Tips For Protecting Your Floors

The floors in our homes are going to be a major focal point when you first walk in.  For this reason, you will want to make sure that they are looking nice and don’t have any noticeable imperfections.  When walking into your home you will typically have a fully carpeted floor which will lead into a living room or the main area of the house.  Another option that many people look at having is laminate wood flooring.

Throw rug

To help protect your floors is to use throw rugs.  These are small rugs that will take up some major real estate on your floors.  They can be done in a variety of sizes, colors and more.  Many people that use these rugs will have them at the entrance to a room where people can wipe their feet or they will have them around major areas that people will be sitting at, around couches and chairs.

Take off shoes

Another way that you can protect your floors is to ask people to take off their shoes before entering.  When we take off our shoes and put them into a designated area, we don’t have to worry about tracking dirt into the house.  This is a good idea for those that have allergies or just don’t have the time to constantly be cleaning floors.

Mop regularly

With a dry mop or a damp mop you can easily remove dust and dirt that has been tracked into the home.  You can also hit some spots that stand out from people that may have dropped something or otherwise created a spot that needs to be cleaned.

You want to be careful when you mop that you don’t user a lot of water.  The idea is just to break up the dirt and dust that is on the ground and make it shine.
