Tile in St. Charles, IL
St. Charles is a city of over 33,000 people located roughly forty miles west of Chicago. Downtown St. Charles' Lincoln Park serves as the central location for two annual citywide events: the Pride of the Fox RiverFest in June, and the Scarecrow Festival in October. St. Charles is also home to the Fox Valley Concert Band. Universal Carpet has installed many different types of flooring materials in homes and commercial settings in this area, and this includes tile flooring. Tile has rapidly become a popular flooring option because it's easy to install, and it's extremely affordable. Frequently, this is the material commercial property managers who need to add new flooring in apartments, hotels, condos, or town homes choose.
Cleaning is a breeze
Vacuuming over the floor or using a broom to remove built-up dirt and debris is recommended. Don't use a really wet mop because sopping water all over the floor could damage the sub-floor down below, and it could also get stuck between the tile and the sub-floor, causing your floor to feel "squishy" in certain spots. You should avoid using abrasive commercial chemicals and cleaners and instead simply use a mix of baking soda and water. This can also be used to remove stubborn stains. Lemon juice can also be used to clean the surface of the floor and remove any film that may have built-up from using very soapy cleaners in the past.
