Why you should deep clean your floors

Keeping your home clean is essential for not only comfort but your family’s health and well-being as well.

Why you should deep clean your floors


Carpets attract and hold onto many things that aggravate allergies and respiratory issues, including pet dander, dirt, dust, hair and pollutants. Regular cleaning will alleviate these symptoms, along with extending the life of your carpet. However, proper carpet maintenance is more than vacuuming twice a week. We recommend a professional deep clean yearly. Chronic allergy sufferers might consider professional carpet cleaning more often.


With regular use, dirt and contaminants build up around tiles and discolor these surfaces and the surrounding grout. Leaving this debris can weaken the tile flooring and necessitate a complete replacement. Routine cleaning is helpful to help your tile last longer. However, a monthly deep clean is even better. We do not suggest vinegar because of its acidity. It can etch the finish, especially on the polished tile. We recommend Mr. Clean because of its pH neutral, doesn't leave a build-up or film, and its low acidity. Add a 50/50 Mr. Clean and water solution in a spray bottle, spray and let sit for five minutes or so. Scrub away with a soft scrub brush, a toothbrush in the grout, then rinse with hot water. That should do the trick!


Part of the beauty with hardwood flooring is the cracks, crevices, and wood grain. These beauty marks are also a magnet for debris, oil, and allergens. Sweeping and mopping are essential steps to maintain the appearance and cleanliness of your floors. Vacuuming can help get the dust and dirt out of the hidden crevices. Just make sure the vacuum does NOT have a beater brush.


Vinyl flooring is standard in kitchens and bathrooms, but it is also starting to become quite popular throughout the house because of its durability. A quick sweep and mop to clean up your ordinary dust and dirt is good at least once a week. A good old deep clean on your hands and knees to center on any scuffs or stains would be good to do quarterly, too.


Your rug can last for generations if treated with care. Just like carpeting, vacuuming twice a week is recommended. Once or twice a year, give us a call for professional cleaning. We will provide your area rugs the deep cleaning necessary to remove dust, stains, and odors.
