To help you out, we have compiled a list of expert tips for maintaining your new floors.

1. Regular Cleaning One of the most important aspects of maintaining your floors is keeping them clean. For hardwood floors, use a microfiber mop or a vacuum with a hardwood floor attachment to remove dust and dirt. For carpeted floors, vacuum regularly and spot clean any spills immediately. For tile or laminate floors, a mixture of warm water and mild detergent is usually all you need.

2. Use Area Rugs and Mats To protect high-traffic areas and prevent wear and tear on your floors, consider using area rugs and mats. Place them at the entrance of your home, in front of sinks, and in hallways to catch dirt and moisture before it reaches your floors. Be sure to shake them out regularly and clean them as needed.

3. Avoid Water Damage Water can be a flooring's worst enemy, causing warping, staining, and mold growth. Avoid mopping hardwood floors with excess water and clean up spills immediately. In bathrooms and kitchens, use rugs around sinks and appliances to catch any splashes or drips.

4. Trim Pet Nails If you have pets in your home, be sure to keep their nails trimmed to prevent scratches on hardwood, laminate, or vinyl floors. Place rugs under pet feeding areas to catch food and water spills, and consider using claw covers to protect your floors.

5. Protect from Furniture Heavy furniture can dent or scratch your floors, especially if dragged across them. Use furniture pads or coasters under the legs of sofas, chairs, and tables to prevent damage. When rearranging furniture, lift rather than drag to avoid scratches.

6. Follow Manufacturer's Guidelines Different types of flooring have different maintenance requirements, so be sure to follow the manufacturer's guidelines for cleaning and care. This will ensure that you don't void any warranties and that your floors stay looking their best for years to come.
