Choose the best floor care solutions for your flooring type

In high-traffic areas, even the most resilient floor will collect dirt and debris over time. If you want to get your floor really clean — and keep it that way —  and regular cleaning and routine maintenance are essential. By choosing cleaning solutions specially formulated for your flooring type, you’ll avoid sticky and unsightly residues and damage. 

At Carpet Call, you’ll find a wide range of floor care products that are compatible with the hard flooring, carpets and rugs we offer.

Rugs and carpet

When dirt, dust, pet hair, liquids and other debris get trapped in a carpeted surface, they can dull the color of your flooring and contribute to indoor air quality issues. Although many natural and synthetic carpet and rug materials are designed to resist staining, they still need freshening up with regular cleaning. We stock all the right floor care products keeping carpets and rugs looking like new:

How do you maintain a floor?

Regular cleaning and maintenance is the best way to keep your floor finish looking great while extending the lifespan of the material. Each type of flooring has different care needs, so the best thing to do is learn about do’s and don’ts related to the types of flooring in your own home.

How often should you wash your hard floors?

You can remove crumbs, pet hair and other particles from your hard flooring with weekly sweeping, vacuuming or dry mopping. For a deeper clean, you’ll want to use a suitable floor cleaner and mop every other week or so. Just keep in mind that certain hard flooring materials shouldn’t be exposed to excessive moisture or harsh bristles.

Placing doormats and rugs in high-traffic areas can help keep your hard flooring free from messy footprints as well, meaning washing will be less work.

How often should you clean your carpets?

Modern carpet materials are designed to withstand wear and tear, so they require fairly minimal maintenance. The rule of thumb is to vacuum once per week — or twice per week for areas that are prone to collecting dirt and debris from heavy foot traffic.

If you notice a spill or potential stain, make sure to clean up the spill immediately and follow up with a spot cleaning solution to avoid lasting stains. 

Finally, it’s advisable to have your carpets steam cleaned every year to two years. This will help wash the fibres and remove dirt trapped in your carpet that a vacuum cleaner can’t reach. Your carpets will look as good as new afterwards.

What are the best floor cleaning techniques?

While there are lots of ways to go about cleaning your floors, here are some tips that can make cleaning faster and more effective:

  • Vacuum hard flooring without the brush activated and use vacuum cleaner attachments to remove debris from baseboards and other hard-to-reach spots.
  • Use a specially formulated floor cleaner and floor polish to bring out the shine in your timber flooring or synthetic floor.
  • Soak up carpet and rug spills with an absorbent sponge or cloth before scrubbing, to avoid creating an accidental stain.

What is the best thing to use to mop floors?

Mopping with a dry mop first is the first step for collecting crumbs, pet hair, dirt and other particulate material. Follow up with a damp mop with a sprayer to give hard flooring a thorough wash, remove sticky residue and bring out the surface’s shine.
