hello..all the best for your new business ... Stains on tiles are mostly caused by hard water, mildew, and rust marks.... The grout among tiles also gets very dirty over time if it isn't cleaned frequently….You have to use some harsh chemicals to remove stains from your tiles, wear gloves and goggles while applying these chemicals...

These stains can get really hard over time. Its therefore essential to have the fixtures and tiles that are vulnerable to such deposit stains cleaned every week. While commercial cleaners can get this done quite easily, the natural way to try would be vinegar and baking soda.

If you are looking for a ready to use product, a cleaner with hydrochloric acid should serve the need.

Re:cleaning floor tile

Isn't it also going to depend on what kind of tile you're dealing with? I.E. ceramic,VCT, etc...

For ceramic tile you could try mixing together 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup lemon juice, 1/4 cup vinegar and 1/2 tsp. detergent in the spray bottle then scrubbing. You may need to repeat the treatment with an additional 1/2 cup of lemon juice for resistant hard water stains.

How to maintain your floors?


The home of many important parts of the decks that do not agree with the majority of good will should know the best way to clean floor tiles from people who have.
Part finished cleaning definitely very well with the tile floor neat and clean. Leave the area is too big or small, clean and best way to do the right thing is always a need for cleaning and floor free of the disease, and protection. And detergents, cleaning tools, cleaning the streets, these things must be carefully chosen and are in use.

The best apparatus for cleaning floor tiles
Clean vacuum tile floor requires a strong, but soft rubber or brushes. Them with a cloth or sponge and cover better. This will remove dust and grime, sticky and greasy more easily.

First the tiles as walkways, stone, those are not closed to the use of aggressive and difficult to brush / vacuum to remove dirt and well.

Take advantage of the vacuum cleaner is great with the nozzle extension is provided with a series of plastic and not just the end of the blower or vacuum to clean the tiles

The end of the rubber cleaning tool of Bush with a long handle and the officer to enter the water to remove the water helps to clean the tile floor.

The tiles can be cleaned and not automatic, but is particularly suitable for covering a large area.

Acid on floors? I guess that would be absolutely detrimental!

Try with vinegar and warm water. It works at home. I use it for polishing only. White marks with at least get softer and easy to scrub away.

I think, Vinegar is the best for floor. you should never use vinegar on marble floors. Apply the vinegar solution to the floor with your wet mop, and allow to dry. It will make your floor sparkle once again and bring it back to life.

Is it ok to use greasy polishers on marble tiles, they get slippery, but well-polished.I try to mop them, but eventually, they are slippery again.

Baking soda works pretty well and it's also a very cheap way to do it. I keep my floors clean with that.

Easy shine multi use floorcare product gives you a excellent positive result for clean white satins. It is suitable for most floors like vinyl,asphalt,marble etc. It is quick and easy to use and provide a slip resistant and glossy finish.

The purpose for which ammonia is used is cleaning and its a good cleaning agent because it helps in removing stubborn stains and dirt from the floor and glass surface. If we use ammonia with ease and in its full concentration or even diluted with water or soap to serve as good cleaning agent.
