It is the last job on the cleaning list: you’ve dusted, cleaned, vacuumed and polished, and all that’s left is to wash the floor and walls of bathrooms. Sorted! But, did you realize that all surfaces do not need the same treatment? Get it wrong and more harm than good you could do.
With a slightly dampened mop/vacuum – dust, or wipe; never use soap-based detergents or other polishes because they can leave a dull film and stop over-wetting. Do not use wax polish: it will be too sticky for the ground. Use a combined water and vinegar solution to avoid traces and stains.
Never be inclined to use abrasive cleaners that can scratch, such as nylon scouring pads or steel wool.
Stubborn stains, like shoe polish, can be extracted with an acetone-containing nail polish remover or other mild solvents–WD-40 also works well. At the same time, it is important to ensure that the floor and
wall tiles are disinfected with a bathroom cleaner like Woosh Swipe White.
With regards to different types of bathroom floors and tiles, here are some guidelines;
Quarry and Ceramic tiles
These require minimal maintenance. Sweep and rinse with a gentle Bathroom Cleaner. Rinse with clear water. Do not use wax polish slippery tiles.
Terracotta tiles are maturing for the first year after construction. Most suppliers store a different cleaner, sealant, and paint, so use your field supplier’s approved goods.
To extract dirt and powder, brush, or vacuum the surface. Wash with a detergent or ground cleaner solution with a mop or rag dampened. Using sparingly water. Rinse after cleaning. Stubborn traces can be covered by gently rubbing with an excellent nylon pad that is discouraged.
Sweep with a soft brush or vacuum, then use a mild Bathroom Cleaner to wipe with a damp mop. Upon cleaning, rinse thoroughly. Use a fabric dipped in a clean cleaning-up liquid or white spirit to avoid scuff marks,
then rinse off.

Polish and dirt build up over time on waxed tiles, and the only way it can be cleaned is to remove the wax and restart. Use a white spirit moisturized fabric. Let it soak in, and wipe away with crumpled newspaper as the wax and dirt begin to dissolve.
