It’s hard keeping your floors clean especially if your home receives a lot of traffic from kids, pets, guests, and even yourself. We went through the same struggle until we learned a few tricks on how you can keep your floors looking clean throughout the week.
Tips to Keep Your Floors Clean
Changing from your outdoor shoes to your slippers before entering your home is one of the first steps that will help keep your floors looking their cleanest. You would be surprised at how much dirt, dust, bacteria and outdoor debris comes inside all off of your shoes.
Sweep Your Floors Daily
An easy way to maintain cleanliness in your home is to sweep your floors daily. Taking ten minutes every day to do a basic sweep will do a lot in keeping your floors looking clean. Make sure you have a proper broom and do not use a standard one made from plant stalk material.
Weekly Vacuum Floors and Carpets
Make vacuuming a part of your weekly cleaning schedule. Not only does vacuuming suck up a lot more dirt and dust than sweeping, but it is also a good preventative measure to avoid scratching your floors while mopping. When vacuuming, make sure you use the proper attachments for the best results.
Mop Your Floors at the End of Every Week
Refresh your floors after a long week with weekly mopping. You can mop your floors with plain water and soap to get our grime, dirt, and stains that have accumulated throughout the week. Mop them with hot boiling water, open a few windows, and watch them dry super-fast!
Make them Sparkle
This is probably the most affordable, easy, and do-able trick that will surely make your floors sparkle. This trick will work if you have tiles, hardwood, or even laminate flooring. Wipe your floors with a mix of half water and vinegar to bring back the shine to dull floors! One of my go-to cleaning hacks, vinegar is cheap and plus it’s environmentally friendly and non-toxic.
So what are you waiting for? Clean away!
