Ceramic Tile Floors??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My entire downstairs minus the master bedroom is all ceramic tile. It adds up about 1100 square feet. I was wondering what kind of mop you guy would recommend for ceramic tile. I have one that I use but I am not sure if it is the best kind to use. I don't like the rag moms as I suck at using them. Does anyone use a scoomba on ceramic tile. I hate to purchase one and it not work on the floor.

I ude a steam mop - the shark. It's really great at deep cleaning, but you need to do a good job sweeping up first.

I also use a steam mop. We have about the same amount of ceramic tiled flooring as you, Warpedmom. It gets the job done...though it doesn't clean the grout very well.

subbing so maybe if someone throws out a great option I will actually start mopping the tile floor which now, to my shame if I had any, only gets spot wiped between very infrequent professional cleanings.

re scoomba - a roomba that mops? We have a roomba, and I do love it, but it only postpones a real vacuuming, doesn't replace it. I wonder if the mopping version is so much better and would actually replace mopping any other way...

Do they still make the 'hoover floormate'. When I was a homeowner and had tons of ceramic tile I loved my Floormate. If I was married, I probably would've been guilty of an affair with the darn thing LOL.

If it's sealed tile with no nooks and crannies, the swiffer mopper works great! You can also refill them with your own favorite floor cleaner. I posted the link last week, I think. We had the shark, but it wasn't one of those "grab and go" type mops. I liked it. I liked the idea of cleaning with steam. But with such a large area to mop, the cord drove me crazy! Plus, I found the water chamber to run out too quickly so I'd have to stop and refill. When I'm on a mission, I just want to get it done. So, we got the swiffer and I like it much better.

I found the swiffer to be junk, especially cleaning the grout. I have resorted to cleaning mine by hand every once in awhile to get the grout. It sucks, but I have yet to find something affordable and decent.
