The flooring in your commercial space is a statement of your business’s cleanliness and attention to detail. Though it is crucial to keep your floors clean, it can be difficult to find the time in your busy day to prioritize maintenance. Among all the different types of flooring, ceramic tile stands out for its durability and easy maintenance. It can preserve its beauty for years without heavy maintenance or expensive upkeep. Preserve your ceramic tile investment and ensure its longevity with the simple cleaning it requires to stay in optimal condition.

Let’s look at some maintenance tips for your commercial ceramic tile flooring.

Daily Ceramic Tile Maintenance Tips:

  • Sweep or vacuum ceramic floors daily with a soft bristle broom or a vacuum cleaner that contains a hard floor setting. This will remove the dirt and debris that accumulate each day, which will eliminate the risk of surface scratches over time. Pay close attention to high traffic areas.
  • Use a damp mop complete with a pH-neutral cleaner and a microfiber head to clean the ceramic tiles. You can do this several times a week, daily, or as needed. Avoid overly mopping to prevent any moisture from seeping into the grout.

Weekly Deep Cleaning for your Ceramic Tile Flooring:

  • Thoroughly mop the tile at least once a week. Prepare a solution of water and pH-neutral cleaner, and make sure you reach all the corners and edges when you mop. Rinse the mop head frequently throughout the process to avoid tracking dirt.
  • Clean the tile grout once a week, or as needed. Make sure you have a soft brush and grout cleaner, or you can also use a mixture of baking soda and water. Scrub the grout lines gently and rinse with clean water to prevent grime buildup, and to keep it looking fresh.

Monthly & Seasonal Maintenance for Ceramic Tile Floors:

  • Keep an eye out for stains! Use a ceramic tile stain remover if there are any visible or concerning stains on the floor.
  • Seal Your Grout! Every six months to a year, apply a grout sealer to clean and dry grout lines to prevent any staining or moisture damage. You can hire a professional cleaning service, like Jack Laurie Cleaning Services, if you have a larger commercial space and need help with the task.
