Slippery tile is a safety hazard. Mats can be helpful, but they only provide protection over a limited area. To make your tile safer to tread, you must make the entire surface non-slip. There are several products available on the market that will cover your tile floor with a non-slip coating. These coatings can be found online or at many home and garden centres. They go on easily with a mop or spray bottle then bind with the surface of the floor, increasing traction.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Mix a solution of trisodiumphosphate (TSP) powder and water according to the manufacturer's instructions. Then use the solution and a scrub brush to scrub the floor clean of oil and dirt that could prevent the non-slip product from adhering to the tile floor. Follow with a plain water mop. Finally, towel or air dry.

  2. 2

    Spray or mop on the non-slip product according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  3. 3

    Leave the product in place for the manufacturer-recommended amount of time, usually five to 10 minutes.

  4. 4

    Mop the product up with plain water or the neutralising solution recommended by the manufacturer.

  5. 5

    Empty the mop bucket, then mop a second time with plain water.
