May 20th, 2016 · No Comments

Different floors have different floor cleaning needs. Today we wanted to share some tips on cleaning the different types of floors in your McKeesport, PA home.

Perhaps the best tip we can offer is to give us a call and let us handle the dirty work for you, but if you’re looking to get a start on your own, here are some strategies for cleaning and maintaining the different types of floors in your home.

Bamboo Floors

Bamboo floors can be especially difficult to maintain due to their thin fibers. For proper floor cleaning, sweep vigorously and often. For a deep floor cleaning solution, use a mixture PH-neutral soap and water. Apply a light amount of water to your broom, making it damp, and sweep your floors.

Ceramic Tile Floors

First, do an initial sweep of the floors to remove loose debris and dirt. Next use a soft mop with a mixture of water and a small amount of dish soap, making sure to change the water if it becomes too cloudy. You can simply let the floor air dry afterwards.

Linoleum Floors

Linoleum floors lose their glossy top layer after enduring foot traffic for long periods of time. First, do a thorough sweep. Second, apply a commercialgrade floor polishing solution. You may have to re-polish certain areas that are more worn than others.

Marble and Granite Floors

Make sure to sweep these floors regularly. On top of that, you can use a soft mop along with a mixture of warm water, stone cleaner, and mild detergent to keep these floors looking their best. Make sure to keep the area wet while working with any items that might scratch your floors like steel wool or scrubbing pads. Don’t use any diecontaining products, as they might stain your floors.

Vinyl Flooring

To clean your vinyl floors, combine a quarter cup of vinegar, water, and a drop of dish soap into a spray bottle. Then use a microfiber mop to clean your floors after “spritzing” them with the solution.
