How to Choose the Best Floor Cleaning Solutions

Published by Armstone, 19 February, 2021

Clean floors have a way of transforming a space, so much so that everything in a room can look brand new.

In order to keep floors looking their best, it’s recommended to invest in the best quality floor cleaning solutions that are available on the market. But with so much choice, how do you  choose a floor cleaning product that really works? 

In this article, we’ve put together a guide that will help you choose the best cleaning solutions to keep your floors looking, and feeling, spotless.

1. Choose a reputable cleaning brand

While some products have homebrand counterparts that are very similar to the branded item, at Armstone, we recommend using floor cleaning products from the Aqua Mix tile and stone care range. Aqua Mix is a market leader and they have a selection of excellent floor cleaning solutions for every messy situation.

2. The best everyday cleaner

For everyday purposes, the most effective general cleaner is Aqua Mix Concentrated Stone and Tile Cleaner. This hardworking, fresh-smelling formula can be used as part of your  regular cleaning routine. It removes even the most stubborn dirt, grime and stains and helps prevent an unsightly build-up of soap scum or deposits from hard water.

The Aqua Mix Concentrated Stone and Tile Cleaner can be used on the following surfaces:

  • Natural stone (polished and unpolished), such as slate, limestone, granite and travertine
  • Porcelain
  • Ceramic
  • Grout
  • Terra-cotta
  • Saltillo
  • Quarry
  • Masonry surfaces such as plaster
  • Cement pavers
  • Most water-safe surfaces

3. A floor cleaner that “tops up” your floors

Another product well worth using in your regular cleaning routine is the Aquashield Cleaner and Resealer. It’s essentially a two-in-one solution that cleans the floors while simultaneously “topping up” the tile or stone surfaces by adding sealer along the way. It’s both non-acidic and non-abrasive and can be safely used on tiles, stones, grout, chrome, laminates and glass.

This is a formula that quickly gets rid of dirt, grease, soap scum and other household and garden stains.
