How to Clean Polished Porcelain Tile


Most polished porcelain tile surfaces have been sealed or glazed, making them extremely resistant to absorbing stains or soil. But regular cleaning is still essential to keep them looking as good as new. Clean your polished porcelain tile floors and counter tops with an all-purpose cleaner that doesn't have a grease, animal fat or soap base. If you use a cleaner based on any of these, it may leave an invisible film over the tile surface that will trap dirt.

Things You'll Need

  • Broom or vacuum
  • All-purpose cleaner
  • Soft-bristled brush
  • Mop or dry towels
  • Sweep or vacuum any loose dirt, dust and other solid debris off your polished porcelain tile.

  • Spray on all-purpose cleaner or apply it with a sponge to the polished porcelain tile.

  • Let the cleaner sit on the tiled surface for at least five minutes.

  • Scrub the tile with a soft-bristled brush, if necessary, to remove heavy soil.

  • Sop up the dirty cleaning solution with a mop or dry towels.

  • Rinse the polished porcelain tile surface by sponging clean water onto it and then wiping the water up again. Repeat if necessary until there are no traces of detergent or cleaner residue in the rinse water.
