You’ve just hired professional floor cleaners. Your carpets are steam cleaned and your tiles and grout are looking new again. As refreshed as your home feels, you’re probably looking to keep that same fresh feeling around as long as you can. Below are some tips for you to feel like your home is cleaner and more refreshed in between your professional floor cleanings:
Frequently mop tiles to prevent build up between floor cleanings
A vinegar wash (1/4 or 1/2 cup of vinegar to 1 gallon of water) will help to remove any new buildup. After mopping, give it a quick rinse with warm water – and you will have a sparkly, refreshed floor. Make sure you properly dry your floors after so no new grime and bacteria can grow.
Regularly vacuum before and after steam cleaning services
You’ve heard it before, but this can prolong the life of your fresh carpets more than you’d think! If you have high-traffic areas or family members who work from home, these are best to vacuum daily. A quick run through is all you need to keep your home feeling clean and elongate the life of your professional steam cleaning.
Just hired floor cleaning services? Take your shoes off before coming inside
Mum and dad asked you to do this for a reason: it works! Tracking dirt inside is what causes your carpets to get so dirty and why you need to vacuum your house so often. So cut it off at the source. House slippers are a great solution if you need to keep warm in the winter months or want to stay off the cold tile.
And lastly – nothing keeps your floors cleaner and fresher than a consistent professional cleaning. Carpet cleaning is recommended at least once every 12 months – but if you have pets, children, or find yourself home more than usual, we recommend getting a steam clean closer to every 6 months to 9 months.
We recommend including a tile clean every other visit, so it’s approximately every 18 to 24 months. Our staff our happy to address any specific concerns you have about keeping your floors clean or the care of your tiles and carpets.
