Cleaning Shoe Marks from Ceramic Tile Floors

Written by 

16 1113tm vector2 3507There are a lot of ways out there to triumph over those resistant shoe marks in tiled floors. Most of these floors are treated with finishes and lacquer such as polyurethane, which helps in protecting them and creates a shiny gleam. Abrasives and cleaners can dull these protective coatings, so make sure if you are cleaning show marks that you use the gentlest methods available that will remove the marks. If you own a ceramic tile floor, the following step by step guide will help you get rid of shoe marks that may mar your floor without destroying its elegance:  

STEP 1

Rub the shoe mark with a dry piece of cloth or a paper towel. Rub the cloth over the mark in back and forth motion. Run a clear pencil eraser gently over the shoe marks and then wipe off the residue with a damp cloth.

STEP 2

For stubborn shoe marks, you may need a different approach. Make a cleaning paste by adding just enough water to powdered baking soda to make a paste-like substance. Apply some of this paste to the marks on the floor. Soak a cloth in this solution and use it to rub off the scuff marks. You should be able to remove all these unsightly marks by using this method. 

STEP 3

You can also dip a soft, clean brush into the paste. Rub the wet brush over the shoe mark. Wipe the paste off the tile using a cloth or paper towel dipped into pure warm water. 

STEP 4

Dry your tile using a cloth. Ensure that there is no water or any cleaner left on your tile because it can make the floor very slippery. Also, water compromises the longevity of tiled floors.

During the scrubbing process, make sure to use gentle and even pressure so that you don’t scour the floor. Also, before shoe marks become a great problem to your flooring, consider covering high traffic areas with rugs.
