How you can keep your Saltillo Tile floors clean and shiny

 I have been asked on numerous occasions about my Saltillo Tile floors and how I take care of them + Keep them shiny and clean…at least that is what I attempt. So I decided to write this post about it; and share what products have worked for me and tools have worked for me. How you can keep your Saltillo Tile floors clean and shiny

saltillo tile floor kitchen

I have Saltillo tile all over my house, in the rooms, bathrooms…they look spectacular in my Tuxedo kitchen, in my Moody Black Wall Entryway Glam Modern Living Room -every single room. I have to confess – when we first bought the house I was not too happy with the floors, but I have grown to love them for their beauty, strength and durability.  As a mom to a couple of active kids and a wild dog – who are constantly coming in and out of the house – I am very happy to have floors that can withstand the use and the wear and tear – and still look as good as they do.  Let me share with you my floor care routine.

MY CLEANING ROUTINE

The first step to keeping Saltillo Tile floors clean is to vacuum them daily.  Saltillo tile has uneven edges, it is part of their beauty but also what makes them accumulate dirt in the grout. Vacuuming will help with the accumulation of dirt.   I use an iRobot Roomba to vacuum my Saltillo Tile Floors.  I set The iRobot Roomba for each room and make sure that it has picked up all of the dirt & dust. Doing this daily, really helps me keep my floors clean and my house dusted. I recommend the Roomba because it has the capability to pick up the daily dirt, but also the very fine particles of dust and allergens that can accumulate on the daily. (No I am not Sponsored by iRobot, I am speaking out of daily experience with this product, I love it).

HARD FLOOR CLEANSER

To clean my floors I use a hard floor cleaner. Use something that is powerful enough to clean your floors, but that will not damage their beauty. I use the Shark Hard Floor Cleanser. This product cleans my floors beautifully.  I clean my floors every four days. You can dilute this product in a bucket and mop your floors with your favorite mop.   I use the Shark Dual Cleaner, so I place the solution inside the solution bottle, spray and clean – all with one hand. It’s actually the time I can catch up on tests, emails and social media. One hand is all I need – the Shark Dual Cleaner does the hard work for me.

USE A GOOD POLISH FOR YOUR FLOORS

Once a month, after I have vacuumed and cleaned my floors, I use a gloss polish –  I feel like this add a layer of protection to my Saltillo Tile. It leaves my floors looking so beautiful and shiny – not a high gloss. If you are concerned with the high gloss, I will say that it does wear off. To polish my floors, I do use my Shark Sonic Duo Carpet and Hard Floor Cleaner, I just spray the floor shining solution directly on to the floor -using a buffing pad ( which comes with the Shark Dual Cleaner) I buff/shine each tile.
