Your kitchen may be the most well-loved room in your home, but it’s also the messiest. Between heavy foot traffic, spilt food, and greasy splatters, kitchen floors endure plenty of daily wear and tear. To keep them looking their best, clean your kitchen floors regularly.Kitchen Wall Tiles Cape Town
Learn how with our tips for cleaning tile, linoleum, laminate, and wood kitchen floors.
Regardless of which flooring material is in your kitchen, there are a few go-to daily cleaning tasks you can perform to reduce dirt and grime. Sweeping every day prevents a buildup of crumbs, pet hair, and anything tracked in by dirty shoes.
Mopping weekly removes sticky grease and other residue caused by prepping meals. But, with so many flooring options—tile, linoleum, wood, for example—it’s important to know how to clean kitchen floors with solutions that are best for your flooring material.
Using the wrong ingredients, especially those with acidic qualities, could cause damage. Here are the best options for each flooring material.
Ceramic tile is easy to clean, making it a durable choice for kitchen traffic. Clean ceramic kitchen tile with a mix of warm water and mild detergent or liquid dish soap. Use a rag or chamois-type mop rather than a sponge mop, which tends to push dirty water into the grout lines, making them harder to clean. Don’t let your glazed tile floors air-dry—the sitting water will form water spots. Instead, dry the floor with a clean, lint-free cloth immediately after washing.
To clean grimy tile grout, slowly add water to baking soda until it forms a paste. Use a soft bristle brush to scrub kitchen floor tile grout lines with the paste. Rinse the grout lines to remove the baking soda. Dry with a microfiber towel.
Whether you want to protect new kitchen flooring or extend the life of existing floors, a gentle cleaner is crucial. Avoid abrasive cleaners that can scratch or remove the flooring’s finish. Always follow manufacturer suggestions on what types of floor cleaning products to use. If you aren’t sure what’s best for your kitchen floor, go with a gentle homemade kitchen flooring solution.
