The 3 Simple Steps To Keeping Your Floors Clean

As we all know keeping floors clean can be an absolute nightmare. It is one of the first places that gathers dirt, dust and grime. It’s usually a full-time job trying to keep it spotless. So if you are the type of person who comes home to find that your floors have become dirty even though you only cleaned them the day before, then this article is for you. It will teach some really important actionable steps that you can take to make sure that the problem does not reoccur.

The first step and frankly the most obvious solution is to start using mats at the front and back doors. You will also want to implement a very strict “no-shoes in the house” rule. At the end of the day, most dirt is brought into the house on the soles of shoes. So by stopping people from wearing shoes inside the house, you are going to make keeping your floors looking great, a whole lot easier.

In my house, we have flip-flops that we wear around the house in the summer and slippers in the summer. We leave these at the front door and put them on or take them off as we come and go.

Another culprit for bringing dirt inside is family pets. Dogs and cats love playing around in the mud. Before allowing them inside, make sure you clean their paws thoroughly. At first they may find it strange but after a while they will get into a routine.

One top tip sent to me by a reader is to clean as you go. When you see a small speck of dirt or you spill something, then handle it straight away. Don’t let it sit there and get worse. This type of attitude can take a lot of discipline but eventually it will become a habit for you. That is unless of course you plan on hiring professional cleaners.

I like to sweep or mop the floors of my home at least once a week. I do it every Sunday evening right before everyone goes to bed, for the busy week ahead.

Then during the week I may give certain rooms or certain areas a light cleaning.

Make sure that you also keep enough detergent or soap on hand so that when the time comes to clean, you have all the tools you need. There is nothing worse than spilling something but not having any of the necessary tools to get the job done. A good mop, bucket, gloves and some old rags are essential too.

If you are short on time then be sure to prioritise the most used areas of your house like the kitchen, living room, front and back entrances and the hallways. Of course if you’ve followed my guidelines set out in the first section and set aside a specific time to mop and sweep every weekend, then you’ll find it significantly easier to keep your floors clean.

Alright, that’s everything I know about floor cleaning! I really hope that you found this article interesting
