We know we can’t always be watching over your tile, so we wanted to share some tips and tricks with you on how to best care for your tile surfaces between our deep cleaning visits. Following these tips will help you to have a cleaner and healthier home in between visits from our team of tile cleaning professionals.


#1 – Use rugs and door mats in the right places. 

In areas where you notice that there is a high amount of foot traffic, it could be a good idea to place a rug or doormat in an area like this. These areas may include a doorway or in front of appliances or vanities. This simple tip can go a long way in keeping your tile cleaner for much longer, as well as mitigating the chance for scratches or other accidents to appear.


#2 – Pet-proof your tile. 

When was the last time that your pet had a pedicure? Okay, maybe not to the same extent as one you would normally get, but how long have their nails been getting? Consider trimming your pets nails often to avoid getting accidental scratches on tile. It is also important to stay on top of vacuuming pet hair and cleaning pet urine accidents on tile as soon as you notice them. The acidity from the urine can wear down some tile surfaces.


#3 – Protect tile from furniture. 

The best type of action for tile maintenance is preventative action. It is a good idea to place some sort of protective padding on the bottom of furniture. That way, as they shift and move from being used, they won’t be able to scratch or otherwise damage tile flooring. Take care to not place furniture that may be too heavy on tile as this may also cause cracking on the surface.


#4 – Sweep and mop tile often. 

Dust and other small particles can quickly accumulate on tile surfaces that may lead to a dull appearance. Because of this, it’s important to include vacuuming or mopping as part of a weekly routine. As it is with the introduction of any new cleaner, be sure to test out a small portion of the tile before doing a mass application throughout your home’s tile. Avoid abrasive cleaners or any that contain ammonia, oils, or bleach.


#5 – Have your tile sealed regularly. 

Tile sealant is critical towards having good quality tile for years to come. However, the protective seal on your home’s tile surfaces in Columbia is set to wear out eventually. Because of this, it’s critical to keep your tile protected by having it resealed often. Grace Chem-Dry proudly offers this as part of our tile cleaning service for homes in Columbia and the surrounding areas. We strive to give you cleaner and healthier tiles for longer.
