Cleaning Tips for Hard Flooring – Hardwood, Laminate & Vinyl Flooring
Use a microfiber mop or Swiffer to clean your floors daily
Vacuum with a soft-bristled floor brush attachment to clean up the dirt and dust
Before mopping, do ensure that your flooring has some sort of water-proofing as some hardwood and laminate floors can be damaged by moisture
For vinyl flooring, you can mop with a store-bought cleaner
Cleaning Tips for Soft Flooring – Carpets and Area Rugs
Daily or weekly vacuuming is recommended as they trap dirt and dust easily
As dirt and dust tend to hide underneath the furniture, it is best to shift them away first before vacuuming
As for disinfection of the flooring, do consult the professional cleaning company as some of the disinfectants, if used in a wrong way, they might cause harm to your body.
