Polished Tile

First, sweep or vacuum your tile floor. Then use a chamois style mop or microfiber cloth to mop using warm water and a gentle detergent. Dry off the tiles immediately afterward to make polished tile shine.

Natural Stone Tile

Natural stone tiles, such as slate, marble, granite, and other varieties of natural stone, can be readily damaged. As a result, it’s important to follow recommended methods for cleaning them. It’s best to avoid lemon, vinegar, and abrasive or harsh chemical cleaners. Use a specialty cleaning solution instead. Professional tile cleaning in Murrieta uses a method that is safe for your floors.

Ceramic And Porcelain Tile 

Sweep or vacuum tile, then mop using warm water. Avoid corrosive chemicals, bleach, ammonia, or other acids if you do use a cleaning solution—these can erode the surfaces of ceramic and porcelain tile as well as grout.

Finish by going over the tile with warm water only to remove residue if you do use a safe leaning solution. This process can also be followed for wall tiles using a soft cloth.

Over time, ceramic and porcelain tile may look cloudy—usually as a result of residue. To remove it, use a non-abrasive all-purpose cleaner or warm water.

Ceramic and porcelain tile may appear cloudy over time—usually the result of residue left behind. A safe all purpose cleaner or warmer water should do the trick to remove it.


Grout is porous, and as time passes, it will soak up dirt and liquids. It’s also a potential source of mold formation. Reseal your grout on a regular basis by a professional to avoid mold development.

When you do clean it, use one part water and two parts baking soda. Rub the paste onto your grout and let it sit before scrubbing it away with a tiny brush.
