No matter what the material, your bathroom floor can be cleaned effectively.
Like the others, sweep your floor before you start cleaning it. To begin cleaning, a liquid cleaner is the best way to go. Any hardwood cleaner can be used to clean your floor. Mop the floor with the cleaner without applying too much cleaner to the floor. Once the cleaner is applied to the floor, rinse the mop in clean water and then mop off the cleaner from the floor. After the cleaner is removed, carefully dry the floor with a dry towel or rag.
Carpet isn’t very common in bathrooms because it is very difficult to clean. With all of the heat and moisture in your bathroom, it is easy for carpets to harbor mildew and bacteria. If a carpet gets dirty in your bathroom, there are only a few ways that you can take care of it. First, shake your rug outside so that all of the loose debris falls out.
The first thing you need to find out is the type of tile you have. Tile typically comes in a few different kinds of materials. These materials are ceramic, slate, marble and granite. All of these share similar methods of cleaning, but there are still distinctions between them that you want to keep in mind. Below you can find the proper ways to clean each different kind of tile.
For ceramic tile, consider the following. Make sure you have clean water, all purpose cleaner and two rags (one dry and one wet). A popular substitute for a commercial cleaner is a mixture of baking soda and water, an effective way to clean grout. Another way to utilize a cleaning solution without buying it is to mix a cup of white vinegar with a gallon of water to make a more natural cleaning solution if you choose to go that route.
Slate, Marble and Granite Tile
Instead of all purpose cleaner, it would be in your best interest to use stone cleaner. This is because many all purpose cleaners contain chemicals that can be harmful to natural stone. Also, stay away from any vinegar or other acid based cleaners as well. Use a neutral pH for your cleaner and use a rag with water to clean it similar to the way you would clean ceramic tiles. Make sure that you rinse the floor with water and then dry it after you are done. Ensure that the floor is swept regularly to prevent dust or debris from building up.
No matter what kind of bathroom flooring you have, there is a way to clean it and there is a way to maintain it.
