Carpeting provides a soft and comfortable surface in your home. You would want to make sure that it is properly cleaned to avoid stains, but at the same time that you avoid using overly harsh chemicals on it.

Never vacuum or sweep carpets using a standard vacuum cleaner. Use a vacuum cleaner specifically designed to clean carpets, such as a carpet sweeper.

Always use an absorbent cloth when cleaning and drying the floor.

When possible, use a damp mop to remove water from the floor instead of wiping it up with paper towels. Paper towels can leave behind residue and cause permanent damage to your floors.

For spills, use baking soda or cornstarch to absorb the liquid. Cornstarch absorbs liquids more readily than baking soda does.


Vinyl flooring is low-maintenance, and as long as you keep up with regular cleaning, it should last a long time. To clean vinyl floors, you will need to use a bucket of warm water and a clean rag. You can also add some dish soap to the mix if needed. Make sure to rinse the dirty water away after use.

If your floors get dirty, you may have too much dirt buildup in the grout lines. Clean them out with a toothbrush or clean cloth to remove any residue and prevent further buildup.

If you have an area of your home with a significant amount of traffic, such as the living room, consider using non slip rubber mats to keep your floor safe and dry. 

If you have pets, be sure to clean up any accidents on the floor promptly. You should also cover your furniture so that it does not get scratched or stained.


It is important to know the key difference between hardwood and laminate flooring. The biggest difference is that hardwood is made from a tree that has been harvested while laminate is made of a man-made product. But there is more to it than just the material used in manufacturing them. Hardwood flooring has natural oils in its wood grain, giving it a deep, rich look and feel. It also has a greater lifespan.

Regularly vacuum your floor to remove debris and prevent dirt from clogging the air vents. A vacuum cleaner with a long cord will help you quickly reach every area of your floor.

Keep hardwood floors clean by regularly sweeping or damp mopping, especially if you live in an area with pets or small children. Use a mop that is meant for hardwood floors to keep it disinfected and free of bacterial accumulation.

For more thorough cleaning of hardwood floors, use a microfiber cloth or soft brush rather than rubbing alcohol or other chemicals that could leave streaks on the wood’s finishings.
