Tips of Wooden and ceramic tile flooring

Clean floors enhances the curb appeal of your home. Keeping it clean and shiny you can add more beauty to your interior and create a healthy environment too. Sometimes it becomes difficult to maintain, its shine for a long period of time. I would suggest some tips that will be helps you.

1. Do vacuum or sweep daily to remove any loose soil.
2. Use micro-fiber mop that picks up all the dirt and leaves behind.
3. Pour the ingredients into a bucket and use a micro-fiber mop to clean. After that if you do use a mop and the on your hands and knees method, you must sure to wipe in a circular motion across the floor.
For wooden floor you should try these tips, use boiling water and two teabags to clean wooden floors. It creates a beautiful shine for wooden floors.
1. Put two tea bags in the boiling water for a few minutes.
2. Pour the tea into a bucket and take a soft clean cloth and wring it out in the tea.
3. Make sure cloth must need to be damp,not to be soaked. This will help the floor to dry quickly.

Clean the Floor

HEHE, I think Vacuuming is best if you want to clean the floor without scratching the floor. You can install software to clean dirt without damaging your home. Step two is to select the correct wood flooring. Many mopping liquids need to be mixed with water, or they must be thoroughly cleaned to remove the wound.

Ceramic floors can be cleaned easily with warm water. But be sure to sweep or vacuum floor first to remove loose dirt, food crumbs and other pieces of debris.

For wooden floor cleaning use boiling water and tea bags. The tannic acid in tea creates an effective shine for the wooden floor. Add two tea bags steep in the boiling water for a few minutes. Pour the tea into a bucket. Take a soft cloth and wring it out in the tea. The cloth merely needs to be damp, not soaked. This will enable the floor to dry quickly

Bona wooden floor cleaner for the wood is fine and you can easily buy it at a store.Boiling tea bags in a clients house? seriously...

Ceramic tile-use a neutral floor cleaner after vacuuming.If the grout gets really dirty I'd go with interior floor pressure cleaning by a pro.

If you know the floor actually is WOOD, vacuum or sweep thoroughly first, then use a cleaner made just for wood floors. Laminate floors, which can look and feels just like wood, need a different approach, using a different type of cleaning fluid. The system I use works wonderfully well. I buy white washcloths, and they hook right onto a Swiffer mop head. When mopping I dampen the cloth first and then spray on the cleaner. I mop a smallish area and when the cloth stays white, its clean! My customers really appreciate this attention to detail, and are very happy with my results.

When the cloths start to look dingy, into the trash they go. I buy the cloths at Dollar General, and it costs about $5 for 6 of them. They are a textured washcloth, not flat. Howver, on real wood floors, I prefer using a FLAT white cloth because when you clean wood floors, you always mop WITH the grain, and using a textured cloth seems to leave marks.

Great tips for cleaning a tile shared by everyone. Although it can be clean by using warm water, but you can do is to vacuum. For optimal result its probably best left to tile and grout cleaning professionals.

Nonsense!!!! Only if the grout is in terrible shape or has mold should a "tile specialist" be called by the home owner. Here in Florida most homes have tile. Maybe we are just used to it, but cleaners here clean tile floors every day. It isnt hard, and unless you use a harsh chemical, will NOT be harmed by being cleaned. If the grout is stained, make sure the owner is aware of it. There is a product you can buy at local hardware stores that paints stained grout. This is not part of normal cleaning. It is something the owner has to take care of.
