Cleaning the floors is my least favorite job of all, so I have gathered a few tips to help me get it done quickly and in the best manner. Happy cleaning!
- Hardwood Flooring – If you have waxed Hardwood floors, you will want to stay away from liquid products and go with a duster and or a broom as often as you feel necessary. If they are not waxed, add a small amount of mild soap, about ¼ cup per gallon of water and a soft mop and you are all set.
- Bamboo Flooring – Bamboo is a new favorite for sustainable flooring. You will want to approach this in the same way you would a hardwood.
- Natural Stone – If your stone tiles are sealed you can easily use a damp microfiber mop and warm water for this job. Do not use chemicals as this could penetrate the stones and leave a stain or mark.
- Porcelain Tile – For a deep cleaning, you can you a stem mop about once a month. For spot cleaning and on a weekly basis you will want to use a vinegar based spray to kill germs and clear away spill and stains.
