3 Flooring Materials & How to Properly Clean Them, Kerrville, Texas

Cleaning a floor is as easy as sweeping with a broom or vacuuming every couple of days, right? Well, not exactly. If you’re looking for a longer-lasting clean, there are several different methods that should be implemented on a regular basis. Just ask the professionals at CD Flooring. After many years of supplying top-notch flooring installation services to clients throughout Kerrville, TX, these experts know the cleaning techniques that are required for various materials and will be happy to provide the insight you need for proper floor care.

While it’s not a bad idea to start by sweeping along the edges of the room and vacuuming the main areas, there are several steps you can take to ensure a more thorough clean. Here are the top methods CD Flooring recommends for the following three materials.

How to Clean 3 Flooring Materials

1. Ceramic Tile

flooringThere’s no need to use harsh chemicals or cleaning products on this type of flooring. All that’s needed is a bucket of warm water and a micro-fiber mop. Don’t use a sponge mop, as it doesn’t collect all the dirt and tends to sweep it right into the grout. Make sure you go over the floor with a broom to remove any loose debris, and squeeze out any excess water before mopping. Change the water as needed, and let the floor air dry.

2. Hardwood Flooring

An oil-based liquid cleaner is suggested for hardwood flooring. While it doesn’t have to be applied on a weekly basis, this periodic treatment will help this material to retain its natural shine and durability. After sweeping up the loose dirt, verify your mop isn’t oversaturated, run it over the floorboards, and clean up any excess water with a dry towel.

3. Vinyl Flooring

The best way to keep vinyl flooring nice and clean is with a combination of apple cider vinegar and water. This simple solution works to cut through layers of dirt and won’t leave a residue when you’re finished. Blend the ingredients in a bucket, squeeze out the mop, and wipe the floor down thoroughly.
