July 31, 2019

Flooring is an essential part of the house. Choosing the perfect flooring for your house takes a lot of time given the number of varieties available in the market. Most flooring is easy to maintain but you need to clean them to keep them looking new.

Different types of flooring need to be cleaned in different ways. Some floorings are easier to clean while others are not. In order to ensure your flooring makes your house look better, you need to maintain it from time to time.

Here are a few tips you can use to clean your flooring without much hassle:

How to Clean a Ceramic or Porcelain Tile Floor

Ceramic or porcelain tiles are the easiest to clean and maintain.

  • Spills and stains: If something has spilled on the floor or there is a stain, then all you need to do is wipe it using a wet mop. You can use a neutral floor cleaner once a while for cleaning the floor. All sorts of mops work great but the best mop is the good old string mop.
  • Grout lines: You need to ensure that the grout lines between the flooring are also cleaned properly and nothing is stuck between them to make your flooring look new.
  • No abrasive cleaners: Also, make sure not to use abrasive cleaner on the floor otherwise it will scratch the glaze.

How to Clean a Vinyl Floor

Vinyl flooring is available in a lot of varieties these days. The most popular amongst it is the vinyl planks and vinyl tiles. These flooring as very easy to maintain and clean and do not take much time.

  • Spills: If you have spilled something on the floor, then you can clean it using a wet mop just like for ceramic or porcelain flooring.
  • Neutral cleaner: Even while washing the floor, make sure that you use a neutral floor cleaner and not an abrasive one to ensure that the flooring does not get spoiled. If after moping you can see streaks on the floor, mop it again using a solution of white vinegar and water.
  • Don't pour water: Do not pour water directly over the floor or it will loosen the adhesive and increase the chances of floor damage.

How to Clean a Wooden Floor

Hardwood flooring is not as easy to maintain as other types of flooring options but if cleaned regularly, no damage will be done to the flooring and it can remain new for a really long time. If you want your floor to shine to give it a polished look for a long time, just vacuum your floor and then apply liquid floor cleaner over it using a dry wax applicator. This will keep your floor new as ever for a long time.

Make sure to clean you flooring properly to intact the beauty of your house.
