Properly caring for your floor

When it comes to maintaining the beauty and longevity of your flooring, proper care is essential. Whether you have hardwood, laminate, vinyl flooring or carpet, each type of flooring requires specific attention to keep it looking its best. Here are some expert tips to help you properly care for your floor.


Regular Cleaning

Regular cleaning is key to preserving the appearance of your floor. Sweep, vacuum, or mop your floors regularly to remove dirt, dust, and debris that can scratch or damage the surface. For hardwood floors, use a microfibre mop to avoid scratching the finish.

Use the Right Cleaning Products

Using the right cleaning products is crucial to prevent damage to your floor. Make sure to use cleaners that are specifically designed for your type of flooring. For example, hardwood floors should be cleaned with a pH-neutral cleaner, while tile floors may require a different type of cleaner.

Protect Your Floors

To prevent scratches and dents, place felt pads under furniture legs and use rugs or mats in high-traffic areas. Avoid wearing high heels or shoes with cleats on hardwood floors, as they can cause damage. Additionally, be cautious when moving heavy furniture to avoid dragging it across the floor.

Control Humidity Levels

Excess moisture can warp hardwood floors and cause mould or mildew to grow. Use a dehumidifier in humid climates to control moisture levels. In dry climates, use a humidifier to prevent hardwood floors from drying out and cracking.

Professional Maintenance

For deep cleaning and maintenance, consider hiring a professional floor cleaning service. Professionals have the expertise and equipment to properly clean and maintain your floors, extending their lifespan and keeping them looking like new.
