We hear stories on the news about tile floors testing positive for staph infections such as the shower rooms in two local Las Vegas public pools recently but we often don’t think about our own floors harboring such germs. We walk on our floors for hours each day and while we do take care of the surface cleaning such as sweeping and vacuuming, do we ever stop to think about the importance of a professional cleaning and maintenance plan to remove harmful bacteria and germs? We often make the assumption that a surface cleaning is good enough and nothing more is needed but in actuality it is. If you don’t take proper care of your floors and without a reputable floor maintenance plan you will end up with flooring that is faded, dull, and lackluster as well as possibly covered with germs and other contaminants. It’s inevitable with a heavy traffic area and it can be almost impossible to deep clean and maintain. Silver State Floor Restoration knows the importance of clean flooring. Silver State Floor Restoration has been cleaning, polishing, sealing and restoring both natural stone floors and man-made stone floors in Las Vegas, Summerlin, North Las Vegas and Henderson since 2001.
Flooring is one of the largest and most used surface areas in the home and it requires regular cleaning. Keeping tile floors clean can be a hardship, especially if you have different types of tiles. One of the most common types of tiling is ceramic tile. Silver State Floor Restoration recommends wiping up spills immediately to avoid stains or damaging your floors and routine cleaning to prevent harsh scrubbing.
The experts at Silver State Floor Restoration have provided these simple tips for DIY surface cleanings, between our professional visits:
• Clean spills quickly – keep absorbent cloths handy, clean up muddy footprints around your doorway or water that has been tracked into your home during inclement weather. Keep a towel near your doorway when during rain storms. Doormats are an excellent choice for preserving your tile flooring.
• Clean tile floors regularly – Dust, vacuum and sweep on a regular basis, damp mop floors weekly to ensure the minimum of dirt and grime build up.
