Keeping your floors clean can feel like a never-ending task. One moment it’s clean, then the next… it has paw prints galore or baby food spilled everywhere. Luckily, there are some steps you can take to maximize the time between cleans. Read on to learn more about how you can keep your floor cleaner for longer. 

Types of Floors

The most important thing to consider when working towards keeping your floors clean is knowing the type or types of floors your home has. No two floor materials are alike, which means they must be cleaned differently, too. Types of floors around your home can include stone, tile, carpet, and hardwood, among others.

Tips To Keep Your Floor Clean

Once you know what your floors are made of, there are several things you can do to slow the time in between cleaning them, including:

Sweep Often

Sweeping or vacuuming daily or nearly daily will definitely help to keep your floors in tip-top shape. Removing any dirt, dust, or other grime by vacuuming or sweeping is one of the best things you can do to lengthen the time between mopping.

Use The Right Cleaner

Once you know your floor material, be on the lookout for and research the best cleaner for that floor type. For example, wood floors should take a different cleaner than tile. Carpet needs to be shampooed but other materials will not need that treatment.

Take Your Shoes Off

Taking your shoes off prior to entering the home is an easy way to ensure less dust and dirt get in the home. With this practice comes cleaner floors.

Clean Your Pets, Too

As much as we love them, pets can bring unwanted dirt into the home and onto the floors. Be sure paws are wiped before entering the home and that they are brushed frequently to minimize shedding.

Shampoo Your Carpets

Taking good care of carpets often means shampooing the carpets on a scheduled basis. This “deep clean” can help remove dust and dirt that is hidden within the carpet fibers and truly kill any bacteria that has not been picked up by a sweeper.
