If you have flooring that needs to be cleaned, and don’t quite know where to begin, you may want to keep these few tips in mind. The first tip, is that you need to determine what types of flooring you have inside your house or office that you need to clean. Next, you have to figure out what types of cleaners you are going to need to use, and avoid, as well as being able to ensure that the shine remains. There are a few main types of flooring that you are going to need to clean, being:

  • hard wood
  • vinyl
  • porcelain
  • ceramic tiles

Because these types of floors are so popular, there is no wonder why so many people need help cleaning them. The traffic areas in the home or office will often show wear and tear pretty quickly unless you keep up on the floor cleaning schedule, but putting the time in to ensure you are cleaning them properly will help you to get the most life out of them. There are a lot of different types of floor cleaners on the market, and you are going to want to know exactly what type of flooring that you are trying to clean in order to make sure you get the proper cleaning solutions. Some cleaners that work well on ceramic or porcelain floors will eat away at the glues found on the vinyl flooring. This means that after a few cleanings, the vinyl floor will begin peeling up, and cost you more money in the long run.

Just pay close attention before you make your purchase, to ensure that you are buying the right cleaner for your floors.

After you have given the floors a good deep clean, you are going to want to keep it’s shine and luster for a long time to come. The only way to properly do this is by using a buffer to polish the surface of the floors. It doesn’t matter what type of flooring you have really, there are going to be buffers built for each style. You need to ensure that you are also using the proper speeds on the buffer in order to keep from destroying the floor rather than actually cleaning.
