Products to Use to Clean Your Floors
Keeping your floors clean can be one of the most difficult chores, especially if you have a large family, pets, or small children. With so many different choices of flooring available to homeowners today for housekeeping services, it is hard to know which products are the most effective and safe to use on each of the different flooring surfaces in your home. Different surfaces require different products and methods. Carpet should be vacuumed, and there are dozens of stain remover liquids, gels, and powders available for carpeted floors. Hardwood, tile, linoleum, vinyl, and other hard woods should be swept and mopped on a regular basis. The products you should use for housekeeping services vary depending on the type of material used.
Cleaning carpets can be extremely difficult and frustrating, especially in high-traffic areas. Maids you hire should be vacuumed thoroughly before you attempt to remove stains or use a steam-cleaner. If maids don’t vacuum first, then ask them to simply scrub the dirt caught in carpet fibers deeper into the floor. For simple spot removal, carefully blot or scrape the entire area before you apply any cleaning solution. Ask maids to not rub the spill or stain – this may make it worse by blending it further into the carpet and creating a larger area of discoloration. Ask maids to apply spot cleaner liberally, and start from the outside of the spot, blotting in toward the middle to prevent spreading the stain. Use a clean white bath towel to soak up excess moisture. Place the towel over the stain and lean or stand on it for a few moments.
While doing housekeeping services, if your maids are cleaning hard surfaces, pay careful attention to what type of cleanser they are using. Some surfaces are vulnerable to the ingredients of some products, so read the caution label on the products maids intend to use carefully beforehand. Lighter-colored linoleum and vinyl floors can be scrubbed with a mixture of bleach and hot water. There are products designed specifically for natural hard woods, and there are also protective sealants sold in home improvement stores that can protect the surface and shine of your floor for years to come. Tile cleaners are generally more abrasive than those designed for hard woods, and occasionally it will be necessary to use grout cleaner on your tile floors to keep them bright and clean. Some cleansers are appropriate for any type of hard surface, such as Swiffer WetJet solution, Mr. Clean, or Pine Sol. They come in a variety of formulas and scents.
These above tips will be quite helpful not only to maids but also to home owners who wish to do simple housekeeping services on their own.
