Granite kitchen floor cleaning


Over the years I have found some products to work well while others do not. Our kitchen floor has 12x12 granite tiles. Can anyone recommend a good cleaning regime for the ultimate shine and no streaks? Lately I have been using a microfiber pad attached to a broom stick that I bought at Costco. It has a small tank for water mixed with any other solution. Other than streaks it works ok along with some elbow grease.

Thx

I never clean tile because I install too much of it... My wife uses a Swiffer a lot. I don't get into recomending cleaners unless I know what the grout is, for instance, you should not use Citrus based cleaners with an epoxy grout because over time it will soften the chemical bond...

Not even vinegar and water or a floor steam cleaner?

My father-in-law installed it over five years ago. To be honest I don't know I would think it's just the basic type of grout.

I would think a steam cleaner works great! Also, consider a good scrub down and seal your granite and grout with a Miracle or AquaMix product
