How to Maintain Your Flooring

Many people don't think about how to maintain their flooring until they start noticing that it looks dirty or dingy. It's important to keep your floors looking in the best condition possible; otherwise, you may quickly notice an increase in expenses for carpet cleaning and hardwood refinishing. If you want to avoid costly repairs or replacements, read on for some tips on how to maintain your flooring!

 

Vacuum the flooring regularly to remove dirt and debris.

Vacuuming your floors can  help to remove dirt and debris, which can dull the appearance of your flooring. You should vacuum at least once a week or when there is visible buildup on the surface of your floors.

Mop hardwood floors regularly to prevent damage

Hardwood floors are beautiful; however, they can be easily damaged by water spills and other liquids. You should clean up spills as soon as they happen and mop hardwood floors at least once a week to avoid damage from water buildup or other liquids that may be spilled onto your flooring.

Use rugs to prevent dirt and debris accumulation on carpeted flooring.

Carpeted flooring is softer than hardwood, tile, or other flooring types. However, it can still accumulate dirt and debris over time which will make your floors look dirty even if they are clean. You should use rugs in high traffic areas to prevent the accumulation of dirt on carpeted surfaces; this will keep them looking cleaner longer!

Use a damp mop with mild soap if necessary

If you do not notice any visible dirt or debris on your floors, but they are dull and gray-looking, then it may be time to use a damp mop with mild soap. Use the same type of cleaner that you would use for mopping hardwood floors; just make sure that there is no harsh chemical residue left behind after rinsing.

Dry your flooring thoroughly after mopping 

If you use a damp mop, make sure to dry your floors thoroughly after mopping; otherwise, they will accumulate water spots and could become damaged.

Maintain the carpet color by using a good quality carpet cleaner .

If your carpeting is looking a little dull or dingy, consider using a good quality carpet cleaner to maintain the color. Look for cleaners that are free of harsh chemicals and be sure to test it on an inconspicuous corner before applying it over large areas so you can ensure that the product will not damage your flooring.

Don't let spills and stains dry

Another way to avoid costly repairs or replacements is to make sure that spills are cleaned up immediately. If you have kids, pets, or party guests who enjoy eating in the living room while watching TV, then it's likely that at least once a week there will be something spilled on your floors.

Apply protectant periodically to keep it looking shiny and new!

You should apply a protectant to your flooring every few months or so; this will ensure that it continues looking shiny and new.

Never use abrasive cleaners

Never use abrasive cleaners or steel wool to clean your floors. These types of products will leave scratches and other marks behind, which can be difficult to repair – if they are even repairable at all! You should always consult an expert before using these products so you don't damage the finish of your beautiful new floor.
