Move out cleaning Atlanta
During a move out cleaning Atlanta, the most common type of flooring nowadays in most homes is ceramic floors. Besides being practical and easy maintenance; ceramic tiles are also hard, durable and water-resistant.Though ceramic tiles can shrug off most stains, it is not susceptible at all. Some stains can be removed easily others will need a lot of elbow grease.
What to do when your ceramic floor is stained
First off, find out if it is possible to remove that stain from your floor. You will need water, liquid detergent, soap, a mop and a small brush. Spread a mixture of water and liquid detergent on the ceramic floor and allow it to act for a few minutes. With a mop, run all over the surface, especially in the stained areas until the stains comes out. If you find yourself face-to-face with more complicated stains, use a broom to rub more intensely into these areas and then wash the entire surface. Do not forget to use a small brush so you can clean the corners and the grout.
After sometime, some kind of residue will remain and will settle at the corner and the grout. As time passes by, it will be more difficult to remove these stains.
When trying a new solution, make sure that you test on the corners near the walls first and see if it reacts badly. Some solution may be too strong and may remove the shine or may fade the color of your floor.
You can also use a homemade recipe when cleaning your ceramic tile. It will be just as effective but it will be safer for your health and the tile itself. Here are a few recipes that you can make and products that you can buy that are proven safe and effective
• In a bucket, mix 3.5 liters of water with a cup of white vinegar and a half cup of ammonia (that you can buy in any drugstore and grocery). Just wash the floor with this mixture as you normally do.
• For the grout, you can spray with commercially available grout cleaner or use a milder brand of bleach. Let it sit for a few minutes before scrubbing with a small brush. Never forget to use gloves and a little elbow grease.
• Try using baking soda with little water to create a paste. Spread on the stain and cover with a damp and warm cloth and let sit for a few minutes before scrubbing.
• Another solution would be 4 parts baking soda to 1 part distilled vinegar.
