How to Protect Ceramic Tile From Hard Water Stains: Lime, calcium and other mineral in water cause hard water stains on ceramic tile. The minerals are left behind after the water dries and result in streaks or spots. These spots can appear light at first but they eventually become more pronounced as the mineral layer builds up. Once dry, the stains become hard and won't easily wipe from the ceramic tiles. Preventing the stains saves you the effort of a deep cleaning later and keeps the ceramic looking shiny and clean.
Pump the handle or squeezed the trigger on your steam cleaner to release the steam through the microfiber cloth. Move your steam cleaner's head back and forth over your ceramic tile the same way you would when mopping your floor with water. Unplug your steam cleaner from the wall outlet to change the microfiber cloth or to change an attachment to clean ceramic tile on the wall. Plug the steam cleaner back into the wall outlet to heat the water.
