Your floors expose your fortune. This may sound cryptic but I believe that even if you have a teeny living space – immaculate, spotless floors will make your home look like a million bucks. Here’s how to dazzle by giving your floors the Spring glow treatment without breaking the bank.
Give your carpets the Spring Glow clean
A regular vacuum removes surface dust but to achieve that all-over spotless Spring glow, you need to deep clean your carpets down to its very core. Not only will this refresh your carpets, but it will also lengthen its lifespan. Even if it doesn’t look like your carpeting needs a thorough clean, it will make a noticeable difference once you’ve done it.
You can give your carpet a shampoo and wash yourself or you can rent a steam cleaner for a deeper clean. Use specialised carpet stain remover for removing stains but remember to spot test any products first.
When vacuuming, make sure you vacuum the edges of the carpet, around skirting boards and under furniture. The crevice tool which comes with the vacuum is a great way of getting to hard-to-reach spots. If you have a thick carpet, try using the vacuum’s power brush to suck up stubborn dirt, dust and pet hair.
Give your Hard Floors the Spring glow
The best way to make your hard floor sparkle is to use top-quality cleaning implements. Don’t waste your time, effort and money on cheap brooms or mops that disintegrate after one or two goes. Instead, I recommend the Vileda Easy Wring & Clean Turbo Spin Mop, Australia’s Number One Mop, which gives a superior cleaning performance every time!
What sets the Vileda Easy Wring & Clean Turbo Spin Mop apart from the rest, is that this mop removes over 99% of bacteria with just water. This means there’s no need to use harsh chemicals to get a thorough clean.
The premium Vileda Easy Wring & Clean Turbo Spin Mop set contains a 100% microfibre mop and spin wring bucket with a foot pedal for easy and effortless wringing and quicker floor cleaning. I love that there is no need to get my hands wet or dirty.
The Easy Wring & Clean Turbo Spin Mop is very versatile and is designed for optimal cleaning of all types of hard floors – including delicate surfaces, like parquets and laminate.
Using this mop is the most cost-effective way to get your floors looking spick and span all the time. You get your Spring Glow every season of the year.
Repair And Reseal
Small cracks, grooves and dents can make your floor look a bit worn out and shoddy. To give your floors the Spring glow makeover, it’s a good opportunity to repair and reseal your floors to smooth out those scratches and stains. It’s a bit more of a mission but worth it in the end. The process involves sanding down your floors, buffing them and then waxing and polishing your hardwood floors to make them look new again.
For natural stone floors, it’s a good idea to apply a stone sealer, which makes the floors more resistant to water and stains. This sealant also makes these floors easier to clean.
