Maintaining Your Hard Floors After Professional Tile Cleaning and Sealing
This Tile Cleaning information applies to anybody that might have floors they will ever mop, EVER. Pretty much if you have anything other than carpet, this information is for you.
Things you will need Include :
- Mop Bucket
- Neutral Cleaner
- Hot Water
- Dirty Floors
If you’re not familiar with neutral cleaners, click the link below to learn what you need to know about neutral cleaners, why they are great for tile cleaning, and how to get them.
—Neutral Cleaners —
Start by mixing your neutral cleaner into your mop bucket with your hot water. Follow the directions on the bottle. You don’t want to overuse or abuse them. That will leave behind sticky residues and leave your floors soapy. So follow the directions, use hot water, and mix it into your mop bucket.
Next, mop your floors, just as you ever have, mop your floors.
Third thing: Dump your nasty mop water into the toilet. You can dump it outside if you’d like too. I recommend into the toilet because they are self flushing. If you spill a little bit, guess what, you can easily mop it up.
BIG KEY *** IMPORTANT PART
Refill your mop bucket after you rinse it. Use just hot water to mop again. That’s right. After your done mopping for the second time, dump that water and mop a third time with just hot water.
Have you ever washed some dishes and set them in the strainer without rinsing them? Have you ever skipped that part, rinsing them? NO! If you wash a cup, you rinse it out and dump it. You see there is soap in it, you rinse it again and dump it. It is the same principle with your floors. This is why we say to mop three times (once with your cleaner and twice with just hot water).
If you have any fans put them down. Box fans, tower fans, whatever you have will work. Ceiling fans work great as well but if you don’t have any fans go to your AC unit and click your fan from auto to on. This will help your floors dry a whole lot faster.
