Chemical cleaners often have unpleasant odors and unsafe fumes. So during the time when it’s too cold to open your windows, it’s important to know how to effectively and safely clean your home’s floors.

Cleaning wood, vinyl and tile floors

Ceramic tile:

After sweeping or vacuuming a tile floor thoroughly it can be easily cleaned with a little warm water. Using a sponge mop is not a good idea since they have a tendency to deposit dirt into the grout lines. Instead, try a microfiber mop. Fill a bucket with warm water and a use a damp microfiber mop to easily and effectively clean your ceramic tile floors.

Clean your hardwood floors by steeping two teabags in boiling water for a few minutes. Tannic acid contained in the tea will leave a beautiful shine on your floors. Pour the warm, not boiling, tea into a bucket and use a damp, not soaked, soft cloth to wash the floors. You never want to apply too much water to wood floors. You can easily remove any scratches by taking a crayon that matches the color of your floor and simply rub it over the scratch. Afterward, using a blow dryer, heat the scratch where the crayon was used and finish the repair by buffing it with a clean, soft cloth.

Vinyl floors:
Vinyl floors are quickly and easily cleaned by adding Borax to a bucket of warm water and mopping. Follow the directions on the Borax container for the right amount.
