Tips for cleaning different types of floors
The Linoleum floor can be cleaned with any
solvent that is not chemical-based. Using aggressive scrubbing
pad must be avoided. Avoid using alkaline products on these
type of tiles as it causes the floor to turn yellow very soon.
Whatever be the type of floor, test clean a
small tiled area first and see the effects before using a
floor cleanser on the entire floor.
The floors with unglazed floor tiles can be
cleaned by vacuum cleaners. They should be dusted very often.
Use a mild detergent and little water to clean them.
The Hardwood type of floors can be cleaned
with oil soap and follow the instructions as mentioned on it.
Before using oil soap, make sure that the tiles are free from
dirt and dust. Use a moist mop or a sponge mop to apply on the
floor but do not allow it to wet excessively. Let the floor
dry before using it again. Regular cleaning of such floors
will get rid of the scratches of the tiles.
Sweep concrete floors often and use any
degreaser or detergent based cleaner on them.
