There are two types of tile tiles; glazed and unglazed. Shiny tiles are brighter but also smoother and easier to wear. Jagged tiles have more traction, but can also be stained more easily, especially if they have not been sealed. Each type of tile is prone to scratches and cracks, so care must be taken in the maintenance and cleaning process. Tile is best cleaned using a broom or vacuum to clean up surface remnants, and then mop it with a detergent designed for tiles. Do not use soap products on this floor, because they can leave the film and promote mold growth.

Many tile cleaning kits include stain removers, or you can buy the product separately from your home improvement shop. Mix dry powder with water to form a paste and apply it directly to the stain. Cover the area with plastic and leave it for 24-48 hours. When you remove the paste at the end of the time, the stain will also disappear. After the floor is cleanly glazed, you can apply a sealer to the unglazed tile to help prevent future staining. Keep the floor away from dust and dirt by sweeping or vacuuming regularly. If something spills on the floor, clean it immediately to prevent stains from adjusting.
You can also scrub regularly with a cleaner designed for porcelain tiles, but make sure that the detergent is thoroughly rinsed at the end of the floor so it doesn’t blunt the final result. For ink or rust stains, you can apply full-strength hydrogen peroxide to that point. However, test the inconspicuous area first to ensure that it does not change the color of the tile. For oil and fat stains, use trisodium phosphate or TSP. You can find this substance in your home improvement store in liquid or powder form that you can mix with water. Because TSP is a strong chemical, only use it in a well-ventilated area and use protective eye protection and chemical resistant gloves.
