There are good reasons why tiles are made from easy to clean materials - they get used frequently throughout the day and get dirty very quickly. From food splattering on the kitchen backsplash to muddy shoes treading on the floor, our tiles are tackled everyday. Luckily, Zoflora is on hand to give them the attention they deserve. 

Zoflora’s powerful 3-in-1 action formula works fast to effectively kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, including the COVID-19 Virus, when diluted at 1 in 40 with water. Zoflora Concentrated Multipurpose Disinfectant is the perfect tile cleanser with its powerful germ-killing properties, as well as eliminating odours and filling spaces with beautiful fragrance for up to 24 hours. 

We put our floors through a lot. These high traffic areas can start to look dirty and gather viruses and bacteria very quickly, especially as we bring in dirt from outside into our homes. But don't worry, because it’s easier than ever to clean a tiled floor.

Just grab your handy bottle of Zoflora disinfectant and dilute it at a ratio of 1:40 with water. Then using the ‘mop it’ method, you can effectively clean hard surfaces in one fell swoop, whilst filling your room with your favourite fragrance all day long. 

Even if you wipe bathroom tiles every week, failing to use a powerful anti-bacterial and and anti-viral cleanser like Zoflora means they could still be covered in hundreds and thousands of germs, even though it looks clean to the naked eye.

Particularly around germ hotspot areas like the toilet, it is super important to also thoroughly wipe over with diluted Zoflora to ensure your home is hygienically clean and fragrantly fresh.

The kitchen is where we prepare all of our food, so it’s no surprise that kitchen tiles can soon become covered in germs. Therefore, you need to ensure these areas are disinfected properly in order to be hygienically clean for you and your family.

Using the ‘spray it’ method, dilute a capful of Zoflora into 400ml water inside one of our amazing Zoflora spray bottles, then simply spray the kitchen tiles, and use our ‘wipe it’ method, to give it a thorough scrub with a cloth. Allow a contact time of at least 5 minutes to allow effective disinfection. 

Now you know what areas need your attention, let’s learn how to clean tiles with Zoflora. Whether porcelain tiles or ceramic, you can effectively disinfect these surfaces using one of over 25 different fragrances, leaving your home hygienically clean and fragrantly fresh in no time.

How to clean tiled floors with Zoflora

Step 1: Remove debris

Using a vacuum cleaner, give your floors an initial clean to prep for the mopping. This includes removing all the loose bits of debris and dirt gathering in the nooks and crannies of your tiles.

As a result, the mopping will be more effective and prevents any dirt that has built up being spread further around the floor. We recommend removing debris quite regularly to leave the home looking clean.

Step 2: Prepare the mop bucket

Add 1 capful of Zoflora neat for every 400ml of water present into your bucket. Due to its powerful germ-killing chemicals, neat Zoflora can cause skin irritation, so it’s best to always wear rubber gloves for this stage.

Step 3: Mop over the floor with diluted Zoflora

When using Zoflora as a tile floor cleaner, begin disinfecting the tiled floor by mopping with the diluted Zoflora. This will kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria (including flu and the COVID-19 virus) whilst filling the room with a beautiful fragrance for up to 24 hours. Remember to work from front to back, in either a vertical motion or a figure of 8.

This should be done using a rag or chamois mop, as a sponge mop can result in grime getting pushed even further into the grouting. When using Zoflora as a tiled floor cleaner, we recommend starting from the furthest point, at the back of the room, and mopping towards the door so that you don't step on your freshly cleaned floor.

Step 4: Let it dry

Give time for your wet floors to dry, and for Zoflora to work its germ-killing magic. Make sure all pets are well away from the floor before and a good period after it is cleaned. Once it’s completely dry it's suitable for your furry friends to enter again. But, make sure their paws aren’t muddy, as you’ll have to mop it all over again!

How to clean bathroom tiles and kitchen tiles with Zoflora

Step 1: Dilute Zoflora in a trigger spray bottle

First, dilute Zoflora in a trigger spray bottle with water at a ratio of 1:40. This creates a powerful disinfectant solution that can be used throughout the home. Diluted Zoflora maintains its germ-killing power for up to two weeks and fragrances are designed to last for 24 hours after cleaning, leaving your home smelling beautifully fragrant all day long. Remember, to never spray directly onto electrical items, so be sure to move that kettle, microwave or toothbrush charger out of the way when you're cleaning your tile

Step 2: Start with the grouting

When looking at how to clean bathroom tiles, the grouting should never be forgotten. A scrubbing brush works great for this but there are also special brushes you can buy to clean grout. With your rubber gloves on, spray the grouting with the diluted Zoflora and scrub away any dirt.

This removes small traces of mould whilst improving the overall appearance of the tiles. Wipe away any of the excess grime that has been forced free and then move onto the tiles themselves. For stubborn mould, we recommend a specialist product.

Step 3: Spray the tiles with the diluted Zoflora solution

Directly spray the kitchen or bathroom tiles with the diluted Zoflora solution. Next, wipe down with a microfiber cloth. This removes germs from the tiles, whilst leaving a shiny finish.

Remember to keep those rubber gloves on at all times, so that your hands are as safe and protected as your home.
