Get rid of debris. The first thing that you need to consider is the debris on your floor. You should regularly keep it clean here by vacuuming, sweeping and mopping the floor. It is essential to do this because you do not want liquids or solid products to become smashed into the grout in your tiles. Additionally, if someone were to step into something it can damage the tile itself.

Wash with mild detergent. Make sure you use a detergent that is mild and has been used as the product tells you to. You should always read the labels on these products.

Do not use ammonia based cleaners on your floor. It is horrible the amount of damage that these types of cleaners can do to your floor. They can even discolor the floor and the grout of your tile.

Rinse the floor with warm water. After you are done mopping up the floor, take a minute to rinse it with a clean mop with only water in it. This will help to remove the residue left from chemicals and keep the shine of the product streak free.

Dry it. You need to dry your floor. This is very important as if you do not, you are likely to create water spots on your tile. In some cases, they can be absorbed into the tile and cause it to become discolored.
Keep it spill free. Clean up any spills as soon as possible following the directions above.

By doing these basic steps you can help to keep your tile floors clean and free from damage. It takes only a few minutes to really learn how to do, inexpensive cleaning supplies and a bit of attention to make your floors really stand out as being well cared for.
