CARE & MAINTENANCE
WE SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY
It’s important to keep your floor at the right temperature and humidity. If you are comfortable, it is likely that it is right for the floor.
Temperatures should remain between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, with relative humidity levels between 35 and 50%. And don’t forget doormats… they’ll help collect dirt, so no one has to endure dirty floors while being offered excellent service.
Area rugs are the perfect solution for protecting your new floor from traffic, spills, and other hazards that tend to come with a busy household. You’ll find different materials available like wool, cotton, nylon, etc., but rubber-backed area rugs should be avoided because they can cause staining around sink drains due to moisture retention due to moisture retention – plus they will also slide around on hardwood floors without non-slip pads! If you want a carpet feel, choose instead an indoor-outdoor type felt pad (without metal parts), which provides cushioning under furniture legs while preventing scratches on the surface of the floor.
Doing your flooring the favor of replacing chairs with plastic casters will not only make it safer but also more aesthetically pleasing. Pets should be kept away from floors, and their nails trimmed to avoid making scratches on the floor surface.
Rolling heavy objects across a surface can cause damage, so take care when moving them around in order to prevent any accidents. Doing routine maintenance by vacuuming weekly is important for keeping everything clean; however, do not use the machine with an upright-style nozzle (e.g., “beater bar”), which can leave scratches on some hardwood floors and linoleum designs—it’s best to choose one that has bristles instead of brushes on the end. The best way to clean a laminate floor is with Basic Coatings Squeaky Clean or Bona Hardwood Cleaner. These products will get the stubborn stains off your floors and keep them looking new.

The right vacuum can be the key to a successful carpet cleaning. Use it in tandem with your favorite household cleaner and know-how for the best results.
Here are some tips on removing common stains: Always treat the affected area immediately using cold water or club soda, gently remove as much solid material as possible with a spoon or dull knife, add liquid detergent sparingly if needed, and then use the high suction function of your vacuum machine back and forth until clean.
If you need a spot removal solvent, use one that is approved by the Carpet and Rug Institute of America. Apply several drops to a clean white cloth and blot the carpet in an inconspicuous area for quick results! If any change in color occurs on your rug after applying, consult with a professional cleaner immediately. If stains persist after cleaning, dampen tufts in the stained area with 3% hydrogen peroxide until it forms foam or bubbles; this means the bacteria are being killed, leaving no residual odor once dried out.
Vacuuming your carpet can be an effective way to keep the soil from embedding itself in it. There are a few things that you should consider when vacuuming for best results, but no matter what kind of vacuum cleaner you have, it’s important to not pull on snags or burned fibers, as this may lead to them pulling out with ease and causing more damage than if they were simply left alone.
This is especially true with carpets where there might already be some wear and tear, like burnt areas, which will become even worse over time by continuing down the same path instead of taking care of them immediately.
If you want to get rid of those pesky dents in your carpet, put a coin on the dent and then use light pressure with it. You can also try using an electric hair dryer or a steam iron, but be careful not to touch the fabric because that could damage it! If you are experiencing water damage from flooding, for example, talk with professional cleaners who will know how best to dry out each section individually.
