Ceiling tiles can be very beautiful when they are installed for the first time. But after a year or so, what was once attractive to look at can turn into a grimy nightmare.
There are different types of ceiling tiles, and each of them requires unique cleaning and stain removal methods.
Colored or Sealed White / Nonporous Ceiling Tiles
This type of ceiling tile is really beautiful and sealed, often featuring intricate designs.
Light dusting once monthly or every other month is the only kind of regular cleaning task that these tiles need.
Porous Ceiling Tiles
These are a type of non-sealed sound-absorbing or acoustic tiles used in many commercial buildings today. Sadly, these ceiling tiles are tricky to clean since they are made of fibrous material that has holes in them.
A routine vacuuming or dusting using a soft brush attachment can prevent stains, dirt, and cobwebs from damaging your ceiling. Once stains formed, these tiles often need replacement.
Wood Finished, Copper, Silver, or Tin Ceiling Tiles
These types of ceiling tiles often have facings made of materials such as PVC or vinyl. They feature beautiful finishes that resemble plaster, metal or decorative wood surfaces with intricate raised designs. These tiles are often easy to clean and waterproof.
