When it comes to cleaning services one of the things that has to be taken into consideration is the kind of floors that have been installed in your premises. Flooring can be a factor in the pricing of the services offered because some kinds of floors require more work. Whatever floor you have in place should be well maintained and cleaned. This article discusses three floor types: ceramic floors, hardwood floors and laminated vinyl floors. Ceramic tile can be unglazed or glazed and is usually made from natural clay. The unglazed tends to more difficult to clean and therefore needs more attention. The glazed kind has a glass-like surface that is tough. Cleaners will start of by removing loose dirt by vacuuming and then will remove the grit by mopping the floor with a damp sponge. Whatever is used to clean the floor should not be abrasive because that would scratch the tile. If the tile has not been glazed, then work with something that is not harsh. A cleaning solution without soap is the best bet. Clean grout regularly so that mould and bacteria do not find a place to grow. If there is a spill on your floor be sure to clean the grout immediately to avoid staining. One of the best things you can do is to apply a sealer made from silicon which provides the necessary grout protection.
Hardwood floors need cleaning techniques that can maintain the floor in good condition for many years. Good cleaning services can stand your floor, seal it and buff it to leave it looking absolutely professional and fantastic. If the finish that has been used on the floor is a urethane one, then wax should not be used. Simply sweep the floor or vacuum it thoroughly in order to remove all grit and dirt. The broom should have very fine ends to avoid scratching the floor. You may also want to consider placing mats or rugs at the doors so that less dirt can find its way into the house. A brush attachment works best if you choose to vacuum a hardwood floor. If there are any puddles or liquid spills clean them up immediately. They should not be allowed to sit. After 3 to 5 years have a professional cleaning service come by and re-coats the urethane finish. Laminated vinyl is another floor that can be found especially in areas of high traffic. It is easy to install or replace and is also affordable. In addition cleaners find it easy to clean. The easiest way to maintain this floor is by vacuuming or sweeping and then mopping it. By making sure there is no grit the floor will remain free from scratches. The floor should be mopped with water that is warm and then rinsed off with fresh or clean water. Be sure that the cleaning agents you use are not abrasive. Again, if you have a liquid spill clean it up quick before it stains.
