Ceramic tile is gaining popularity for many homeowners, and with good reason. Tile flooring is attractive and durable, it raises the value of your home and it's more forgiving than carpet when it comes to cleaning spills from sodas, fruit juices and coffee. Nonetheless, your tile floor is still susceptible to stains, so a little special attention is required now and again. A sparkling tile floor not only looks attractive, but the cleaner the floor, the healthier your home.
At first glance, your floors may not appear dirty, but a closer inspection could reveal stains and ground-in dirt. Try comparing the color of your tile and grout in a high-traffic area to a less traversed spot such as under the couch or in the corner of the room. More than likely, you will notice a significant difference in color; and that means it's time to clean. Grout can be really tricky. It's made from cement and sand which are both very porous, and therefore very absorbent. Dirt and oil, particles of food, basically anything moist that falls onto the floor becomes embedded in your grout resulting in discoloration.
Humid conditions in bathrooms create ideal breeding grounds for mold and mildew. Areas that stay wet, such as under bathmats and along shower walls are especially prone to mold and mildew build-up. Left untreated, mold and mildew can spread rapidly. Not only is this growth unsightly (and kind of smelly), it can affect your health as well. Eye irritation, running nose, headache and shortness of breath are a few symptoms of mold sensitivity.
