Maintaining Your Investment: Essential Flooring Care Tips From P&L Tile Professionals

Congratulations on investing in beautiful flooring from P&L Tile! Now that you have your new floors installed, it is important to keep them in top condition to ensure they last for years to come. Our team of experts has put together some essential flooring care tips to help you maintain your investment and keep your floors looking as good as new.

1. Regular Cleaning One of the easiest ways to maintain your flooring is to regularly clean it. Depending on the type of flooring you have, different cleaning methods may be required. For example, hardwood floors should be swept or vacuumed regularly to remove dirt and debris, while tile floors may need to be mopped with a mild cleaning solution. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's recommendations for cleaning your specific type of flooring.

2. Prevention is Key To prevent damage to your flooring, it is important to take some preventative measures. Place doormats at all entryways to trap dirt and moisture before it reaches your floors. Use felt pads under furniture legs to avoid scratches and dents. Avoid wearing high heels or shoes with cleats on hardwood floors to prevent damage.

3. Use Area Rugs Area rugs are a great way to protect high-traffic areas of your flooring from wear and tear. They can also add a pop of color and style to your space. Be sure to use rug pads underneath area rugs to prevent them from slipping and causing accidents.

4. Avoid Harsh Chemicals When cleaning your floors, avoid using harsh chemicals that can damage the finish or material. Opt for gentle cleaning solutions that are safe for your specific type of flooring. If you are unsure about which products to use, consult with our experts at P&L Tile for recommendations.

5. Maintain Proper Humidity Levels Humidity levels can greatly affect certain types of flooring, such as hardwood. To prevent warping, buckling, or gaps in your hardwood floors, maintain proper humidity levels in your home. Use a humidifier in the winter months and a dehumidifier in the summer months to keep your floors in top condition.

6. Schedule Professional Maintenance Lastly, don't forget to schedule regular professional maintenance for your flooring.
