• 3 Tips for Cleaning Your Vinyl Flooring

    Specialty cleaning protects your property while clearing away grit, grime, and stains.

    Specialty cleaning services aren’t just for the ultra-rich. There are many situations where hiring a professional to do the work is more practical than doing it yourself. When you don’t already own the appropriate tools or supplies needed for a job—or when you don’t know what those materials might be—hiring an expert can actually save money.

    If you’re sure you can handle the job on your own, follow these tips to make the most of your efforts:

    • Use a doormat to help preserve your floor’s sheen. The grit and dirt that travels indoors on your shoes and on your pets’ feet doesn’t just settle into the contours of your flooring. Those tiny particles scrub away at vinyl’s shiny coating. Once dulled, it will take a professional to restore your floor’s original sheen.
    • Think “mild.” From soft brooms to gentle cleaners, it’s important to baby your vinyl flooring if you want it to last as long as possible. Use frequency and good habits instead of harsh chemicals to keep it looking its best. This also means using warm vs. hot water, and dry cleaning methods as much as possible. Once you scrub away the top protective layer of your floor, you can’t replace it on your own.
    • Rinse away soap. While many cleaners assure homeowners that rinsing isn’t necessary, those of us in professional cleaning know the truth. Soap doesn’t just clean away dirt. It leaves a sticky residue behind that attracts problems. Take the extra time to gently wash away soap. Your floor will thank you.
