That is why Richardson Plumbing wants to give you information you need in maintaining your bathroom’s tile so you never have to dread cleaning it. We want you to be able to protect your bathroom’s tile and keep it looking as new as the day you had it installed. So stop by to see what we are about!

Don’t Skip a Tile!

Once again, bathrooms are not fun to clean but it is important to clean them before you can even tell they are dirty. Once you actually start to notice that your bathroom is looking grimy, you are likely saddled with quite a chore. With that being said, since you don’t enjoy the cleaning process you might want to get it over with as soon as possible correct? Don’t. When you rush while cleaning, you are bound to miss a few areas unintentionally. Take your time: you will benefit from it in the long run.

No matter the pattern of your tile whether it be boarders key, multiple tiles, or a simple one tile pattern, you can maintain the beauty in them with similar techniques. For one, do not try to clean your tile with your normal body soap. Your shower may smell and appear to be clean immediately after doing so, but when you look at it the next day all you will see is soap residue. Instead save an old spray bottle or purchase an inexpensive one to use for keeping your tile looking great. Fill the bottle halfway with heavy duty cleaning solution and then fill the rest up with warm or hot water. After you shower spray your tile down and wipe clean with a squeegee. The reason you want to wipe your tile down with something soft like a squeegee is simple. You should never use anything with rough bristle or made out of any wire cleaning material. If you were to use this, your bathroom tile can show some wear. Scratches will be more and more abundant with these type of materials, so stick to softer materials and instruments. Also, we must let you know not to use bleach on your tile. Yes, bleach is the ultimate cleaning and disinfecting agent loved by all homeowners but this can damage your tile in the long run by stripping the beautiful finish on them.

At Richardson Plumbing, we care about our customers’ bathrooms, from their shower heads all the way down to their tile, so we want to make sure you are getting the most out of your home’s bathrooms.
