How Do You Clean Unglazed Quarry Tile Floors?

To clean an unglazed quarry tile floor, pick up large debris, sweep the floor, mop the floor with diluted cleansing solution, and target tough stains with a scrub brush. The supplies you need for this 30-minute procedure are a broom, a dustpan, a trash can, a large bucket, a mop, hot water, tile cleansing solution and a scrub brush.

  1. Pick up large debris

    Pick up and discard large debris such as paper scraps and culinary waste.

  2. Sweep the floor

    Sweep the floor with a broom. Gather the waste into a dustpan, and discard it.

  3. Mix the cleaning solution

    In a large bucket, mix equal parts hot water and unglazed tile cleaning solution.

  4. Mop the floor

    Dip a mop into the cleaning solution, wring it out, and draw it across the floor in a figure-eight motion. Flip the mop over, and repeat the motion. Dunk the mop into the bucket, wring it out, and move on to the next patch of floor. Mop the entire floor in this manner. If the water in the bucket becomes very dirty, pour it out, and make a fresh batch of cleaning solution.

  5. Rinse the floor

    Pour out the cleaning solution, and fill the bucket with warm water. Swab the floor with water, and then empty the bucket. Do not walk on the floor until it is completely dry.
