3 Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Flooring, Barnesville, Ohio

No matter what type of flooring you have, it must be cleaned regularly to maintain its condition. If your floors need a deep cleaning for spring to get rid of winter scuffing, stains, or pet odors, now is the perfect time to tackle it. Here is a helpful list of spring cleaning solutions to get you started.

3 Flooring Tips for Spring Cleaning

1. Vinyl & Tile

Tile and vinyl flooring are commonly found in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and other high-traffic areas in the home. Cleaning tile or vinyl floors is a fairly simple process, even when they are dirtier than usual. Both surfaces are durable and nonporous, which means warm water and liquid cleansers can be safely applied to clean and disinfect the floors with ease. Start by sweeping or vacuuming the floors, and then mop with the appropriate cleaning agents to produce a spotless shine.

2. Carpeting

FlooringCarpet can house allergens—such as dust, mildew, and pet dander—along with unpleasant odors. Vacuuming frequently will help remove these contaminants. However, if your carpet smells bad, sprinkle baking soda over the area and let it sit for an hour before vacuuming away. Steam cleaning the carpet will eliminate smells and many stains, as well as provide a thorough cleaning.

3. Hardwood

Cleaning hardwood floors can be a little tricky because too much water can damage the finish and condition of the wood. Dirt and debris are easily removed with a dry microfiber mop. Using a broom can scratch the hardwood, so it should be avoided whenever possible. If you want to deep clean your wood flooring, consider sanding to remove scratches or gouging. A high polish will also revive worn floors and even out scratches, while providing a protective sealant to keep moisture out.
