How to Steam Clean Ceramic Tile: Using a steam cleaner to clean ceramic tile on the floor and the walls can remove that sticky residue often left behind when using traditional floor cleaners. The high_pressure steam both cleans and disinfects the ceramic tile surfaces without the use of harsh chemicals that can sometimes damage ceramic tile or grout. Using a steam cleaner protects your skin from those same harsh chemicals. Steam cleaners can heat the water up to 220_degrees Fahrenheit to blast dirt out of small cracks and crevices that a regular mop would leave behind.
STEP 7: Cleaning and sealing __ Make sure you sponge off the residue on the surface of the tiles before it has the chance to dry. This step will require several passes over a period of an hour or more. It's a critical stage when you're working with tiles that have a porous or variegated surface. Dried grout can prove almost impossible to remove from indentations.
