Ceramic tiled floors are a popular flooring option. Ceramic and Porcelain tiles are amongst the most resilient tile surfaces. They are usually non-porous so they don’t soak up water or stains. They’re durable, but like all floors, they need care and cleaning.Tiles play a very important aesthetic as well as protective role in our homes. Whereas the function of the grout is to keep the tiles fixed in their place by filling the thin gap between the tiles. Over time, when they are not rinsed for a long time, they start appearing discoloured, greasy and grimy. Hence, we recommend you clean the tiles & grout regularly with soap solution and a mild disinfectant.
No matter how hard we try, there always seems to be an area in our home that never seems quite clean enough. For many of us, that area is our tile and grout. Over time, tile might become discoloured. While regular mopping helps, cleaning your tile and grout can be an exhausting and time-consuming process, especially when you’re left to scrub these areas by hand.
CM Graniteworks is a specialised service for tile cleaning, stone cleaning and grout cleaning.

Porcelain tile cleaning, for example, can require different cleaning procedures depending on the finish of the tile.

Our trained technicians begin by inspecting your floor to determine the best treatment process and the proper cleaning agent. Our tile and grout cleaning process is simple and quick and the results will amaze you.
Tiles can be expensive to purchase and install, which is why it is vital to keep them looking good for as long as possible. Professional cleaning not only improves their aesthetic appeal, it is also an important means of preserving the tile, significantly prolonging its life.
For regular light cleaning of porcelain and ceramic tiles, all you need to do is this:
Sweep the floor
Your first step is to sweep away dust, crumbs, and other debris that have accumulated since your last cleaning. Take this time to sweep or clean any throw rugs.
Wipe floor with water
Next, use warm water and a mop. Every couple of weeks clean the floor tiles with a mild detergent mixed in warm water. Only consider chemicals to remove any stubborn stains. When using a detergent, ensure it is of a low concentration. Be sure you have swept up debris beforehand and use a flat mop rather than a sponge mop to keep from pushing dirty water into the grout lines.
Dry the tiles
Dry floor thoroughly after wiping with water, either by air-drying or using a microfiber cloth. A dry flat mop is great as well.
