Today, we’re diving into the nitty-gritty of keeping your floors looking as fresh as the day they were laid. Whether it’s the plush carpet in your living room or the sleek laminate in your kitchen, at Frank’s, we know a thing or two about floors. 

So, let’s get cracking with some top tips for maintaining your floors and keeping them looking brill!

Carpet Care: Keep It Plush

Carpets are like the comfy slippers of flooring – they need a bit of TLC to stay cosy.

  • Vacuum Regularly: This is your carpet’s best friend. Regular vacuuming prevents dirt from getting ground in and can extend your carpet’s life.
  • Spot Clean Spills: Accidents happen! When they do, act fast. Blot spills with a clean cloth and use a carpet cleaner for tougher stains. Remember, scrubbing can damage the fibres.

Laminate and Vinyl: Shine On

Laminate and vinyl floors offer a fantastic look with less fuss – but they still love a bit of attention.

  • Sweep Regularly: Keep dust and dirt at bay with a good sweep or a dry mop.
  • Use the Right Cleaner: Use a cleaner specifically designed for laminate or vinyl. Avoid too much water – a damp mop is usually enough.
  • Avoid Scratches: Felt pads on furniture legs are a must to prevent scratching. And if you’ve got heels as sharp as your style, take them off before walking on laminate.

Hardwood Floors: Timeless Elegance

There’s nothing quite like the warm glow of hardwood. Here’s how to keep it shining:

  • Sweep or Vacuum Often: Dirt and grit can act like sandpaper, so keep your hardwood clean.
  • Use Wood Floor Cleaner: Regularly clean your floors with a product designed for hardwood.
  • Keep It Dry: Water is not a friend to hardwood. Wipe up spills immediately and use a barely damp mop for cleaning.

There you have it – your guide to keeping those floors looking smashing! Remember, regular care not only keeps your floors looking great but can also extend their life, saving you money in the long run.
