When it comes to removing tough stains from tile surfaces, you need to first analyze the type of tile. There are two kinds of tiles – porous and non-porous. Most natural stone tile are porous. They tend to absorb water in their pores and lead to stubborn and dense stain formation. Moreover, mold and mildew breed within these pores. Marble is a porous natural stone, while porcelain is a non-porous tile. Staining also takes place on non-porous surfaces, but it is not deep-rooted. Here, we shall discuss how to remove tough stains from both these surfaces.
How to Remove Tough Stains from Marble Tile?
Marble stone is very porous stone and absorbs the moisture and dampness it is exposed to. Any food or liquid spills get absorbed deep inside the surface leading to germ breeding, mold and mildew formation and stains. To remove stains from tile, you need to clean the marble stone with Imperia Deep Clean – a high quality penetrating product which cleans and sanitizes the tile and grout and at the same time knocks off the stains, mold and mildew at the root level. It is alkaline in nature and does not harm the integrity of the stone. It gets deep into the pores and knocks off hidden bacteria, germs, mold and stubborn stains at the root level, rendering a thoroughly sanitized and prepped surface.
Marble tile cleaning is incomplete without cleaning the grout in between. This porous grout absorbs dirty water and leads to staining and mold formation. Imperia Deep Clean also renders your grout spotless and sanitized at the root level. Use a grout brush to help your scrub the grout lines properly.
After you have removed the tough and deep-rooted stains from your marble tile, you can seal the grout and tile and then maintain it regularly by using a maintenance cleaner. Imperia Maintenance and Valore Maintenance are excellent products from pFOkUS for light tile cleaning.
How to Remove Tough Stains from a Porcelain Tile?
Porcelain tile is non-porous and hence does not absorb moisture. As it does not absorb any moisture into its pores, there is no mold breeding at the root level. But staining and mold breeding occurs at a superficial level on top of the surface. If you ignore any spills or stains on your porcelain tile, soon they will take the form of yellow stains, making your tile surface dull and lustreless.
To remove these stains from porcelain tile also, you can rely on Imperia Deep Clean. Although deep-rooted cleaning is not necessary on porcelain tile surface, you do need a robust cleaner with an alkaline base that promises to be tough on stains and gentle on the tile. There are many low-quality products available on the market that are acidic in nature. Using these would result in etching on the surface. Imperia Deep Clean does not cause etching on the surface. It removes all the tough stains from porcelain tile, rendering a thoroughly clean and fresh-looking surface.
While using Imperia Deep Clean on porcelain tile, you also need to focus on cleaning the grout. Grout is a porous mix of sand and cement that has the tendency to absorb water and cause stains and mold. You can clean the grout properly with Imperia Deep Clean, as it enters the pores and knocks of all the hidden germs, bacteria and stains at the root level. You can use pFOkUS’ grout brush for scrubbing the grout lines with Imperia Deep Clean.
After thoroughly cleaning your porcelain tile, you can prevent further staining by first sealing the grout and then sealing the tile. Once the tile and grout have been sealed, you can maintain porcelain tile regularly by using Imperia Maintenance or Valore Maintenance Cleaners from pFOkUS.
