How-to: Floor maintenance 101

Yes, floors can be neat and pleasing to the eyes.

Floors may be made of different materials, whether it may be wood, concrete or marble, yet proper maintenance is essential in maintaining its quality. While floors are usually the dirtiest parts of our home, here are some tips to help you keep your flooring to tip-top shape.

Racks and cabinets for footwear.

Dirty slippers or any footwear used outdoors should be placed in a rack placed by your entrance door as much as possible. Also, racks and cabinets help organize your footwear.

Cap your furniture’s legs.

Placing caps on your furniture’s legs will help in reducing damages to your flooring. Alternatively, you can opt for felt pads for pieces like lamps, TVs, computers and more.

Homemade is the way to go.

Be resourceful and make the most of the ingredients found at home as means of cleaning your floors. Just a little advice: Avoid any citrus-based ingredients on wooden floors.

Doormats for the entrance

Doormats function like a first line of defense from dust and dirt when anyone enters your home. Quick tip: make sure to add mats to various entry points especially your bathroom and bedroom.
