Found some stains on your Glazed Porcelain Tiles? Annoyed? Don’t worry, you are not alone in facing such issues. Having stains on the glazed tiles can surely be irritating, but to your surprise, cleaning them can actually be as easy as cleaning the utensils in the kitchen. Thinking how? Keep scrolling as we shall discuss how to care about your glazed porcelain tiles and clean them as well.
Before learning about how to take care of the porcelain tiles, let’s get some basic details about the tiles. Glazed tiles, or say porcelain tiles are man-manufactured ceramic tiles that are composed using finer clays. They are created under great pressure and high temperature compared to ceramic tiles. The best part is that these tiles are very durable, impervious, smooth, finely grained, and dense. They are asthma and child friendly too. Compared to other tiles, they are easy to install, care for, clean, and maintain. Again, if proper care is taken, glazed tiles wouldn’t need any kind of special and costly detergents or cleaners as the glazed porcelain tiles come with a layer of glaze on the surface.
When it comes to cleaning the GVT tiles, all you need to do is vacuum, mop, or sweep the floor regularly. To keep the floor clean, sweeping would be enough. But if the traffic in that particular area is high, you might need to mop and vacuum the floor either daily or after a few days. For some deep cleaning, you can use a sanitizer for eliminating the dirt from the tiles.
Here is how you can clean the glazed tiles generally.
For cleaning the floor with glazed tiles, here is what you shall need.
Firstly, sweep the floor or vacuum it for removing any kind of dust and dirt from the floor. You can also use a dry mop or a broom for sweeping the floor. Next, take a bucket filled with normal tap water. Add some mild cleaning solution or detergent to the water. If you are using any detergent, make sure you use around 50% less quantity of detergent you use for the unpolished porcelain tiles. Once you have moped the floor with the solution, rinse it again using clean water. Make sure you dry the floor carefully and completely for improving the shine of the tiles and preventing any kind of water spots.
In this way, you can easily clean the PGVT tiles with ease and maintain them as well. When cleaning the glazed tiles and improving their shine, you need to avoid using any kind of cleaners or products with acidic solutions or bleach. These kinds of punitive chemicals deteriorate the sealing layer of the tiles which protects it from any wear and tear. Again, if the tiles are slightly foggy or discolored, it is high time you clean the tiles intensely. It should also be noted that the solutions you use for cleaning the glazed tiles are diluted as using the product directly wouldn’t be advisable for the life of the tiles. Using excess water over the solution is not also sensible. After using the solutions or detergents, make sure you rinse the tiles completely for eliminating any kind of chemical or cleaner residue. You can also use a vinegar solution in diluted form for cleaning the tiles.
Now that you know how to clean the glazed tiles, let’s take a look at how to maintain the glazed flooring. Here is a piece of advice from the experts of Lavish Ceramics to help you learn how to maintain glazed porcelain flooring.
The glazed tiles are resistant to stains, etching, and scratches as these floorings are not damage-proof. For this, make sure you don’t expose the tiles to permanent dyes or inks as they might not get removed. Again, the use of permanent markers should also be avoided on these tiles. If in case any of these products are used on the tiles, make sure you rinse the area instantly with warm water. After cleaning it with warm water, use some mild detergent or solution on the mark, rinse it, and dry it completely. No doubt, stains from wine, coffee, juices, or any other eatable substance wouldn’t stain the tiles, it is still advised to immediately clean the area to keep it stain free. While chopping fruits or vegetables, preparing food with sharp utensils, or slicing bread, use a cutting board to protect the tile from any scratches. After your work is over, clean the area to remove any debris.
To keep the glazed tiles well-maintained, you also need to look after the grout. Grout is the gap between two tiles which is filled using some wax, cement, or sealers. This would reduce the chances of the tiles getting broken. Again, it is an essential way of having a well-finished installation process. If any grout is found on the tiles, is it better to seal it which would be safe for the grout and tiles? For joining the gaps or grouts, use a qualified tile sealer, adhesive remover, undiluted sealer, etc., and reapply if required to seal all the grouts. Make sure you wipe off any additional tile sealer using a sponge or cotton towel.
For complete care of the glazed porcelain flooring, it is important that tiles are looked after properly at different intervals or processes like sealing, cleaning, grout restoration, etc. So, now that you are well aware of how to maintain the glazed porcelain flooring, are you ready to install them in your house or office?
