Are you thinking of home renovations? If you are, choosing the right floor is one of the most important decisions you can make.
Nothing is as challenging as maintaining a floor. It is both time-consuming and costly. You can add accessories, replace furniture, and even paint the walls, but worn-out floors are just so frustrating and challenging to redecorate.
To maintain your floors, you must clean them regularly and using the right equipment. The truth is that some floors are easier to clean than others. It is quite hectic when you have a floor that is hard to maintain.
But, do not worry. We got you covered. Below are types of floors that are easier to clean and maintain in general.
Wood is one of the top choices for most homeowners because it is cozy and long-lasting. You can either choose engineered wooden planks or solid wood flooring. In terms of cleaning, it is relatively easy to maintain.
You can easily mop up if there’s spillage and vacuum or sweep when dust accumulates.
The only disadvantage with wooden flooring is that it can be quite hard to maintain in the long run. Oil, dirt, and grime quickly build up over time, and, scratches tend to occur frequently, especially when it encounters stones or grit.
Therefore, as much as wooden floors are stylish, it is best to place a mat or a rug at the entry doors of your home. This helps to reduce the amount of grit making its way to your floor.
Laminate flooring is good, especially if you want something closer to wood but more cost-effective and durable. Also, it’s relatively easy to keep it clean and spotless. Sweeping and mopping are all you need to give it a fresh look.
If you get a scratch on the laminate floor, rub some vegetable oil on it and mop through with a rag or mop.
The downside to laminate flooring is that once damaged, you must replace the entire floor. It is crucial to be careful about the amount of water you use to clean it, as too much can leave it dumpy.
Tiles are beautiful, especially for high traffic and moisture-prone areas. They are available in different materials like Terra Cotta, Porcelain, quarry, and ceramic.
With tiles, little effort is required when it comes to cleaning. A mixture of water and vinegar is all you need to remove any stubborn stains in most cases.
Keep in mind that you cannot successfully clean tiles without cleaning the grouts. You can use a paste of baking soda and water to scrub the grout lines using an old toothbrush or a customized grout brush.
The only disadvantage of tiles is that they are prone to dents and can be quite challenging to repair once damaged.
