Mop and bucket in an empty tiled room


Tile floors are a low-maintenance flooring option, but every now and then, they need some extra attention. If that time has come, it's time to break out the mop and tile cleaner for a 10-minute refresh. Your floors will be good as new in no time!


1Gather your tools and materials

Below you'll find all the tools and materials you'll need to complete this project.

2Remove any surface dirt and dust

Sweep the floor tiles, making sure there's no residual dust and dirt sitting on the surface. 

3Add tile cleaner

Add the tile cleaner to your bucket with the water as per the instructions. Apply and then leave to sit for 1–2 minutes.


Mop with clean water to rinse thoroughly. Allow to dry naturally or use a cloth to wipe your tiles dry to prevent streaks. 

5Scrub stubborn areas

For stubborn grime, apply again, leave for 3–5 minutes. If required, scrub at the grout using a tile-suitable scourer, then rinse thoroughly again with a mop.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
