5 TIPS FOR CLEANING AND TAKING CARE OF YOUR FLOORS

To think, a few years ago we were kids without a care in the world and now fast forward a few years and our exciting weekend plans involve cleaning the floors and washing clothes. Funny enough, something I assumed to be as simple as cleaning your floors actually require a lot thought to be put into - and not just buying any random floor product and mopping up the whole house.




"While the task of cleaning your floors may seem like the simplest one on your list, it is important to remember that different floors have their own set of cleaning needs that will keep your floors looking sparkling clean."


So in essence, different floor have different needs and the best floor care comes from knowing the most effective way of cleaning your specific flooring.  So before cleaning and sanitising without a method to your madness, here are some tips on how to clean and take care of your floors, keeping them in tiptop condition:





5 TIPS FOR CLEANING AND TAKING CARE OF YOUR FLOORS


1. GET TO KNOW YOUR FLOORS
- Find out what type of flooring you have. Laminate and vinyl floors have very different needs to tiles or your hardwood floors. Knowing what type of flooring you have also impacts what products you use on them and makes buying decisions easier.

2. LESS IS MORE - I know you feel like a proper adult when your cupboard of cleaning products is full but the age old saying of less is more is definitely true. Avoid using multiple products - try to find a good floor cleaner that has germ-killing properties such as the new Handy Andy Floor Cleaner and Handy Andy All Purpose Cleaner which has the power of Domestos. With benefits including removing tough dirt and grease, streak free shine, germ killing power, it's suitable for multiple surfaces and leaves surfaces smelling fresh.




3. CHOOSING THE RIGHT PRODUCT FOR THE RIGHT FLOOR - It doesn't help to just grab the first product on the shelf, when shopping for cleaning products, always check the manufacturers specifications to ensure you're choosing the right product for your type of flooring.

4. TAKE CARE OF THEM - Take care of your flooring in all the little ways you can. Even things like not pushing and dragging your furniture make a big difference in protecting your floors. Also make use of rugs, furniture pads and furniture wheels.

5. PREP YOUR FLOORS WELL - Always remove any form of dirt or dust from your floors prior to cleaning them with a solution. Use a soft bristle broom to sweep and dirt from the surfaces away.


I hope these tips help you "adult" a little better (I know I needed them) by understanding what it means to take care of your floors and choose the right products for their needs.
