No matter what type of flooring you have in your home, or most likely multiple types, you want to make sure that you are using eco-friendly cleaners made from all-natural ingredients that are designed for each specific flooring type.
Follow some of these spring cleaning tips that will help you get your home into dazzling form:
For soft carpet, the beginning of spring would probably be a great time to shampoo your carpets after the snowy winter months. The combined slush of dirt, mud, melted snow and salt can easily be tracked inside and become trapped in your carpet’s fibers. After that, you can take a moment to possibly re-arrange your furniture layout so that the carpet can age more evenly. And remember, regular vacuuming with the proper vacuum model is your carpet’s best love and care it can receive!
Hardwood floors look absolutely pristine in the spring and maintenance takes only a few key steps. Sweeping and vacuuming is the first easy step, removing all dirt and dust on the surface. If any food or winter debris is stuck to your hardwood, gently use an old credit card or similar plastic card to lightly scrape up the dried gunk. For that extra shimmer, avoid mopping with water and simply use a cleaner made specifically for hardwood floors. Make sure you also use a soft sponge or cloth.
We love tile floors since they are classically stylish, incredibly durable and a breeze to maintain. Sweep or vacuum any loose dirt, dust and winter debris. Generally speaking, you only need warm water to clean tile floors. Avoid using a sponge mop to reduce pushing any dirt or grime into the grout and use a tile-safe cleaner to spot clean any areas when finished.
Your low-maintenance laminate floors simply require a quick vacuum using the wand attachment. Use a dust mop or damp cloth for general cleaning. Any traces of winter salt on the floor? Just use a damp cloth to wipe the stain off. Same goes for your attractive vinyl flooring: mop the area and use a vinyl-specific cleaner to remove any spots of build-up.
