Keep Your Hardwood Floors Looking Brand New!

Hardwood floors look magnificent in our homes, especially when they’re brand new, or at least freshly refinished. But we can definitely achieve comparable results with a bit of elbow grease, and a consistent cleaning routine!

 

Sponging Every Spill

 

Messes cannot be avoided altogether; they’re inevitable. But what we can do to help our hardwood flooring is clean up spills as soon as we find them! After all, whatever has tumbled onto the hardwood flooring will definitely stay there until it’s picked up- so do it now! Don’t put it off.

 

Destroying Dust Mites

 

A major disadvantage to having hardwood floors is, well, dust. It’s visible against the hardwood, everywhere, and seemingly impossible to conquer. To keep a decent handle on dust, invest in a dry dusting mop! Dust mops are incredibly easy to use, and they can easily reach underneath furniture and in between tight spaces.

 

Vacuuming With a Vengeance

 

Yes, you can vacuum hardwood floors. So if your floors or overdue for a dust mopping, but you’re short on time, just use a vacuum cleaner! Vacuuming is a major time saver. Just be sure to empty the filter frequently to avoid clogs.

 

Alternatively, if you don’t own a vacuum, you can use a soft bristled broom.

 

Last But Not Least...

 

A routine mopping does a hardwood floor a whole lot of good! With your choice of mop and a cleaning solution specially formulated for hardwood flooring, carefully mop over the grain of the wood. If you begin from the farthest corner, and work toward the door, you won’t have to worry about leaving footprints behind!

The Steam Team is made of trusted professionals who’ve accumulated years of experience in a variety of cleaning and restoration projects. The Steam Team is precisely what you're looking for!

Commercial Cleaning: Keeping Your Restrooms Clean

Restrooms can sometimes be a harsh reality. In order to continuously keep commercial restrooms clean and sanitary, it’s likely that you’ll have to implement systems or bring in outside help.

Bringing in Outside Help

 

Deep Cleaning

One of the most common complaints with cleaning high-traffic restrooms is keeping the tile and grout clean. In some cases, this could on the floor, backsplash, or even countertops. Grout can be especially difficult to clean around moisture, but steam cleaning will undoubtedly do the trick.

Targeting Trouble Areas

Of course the tile and grout aren’t the only areas that need attention around the bathroom - especially with how damage-prone the environment already is (from the constant waterflow). Cleaning around the bathroom becomes much more efficient when you target the sinks, floors, counters, toilets, trash cans, etc.

 

Additionally, if you take preventive measures to keep these target areas from collecting grime, you’ll find that a deep clean can turn a sort-of clean restroom into a room that looks brand-spanking-new!

Cover Every Surface

Last, but certainly not least, don’t leave any surface behind! When you make sure to touch every surface before leaving the restroom, you’re guaranteed a spotless environment.

 

Now, remember when we talked about bringing in outside help? That’s really the secret to ensuring that your commercial restrooms are continuously spotless. It’s not as daunting as you may think - in fact, it’ll take a huge stress off of your shoulders!
