Spring Clean Your Floors with Stanley Steemer

When most of us think about spring cleaning, the first few things that come to mind are cleaning out our closets and dresser drawers, dusting forgotten shelves, and organizing pantries, cabinets and drawers.

Just as important, if not more, are your floors. Most of the floors in your home get walked on every day, meaning that dirt, pebbles, food, and liquids are being soaked up and rubbed into your flooring. Now that mud season has arrived, it’s even more important to provide the proper maintenance for your floors.

Different flooring requires varying levels of care. Vinyl is a no-maintenance type of flooring, which only requires a quick sweep of the floors. To maintain shine, all that’s necessary is a quick mop and a thin coat of acrylic polish.

Ceramic flooring, on the other hand, requires daily maintenance, which can be easily done with plain water. Hardwood can be maintained with sweeping and vacuuming, but for stains and spills, a mop will be required. Remember to use little water, as an excessive amount of moisture can leak between the planks, resulting in lasting damage.

With carpet, a quality vacuum and a clean vacuum filter are the best practices for keeping your carpets clean. When it comes to ridding carpets of stains and spills, blot rather than rub, and use fresh water. If that does not work, Flooring America has cleaning products that are safe to remove stains. Ranging from cleaning pads and cleaning powder, to carpet cleaner and pet cleaner, we have various tools and cleaners to assist with your cleaning.

Ring in Spring with a Bold & Beautiful Entryway

During the winter, your entryway might have been bombarded with snow pants and boots, winter gloves and hats, and jackets. If your entryway is drab and uninviting, chances are, when you come in from the cold, your family will toss their clothing on the floor in a hurry to get warm.

No matter the month, it’s easy to make your entryway inviting, and with a clean and organized look, your family will want to take the time to hang their coats and put away their footwear.  Your space might have awkward angles, or maybe it’s really big or extremely small. There’s a solution for each and every situation.

Maintain an Orderly Entryway

If your family has a tendency to own a plethora of sweatshirts and coats, hooks will be your savior.  Hooks are especially wonderful if you don’t have a closet nearby, and for grab and go items that you use daily. Having a bench with a plush cushion on top is perfect for your family to sit on while they put on and take off their footwear. Not only does this limit the chance of simply kicking off your shoes, but it also adds charm to the space. If your bench has a lid that opens, you also have convenient storage space that frees the area of clutter.

The Little Things also Matter

It’s easy to make big changes with just a few simple tweaks, especially when space and money are factors. A small table near your entrance makes a perfect spot to leave daily mail, keys and other small items. Baskets and cubbies under a table or bench help keep clutter out of sight while adding style to the space.
