How to Spring-Clean Your Hardwood Floors
Ah, the joys of spring cleaning! Said no one, ever. Apart from maybe a very determined and slightly OCD mole who lived near a riverbank somewhere in England.
The term ‘spring cleaning’ conjures up all kinds of images: clean, uncluttered surfaces and storage areas, strange little headscarfs that only come out from the drawer once a year, overwhelming top-to-toe cleaning sessions. And that’s just the kitchen! Your floors need special treatment too. Whether you have hardwood, laminate, tile, carpet, or vinyl, there are some easy floor treatments that will help you restore your floor to tippety-top condition.
BCS are experts in cleaning all types of flooring surfaces and we’re bouncing up and down to share with you some of our top tips and secrets for getting your floors Spring-ready in a jiffy!
Hardwood Floor Treatments
•Begin your wood floor treatments by sweeping or vacuuming the entire floor area. If needed, use a vacuum attachment to get all the goodies out of the edges and corners. After the bigger pieces of dirt have been removed, consider using a mop treated with a dusting agent.
•Dilute a wood-cleaning product per the instructions on the package.
•Using a damp sponge or a rag mop, dip it into the cleaning product and wash the floor with it. Avoid leaving standing water.
•If the cleaning product instructs it, rinse the floor off with straight water by filling a bucket with water and using a clean mop.
•Wipe up any excess water.
•Dry with a towel, or even a fan to avoid warping the wood.
•It’s important to note that when cleaning and treating hardwood floors, you read up on any products that you plan on using – make sure they are suitable for your type of hardwood and that you have all of the necessary items to complete your task before you begin.
