Go Green, Save Your Tiles!

 In Blog

Every year hundreds of thousands of pounds of renovation waste moves from American homes and businesses to landfills. While much of this waste can be deemed necessary, there are opportunities for waste diversion.  As an environmentally-conscious home or business owner, there are many things you can do to reduce the movement of home and building material to waste facilities: repairing existing fixtures and appliances, incorporating vintage elements into your decorating, and refinishing old surfaces in your home. One such surface is tile floors.

Clean and Green

Tiles naturally accumulate dirt over time. This build-up can cause graying, staining, and discoloration. And stained, gray tiles are not something topping most people’s dream-home checklist. So what are your options? Well, your first inclination may be to rip them up, throw them out, and start new. Apart from being potentially wasteful, however, this option is expensive. Much more cost-effective and green is the elbow-grease method. That’s right, it’s time to give those tiles a scrub. Depending on the type of tile you have, you can try a variety of tile- safe cleaners, or even make your own with natural ingredients. Using a cleaner approved for your type of tile, on a regular basis can prolong the life and appearance of your floor. There are cases, however, when even the best of intentions and the greatest of scrubbings won’t bring the shine back to your floors. If this is the case, it’s time to call in help.
