The flooring in your home is one of the most visible, and abused, surfaces in your house. Not only do people walk all over it, they spill, drop, bounce, and drag across it. If your flooring could speak, what would it say about you? Would it tell people you abuse it on a regular basis or that you take good care of it? If you need new flooring in Bradenton, FL, keep in mind that you’ll need something that will hold up against the worst your family can dish out.
One of the best lessons to teach your children is that if a drink or food item has sugar in it, and they spill it on the hardwood or tile floor, they will need to use water to clean it up. Nothing leaves streaks on the floor like juice or milk; milk being the worst because it can also smell. If wiped up with a dry towel, much of the sugary substance will remain on the floor and get sticky. Sticky areas attract dirt and grime. Wiping them clean the first time helps keep the whole floor looking great.
Watch how you hold that can of beans. If you drop it on the floor, it could put a dent in your hardwood or crack your tile. Many people think that their tile floors are immune to damage because they are made from stone or other thick substances. However, tiles, though made from tough material, are sliced thin. They are rigid and unforgiving and if tapped or smacked by an object they will break or crack. Do your best to protect your floors and keep the cracks out of your tile and the dings out of your wood floor.
One of the worst things you can do for a wood floor is draw something across it. Even if you’re dragging a blanket, there are small granules underneath that can scratch your hardwood flooring in Bradenton, FL.
