Southern Maine Tile & Grout Cleaning Instructions

Cleaning Solution- Dilute ½ cup Windex with a gallon of water

For your floor:

  1. Always vacuum or sweep your floor to remove all dirt and particles
  2. Apply the cleaning solution with a mop. DO NOT use large amounts of the cleaning solution. Use as little as possible to get the job done. Let the solution sit on the floor for 3 or 4 minutes to loosen any dirt or oils.
  3. Remove excess solution. Use a clean, dry terry cloth towel and wipe the cleaner from the floor. You can use a towel over a swiffer style mop to get the same results. Change the towel often.
  4. Finally, wipe out all of the grout lines with a terry cloth towel. Again, you can use a swiffer style mop, but make sure you remove all the solution from the grout lines.


FOR STUBBORN AREAS, SPRAY OR WIPE ON A STRONGER WINDEX SOLUTION AND LET IT STAND FOR 5 MINUTES. WIPE OFF WITH A CLEAN DAMP CLOTH OR AGITATE SLIGHTLY WITH A VERY SOFT TOOTHBRUSH.

For your shower:
  1. Use the same cleaning solution or another mild cleaner.
  2. Spray or wipe the area with the solution to loosen up dirt and soap scum.
  3. We recommend using a Mr. Clean magic eraser to clean the tile.
  4. Use a terry cloth towel to wipe out the grout lines. For stubborn areas use a very soft toothbrush to agitate.


TO HELP KEEP YOUR SHOWER CLEAN, ALWAYS TRY TO WIPE IT DOWN OR USE A WINDOW SQUEEGEE AFTER YOU FINISH USING THE SHOWER. KEEPING IT CLEAN AND DRY WILL HELP YOU ADD YEARS TO YOUR INVESTMENT.
