I am working with some old red shower tile that is proving to be tricky. Deep grout lines and heavy calcium buildup. I'm going to try a few things but I think it may be beyond restsoration.

VCT floors

According to me VCT floors are hard to maintain and needs a professional cleaning service.

White tile floor and wooden floor is very tough to clean and wash.You need to wash them with extra care.

Wooden floors most certainly are very hard to clean, but I agree with CassieSmitty that VCT floors (especially white ones) are the real challenge. Recently we had quite the problems with such flooring at one of our customers.

I work as a team leader at Strong Move in the end of tenancy cleaning team.

Hey EcoFriendlyCleaning


I always have a hard time cleaning the white floors. They are the first to come to mind as a cleaning nightmare. But the other side of me thinks that black or dark floors might be even worse, as they show every little speck of dust.I have tried ample of products but they all are same.Looking for some good cleaning products.

Hardwood

Personally, I find hardwood floors to be the most difficult to clean because when there's really sticky stuff on it that's hard to peel off or even stains that don't come off with just a towel wipe, it can be tricky to get the dirt off without actually damaging the hardwood itself. Often you need to resort to vigorous floor scrubbing and that itself basically guarantees that you'll be leaving a huge scratch mark on it

for me - hardwood floors. It's necessary to know hardwood floors don't like wax cleaners, vinegar or oil soaps

VCT floors are hard to clean, but with eco carpet pro, it will be more reliable and easy, because of its eco-friendly service.

No secret - white wood floors are the hardest. Never suggest someone having that at home

White tile floors arent hard for me to clean. In fact, I think they are easier, because you can SEE the dirt. Hardwood floors and some laminates are, for me, the hardest to clean. Hardwood especially, because you have to remove any spills, and wood floor cleaners dont get them up well. I use Meyers Clean Day all purpose for this, and sometimes have to use a plastic knife to gentle scrape up something spilled (such as a carmel candy). After I get the spills or whatever up, THEN I use hardwood cleaner. It takes longer because of hacving to mop with the wood grain.

Tile floors that have a ridged surface (the ones that look like wood) can be tricky.

Old linoleum floors are a pain, too. I read somewhere the best cleaner for them is something like Scrubbing Bubbles. I havent tried that yet, but it makes sense.

Terrazzo floors are also difficult, because they are OLD, and if they are a dark color, you cant see where the worst dirty spots are.

Porcelain, ceramic and wooden floor are the most difficult ones to maintain. I have used Mr. Homecare for my wooden and ceramic floor cleaning. They have done cleaning and floor polishing without damaging them, leaving it stain free.

I dont find ceramic floors hard, because thats what most floors are here. The only big problem is dirty grout, and I always dread hearing a new client tell me her grout needs cleaning. Because I had knee replacements, kneeling isnt an option for me.
I use Meyer's Clean Day stuff on almost all floors except hardwoods and some laminates. It cleans great and smells wonderful. Watkins stuff is also excellent. An d you dont need to use a lot. My clients always are pleased with how fresh their home smells when I am done.

In my experience, waxed wood floors are the hardest to clean. It can be damaged by even small amounts of water.

Hi Annie,

You need to keep damp mops away from this surface, and instead sweep, dust mop or vacuum regularly.
