tips for hard floor care & cleaning

Hardwood, tile, laminate, and vinyl—your business may feature various hard floors that demand meticulous cleaning and maintenance for both aesthetics and longevity.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to effectively deep clean hard floors:

1. Gather Your Supplies: Assemble essentials like a broom or vacuum, mop, bucket, microfiber towels, soft bristle brush, warm water, and the suitable cleaning solution.

2. Clear The Area: Ensure the area is entirely cleared of furniture, rugs, and objects to allow for thorough cleaning.

3. Sweep or Vacuum: Begin by sweeping or vacuuming the area to eliminate loose dirt and dust, paying close attention to corners and baseboards.

4. Prepare The Cleaning Solution: Mix an appropriate cleaning solution with warm water in a bucket, tailored to your specific flooring material.

5. Mop The Floor: Use a microfiber mop, dipped in the cleaning solution, and wring out excess water to prevent over-saturation.

6. Spot Clean: Address stubborn stains or spots by applying the cleaning solution to a scrub brush and gently working on the affected areas.

7. Rinse: Remove excess residue by using a clean mop dampened with plain water, effectively rinsing the surface.

8. Dry: Allow the floor to air dry or manually dry it with a clean microfiber cloth. Avoid walking on it until it’s completely dry.

9. Clean the Grout (Tile Floors): For tile floors, apply a grout cleaning solution to a grout brush and gently scrub between the tiles.

10. Apply Wax or Polish (Hardwood): Restore shine and protect the finish of hardwood floors with an appropriate floor wax or polish.

11. Replace Furniture: Once the floor is entirely dry, return the furniture and objects to their original positions.
