A tile steam cleaner can save you time, energy and effort when it comes to getting your tiles and grout clean. No need to “break your back” scrubbing grout. These steam cleaners will effortlessly lift the dirt right out!
Steam cleaning your tile is a great way to clean and sanitize your home. We use tile in our kitchens, bathrooms, as flooring and even for outdoor flooring.
There are many ways that you can clean your tiled floors. This includes using generic house cleaners. When cleaning your tile, you want to pay attention to the surface of the tile and grout which can absorb a lot of dirt.
Many people use cleaners like Mr. Clean or Lysol to clean their tiles. A homemade solution that some people use is vinegar and baking soda. This is scrubbed into the grout with thick brushes and then washed.
A great little trick I learned is to use Windex to clean tiles - try it, you won't be disappointed ...
If you have heavy stains on your tile, you can use diluted hydrogen peroxide or bleach to clean. However, you should be very careful when using these chemicals as they are very dangerous and you should follow the instructions for their use to the letter.
One thing to note though, do not use those chemicals on colored grout as it will become discolored.
Besides using chemicals, if you want an environmentally friendly way of cleaning then you might want to use a tile steam cleaner. Tile steamers only use water and steam to clean, however I’m sure you’d be surprised by how powerful and effective they are at doing so.
Besides being eco friendly, they are also people-friendly! Those other methods of cleaning your tile involve back breaking work. You have to manually scrub the grout. However, with a tile steamer, all you have to do is direct the steam across the grout and wipe away the dirt and water.
The steam cleaner emits steam at high pressures which cause the dirt in your grout to surface. Some homeowners worry that the pressure of the steam would break their tiles, but I assure you that your tile is much stronger than you think.
