Floors are meant to be walked on. However, the constant stream of footsteps, objects being carted in and out and the general traffic can take its toll on even the most durable floors. Still, that doesn’t mean you can let your flooring become dirty or neglected.
In this article, Handyman Connection® of Mason shares a few tips and tricks on keeping your floors looking immaculate despite the high foot traffic.
Maintaining floors that experience heavy foot traffic is by no means a walk in the park. You need to regularly perform upkeep tasks so your floors last as long as they should. Be extra vigilant regarding the areas that get the most amount of foot traffic, like the entrance and the hallways. Choose off-peak hours to do the cleaning so as not to disrupt the regular programming.
There are ways to achieve optimal results when cleaning the floor, one of which is to clean according to the flooring material. For one, hardwood and vinyl floors need to be swept every few hours to remove dirt that may be scuffing the surface. If your floor is carpeted, invest in an energy-efficient vacuum that can handle large amounts of dirt and daily usage.
Place Foot Mats and Rugs
Mats and rugs can help catch dirt and mud that would otherwise just end up all over your floor. This will also make cleanup more manageable since you only have to focus on a few key areas. Besides, foot mats and rugs add charm to any floor, so they serve both aesthetic and practical purposes. Just make sure to get the type of rug material that’s absorbent and can trap dirt.
Investing in high-quality flooring can help you cut back on cleaning efforts and costs.
