Finding the best machine to clean tile floors and grout can be a frustrating experience or one in which you luck out the first time. Floors are one of those things you simply cannot ignore in your home. Slack off on properly cleaning them, and it’ll make a perfectly nice room look filthy in minutes.
However, as with all floors, there are specific ways to clean them. For the same reasons you shouldn’t use steam cleaners on laminate floors, you don’t want to use lemon, vinegar or other acidic substances on your granite or marble tile floors.
But that same steam cleaner and/or white vinegar on a ceramic tile floor could result in remarkable floors. These 12 tile floor cleaners and grout cleaners are intended to get you started on your way to having floors that look as new as the day they were purchased.
While perusing them, make sure you check on too-often ignored features like machine width spacing (to avoid banging it in hallways and doorways), cord length (to be able to get from one end of the room to another) and weight (so it is not uncomfortable to move around).
If you can narrow down these three features, along with a properly cleaning machine, you should have a remarkable floor cleaning on a consistent basis.

While there are various ways to clean your floor, any of these 12 should be able to do the trick. Before purchasing a floor cleaner, decide how to get the best bang for your buck. For example, if there is a cleaner with mop attachments or one that can clean carpet, and you have both in your home, it might make more sense to invest in a duo cleaner. But you may not want to pay more for this option if you know you have no desire to have certain kinds of floors, and the attachments will be ignored.
Find a cleaner that works best for your current needs. With each cleaner option above, make sure to follow the manufacturer’s specifications for additional cleaners. Stay away from toxic chemicals in steam cleaners or do-it-yourself cleaners (i.e. vinegar, etc.) if the manufacturer doesn’t OK it ahead of time.
If you opt for your own cleaning ideas, you may put your manufacturer agreement at risk. If you’re using compatible cleaners, and maintaining them as directed, these machines should be able to work for the long run.
