Maintaining the appearance and longevity of your flooring is essential for any homeowner. Whether you have engineered timber floorboards, hybrid flooring, vinyl flooring or laminate flooring, keeping your flooring in good condition requires regular maintenance and care.
In this blog, DIY Floorboards discusses general floor maintenance tips to help you preserve the beauty and durability of your flooring.
Keep It Clean
One of the most important things you can do to maintain your hybrid flooring is to keep it clean. Dirt and debris can scratch your flooring surface, so it’s important to vacuum or sweep your floors regularly to remove any dirt or debris. Clean it up if you have a spill promptly to prevent any staining. Clean your floors with a pH-neutral cleaning solution specifically designed for your type of flooring and a soft broom, dust mop or vacuum with a soft brush attahment. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as these can damage the finish of your flooring and affect the warranty of your floors. We recommend using the Quick-Step Cleaning Kit.
Protect Your Flooring from Scratches and Scuffs
Another essential aspect of floor maintenance is to protect your flooring from scratches and scuffs. To do this, place mats or rugs in high-traffic areas and use felt pads under furniture to prevent scratches. If you have pets, gently trim their nails regularly to minimize damage to your flooring.
Protect Your Flooring from Moisture
In addition to regular cleaning and protection, it’s also essential to protect your flooring from moisture.
Maintaining the appearance and longevity of your engineered timber flooring, hybrid flooring or laminate flooring requires regular cleaning, protection, moisture control and inspection. Following these and our other general floor maintenance tips, you can keep your flooring looking new for years to come.
