Ceramic flooring is a fantastic home decor idea. It looks charming, is water-resistant and very durable. And, it comes in two varieties -- glazed and unglazed.
The glazed variety is topped with a layer of glass, which makes it smooth, durable and easy to maintain. However, the unglazed variant is not topped with glass. This makes it prone to dust and dirt, and difficult to clean.
Don’t worry, the right cleaning method will help you care for your unglazed ceramic floors! Here is a detailed step-by-step method to clean your unglazed ceramic tile flooring the right way.
Let’s get you started.
Step 1: Make a Cleaning Solution
Since this variant is difficult to clean, you will need a strong, effective cleaning solution. Fill 3/4th of a bucket with water; add 1 cup of vinegar and 2 tsp. of dishwashing liquid. Stir the solution with a wooden spoon or a clean rag. Remember to wear rubber gloves.
Step 2: Scrub Thoroughly
Dampen a scrubbing pad with water and scrub your ceramic floors. Make sure to scrub the tiles thoroughly. This will remove dirt, dust and debris.
Step 3: Clean the Floor
Take a clean cloth and dampen it in the cleaning solution. Start cleaning the tiles and make sure that you cover the entire floor area. This cleaning solution also removes mould and mildew. Each time you notice the rag turning dark and dirty, rinse it with water and dampen it with the solution again.
Step 4: Wait for Some Time
If the stains are tough, let the cleaning solution sit on the tiles for 10-15 minutes. This will allow the vinegar to cut through the stains.
Step 5: Rinse with Water
Once you treat the entire area with this solution, rinse with plain water using a clean cloth.
This cleaning method will leave your unglazed ceramic tiles clean and sparkling. Give it a try today!
