Care Tips for All Types of Flooring
No matter what kind of flooring you have installed in your home, proper maintenance can help extend the life of your floor and keep it looking great. Here we have listed the floor caring tips for all types of flooring in your home from a flooring service expert.
Less Product, More Frequency
It is a common misbelief that more products will lead to better results. For the best results, use less cleaning product, but clean more often. Sweep laminate, wood, luxury vinyl, and sheet vinyl regularly. Then, mop with a clean damp mop. Do not overwet your floor or use harsh chemicals, which can damage the floor’s finish.
Blot stains with a damp, white terry cloth towel. Do not saturate the stain with water. Continue to blot with fresh clean towels until the stain is out. Cover the damp spot with a fresh dry white terry cloth towel until the carpet is dry. A wet carpet that is uncovered will attract dust from the air and lead to a new stain.
Have the Basics
Purchase a basic floor care kit in order to ensure you have the necessary tools to keep your floors clean. These essential items are the best way to maintain your floors without harsh chemicals. A basic floor care kit includes a mop or handle with cleaning pads, terry cloth towels, a cleaning formula designed for your specific type of flooring, a broom, a dustpan, and a good-quality vacuum.
Vacuum carpet at least once per week, and attend to high-traffic areas twice per week. For the best clean, adjust the beater bar on your vacuum so that it is just brushing the surface of the carpet. If the beater bar on your vacuum is not adjustable, remove it. Always properly maintain your vacuum.
