Maintenance Monday – taking care of your floors

Today’s Maintenance Monday tip is brought to you by SF Gate.

Take care of your floors to make them last longer. Dirt is a floor’s worst enemy. When embedded into rugs and carpets, it wears out the fibers. On harder surfaces, like wood, laminate and vinyl, dirt causes scratches. Vacuum low-traffic carpets at least once a week; vacuum high-traffic areas more frequently. Protect wood, laminate and vinyl floors by sweeping every day and mopping weekly with a product recommended for the floor type. Use the minimum amount of fluid needed to clean wood and laminate, as saturation damages wood’s finish and causes laminate to warp.
