Cleaning Your Floors

In today’s fast paced world, anything that can save time and conserve energy to help make our lives easier is worth investigating. When it comes to flooring, options that are easy to clean and maintain are the way to go! If you are in need of a new floor, and are interested in simplifying your cleaning routine, check out these easy-to-clean flooring options.

Hardwood Floors

Believe it or not, finished hardwood flooring is surprisingly easy to maintain. Due to its sturdy surface, it only requires dusting or vacuuming to stay company ready. New hardwood floors are designed to resist scratching and wear, so maintenance is minimal. If things get messy, you can use a cleaner designed for wood floors, but check the manufacturer’s recommendations to be sure.

Cleaning Your Hardwood Flooring


An excellent choice in areas that will need to tolerate some mess, such as kitchens, baths and entryways, tile is easy to mop up when life happens. Simply sweep up debris and then mop for everyday dirt. When necessary, tile can be deep cleaned and scrubbed, especially if the grout is stained. The easiest way to keep tile clean is by wiping up spills right away, before they can soak into the grout and cause stains.


Don’t overlook carpet as a low-maintenance flooring option. As long as it’s vacuumed and cared for properly, carpet can remain in good condition for many years. In addition, most carpets today have stain protection, so there is less to stress about if you have a messy family or fur kids. As with tile, make sure to clean up spills right away, before they can stain, by using a recommended carpet cleaner.

Laminate Flooring

A great option if you want a hard surface floor but don’t have a big budget, laminate is an affordable and easy to clean option. They can be maintained with just a broom and dust mop. You can spot clean them with a spray cleaner but avoid getting your laminate floors wet. If spills happen, be sure to clean them up right away, because laminate can swell if exposed to water.

Vinyl Floors

Probably the most versatile of floors on the market today, luxury vinyl is available in either plank, to mimic wood, or tile, to mimic tile or natural stone flooring. It can be swept, vacuumed, dry or wet mopped or scrubbed.
