6 Hacks to Protect and Prolong the Life of Your Carpet, Tiles, and Wooden Floors

6 Hacks to Protect and Prolong the Life of Your Carpet, Tiles, and Wooden Floors

Carpets, tiles, and wooden floors are popular surface choices in houses and businesses, not only for aesthetic purposes but also for practical reasons. If maintained properly, they will last a long time. If you neglect to give regular care, the materials will deteriorate faster, and it will cost quite a lot to replace them. To avoid that, here are six easy ways to protect and prolong the life of your carpet, tiles, and wooden floors.

  • During the winter months, immediately clean salt residue from the carpet: Vacuum first, to remove as much salt as possible, pushing and pulling from all angles of the carpet fibers. Then, lightly apply water and vinegar solution with a sponge or towel after spot testing. Let the solution sit for about 10-15 minutes. Remove all water solution from carpet by blotting it up with a clean dry sponge or towel until dry. Repeat if necessary.
  • Use floor mats: Put a bristly floor mat outside the front door and encourage your family members, guests, staff, or customers to wipe their feet before coming inside. Place additional mats inside for them to dry their feet.
  • During rainy or snowy seasons, keep old towels or cleaning rags near the door: Wipe up puddles immediately. Standing water can damage your floors.
  • Clean your tiles regularly: Tiles are one of the most reliable materials for kitchens and bathrooms. Use a neutral cleaner to gently rub the surfaces on a regular basis to prevent dirt and mold from building up.
  • Treat pet stains immediately: Pet urine that is left on carpeting can cause permanent color loss and damage. If your furry friend has an accident on the carpet, clean it up as quickly as possible.
  • Call the professionals: Carpets, tiles, and wood floors can be more delicate than you think. It is recommended that you receive regular professional cleaning by qualified technicians to significantly increase the life of your carpets, tiles, or any kind of surface at your home or office and keep them looking beautiful as well!
