It would be nice if we knew what specific type of tiles we're talking about.

BTW, this site does not charge if you make the question a little longer. Please reply with details.

Sorry about that. The kitchen is sealed ceramic tile and then in the entryway and bathrooms are not sealed. Please let me know if you need more info I am not good with this stuff as you can see.

I still don't know what you've got there. What is sealed ceramic tile? Do you mean ceramic tile that you have applied a sealer on the grout? Do you mean glazed? Do you have any specific info on the tiles?

How long ago was this installed? Any idea which method of installation and specific type grout? What problems are you having? What color is the grout?

Are the tiles hard to clean too? What are you using to clean and how often? How many people, pets, paved streets, sidewalks, attached garage? Where is the house located?

Jaz has a point. Need more details to give you the best advice... You can research online for the different types of tiles. Or you can post pictures here.

I use a "Eureka Enviro Steamer" to clean my ceramic tiles. It cleans it really well. I don't use chemicals.

Dirt adheres easily to the surface of ceramic tile, especially styles with textured surfaces. Regular sweeping loosens and removes most dirt. A vacuum cleaner can also be used to sweep, but make sure you use one without a beater bar to avoid dulling and scratching the tiles. Vacuum cleaner attachments are great to suck up dirt along edges or in between tiles.
