Sealed Victorian geometric mosaic floor tile is very resistant to staining, if it becomes discolored, then the sealer has failed. Unsealed tiles, however, can become badly stained. Prevention is the best remedy. Follow the cleaning tips (Cleaning Victorian tile floor) on this page.

Often the best way to clean the stains on tile is to make a paste, for example, of scouring powder and water. A thick paste will scour better than regular cleaner, and if you let it sit on the stain for several hours, it will continue to soak up unwanted color. On greasy stains, a paste made of cat-box litter and water can also work.

Though tile is strong and hard, take care not to scratch its surface. Use nylon scrubbers rather than steel wool, and take care when scraping with metal tool.

Coffee, tea, blood, mustard, wine, fruit juice, rust, lipstick. Mix baking soda with a little water to create a thick paste. Rub the paste on the stain, and leave it until dry. Rinse and wipe dry.

Cooking fats and grease. Clean with all purpose household cleaner.

Cleaning Victorian tile floor
 

Aside from its beauty and durability, one of the big advantages of Victorian mosaic floor tile is that it is so easy to clean. If you attend to routine cleaning - immediately wiping up spills that could stain, cleaning and sealing grout - you may never have to use any but the most common household products to keep your tile looking as good as new for years. Sweep or vacuum Victorian tile floors regularly. Use rugs or floor mats at entryways and other heavily traveled areas. If you must scrub a surface, avoid using metal scouring pads - woven-plastic scrubbers are much safer. And never mix different types of cleaning solutions (for example chlorine bleach and ammonia)

Wipe mosaic tiled floors with a damp mop, warm water, and little detergent. Rinse thoroughly with clean water. For stubborn dirt, use an all-purpose household cleaner or commercial tile cleaner. Rinse with clean water. Do not use abrasive, scented, or solvent-based cleaners.
