If my kitchen floor wasn't such a pain to clean I would do it more often.  I have a steam mop that I absolutely love.  I have marble floors in my kitchen...not the kind of marble that you would typically see on a floor.  It is the frickin stuff that is in window sils.  It was NEVER sealed and it is raised a good 1/4 inch from the grout.  It is a bitch to clean and I hate doing it.  This is on my front porch, in my entry way, the hallway between 2 bedrooms and in my kitchen.  HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE flooring.

It must be frustrating to have to deal with this type of floor. A similar situation when we rented taught me that I never wanted tile floors or countertops. Too hard to clean.

Mine got designs on the tiles too. Steam mops doesn't help much. I have a steam mop. The only way all those dirt was gone is bleach like green works & a scrub with a handle and also I attached 2 scotch brite to my rectangular mop.


Quoting Bmat:

Good point.  I go over mine on my hands and knees about once a week. But there are indentations- it is supposed to resemble tile I guess, that I'm not getting to. I am thinking a scrub brush may be what I need, although those steam mops might work.

I actually clean the Kitchen floor on my Hands and Knees. I always hated how Mops would push everything into corners.

Oh I see. Thank you for the suggestion. I may have to try this. Scrubbing at the designs on hands and knees isn't doing it.
