Our job is to make sure that your tile stays beautiful and shiny with our specialty: Grout and Tile Cleaning. If you’re wanting to try a couple of diverse ways to first try on your own though, this doesn’t include a deep cleaning though. This is to make your tile shine after doing a deep clean to it.
One of the most natural ways to make your tile shine is with the simple use of a bucket with water and vinegar. For this you’ll want the ratio to be 1:4 meaning one-part vinegar for every four parts of water. Make sure that the water you put in the bucket is always warm water. You’ll then want to apply it to the floor with a mop. You don’t want it to self-dry though so only do a section at a time. Take a towel and dry the floor. This mixture leaves a streak free shine.
Another way to get a shine on your dull floor is with baking soda. This a very common household product that is safe and is used in many DIY cleaning solutions. When creating this cleaning solution, you’re going to want to add a ¼ cup of baking soda, ¼ cup of white vinegar 1 tablespoon of natural dish soap, and 2 gallons of warm water. If you have a favorite essential oil, a couple of drops of that is also very beneficial. The essential oil can also have a cleaning effect when it is of a citrus nature. Once applied to the floor though you will also want to make sure you wipe it up with a towel.
