Overview

Tile floors are a low-maintenance flooring option, but every now and then, they need some extra attention. If that time has come, it's time to break out the mop and tile cleaner for a 10-minute refresh. Your floors will be good as new in no time!

Steps

1Gather your tools and materials

Below you'll find all the tools and materials you'll need to complete this project.

2Remove any surface dirt and dust

Sweep the floor tiles, making sure there's no residual dust and dirt sitting on the surface. 

3Add tile cleaner

Add the tile cleaner to your bucket with the water as per the instructions. Apply and then leave to sit for 1–2 minutes.

4Wash

Mop with clean water to rinse thoroughly. Allow to dry naturally or use a cloth to wipe your tiles dry to prevent streaks. 

5Scrub stubborn areas

For stubborn grime, apply again, leave for 3–5 minutes. If required, scrub at the grout using a tile-suitable scourer, then rinse thoroughly again with a mop.
