Simple Tips to Keep Your Tiled Floor Looking Brand New

Tiled floors are a popular choice for many homeowners because they are durable, easy to clean, and come in a variety of styles and designs. However, just like any other type of flooring, tiled floors require regular maintenance to keep them looking their best.

Section 1: Sweep or vacuum the floor regularly

The first step in maintaining a tiled floor is to keep it clean. Sweep or vacuum the floor regularly to remove dirt and debris that can scratch the surface of the tile. Use a soft-bristled brush attachment to avoid scratching the tile, and be sure to get into the corners and along the edges of the room.

Section 2: Mop the floor with a mild detergent solution

Mopping your tiled floor regularly is essential to keeping it clean and looking brand new. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as these can damage the tile and grout. Be sure to rinse the mop frequently and change the water as needed. Our suggestion would be Bio Hygiene All Surface & Floor Cleaner – not only does this work great on tiled floors and smell good too, but it’s made in the UK and biodegradable!

Section 3: Clean up spills immediately

Accidents happen, and spills are a common occurrence in any household. However, it’s essential to clean up spills immediately to prevent staining and damage to the tile and grout. Use a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb the spill, and then clean the area with a mild detergent solution.

Section 4: Seal the grout

Grout is the material that fills the gaps between the tiles, and it can be susceptible to staining and damage over time. Sealing the grout can help protect it from spills and dirt, and keep it looking its best. You can purchase grout sealant at most hardware stores, and it’s easy to apply. Simply apply the sealant to the grout with a brush, and wipe away any excess.

Section 5: Protect the floor from scratches and dents

Tiled floors can be susceptible to scratches and dents, especially if you have furniture with sharp edges. Protect the floor by placing felt pads or furniture sliders under the legs of your furniture. Avoid dragging heavy objects across the floor, as this can also cause scratches and dents.
If you’re dealing with a tiled floor in a business environment, you might want to consider investing in a Floor Scrubber/Polisher. Plus if you’re after a good floor polish with fantastic slip-resistance, then look no further than Diamond Extra.


Maintaining a tiled floor doesn’t have to be a chore. With these simple tips, you can keep your tiled floor looking brand new for years to come.
