Blog The Ultimate Guide to Maintaining Your New Floors by Flash Flooring Apr 05, 2024

Congratulations on your new floors from Flash Flooring! Now that you have beautifully installed floors, it’s important to maintain them to keep them looking great for years to come. To help you in this maintenance journey, we have put together the ultimate guide to maintaining your new floors.

1. Regular Cleaning: One of the most important aspects of maintaining your floors is regular cleaning. Depending on the type of flooring you have, different cleaning methods may be required. For hardwood floors, a dry mop or vacuum with a soft brush attachment is ideal. For tile floors, a mixture of warm water and mild detergent works well. Be sure to avoid harsh chemicals that can damage the surface of your floors.

2. Avoid Water Damage: Water damage is a common issue that can affect all types of flooring. To prevent water damage, be sure to clean up spills promptly and avoid excessive moisture in the air. Use area rugs or mats in high traffic areas, especially in kitchens and bathrooms.

3. Protect Your Floors: To avoid scratches and dents, use furniture pads under the legs of heavy furniture. High heels and pets’ nails can also cause damage to your floors, so be mindful of these potential hazards. In addition, consider using floor protectors on your chairs and table legs to prevent scratching.

4. Avoid Sun Damage: Direct sunlight can cause discoloration and fading of your floors over time. Use curtains or blinds to protect your floors from UV rays, especially in rooms with large windows.

5. Refresh Your Floors: To keep your floors looking their best, consider refreshing them from time to time. This can include polishing hardwood floors, resealing tile grout, or steam cleaning carpets. Regular maintenance will help extend the life of your floors and maintain their beauty.

6. Professional Care: For a deep clean and rejuvenation of your floors, consider hiring a professional flooring service like Flash Flooring. Our team of experts can provide professional cleaning, polishing, and sealing services to keep your floors in top condition.
