How to Clean Different Types of FlooringDon't risk damaging your floors by cleaning them improperly. You will wear floors faster if you don't take care of them properly. We recommend that you give all the floors in your home a little more love and attention (in addition to sweeping and vacuuming) once every few months. Learn to take care of the various types of floors in your home with this quick and easy guide.
Porcelain tile floorsCleaning of porcelain stoneware floors is simple. First, vacuum or dry the dirt or dirt on the surface. Make sure you use a vacuum cleaner suitable for tiles if you choose to suck instead of sweeping. After removing any removable debris, proceed to cleaning. Porcelain can be porous, so use a homemade solution instead of an aggressive detergent. Mix a cup of distilled white vinegar in a bucket of hot water and rub as usual.
Laminate floorsWhile wood and laminate are very different, the cleaning process is the same. Sweep and dust the floors and remove all dirt at the surface level with a cloth broom. Then take half a cup of vinegar and add it to a liter of water. Use this solution with rags or a mop to clean the floors. Be careful not to overdo the amount of liquid on the floor. For wooden and laminate floors, it may be necessary to pass this solution two or three times on the floor. For laminate floors, check if the floor needs aesthetic finishing once cleaned.
Brick FloorsThere are four simple steps to cleaning brick floors: sweeping, scrubbing, rinsing and dust. First, sweep the floors, then take a spoonful of detergent or borax and add it to a liter of water for the brick washing formula. If you want a more effective cleaning solution, use one part of vinegar for fifteen parts of water.
After cleaning, let the solution sit on the bricks for a few minutes, then rinse completely, especially if the brick floor is sealed. Finally, if you have a sealed brick floor, you may need to wash the stuck dust with water and allow it to dry completely. Repeat the washing steps until lime and dust have disappeared.
