Do you know, what is the best cleaning solution for ceramic tile floors? If you are like most people who have recently installed ceramic flooring and walls in their home then you probably have some dirt on your floor and wall. This type of flooring can get dusty quickly, especially if you are a person who does not keep up with weekly vacuuming. It is important that you clean up all the dust that has accumulated in your home and on your tiles.
Apply following steps for cleaning ceramic tile for floors and walls:
To clean your ceramic floors and walls, you can either use mild chemicals such as liquid soaps or just plain old baking soda.
If you use a liquid soap to clean your floor then be sure to let the cleanser sit on the floors for about five minutes before you wipe it off. So, if you do not allow the cleanser to sit on your floors for this amount of time then you may end up leaving soap residues on your floors.
If you happen to be someone who likes to sweep and dust, then you are in luck. A good way to get the most out of your weekly vacuuming is to invest in a vacuum cleaner that features a rotating brush head. This helps eliminate a variety of different types of dirt that may be hidden in the nooks and crannies of your tiles.
Another advantage of using a vacuum is that it can help get rid of dust that has been left behind on your tile floors. To use your new vacuum you will need to just put the bristles into the mouth of the machine and start sweeping. Once you have finished sweeping you will want to empty the brush from your machine so that you will not be wasting any of the cleaning solutions that you have made use of.

If you’re struggling to decide between choosing natural stone and porcelain, you are not alone! There is a lot to consider when comparing the two, so we’re here to give you a little guidance on the topic!
Natural stone provides soft, natural, organic tones whereas porcelain tiles are designed to mimic the look of natural stone!
First and foremost… cost!
As you’ve probably noticed, natural stone is a little more expensive than porcelain tiles, and this cost can sometimes extend into the installation of the product too. If you’re building your dream home, then you may want to invest a little more into your tile choices! However if this is simply an investment property, a porcelain option may be a more practical solution for you.
Let’s consider the aesthetic value…
Nothing compares to natural stone, am I right? The look, the feel, the natural variation in every piece… it really can’t be matched. In saying this, there are many porcelain options now that mimic the look of natural stone incredibly well.
Often we have customers who are hesitant to commit to natural stone due to the simple fact that you can’t guarantee exactly what colour batch you’re going to get! However, there are others that believe this inherent variation is part of the beauty of stone (and we agree!). If you’re after very specific colouring, then porcelain might be the best option for you as this is a manufactured product and you know exactly what to expect!
Maintenance and moisture resistance…
Natural stone requires sealing, which we recommend doing prior to grouting. The frequency of sealing will depend on where it is laid, i.e. stone that’s laid outdoors under a tree will need more attention than a stone laid on a bathroom floor for instance. It’s always best to speak with an expert when choosing your stone to consider all factors.
Porcelain, on the other hand, is non-porous and very resilient. This means no sealing or maintenance required only your general cleaning!
AQUA-SEAL GOLD+ is used & trusted by Professionals. Perfect for when you need to make the right sealer choice. Provides Maximum Stain Resistance against oil, food and grime. Inhibits mould and mildew growth. AQUA-SEAL GOLD+ is a below surface, penetrating type, natural look sealer. It is water based and non flammable. This is non yellowing, non coating and UV resistant. It can be used as a pre-grouting sealer to help prevent grout haze and grout staining.
