Floor-covering trends come and go, but according to ISSA's Value of Cleaning white paper, ceramic flooring is becoming more and more popular in the United States.

There are several good reasons behind this trend, such as that it is inexpensive, durable, made from clay and sand, which are sustainable materials, available in a wide variety and easy to clean and maintain.

But all flooring needs cleaning eventually.

This month's Powr-Flite troubleshooter focuses on the proper care of ceramic tiles, providing the following tips:

  • Clean daily: It is often best to vacuum ceramic tiling using a backpack vacuum cleaner instead of sweeping; this is more effective and helps protect indoor air quality.
  • When mopping, use a clean mop and bucket and a mild, all-purpose cleaner.
  • When heavily soiled, these floors may need to be machine scrubbed.
  • Use a wet/dry vacuum to extract solution and soils from flooring after scrubbing; this helps to prevent them from resettling on the floor.
