can remove these types of grime. Call us today and we can get your tile and grout cleaning project started for you.
