There are many benefits to adding a tile floor, countertop, backsplash, or other areas to your home.
Tile is affordable, stylish, and durable. But one of the biggest benefits of tile is that it won’t easily stain and it can be cleaned quickly and easily using common household items you already likely have in your home.

Tile is a hard, durable surface made by heating sand and clay to very high temperatures. The result is a hard, protective surface that is resistant to dirt and staining.
Cleaning even the dirtiest tile floors is remarkably simple. First, remove surface dirt and dust using a broom and dustpan. You can even use a vacuum cleaner if you prefer.
Then simply use a mop filled with warm or hot water — and a little dish soap if you would like, although it’s not always necessary — to pick up any residual dirt and grime.
Spots that are stained or sticky can be gently scrubbed using the mophead, occasionally rinsing the mop in the bucket of water and wringing out excess moisture before repeating the process all over again.

Tile countertops are just as easy to keep clean. Use a Swifter or a Dust Buster to remove surface dirt and dust. Then use a spray bottle filled clean, warm water to spray the tile surface before using a cloth to wipe up the remaining dirt and grime.
If the grout between the tiles becomes dark, you can gently scrub these areas using an old toothbrush or even a small scrub brush. When you are finished cleaning, simply rinse with clean water and dry with a dry, clean cloth.
Try to avoid using acid-based cleaners on your tile surfaces because these can fade and dull the tiles.
