However, there are things that you can do to make your floors more durable: keep them clean and tidy, every day, if possible. If you’re busy, or you simply dislike housecleaning, then this might seem like a lot of work. But, with a bit of effort and planning, that is entirely doable. So for that reason, here are some tips and tricks that will help you keep your floors tidy and nice, every day.

Have a cleaning schedule

If regular floor maintenance is difficult for you then it is best to come up with a cleaning schedule that will make things easier for you. For example, if you have free time on weekends then make that your cleaning day. Once you get into it, you won’t need a lot of time to clean the floors effortlessly. Sure, you don’t have to pick weekends, instead, pick any day that works for you. That will make it easier for you to clean the floors and keep them nice.

Don’t expose them to direct sunlight all the time

Direct sunlight can damage the quality of your floors. Therefore, be sure to shut your blinds in order to protect the finishes of your floors. Protecting the floors from harsh sunlight will also help you avoid discoloration and fading. Sometimes the sunlight on your floor can make the space seem friendly and warm, but also be sure to protect the floors from the damage caused by excessive sunlight. 

Be careful when cleaning stone flooring

Stone floors are elegant and timeless, plus they can last a lifetime. However, it is crucial to treat them properly in order to avoid damaging them. You shouldn’t use acidic or alkaline cleaners as they can be too aggressive. Instead of them, be sure to use cleaning agents made specifically for stone. Always read the instructions and guidelines before you start using any cleaning agent and also make sure you get the sponge or brushes with soft bristles. They’ll activate the cleaning agent properly.

Use the best vacuum cleaner

Not all vacuum cleaners are made equal. So it is in your best interest to choose the best vacuum cleaner that will ensure your floors are spotless and dust-free. There are different models to pick from, and it is recommended you choose an automatic vacuum cleaner that will clean your entire house efficiently. New vacuum cleaners have powerful suction which means no crumb or a spec of dust will be able to escape. If the freedom of movement matters to you a lot, then be sure to opt for a wireless product that will also be allergy-friendly, in order to make sure you feel your best and healthiest in your own home.

Get the best cleaning supplies

Sure, you can use any product that comes your way, but the best results are achieved by using the best cleaning supplies for your houses, floors included. This is due to the fact that better products contain more active ingredients that can successfully remove stains, grime, and dirt, which will make your floors super clean and shiny all the time. Using the best products that you can find will surely make floor cleaning a much easier process.

Always clean stains and sips immediately

If you happen to spill something, then you should make sure to clean it immediately. First, absorb the spill with dry paper or a cloth, and then wipe it with a wet cloth and a cleaning agent, if that’s necessary. There is no need to scrub the spill as that can cause further damage, especially if the floor finish is sensitive, to begin with. When it comes to carpets, it is also important to clean gently, because scrubbing can destroy or fray the carpet’s fibers.

Make sure the floors are of the right materials

Not every flooring is equally easy to maintain. For example, carpets might be plush and add warmth to the room. But they’re also difficult to clean and maintain. That type of work always requires professional cleaning. If you have pets, then maintaining the floors is even more difficult. Therefore, having tiles is an excellent solution if you’re a pet owner. This solution is super beneficial in that case, as you can easily sweep the pet hair, and then vacuum everything that’s left.

If nothing works, get the new flooring

This might seem like a substantial investment, and it definitely is, especially if you’re currently living on a budget. But, if your current flooring is giving you headaches, then it is a clear sign to choose a new flooring that will be easy to maintain. Some old flooring is already damaged which is why maintaining them is constant work. This is why opting to install new flooring will make sure that you’ll never have problems with maintaining them. As mentioned already, tiles are the most convenient solution, but you also opt for laminate flooring.


These tips will help you keep your floors nice and tidy, no matter how busy you might be. As long as you’re consistent and informed, your floors will look pretty, shiny, and clean at all times. Be sure to invest in quality cleaning supplies, and get a vacuum cleaner that can deal with every type of dust and dirt, and your floors will look amazing.
