Steam mops and steam cleaner mops are suitable for all types of floor surfaces, including hardwood and ceramic tiles. The cleaners remove minor and major stains from the ceramic, without damaging the tiles.
A steam mop cleans the ceramic tile with high-powered steam that reaches deep into the grout. The steam dries quickly and does not leave behind any streaks or soap residue like traditional mopping does. Steam mops also clean more efficiently.
When purchasing a steam mop, look for one that works on multiple surfaces. The mop should also have an adjustable handle, which lets you reach tiled areas under appliances, counters and cabinets.
The steam mop should include a towel or fabric piece that attaches to the mop head. Never use the mop without this piece, as the bottom of the mop contains hard plastic pieces. These plastic pieces can scratch or otherwise damage your ceramic tile floors.
