How to Clean and Maintain Jura Marble like a Pro

Jura Marble is a limestone quarried in the Bavarian national park, Altmuehltal in Germany. The stone is quarried in 25 layers providing a wide variety of colours and textures. Jura marble is technically a limestone and not marble, although it looks similar to marble surfaces. 

Because Jura marble is very a sensitive tile, using the wrong cleaning chemicals may make the surface dull, look scratched all over, and possibly fade in colour. In extreme cases, using the wrong cleaning products may corrode the tile. As a general rule, acidic based cleaning agents are a no-no for Jura Marble.

vinyl-3

How to Clean Aged Vinyl Floor like a Pro

We were pleasantly surprised to received an email completed with pictures from a satisfied customer, Mr Tan Tai Seng. We thought it is so good, that we want to share with our readers, so we contact him and get his permission to share his story on our blog. The email was reproduced below, and only simple typesetting was done. 

======================================================================

 Email received on 22 Oct 2014 

 We’ve been in our home for close to 11 years. We bought the house new, from HDB, and didn’t have the budget for expensive flooring in the kitchen, like wood or marble tiles. So the best we could do was to get vinyl. I really liked the checkerboard floor design in the beginning, especially the black and white pattern that reminds me of my favourite game of chess. My wife and I met in a chess competition in Singapore, but I digress.

However, I was sad to note that over the years it got harder and harder to keep it clean. Yes, I do the vacuuming, mopping, cooking and washing dishes at home, while my wife does the laundry and ironing of clothes. We agreed to share the housework equally. I was saddened to note that the dirt was really ground into the vinyl tiles, and no matter how hard I scrubbed, there is a layer of stubborn grease and dirt that stick to the top of the vinyl, and won’t go away. I have to say, I vacuumed and mopped the floor every week, but this does not help.  

I thought I need to re-tile the floors. The quote for re-tiling was a staggering $11,000. Also, my family and I needs a place to stay while the renovation was in progress. 

Cleaning Secret:  

So I explained my problem to my colleagues at work, and ask if anyone of them could rent us a room for two weeks while our home was undergoing refitting. One of my colleagues told me about something that she used on her vinyl floors and she swore how effective it was. She even offered to buy one bottle for me to try. With nothing to lose, I tried it out on the tile above and was surprised at how easily it removed the grease and dirt!

Want to know what it is? Here’s the secret! It’s PVC Floor Cleaner!! You know, what is the irony? The joke is that the cleaner cover has the same checkerbox design on it as my home! 

How we clean our floor 

How astonishing is that?!! Anyway, back to the floor – all we did was to

1. Add the about 200ml of the PVC Floor Cleaner onto a pail of water.

2. Then we wipe up the floor using the solution and let the situation sit for a while.

3.  Then finish with scrubbing brush and remove dissolved dirt.

4. Wash off with clean water.

To our astonishment and delight, the piled-on dirt come out quickly and effectively!

The Result? 

Veni, Vidi, Vici! It’s like a brand new floor again! We actually did this a few months ago and it still looks great. Therefore, you wouldn’t have to do this every time you mop, only every now and again if you see a build-up of dirt.

Words can’t describe how happy I am with my floor now! I thought I need to replace the floor and find somewhere to stay temporary while the renovators are replacing the tiles, but now I need not pay for these expenses. Yay! 

Thank you for this superior product. 

Sincerely,

Tan Tai Seng

How to Clean Grout (the area between tiles) like a Pro

Grout is the mortar that is used to fix tiles to walls, floors, and even worktops. Grout are usually white in colour. In HDB homes, it grout is present as the space between tiles.

Even if you’re diligent about cleaning the wall or floor tiles, you’ll undoubtedly find residual dirt clings to the grout in between. 

If left uncleaned for a long period of time, you might even see unhealthy black mould growing on grout. Why? Because grout is a porous material and tiles are commonly found in rooms that are moist – namely kitchens and bathrooms. These are exactly the conditions that fungus, or mould, love.

 To clean grout between the walls, we recommend the use of Grout Cleaner. Grout Cleaner is specially formulated to remove grease, dirt, cleaning residues and stubborn deposits from the space between tiles.
