Preparing Your Flooring for Spring




Ah, spring! It is almost here in North Texas. It is a season where flowers bloom, birds chirp melodiously, and our homes bask in the refreshing warmth of the sun. However, with spring’s arrival in full swing, it’s also time to rejuvenate our living spaces, and particularly, our floors, which have faithfully endured the winter’s trials. At Steamwave Carpet Cleaning, we understand the subtleties of carpet and hardwood floor maintenance as the seasons change. Here’s a guide for Rockwall homeowners to effortlessly prepare their flooring for the radiant spring season.

Floor Preparation

1. Bid Farewell to Winter’s Residue:

For Carpets:

  • Vacuum Vigorously: Begin with thorough vacuuming to remove dust, dirt, and remnants of winter.
  • Spot Cleaning: Address spills and stains promptly with gentle, carpet-safe cleaners.
  • Deep Cleaning: Consider professional carpet cleaning to remove deeply embedded dirt and allergens.

For Hardwood Floors:

  • Sweep and Dust: Ensure all grit and dirt that can scratch the floor surface are removed.
  • Mop Wisely: Use minimal water and ensure no standing water is left on the hardwood.
  • Polish Periodically: Restore the shine and provide an additional protective layer.

2. Welcome Mats: The Unsung Heroes

  • Strategically Place Mats: Ensure all entrances have high-quality mats to reduce the influx of dirt.
  • Regular Cleaning: Shake out, wash, or vacuum mats regularly to maintain their efficacy.

3. Implement a ‘Shoes-Off’ Policy:

  • Encourage family members and guests to remove shoes upon entering to preserve the cleanliness of your floors.

4. Groom Your Pets:

  • Frequent Grooming: Reduce pet hair and dander by maintaining your pet’s coat through regular grooming.
  • Paw Patrol: Ensure paws are cleaned before pets enter to protect your floors from dirt and scratches.

5. Utilize Window Treatments:

  • Use blinds, curtains, or shades to protect your flooring from the harshness of direct sunlight which can cause discoloration over time.

6. Shift Your Furniture:

  • Occasionally rearranging furniture will redistribute the wear on your carpet and hardwood, ensuring even usage and aging.

7. Essential Repairs:

  • Attend to any noticeable damage, loose carpet fibers, or creaky hardwood boards promptly to prevent further deterioration.
