As for the videos you mentioned. Sure they can be a great source for basic information. After gathering your basic knowledge. Do some practice jobs on friends and family. You'll want to know your system prior to going at a paid job.

Well, as per my point of view that tile cleaning is not difficult task. You use Oxygen bleach products. These are material and shade safe, non-toxic and do not generate dangerous toxins. They easily eliminate spots of all types with little rubbing. It's actually quite exciting the way it work.

Really cleaning is not a difficult task but you must have some precautions because a single small mistake may be harmful for you. Before using any chemical or any experiment you must have to be aware about its effects because it will fall negative impact if you vanish your client’s floor and tile.

Cleaning The Tiles

Hi! I agree that we must be careful in choosing the product that we are going to use because it might destroy our facilities. You can use any brand as long as it matches the capabilities of the cleaner so you better read the product description carefully. There are many products which are for general use but if you want to clean the desired part, you must choose the product for specific problem. Moreover, we must also take care of our health while cleaning to it much advice to use safety gadgets like gloves and mask during the cleaning process. That's all.

We use vinegar. It's good stuff. You'll want to spray vinegar in all the places where mold grows most easily. This includes places like the sealing underneath your faucets, on your shower curtains, in the grout of your tile floor, or near the edges of the linoleum, if that's what you have for flooring.

There are different kind of tiles and you have to apply different cleansers as per the types of tiles. Most of the people are going to use baking soda and vinegar with warm water to clean their houses.

Make sure cleaning the type of tile with the right products and it will make your tile look good when it cleans stubborn stains. In my view Oxygen bleach products are the best and ideal, the best thing about this is color safe, non-toxic and do not produce harmful fumes.

Eventually, cleaning is not too difficult which needs a proper training. I think for cleaning tile and floor you must use some products which help you to clean your floor. I will suggest you that using vinegar, backing powder into water clearly helps you to clean your floor. So, you must obey this tips for cleaning floor, tile or grout.

Honestly, I find YouTube is the best resource when it comes to wanting to learn about this stuff. Plus it's free! Haha. You can put the money you'd be spending at the school into actually buying the tools! Good luck
